Yup, that's me to a T. I've read a lot growing up. Everything that had to do with Vampires/Witches, Celtic magic -- everything supernaturals.
They were all dark and considered themselves monsters -- I couldn't find the right one where they were happy to be themselves -- guess what? I wrote it LOL!
Keep busy, always, read, write, fix, proofread -- you know, lather, rinse, repeat ...
Yours in blood,
p.s. I talk of my stories, of course!
We're all online these days... However, the Balance of things is very unequal...
If you communicate about what you do online, you have to return the favour, simple really...
Example, you want us to VIEW, LIKE, SUBSCRIBE and COMMENT/FEEDBACK. Fine, no problem, we do that on a regular basis as well as WATCHING YOUR ADS in order for you to get AD REVENUE.
Now, think about it? For the shortest time possible if you are busy LOL! Some of us, your viewers, do all you ask for. We view, we like, we subscribe (and press the notification bell so we don't miss when you release a new post and/or video.
Therefore, the Balance is that if we are a fellow author, video-maker or poster, and we politely let you know, as you already read your comments, it would be only good manners and good balance and good practices for you to return the favour as in making the Balance level aka equal. Simply, return the favour, view our work, click like where needed, some of us don't have AD REVENUE, so, it'll be nice to watch without them LOL!
At the end of the day, we want the same that you want. However, you give us the lamest excuse that you're only one person and you can't do all. Unfortunately as far as manners goes it shows the negative side you have -- you just want to get, get, get and give nothing in return. Just another video of what you had to eat during the day? Really?
Everything in life requires a give and a take known simply as BALANCE...
If you do this, then you'll have a good reputation but in the end if all you do is take, take, take and do not help out your fellow users, who are just trying to be known and make their own living in their own way, many will walk away.
Finally, it's not bad criticising, it's just good business sense. Think about, bring back harmony and balance in your lives and everything in the world will be much better.
Thanks and have a good day!
Yours in blood, CeDany, BB, V-V!
