Fun, Hard Work: Rant Post!

Hi there,

Before I begin my post, I'm sure wondering how I mix fun with hard work... well you'll know why its together soon. This post is about fansites and I know I'm not an official Wizard101 Fansite owner but I am an official Pirate101 Fansite owner and know how hard it is to be one. I've been one for just about a year and its not an easy job. There's a lot of things I focus on not only in real life but on here also. I have to make sure I update my blog, edit every post and make sure I don't make a spelling error (if you see my type on the game, you will know its hard work for me to do that LOL), blog about important news, and most of all host contests.. During Contests I have to think of a contest idea I haven't really done before, make the post, edit, answer any questions, remind everyone if the contest is ending soon, send out codes to all of the winners and then announce the winners. I love all of the contests I have, but when someone says I am or even another fansite owner is doing the wrong thing it upsets me. They have done a lot of work to do their contests also, you should just be happy you have a chance at a great code and accept the code if you win and if you don't win congratulate those who do. If you win don't complain about the type of code you win, accept and thank the person who gave you the code that you won. Another thing, fansite owners that have their fansite as more than one fansite are great. They do a lot more work than I am doing and that's actually crazy to me but I think its incredible. They are great people and deserve respect. I'm happy we have such great people who can be nice to others and run fansites, blogs, youtube, graphic artists or even just play the game. If you're rude you don't seem like someone who likes the community well and might need a break. I'm not sending you away, but its an idea that you should keep. If you bash everyone for everything they do that doesn't show you're a very happy person, only upset about something and nobody knows why.. These are things I only do, this doesn't just count for official fansite owners, so many other bloggers have to do the same thing and its hard work but should be appreciated. I can't speak for every blogger but I'm sure most of you reading will agree its hard work. For me its not only hard work, its fun! I love blogging, its one of my favorite things to do and even when I don't have time to do it I always try. I have been blogging for over four years and I'm not someone who only cares about something I get from KI just because I'm official. This is something I love doing and when someone bashes it, it's really upsetting. I'm not going to let anyone that bashes something I love to do win. If they don't like it, it doesn't mean I shouldn't like it. There's so many talented people in the world and some don't know their talents yet, but that doesn't mean you're not important. I believe everyone reading and not reading this post is important and doesn't deserve someone telling them what they are doing is wrong.. Unless its really wrong/bad. I am really bugged at the idea that someone thinks they have a right to troll someone just because they're doing something special for the community. I believe everyone is special in the community even rude people if they start acting nice again. There's something else I want to discuss before ending this post so I hope most of y'all made it through most of the post... I've noticed that Twitter has been crazy lately. Mostly because someone doesn't agree with something others do. IF you feel angry just take a break and come back later, it works for me and I always do that before saying anything else. If you're going to say something mean to anyone, you shouldn't say it at all because you have no idea how much damage it could do. I've done things like this in the past and I had to learn from my mistakes and sometimes you won't be forgiven for what you've done but if you are, don't try it again because next time you might not be forgiven. To end this post, I would like to ask you all to thank a blogger or just a wizard/pirate for their contests the next time they have one, or to accept a code you receive. If you think a contest is too hard there's other fansite contests, there's not only one fansite in the entire community so don't bash their contest in front of the entire community. You should be proud of what they are giving away and what time they are taking out to do so. Everyone's doing what they should do, never change who you are for haters/trolls. If you want to be a troll there's always a place in Cyclops Lane or Aquila you can sit at until you're ready to stop. Thank you for reading, and I hope everything gets better in this wonderful community soon. If you're ready to stop, just stop and maybe everyone will forgive you. :)
