One of the hidden jewels on this site is an e-Zine that ran on Yahoo Groups back when I first started exploring submission. It has since stopped production but the articles it contained are still valuable and worth a read so I thought I 'd bring them back to the forefront. They've been archived here with the editor's permission since the site was first created but I don't think many of you know just how wonderful they are. I'd like to showcase one each month until we've run them all again.

From the newsletter's description;

Current contributors are all slave or submissive identified, and in real time relationships where obedience and service are necessary, valued skills, achieved over time. I have been fortunate enough to meet these lovely people all over the country, and have delighted in great conversations, where we sometimes agree, and sometimes disagree, but are bound by a mutual respect of each other’s choices. Occasionally, words from the “other side” might be included as well, as many perspectives will be represented.

So here it is, the inaugural edition of Simply Service, produced by Bootpig all the way back in 2005.
