Welcome back, BlogClanners! Today is the third day of the Medicine Cat hustings! If you still want to apply, you can do so here. Applications close today at 23:59 UTC (click here to convert to your local time)!
Just an announcement for those who didn’t see—we will now have three finalists for each position that move on to the second round, rather than four!
Now, as day three rolls around, we’ve already heard from some amazing candidates! It’s time to hear from some more!
Today answering your questions are Rosesong and Frostfire! Please be accepting and give your best questions to our candidates! 😉
Candidates may use the comments below as a space to put their campaign, and the amazing members of BlogClan can use the comments as a space to ask questions, such as: why do you want this position? What are some good qualities you have? What are your flaws?
If you are still confused on hustings, they were explained fully in the first 2019 Elections post by Winterwhisper. You can find that here!
I’ll now hand it over to our candidates! Good luck to all!
Mediator, welcoming, friendly
I want to become more integrated into this community, and this seems to be a good position that compliments my personality well.
Loyal, empathetic, caring
Everyone has a place they call home. And for many, including me, that home is BlogClan. Real life is great, and I have amazing, kind friends, but nothing can compare to the welcoming, loving, amazing, all-around awesome community on the blog. I remember the day I joined – it was a day I wouldn’t take back for anything. I felt so welcomed, accepted, and understood when I joined – and I want new members to always feel like I did. I want to be as sweet and loving as my dear BlogClan friends are to me. I have no other words to finish this post, as I can’t express how grateful I am, or how much BlogClan has changed my life. But here are a few – when I joined, I was a socially awkward kid (which I still mostly am), but now, I’m not as shy. And the reason for that wasn’t a therapist, or a friend, or anything else. No. It was this site. Not only has it done that, but it’s made me happier. Now, I have an outlet where I can share my obsessions and talk about things no one else understands. I have my weird, happy, fun, amazing corner of the Internet. People irl don’t usually understand how a bunch of “random online people you don’t know” can do that or how “your real life friends mean more to you.” But I’ve been closer to all of you then I’ve ever been to most rl people. The part of the blog that makes it like this, that makes it different from everything else, the part that no one can understand irl, is something you can rarely, if at all, find anywhere else. Kindness. Openness. Unconditional support. Heartwarmingness. The fact that first impressions aren’t necessarily everything. The fact that we don’t judge. That’s what sets us apart – and binds us together. Without the blog, we’d have few to none people to get hyped about the release of new books or share our fanfics with. And this is why I want to be medicine cat – I want to keep this bond alive, bring more people together through the blog and touch their lives. I want to do as much as I can, and give back as much as I can, for BlogClan. I want this to be the place not just we can call home – but the place so many more can. And I promise, that if I’m medicine cat, I will make sure this happens. I’ll continue the blog we have today. <3
See you guys later for the Deputy hustings! And remember, applications close today at 23:59 UTC.
