Kind, loyal, dedicated
Hi everyone! The elections are upon us again, and I am so, so excited to be participating. Every single candidate is an AMAZING person, and I‘m honored to run alongside them. I am so proud of our entire site for gathering together in this fun process.
When I joined the Blog, I was incredibly nervous. I spent an insane amount of time quietly shuffling around, commenting sparsely, because I was afraid I’d start talking and somehow mess up. I think we’ve all felt like that sometimes. C:
I was relieved to find out that it was certainly not the case! The Blog has helped me in many ways, the first being helping me come out of my shell. As I’m sure you all know, I am quite the talker nowadays! I want to help others in the same way. We’re a community of friends, and I hope to serve as a friend for all who need one.
My memories of BlogClan are full of laughter and fun. From scrawling through the Tavern late at night to reply to joke threads going dozens of comments deep, to opening BlogChat at 4 am to have sleepy chatting, to just hanging out and having a good time with friends every single day. Beyond that, I can say truly that BlogClanners old and new alike have inspired me, motivated me, and given me experiences that I wouldn’t trade for the world.
I can say without any exaggeration that the Blog has defined me as a person. The friends I’ve made here are some of the best people I know, and I’m so glad to have met them. I found BlogClan during a very dark time in my life. From that day forward, it has shone like a beacon of light for me. It has never failed to bring me joy, love, and the kind, warm atmosphere that I needed. The kind atmosphere that we all need.
I have always strived to help create a sense of warmth and belonging for anyone and everyone on the Blog, and if I have succeeded in that task for even one person, it will have been the best use of my years.
I’ve worked in BlogTeam for years; however, while I could never fully describe the gift that it has been, BlogTeam status doesn’t automatically make someone a good candidate and I understand that. We are all wonderful people with our own unique contributions to the Blog, and I know a great many people who have been a help to me personally just by being there and being kind.
I hope that in the end, I am not simply an Allegiances Tsar, Clanniversary Tsar, and TSGN Tsar to you. I hope that I am your friend, and that I have given all that I can to you. I hope that you are made welcome, that you have a lovely time on the Blog, and that you always, always find the kindness that makes the Blog so remarkable.
I cannot promise perfection, as I would never make you a promise I couldn’t keep. 😉 What I can promise is that as medicine cat, I will continue to do my best. I will always work with dedication toward preserving the kind warmth that drew me in on that first day I visited BlogClan.
Every BlogClanner is valued. Every BlogClanner matters. Every BlogClanner is my priority. Thank you. ❤️
Caring, Responsible, Truthful
I am running for the position of medicine-cat because I feel it would keep me on track and because I love caring and helping the community of BlogClan and many other special places online and in my regular daily life. I feel since I have a good amount of time to spare, I am able to take on the responsibilities this job holds and be the best medicine-cat I can be. I also remember being inspired by the past medicine-cats of BlogClan and would love to be able to move along a few of the many brilliant souls on BlogClan, as well as helping out with BlogTeam. All of the following remarks, and a few more later to be mentioned, are why I am interested in running for the position of medicine-cat on BlogClan.
Intelligent, authentic, loving
Looking back, I realize what an immature, self-deprecating mess I was. People would flock to the older members, and I’d think I wasn’t talented. People would reprimand me for a rude joke, and I’d take it personally. I liken it to flax fiber-flax fiber feels like a hundred tiny pricks against the skin, and there’s a period where you adjust to that. I was flax-fiber, and BlogClan adjusted me to be caring,. The compassion each person I’ve met here has shown, will stay with me forever. Then there’s the precious bonds on BlogClan. Watching new members make a friend, and together with that person, become loved members the Blog can’t do without is a beautiful thing, but it doesn’t happen enough. To use a metaphor, new BlogClanners are pieces of fabric to be sewn, and I want to be the one threading the needle. It’s right down my ally-I’m a welcoming, friendly person who tries to make EVERYONE, even if they don’t have dozens of friends, feel appreciated. Bridging BlogTeam and BlogClan better suits a mod, but I’d be especially good there. My mind is adrift with ideas, so I’m always thinking up new ways to foster a relationship between a Blogclanner and a BlogTeam member. The mods are insanely good at their job, but at heart, they are the funniest, sweetest people, and helping newer Blogclanners understand that would be a joy. To sum it up, I want to give back. BlogClan has brought me so much happiness, and it’s time I returned some of that happiness.
