So now, I hand the floor over to our candidates and to you, BlogClan!
Calm, positive, welcoming
Ever since I joined BlogClan, I thought, “Wow, I really love this place. I want to help out any way I can.” And I still want to help. I love this community so much, it’s become a second home to me. I love each and every member – everyone is so unique and kind and wonderful, and I think being BlogClan’s medicine cat – while not only being an honour – would enable me to help BlogClan further as it grows and changes and evolves. I’m so incredibly grateful for BlogClan and its members, and I don’t know where I would be without them. The chance to apply for this position is amazing on its own, and I’m very glad to have this opportunity. I was hesitant to even apply, but I’m nothing if not willing to try new things, and this is definitely new for me. But BlogClan is so kind and wonderful, so I’ve no reason to be scared. 🙂 I will continue to help BlogClan in any and all ways possible, medicine cat or not. I want to continue serving this community to the best of my abilities for as long as I can, and that’s one thing about me that will never change. 🙂
Supportive, compassionate, intelligent
Hey everyone <3 I’m Flowerstream and I’ve decided to run for medicine cat this year. I’m going to keep this short and sweet so just read on! I joined BlogClan about 4 and a half years ago, and it’s been amazing. I’ve loved to get to know all of you, and I’ve loved spending hours of my day here. I’ve made the greatest friends and I have tons of good memories. Being elected medicine cat would be such an honour, and I’m freaking out and just psyched to be able to run at all, and I promise that I’ll continue to be active, welcoming new members, and posting on the Hug Page regardless of whether I’m elected or not. I’m somewhat responsible, and I’m always here for support. (Always. Come to me anytime <3 ). I’m a member of BlogTeam, moderator of livechat and comments, and I founded our very own BlogClan 2 Wikia (RIP original BlogClan Wiki). I’m a fairly active member and I just want to know I love each and everyone of you and I hope the election is fun for all of you. Anyways, I’m going to end this speech with one message: Go with the Flo 😉 (kudos to josh for the slogan)
Kind, funny, goofy
I have been a member of the blog for 2 years and it has been great, I have met so many amazing people in the blog all of whom would make a great medicine cat. I belive I would be a good person for this postion as I am an active member, when I can be that is, with school and everything. I welcome new members with open arms and treat everyone equally. As a part of the LGBTQ+ community I understand and respect those appart of it also. I try to be active on most pages and try not to leave anyone out. Although due to my Timezone I’m not usually able to make it too the live chat it try to get on whenever I have the chance.
Energetic, kind, different
What I know about BlogClan is enough for me to want to help people find a place they can be happy, a place they can meet people with the same interest. I want to help with that. I know what it is to be lost, I know what it is to not have the ability to find someone with the same interests. I’ve been in situations where people have been put down for what they love. I want people to feel welcome here. I might not be material for a “medicine cat” in the traditional sense, but I am always willing to help people when they’re down, help the new kids. I’ve been there, I know what it’s like. Too many times have I been the new guy left to figure things out for himself. It’s hard. So I’m here to try to help with people’s new entrance. Even though I’ve had hiatuses, that’s due to school, because I do focus. In my free time, I’m ready to help at any time. I know that I’m not incredibly well-known, not anymore. But I intend to show that I’ve always been ready to help anyone who asks. “Through vigilance and strength, we create peace.”
