Teamwork

Lately, it seems we've stumbled upon a way to make blogging a bit easier on both of us. Daddy has taken on more of an Editor-in -Chief role when it comes to our place and it's a role we're both very comfortable with. When mouse posts, she just saves a blog in our draft folder, Daddy then reads it, we discuss it if needed and then he'll schedule it for publishing. There are times that mouse has much to say -- then there are times she's really got nothing, like the previous week when mouse barely said boo.

Daddy doesn't edit or change mouse's words. Sometimes he'll just keep it in the draft folder and ask mouse to better clarify what it is she was trying to say. There are posts where Daddy will say, "Distracted again by shiny things, mouse?" and yes, most likely he'd be right. If mouse is angry with him -- he doesn't care -- he cares, of course, mouse is angry with him -- but he doesn't care if our readers know that mouse is angry -- or if he did something thoughtless. It doesn't happen very often or lately...but we've already talked about it -- should it come up. Because, mouse was a bit worried of giving him that kind of control over her words.

We began doing this in January of this year, and it's been a huge success. Since now mouse can blog by email and have things automatically saved (not published) he can read it (he does make time to read) then schedules the post publishing or just publishes it after he's read it. What he won't publish? Sometimes mouse will think of topics that seem interesting to post about, so she'll kinda prompt herself to write about it. It's never a complete post, more like a few words, like the bullet blog post she did. That was really a collection of random thoughts that just had no place as full posts. Yet in bullet form, made up a blog post! Thanks Daddy for suggesting that mouse do that (not to mention cleaned up the draft section a lot).

Lately, it seems because mouse hasn't been writing much. Daddy will schedule it for the next day or publish it immediately. He likes it when mouse writes more but understands it when she feels, she's got nothing to say. There's also something else...one of the blogs mouse reads has her just (said in her perfect imitation of Scarlett O'Hara in Gone with the Wind) pea-green with envy. The Dish with Ward and June, has a wonderful approach, each post is written by either of them, but they always include the others feelings into each post. The point of view is wonderful and very refreshing. Yes, more than once has mouse gotten a little pouty over the idea because it's like each post is written by both of them. Sometimes they write posts together going back and forth between them. Daddy's nixed the idea more than once, saying firstly, we don't want to copy or usurp their idea that makes their blog unique and stand out, but also for us, if Daddy feels he needs to say something publicly he can leave it in a comment. He just doesnt feel the need to add his voice to mouse's conversations.

Moreover, and this is something that makes mouse want to just turn this blog back to pink Daddy believes that others like Ward, DV and Sir J do a fine job of giving the Dominant or HOH voice than he could. This miffs mouse a little, since there are far too few dominant voices that she's found (and of course she's partial to Daddy's voice). These other bloggers do a wonderful job, and mouse can't be sure, but she thinks he feels adding his voice would be redundant.

Still, Daddy does talk with mouse and we do discuss the blogging world and mouse loves that!
It's also mouse's 4th year in the blogosphere! And Daddy said he's very proud of that.

  1. Congratulations on your 4th year in the blogosphere. You have your own unique and wonderful style of blogging, I am glad that you do it your way. My compliments to Omega for allowing you to write whatever is on your mind. It takes a strong person to do what he does.

    And, I see that Omega adds his comments whenever he wants to clarify a position or statement. I think that works very well.

    Thank you so much for sharing your experiences with us for the last four years.

    Hug,
    joey

    1. Thanks joey,

      And yes, of course your right. Daddy does sometimes comment on various things mouse has written. And that is very nice. We mostly discuss it at some point during the week and that's really nice too.

      Hugs,
      mouse

  2. Congratulations, mouse for so many years in the blogosphere. I am certainly glad you started posting and sharing your thoughts. So many of them have helped me. Thank you.

    The rest of your post I could have written similarly. Almost all of my posts are edited by Dave, my Sir. He goes over the grammar and spelling not changing my thoughts except to maybe reword something here or there so that what I want to say is clear. There are many times I write from emotion and the words get confused. Also like you I wish Sir would write posts with me. He has contributed a couple of times and it has made me very happy, but for the most part he feels that he doesn’t have much to say. Recently when we talked about a project he would like for me to do, writing out our story over the past couple of years and the changes in our lives, I asked him if he would contribute to the project by writing his thoughts and feelings at the end of each chapter so that there would be understanding from both our perspectives and he said he would; I’m thrilled.

    I cannot help but respect Sir for knowing where his strengths are and sticking with that; not being pushed by my desires. I am good at writing out my thoughts and feelings, he is very good at editing and helping clean it up where need be. In that we make a good team, much like you and Omega.

    1. Jacquie,

      Thanks for taking the time to write such a thoughtful comment. It's funny because mouse keeps trying to think of ways to involve Daddy more in the blogging aspect. LOL...

      Daddy doesn't really edit mouse's words...he just won't publish it if he feels it's waaay too disjointed.

      Sometimes mouse will take those disjointed ideas and work them into individual posts.

      It would be nice if he did edit what mouse wrote...LOL Clean up spelling or syntax errors...

      We tried that and he said it began to read more like him than mouse....LOL

      Thanks for commenting!

      Hugs,
      mouse

  3. wow! four years. I remember when I first found your blog and started reading. It was so different and in honesty, at that time when I was a bit newer and shinier to this world, your level of submission scared the pants off me. I didn't understand it. Now of course I like to think I do have more of an understanding. You have taught me a lot..most of all you taught me not to be afraid of what was inside me and to embrace it.

    Thank you L x

    1. Wow little!

      Thank you for such kind words and really this comment made mouse's day. That's really the most important thing -- embrace who you are and enjoy that.

      Thanks again,
      Hugs,
      mouse

  4. Congratulations on 4 years...I'm approaching my 4th year late in the summer. :) It's a milestone isn't it?

    I understand both points of view, that your D doesn't want to be redundant, and yours that he has his own point of expressing the dominant persona.

    There are too few blogging Doms, to be sure. :)

    Your system for publishing sounds fabulous!

    Happy 4th year, and nice to return again (and not be lurking!)

    gentle hugs to mouse,

    nilla

      Thanks so much for commenting...and ya 4 years is a bit of milestone. It is very nice...tho mouse can become a bit miffed when she thinks she wrote something totally brilliant and Daddy determines it's totally not ready for prime time...LOL

      Hugs,
      mouse

  5. Congratulations on that many years mouse. It is nice that Omega reviews and publishes your posts for you. Anything to make blogging easier is a blessing. One can only hope she finds more time to actively write once the move is complete, not much longer now. She suspects she will once she Daddy lays out all her time for her.

    Your blog is very unique and thought provoking and although Omega doesn't comment often when he does it makes it very special.

    1. dancing,

      Thanks so much for your lovely comments. It's hard to blog at times -- life gets busy and we, mouse thinks, get busy living life that we sometimes blogging just seems daunting. The idea of blogging is very much ingrained in mouse, but too many "posts" NEVER make it to the computer.

      Hugs,
      mouse

  7. H recently started commenting on my blog. I find his comments funny, but I wonder if people think that they are now in the middle of OUR conversation. Hmmm, maybe I should blog about it instead of skulking off to your blog to express my concerns in the comment section.

    My point is that I think we would all appreciate our others to speak, but they wisely know we need our space to say stuff. Sounds like you guys have a good system going. I like Ward and June's approach as well.

    Happy 4 years!

    1. Kitty,

      Yea, mouse totally loves June and Ward's approach too...and totally understand...

      In the past, sometimes Daddy and mouse would use the comments section....we might banter a little bit...or something like that...And it did quiet people from adding their own comments...

      Not all the time, but we did notice...

      It's about balance...we guess....

      Hugs,
      mouse

  9. Dearst little mouse -

    I am now caught up and add my congrats to your four years!! I guess I've been reading almost as long as you have been here. It's been wonderful to read how well you have evolved with Omega and how wonderfully you two communicate with each other. I am also always grateful to read your sweet comments on our blog, thank you! They always make me smile and feel blessed to have friends such as you and swan in our lives.

    Paladin and I have the same sort of communications that you and Omega have, and its the best I've ever had as well. He simply won't let me not tell him what's going on in my head. Since he gets to override me in regards to my health and welfare, and with my service connected PTSD getting triggered a lot lately by the news, it's been very important that I am honest with him. 'Nothing' simply isn't the truth. Like you mentioned a few posts back about 'feeling' a txt message, Paladin can feel mine. If he doesn't hear from me, he'll send a 'how are you doing Mystress?' message to check in. Then he can sense how I am doing. This means tons to me, and melts my heart that I have such an amazing Champion and Knight looking out for me. Today was one of those kinds of days. No day is as bad as it used to be for sure. I am certainly happier then I have ever been and better cared for then ever before. I read how you adore your Master, and I can relate, as I adore my beloved pet.. I do love the smell of him too, and how he sweeps me up when he comes home. And how I love it when he kneels and gives me his fealty and presents his collar. Huge love, huge pride. This will be our sixth year in July.. each one truly better then the one before. I am so glad that you are as happy as we are. I wish that for all. When this works, it is amazing indeed!

    Warm hugs,
    Mystress
