Seekers website started life as a small MSN community in 2001,
when we were running our original chatroom. In fact the "comm"
was actually there before we opened the Seekers Chat Room, as
I had started it when I decided to begin my search for a submissive.
The original community was called Master Gharlane's Search, and
it remained with that name till earlier this year. At that time
we changed the name of the group from it's original Master Gharlane's
Search to D/s Seekers Group. The msn group site is long gone now.
One of the reasons we changed the name was so that the group rating
could be changed (MSN changed all adult groups to members only)
so that people could access the site without having to join.
Over time it became known
as "Seekers Comm", and thanks to cleo who is the best
person I know with MSN groups, she created a 250 page site which
in my view was almost unequalled in MSN. cleo spent many days
and weeks over 2 years putting the group together, and the MSN
group received nearly 24,000 hits in two years to 2004; no mean
feat in my view for a "small" MSN comm.
In 2003 when MSN were upgrading
their chat services and groups we decided that we were not prepared
to lose the group site we had built just because MSN decided they
might shut groups down, or start charging to use them, and we
set about the task of taking D/s Seekers onto the web.
Learning as we went, we built
a website from scratch, which was pretty simple, and fairly boring,
although at the time we were quite proud of it.We paid for our
own web hosting with a commercial provider, purchased the "seekers.org.uk"
domain and launched "seekers on the web". Two months
after this, one Friday evening we sat down together and decided
that we needed a better look to Seekers site. cleo had this vision
of how the site would look, and I managed to create something
like that vision. Between us, always working as a team, we have
built what I believe to be one of the best D/s resource sites
on the web now. We have a Seekers "corporate image"
which was created by us, using our own graphics, and ideas. The
Seekers site is in its 4th incarnation now, and is in my view
a great looking site, as well as one which provides useful, and
more importantly easily read information.
At the outset of the website
we decided that we wanted the site to be very different: too many
sites simply reproduce the same articles over and over. Everywhere
you look you see the self same articles and pieces, time and time
again. cleo trawled the net, looking for new and different articles.
Frankly there weren't too many so we decided to write them ourselves,
and that's what we did. As well as that some friends who have
been previously "unpublished" on the net provided us
with pieces for the site for which we are eternally grateful.
Of course there are a few
articles that everyone has that always bear reading, and which
are much published, and we have kept those. The site is always
growing, and we try to add stuff as often as we can, so there's
usually something new to look at. If anyone has articles or ideas
then by all means let us know, because we are always on the lookout
for new writings for Seekers.
The whole site is linked together
under the "Seekers" domain which we own, and you will
see that most of the other sites we are involved with are all
run as sub-domains from Seekers.
Of course there is also the
Seekers chat room: For a couple of years now we have used the
Buzzen network for our chat room, and recently we chose to rebrand
the room as "Absolute Submission" after cleo's own website.
Along with that we have also created our own internet radio station,
entitled DsFM which plays music 24/7 and where there are DJ's
from the chatroom.
Seekers is our labour of love,
and always will be. It has enabled us to meet and make many good
and long lasting friends since its inception. Yes we have had
arguments, and fallings out with people too. That will always
What I would suggest is that
if you have not looked at Seekers website before that you take
some time to have a read through it. There is much there of interest
to everyone in the D/s lifestyle. I am very proud to have been
instrumental in building the Seekers sites, but would also say
that without my cleo, they would not be anything like as good
as they are. She is the vision, the one who sees in her mind how
things should look, and is also the graphics expert. I for my
sins do the techie stuff, like trying to make the pages "look"
how cleo wants them. (who says subs don't get to order Doms about?
) The seekers website has had in excess of 400,000 hits on it
since 2004 when we added the counter, so all in all we are very
proud to say that "seekers" is both successful and enjoyed
by many. Thank you to everyone who has looked, and those who continue
