Important Admin Things

Hi y’all.

Three things.

Thing 1:
I thought I wouldn’t have to close the asbox for a while, but my internet connection is so patchy I can’t answer the same number each day as I usually do. So I’m closing it up for a while.

Thing 2:
I’m working on a way that those who can’t read allcaps can get something out of this blog. I don’t know exactly what I’m going to do, but I have a rough idea, so please be patient while I work it out (and hopefully reliable internet access will help!). I’m also working on something very exciting for 5000 followers. Currently we’re at 4550, so it’ll be soon.

Thing 3:
I run this blog by myself. Just me. I write every affirmation myself, I answer every ask myself. I read every note on every post, so I can check for anyone who is mocking or being unkind to the people who ask me for help. I do all this by myself. For up to 3 or even 5 hours a night, sometimes.

And that’s okay. I want to do it that way. I want to be sure that absolutely everything said on this blog is my own words, so I can be 100% sure it’s a statement I agree with. Maybe one day I’ll want help, but right now, I think it’s better I work alone.

But my friend says I need to be as assertive as I tell all my followers to be. So I’m just going to take this opportunity to point out that I’m doing this in my own time, by myself, and spending as many as 30 hours a week on it, and I do it for free. I want to, that’s all fine.

I’d just appreciate it if y’all could not send me messages pushing me to answer you quickly, or be rude and attack some aspect of what I do. I like suggestions, and I like feedback. Criticism is fine, but please don’t be rude. And I’m not ever going to deviate from my policy of answering every ask in the order I recieve them. It’s the fairest way for everyone.

It’s not many people. Just one every now and again. The majority of you are lovely and polite and sometimes apologetic where you don’t need to be. I just want to remind the impatient and rude people that I will get to you eventually. I’m dealing with my own life and for the most part, I find writing this blog very rewarding, but if you’re annoyed or frustrated, please remember that I’m a real person behind a screen, and an anxious one at that.
