Today was the day that was going to start my break from blogging. Yet, last night, I changed my mind. About everything. Let me explain…
When the Post of Change was published on March 15th, I 100% agreed with it, and I still do, really. But I took it too far when I started the Save the Community movement. It started off as an innocent little hashtag to spread awareness to other blogs; to make the community more fair. There was Small Blog Awareness Day, with its lag-free multiverses and everything in between. But nothing seemed to work; the PHB still was controlling everything and getting most of the attention.
Yes, my friends, that is when I began to despise the PHB. I disliked it at first, but everyday I began hating it more and more, as I got angrier and angrier…
Sometime over my spring break, I came up with a much better solution: a protest. And oh, I mean a protest. Like, spam-rage-on-#lulz-and-get-demodded-protest. I even came up with a starting date for it: April 14th. I announced it on the StC chat, and kept it a secret everywhere else.
Around the same time, I started to question what the point of me blogging was. I was really mad at the community and I was still so embarrassed about liking Pop. Yet, I didn’t want to quit, at least not till Worlds comes out. So, I decided to take a break. I wrote a post and scheduled it for today, April 6th.
Before I knew it, it was April Fools Day. The day that could have ruined my reputation in this community forever. Look, I still don’t necessarily like the whole PopFeedz prank, but on that day, I absolutely hated it. I finally had something to blame the PHB for: a totally unoriginal prank. Yet most people seemed to love it! With that in mind, I wrote like 5 hate comments on the announcement post, wrote even worse ones on PopFeedz itself which never got approved, and said some rude things on the PHC. Let’s just say, I almost got demodded. But at the time, I had no regrets, zero.
I felt the same way for days after, but that all changed last night. I finally realized that there was no point in getting so upset about the PHB. It’s just a blog, nothing more, nothing less. Same goes for TCPB, and every other fan blog. And this community is meant to be a place where you can have fun and make friends, not enemies. I shouldn’t take everything so seriously, because it’s just causing a lot of harm to my online identity. I also accepted the fact that the fact that it’s not the authors’ fault that their blog is so dang popular.
So, I deleted the Save the Community server and cancelled the protest last night. The movement is over and it is never coming back. I’m relieved I stopped myself before it was too late, as the protest probably would have made the problem worse. Soon after, I deleted the post about me taking a break from TCPB. Last night I realized I didn’t want to stop blogging yet, so I deleted the post I had scheduled for this morning.
I just want to apologize to everyone. To the authors, I’m sorry I blamed you for ruining the community, again, it’s not your fault. To the people involved in Save the Community, I’m sorry for being so hateful. I promise you that something like this will never happen again. I really do. And while I can’t say for sure that I like the PHB, I will respect it for now on.
Let’s just move on and have fun for once.
Well, that’s all I have to say for now. I’ll see you in my next post, and until then, have a nice day.
