We're having a wonderful summer and we hope you are as well!  Or, if you're in Australia, we hope you're having a wonderful winter.  Wherever you may be, we hope the month of July 2014 was a fun, safe, and great one for you and your loved ones.
We added plenty of new content to LDD this past month, including two brand new features!  Every Thursday we now post a guest article from one of four new guest writers.  Each guest writer practices a unique domestic discipline dynamic and has a unique story to tell, and we're excited to follow along on their journeys!  In addition to that new feature, we've also started posting a personal post every Sunday.  It has been a lot of fun so far and we hope you're enjoying both of these new columns. :)
If you missed anything this past month, here's the rundown of new content:

Monthly Recap: February 2014 (Plus a Brand New Free Download!)

  February 2014 was a great month for Learning Domestic Discipline.  We had a Valentine's Day promotion, a brand new downloadable podcast, a new downloadable packet, and a number of articles that hopefully helped (and will continue to help) a few domestic discipline couples out there.  Given that this is our first monthly recap of the year, we have a few special things to include in it as well.
  The first things we want to include are the January 2014 articles.  We had our baby right at the end of January, so we weren't able to write a January 2014 recap.  We'll make up for that in this monthly recap.  The second thing we want to include is a brand new download!  You'll see it at the end of this post.  And third, we want to make one slight modification to our 2014 posting schedule.
  Originally we were going to do a Mailbag Monday article every other week as part of our new 2014 posting schedule.  On second thought, we want to do one every week instead.  It's perhaps our most popular column, and those submitting questions shouldn't have to wait weeks to have them answered.  We're also going to post Mailbag Monday articles on United States holidays that happen to fall on a Monday.  So, look for Mailbag Monday articles every Monday going forward, starting tomorrow. :)
  Alright, let's get the recap going, shall we?  Here's a recap of the January and February articles here at Learning Domestic Discipline:
January 4th -- Transforming Your Relationship: A Comprehensive Look Into the Domestic Discipline Lifestyle - We've released our brand new eBook!  We're really excited about it and this post tells you all about it.  Check it out!
January 8th -- New Year's Resolutions 2014: Domestic Discipline Style - We outline our New Year's Resolutions for 2014 (as they relate to domestic discipline) and challenge you with a few as well.  Are you up for them?
January 12th -- Random Updates From Learning Domestic Discipline - This brief post touches on a few things going on in our lives, and and includes a couple of LDD updates.
January 15th -- Why Use Spanking Implements? - I (Clint) outline six reasons couples choose to use spanking implements when conducting a punishment spanking in a domestic discipline relationship.  Do you have other reasons to add in the comments?
January 18th -- Presenting the Learning Domestic Discipline Couples Challenge Packet! - All 12 LDD Couples Challenges are now in one convenient spot.  Download your free copy today and take the 12-month challenge!
January 30th -- Our Baby Boy Has Arrived! - He's here, he's here, HE'S HERE!  We're proud parents again, and we're so excited that our second baby boy is healthy and doing well.  He's so cute (as the picture in this post illustrates)! :)
February 3rd -- Mailbag Monday: Week 34 - Do spankings always need to be done bare bottomed?  How do you respectfully tell your HoH their lecturing is lacking?  How are we (Clint and Chelsea) going to explain the domestic discipline dynamic to our kids?  We answer these questions in the latest round of Mailbag Monday questions.
February 7th -- Five Things Friday: Love Is In The Air Edition - Both of us contribute to this Five Things post!  I talk about not spanking in a while, Chelsea gives you a new DD novel to read, and we celebrate an anniversary!
February 12th -- Why Spanking is a Part of a Domestic Discipline Relationship - Why do people include spanking in their relationships?  We outline several reasons why for anyone looking into the lifestyle, or anyone that may be curious about the spanking aspect of it.
February 15th -- A Brand New Podcast: Types of Spankings - We discuss seven - count them - SEVEN different types of spankings in our latest free downloadable podcast.  Give it a listen and let us know what you think!
February 21st -- Five Things Friday: The "We Survived!" Edition - A lot of things have been going on in our personal lives, and as the title suggests, we've survived the first two months of 2014.  Read all about what has been happening with us in this post.
February 26th -- Abuse of Power in Domestic Discipline - A recent concern of ours prompted this article.  We talk about why it's so important that a head of the household refrain from abusing their power in a domestic discipline relationship.
  Whew!  That was a lot to cover!  If you happened to miss anything over the course of the past two months, hopefully this little recap gets you all up to speed. :) 
2013SaturdayStoryImage
  And, as promised, we're offering a brand new free download!  The 2013 Saturday Stories Packet is now available to download for free from the Learning Domestic Discipline Download site. The packet contains over 15 guest posts on a variety of domestic discipline topics including beginning domestic discipline, domestic discipline boot camp, and more. CLICK HERE to download your copy! 
  We want to take this opportunity to, once again, thank you for being patient with us as we adjust our lives (and our schedules) to the new baby.  We also want to thank those of you who have expressed their congratulations and support.  It truly means so much to us.
  Thanks for being a part of Learning Domestic Discipline this February!  We hope to see you in March (and beyond) as we continue to bring you new domestic discipline content.  See you then!

What's New at Learning Domestic Discipline for 2014

whatsnewfor2014
  
2014 is finally here! It's hard to believe how quickly 2013 flew by, but we're looking forward to a great year and we hope you're as excited as we are about all the new changes to Learning Domestic Discipline that you can see both now, and as the year progresses. We have a lot of fun projects in store for this year, and we're looking forward to making this year the best one yet for Learning Domestic Discipline.

So, what is new to kick off the month? Well, let us show you.

Here's an overview of the new stuff on the site, and a sneak peek of what's to come:
  • By now you have probably noticed that the blog looks a little bit different. We re-did the blog, in honor of 2014, with a new design and layout that we think/hope is easier to navigate.  It also gives us more space to include all of our 2014 projects as they roll out.  We may still make a few minor changes here and there, but for the most part the new re-design is complete.  We're anxious to hear what you think!
  • Throughout the month of December we have been working hard on a new feature called The Learning Domestic Discipline Directory.  This feature is aimed to make finding information on domestic discipline significantly easier for readers.  It will archive every one of our posts (trust us, there's a lot) making them easier to find, and the will be broken down by more specific categories.  The directory is almost complete (we're putting the final touches on it this weekend!) and should launch any day now.  We'll update this post, and the blog, when it launches!
  • We made some major changes to the Learning Domestic Discipline Posting Schedule for 2014.  We know how much our readers appreciate the LDD downloads, eBooks, podcasts, and more.  So, we will be incorporating many more of those (two a month!!) into our schedule this year, and we'll be moving a few other things around.  Don't worry, all of our series (such as Mailbag Monday, Five Things Friday, and Saturday Stories) will still be included, they're just on a different schedule.  We'll also be cutting the weekly recaps down to one large monthly recap in an effort to give us more time to focus on some of the big projects we're working on for the year. The new posting schedule will begin on Monday January 6th.  Click here to review it and make sure you're up to date.
  • Since we'll be including many more downloads into our schedule this year, we will also be doing more Frequently Asked Questions Podcasts as a result.  We've done one so far (and it was a big hit!) so we'd love to incorporate several more into the year's schedule, but we need your help to make that happen.  So, from now on, you can submit questions for either Mailbag Monday (the same way as before) or to be answered on our next FAQ Podcast.
  • On the right hand side of the blog (on the new website) you may have noticed a new progress bar feature.  This will allow you to stay up to date with what we're currently working on (or, one of many things we're currently working on) and see the progress of that specific project.  We're planning several major projects this year, so we hope that this will make it easier for readers to see what is coming next, and approximately when they can expect it to be completed.
  And finally, we're starting 2014 off with a bang, and with something that has been in the works for what seems like forever.  It's our brand new eBook!  Here's an overview of the new eBook:
