I have a couple orders of beez-nees today I'd like to talk about, so I'm gonna try and cover them as quickly as possible so I don't bore you with too much non-story stuff:
Now, I am gonna say--pageviews and followers, as numbers, don't mean a whole lot to me. Until blogger put them directly on the dashboard, I didn't even really pay much attention how few or many I was getting. I write this story because of how it makes ME feel, because I LOVE to write... anyone who decides to join me along the way is just a really big, awesome bonus that serves to keep me motivated when life tries to tell me I shouldn't waste my time writing anymore.
But, I really am humbled by the support you guys have given me. Seriously. I know there will always be bloggers and writers who get more numbers, but it really matters so little to me because I treasure what I have, not what others do that I don't. And I really do treasure you guys. A lot.
I'd like to come up with a way to really thank you guys in a more meaningful way, but I got nothin'. For now, at least. I just feel like, after reaching both a milestone in followers and pageviews, I should at least say something. I want to be grateful for what I have, always--and you guys are so awesome!! So, if you have any ideas for things you'd like me to do--shoot em at me!
he main reason it's been happening? I've just been feeling really 'meh' lately about the Sims. I got frustrated with the lag in my game, and then just frustrated with the Kanes.
No, I'm not bored with the Kanes--in fact, I feel the exact *opposite* towards them. The problem is that I've had Margo's entire life mapped out in my head for over 6 months now--and I've been so excited about what'll happen later in her life that getting through this section feels a little tedious, as important as I know it is. Amelia knows exactly what I'm talkin' about--she's so excited about getting to the next part of her story that the finale to this one is acting like one big giant roadblock. (So let's all cheer Amelia on because we know her finale will be FANTASTIC.)
Anyways, I finally decided on a solution: I started a new story.
Also, the premise behind 'Dipped' has also been floating around in my head for forever, and was even supposed to be part of Desperate Sims at some point--but I decided 'what the heck' and not only split it into a separate story, but a separate universe!
And, don't worry--if you don't want to read Dipped, you don't have to! I don't expect anyone who reads this story to read everything I write; it'll be cool if you do, but I know Berry Sweet sims aren't some peoples thing. (They definitely weren't mine, a year ago!) Yes, it will keep updates on DS slow for the time being, but consider that a good thing.
Anyways--thank you guys again for everything. And, if you do decide to check Dipped out, I hope you enjoy!! I'm really psyched to be trying something new--it's just the pick me up I need.
