LDD's Weekly Recap: July 15th - 21st


  It was a very up and down week for Learning Domestic Discipline.  We've been dealing with some technical issues on the forthcoming LDD Download Site that have been very frustrating to say the least, however we're doing everything we can to work through them and launch as soon as possible.  We owe a big thank you to a very good friend of ours, Callie's husband (from the blog About Us) who offered us a helping hand all the way from Australia.  Thank you so much, H!  Your knowledge and expertise on the matter was, and is, very much appreciated.  We'll get the Download Site up and running soon!

  Despite the technical troubles, we still had a great week here at LDD.  Let's recap the week that was, shall we?  Yes, we shall.


Mailbag Monday: Week 13 - We offer our thoughts on handling movement from the submissive partner during a spanking, preemptively punishing before a couple is scheduled to be apart from one another for an extended period of time, and whether or not we think posting an ad on Craigslist to spank outside of the relationship is a good idea in this week's round of Mailbag Monday questions.

  Due to the aforementioned technical difficulties, there was no Wednesday post this week.  The announcement of the LDD Downloads site was scheduled, however given the issues we've had with its forthcoming launch, we've had to postpone the post.  It'll go live as soon as the Download Site is all set to go!

Five Things Friday: Lightning Bolt Edition - I (Clint) took over my wife's Five Things series this week to talk about a close call on our vacation, an interview Chelsea recently did for a radio show, and a new album from the most personally influential band of my lifetime.

  • The August LDD Newsletter is scheduled to go out on Friday, August 2nd, 2013.  To join the free mailing list, click here. (Your email is not used for any other purpose)
  • Voting for the LDD Retreat dates is now open!  Stop on by the LDD Retreat site to cast your vote!
  • It's mentioned in the Five Things post, but if you want a direct link to the radio interview Chelsea did, you can find it here.
That wraps up another week here at Learning Domestic Discipline!  See you next week!

LDD's Weekly Recap: July 1st - 7th

  We hope our fellow Americans enjoyed their holiday week (Independence Day) as much as we did!  We had a wonderful week both personally, and with Learning Domestic Discipline.  We added three new articles and sent out the July LDD Newsletter, all while enjoying fireworks and incredible food in the meantime.  Yes, we would say that qualifies as a pretty good week. :)

If you missed anything on the LDD blog, here's a recap of the latest happenings.


Mailbag Monday: Week 12 - We kicked off July by answering three tough questions including how to handle nervousness/hesitation before a spanking, if either one of us ever feel that I (Clint) am overbearing at times, and if DD can work if the HoH isn't responsible for every little thing.

I'm A Submissive Wife - Chelsea talks about how submission works in our marriage, and how her submissiveness to her husband doesn't necessarily mean she wants to be, or needs to be, "submissive" to everyone else.

Saturday Stories: "The Sun Break That Changed Our Marriage" - Guest writer Meredith, from the blog New Twist, After All These Years, shares how domestic discipline isn't just for the young, but the young at heart as well.

  • Don't forget to check out the July Couples Challenge as we kick off a new month.
  • We addressed the media articles one final time to put closure on the whole ordeal in a LDD Network blog post titled, "Beauty and the Daily Beast.(Available to LDD Network members only)
  • We tried our hardest to get all caught up on emails before we left for vacation, however we just couldn't get to them all.  We apologize for the delay if you're awaiting a response.  We'll be gone all week, but we'll return to LDD (and emailing) in the middle of July.  Thank you for your patience and understanding.
  • This past week, a dear member of blogland, Bas, passed away. Our deepest sympathies go out to his family, friends, and all those that loved and cared about him. His last entry brought tears to our eyes, and we're so saddened by the loss of a "Blogland Great". Rest peacefully, Bas. We will miss you. :(
  That wraps things up for the week!  Like we mentioned in the weekly updates, we'll be gone on vacation all next week, so we will not be able to respond to emails, comments, etc. until we return.  As always, we thank you for your continued readership and support.  It means so very much to us.  We hope you all have a safe, happy, and wonderful upcoming week!  See you again soon, friends!

LDD's Weekly Recap: June 24th - 30th


  Another week is in the books!  In fact, another month is in the books.  Learning Domestic Discipline closed out the final week of June with a brand new downloadable packet.  Did you get your copy?  If you missed anything over the past seven days, we'll get you all up to speed.


Learning Domestic Discipline Does Not Equal Christian Domestic Discipline - The title of this post says it all.  We attempt to clarify the difference between our website and the Christian Domestic Discipline websites out there in cyber land.

Presenting the Downloadable HoH Packet! - The latest free LDD download is for the all the HoHs out there.  It includes information on lecturing, punishments, reinforcement, and a whole lot more!  It's 50+ pages of information written specifically for the head of the household in your relationship/marriage.  Download your free copy today!  (Or, you know, whenever it's convenient for you.)

Five Things Friday: Holiday Weekend Edition - We prepare for a personal vacation, and domestic discipline bloggers all around the world rally behind a very special 6-year old little girl.  She's in our thoughts and prayers, and in our hearts.

  • The LDD Retreat date voting is on hold until things calm down from the "Rita Skeeter" incident.  Perhaps we should add "Rita Skeeter" to the LDD Glossary?
  • The July LDD Newsletter will be sent out on July 5th, 2013.  You can join the free mailing list right here. (Email is not used for any other purpose.)
  Onward we go into July!  We hope everyone has a wonderful upcoming week!
