Loyal, Patient, Dedicated
I have been on the blog for nearly two years now. Members have come and gone and so much has changed but the kindness of people here never ceases to amaze me! The community spirit in the blog is definitely why I’ve been here for this long- you can do so much! Play games, show off your art or writing, ask questions or just hang out. As soon as I heard about the elections I wanted to run because, now, I can finally give something back! I’ve always wanted to have a part in the blog’s future- and now’s my chance! You’re all amazing people and I’d be really honoured if even just one of you voted for me to become your deputy.”
Logical, Open-minded, Sensible
When I joined Blogclan five years ago, I was afraid of accidentally doing something wrong on the blog, but when greeted by the friendly and welcoming replies explaining the few guidelines of Blogclan and what to do whilst on the site, my anxiety and hesitance both calmed down. Since I made that comment, not only has my head been opened to explain my feelings better and understand new ideas and topics, but also my heart so I can resonate with the emotions and experiences of others along with learning to appreciate people for who they are. Blogclan has made me realise the power of community on the internet, as when people bond over a common interest it blooms into friendship and creates a powerful bond, which I have seen happen in Blogclan. I love meeting the different people who come across Blogclan and see them evolve not only as a member of Blogclan, but as a person. This little family of fans and creators gives those the opportunity to make friends and develop their creative skills in art and writing for those who might not otherwise get the chance to this point in their lives, and I think that’s beautiful. I want to help people see how good and helpful Blogclan can be on their journey, and if I become Deputy, I will be their guide to making the most out of the blog. I will try my best to make sure their first experience on Blogclan is as smooth and worthwhile as possible, helping them in any way I can with any problems or questions they might have. I will also use my practical thinking and open mind to listen to those who need help, whether that is seeing both sides to ease any possible conflict or finding the solution to a difficult problem, whatever that may be. I hope to serve as a good role model for the blog because I want to help everyone in any way I can and make sure that everyone’s experience on Blogclan is the best it possibly can be.
