In blog drama almost too far out there to be believed, yes you read the title correctly.
Anna of Too Many Annas posted a post defending RP – and calling someone to task for advocating griefing RPers.
I will point to Matojo’s post about why it’s important to have a thick skin as a blogger. You’re putting yourself out there and people are reading you… sometimes they’re going to disagree and sometimes they may even take it personal. And while it does hurt, maybe we need to listen to Gevlon and remember that these are in fact words on a screen. Which is advice I NEED to take more often myself.
Why is this relevant to me? I have an alt in the blogging guild mentioned throughout this debacle. I guess we couldn’t expect the blogging community of readers and bloggers to come together without a stitch of drama… We all like to write too much 😛 Hence why the gchat has been hopping every time I’ve popped over for a few minutes. I’m also a resident of an RP realm on my main server and while I’m not active in RPing, I do have backstories thought out for some of my characters. These reasons are why you’re seeing this posted here. But I think we all need to chill out 🙂
ETA: Tamarind of Righteous Orbs summarizes this quite eloquently.
