A DAY WITH THE MISTRESS TURNS 10!!!!


While we are gone, A Day with the Mistress Borghese will turn over to 10 years!!!!  So join us to celebrate🎈🎈🎈🎈🎈

Who would have thought all these years later people would still care what a gay guy, ex-drag queen, gin guzzling, man connoisseur, obsessed with sex, who travels, and tells dirty stories, and on occasional flashes you with undies shots would still give a shit!!!!  It had been tens years ago that my good friend and sister Mame, aka David Dust, got me to finally start a blog. She said you are nuts, and have many interests, and do things constantly. So I did, and while I still feature much men and drag, I have expanded to other subjects since....travel , sex, dating, holidays, occasional politico talk and visiting my neighborhood bitches. Amazing. You've been with me for two lay offs, travels, passing of pets, many, many ,many stories of men and dating, and a break up of a long term relationship. When I do ever stop, I think it will be neat to come back in my old age and read what interested me, and re read post and the funny comments, and it also acts as a moments diary for me as well.  And boy, have I had a lot of head, Huh.... headers I meant.
Some interesting things I researched. I've had 3,045 posts with 2,637,675 page views. That's a lot of smut readers! My blog trade look has always been a black background with my main color of pink. And the top 10 search words were 1-Adam Rodriguez, 2-Scary pumpkins, 3-Mistress Borghese,4-Sharon Needles, 5-Lady Bunny, 6-Alyssa Edwards, 7- Paloma Picasso, 8-naked Mistress Borghese, 9-Marco Dapper, 10-hot naked men.
Boy have we talked drag. 519 post of drag queens, with Lady Bunny at 55, Miss Richfield 1981 at 37, and Aunt Barbara at 26. Grande Dame of the Week came in at 183. And hunks? 363 posts with 194 visits to the Candy Shop. That's a lot of mens. We have seen 84 posts on food, 129 travel excursions, 119 posts on Philadelphia, 88 Buster Bolfig Borghese appearances, and lots of sex talk.

Most of my current readers have joined me in my fourth or fifth year and are still here!!! But I still have a many here since the beginning, like Coco de Mere, Bob, Mark in Delaware, Mahogany Empress, Pearly Gates, Dagny, The Dog's Mother, Cali-Boi. Mark, Dagny, David Dust and Dan were my very first commenters.
My staple posts still get comments, but my newest post, a simple concept that seems to be popular is-In Three Words. Of course my houseboys draw a lot of attention, as do my Late Night With... posts. You enjoy Silly Symphonies when I post them and Have You Met My Neighbors? And you still seems to like my Monday bitch posts, my travel posts and Stop the Car rants. But to date here were my top ten read posts. While I'm away, feel free to click on one if you missed it.


Never thought I would still be blogging all these years later.... but I truly THANK -YOU each for stopping by ...and making me chuckle with your comments. It's amazing how long some of you have been stopping in, even meeting some of you.... and I am truly tickled. And I look forward to new friends too. Even though online, it feels like a little family. Love and peace to you all.....see you soon. 

What was your favorite header????

And here to help cebabarte more is the fabulous Tallulah Bankhead.

  1. Wow! 10 years??? I thought I was doing good heading toward 7. Congratulations! It was CJ of Corey's Dark Corner who led me here, and I'm so very happy she did. You are an inspiration, becoming an institution.

    My favorite Header? The three sailors for Fleet Week. Next, the Bette Davis & Joan Crawford. But, regardless of the header, I love the posts. And, I get a kick out of some of the comments.

    Have yourself another good trip. Safe travels. I send you off with many thanks and warm hugs!!!

  15. As a relatively recent follower, I'm amazed you are so full of blogging beans after 10 years, Mistress! You're clearly a natural at spurting stuff out on a regular basis! Should we call ourselves "swallowers" instead of "followers"?
