A new page because the other one was getting really very crowded. I also resisted calling this one New New Members Page, for the sake of continuity later on. It hurt not to use that pun.
Welcome to BlogClan! We’re glad you came.
Here, Kat, one of BlogClan’s senior warriors explains how our community works and how to get involved:
Hello! I’m Kat! I’ll be your tour guide for this part of the website. I’ve been on BlogClan for two and a half years! You have no idea how much BlogClan will affect your life when you first get on. BlogClan is an amazing community of young pre-teens and teens. I’ve noticed in my time that a lot of us are those weird kids, you know, reading the “magic fighting cats books” and daydreaming. Here, we comfort and care for each other more than you can ever imagine. When you first get on here, know that we all understand what another’s going through. Feel free to comment about anything you think of and care about. And most of all, enjoy your time here! Below are some introductions from our senior members of BlogClan. Be sure to ask them questions if you have any! 😀
“Sup guys, I’m Dawnfrost, senior warrior. I’ve been on here for about a year and a half, and I’m always popping in and out. I enjoy reading (I’m an avid Percy Jackson/ Heroes of Olympus fan. Just thought I’d say), drama/acting, and history. BlogClan has become one of my favourite places on the net, and I have made some fantastic friends on here. You’ll honestly really love it here.”
“I’m Rainsong, and I’ve been a part of BlogClan for a little over 2 years. It’s been a wonderful experience, and the community is great- friendships and bonds formed over this website have proved to be strong. So many talented artists and writers are here! This is a wonderful place to go for friendship and support. I hope anyone considering joining will enjoy it as much as I have.”
“Hello everyone I’m Amberstorm, and have been a part of BlogClan for a year. BlogClan has been really fun with great people to chat with, different, fun activities, and with our amazing leader, Cakestar, leading the blog is safe. If you want to post your art there is not only a devitart page you can do so, but send in your artwork and it’ll be posted on the blog. If you’re a writer like me then go on over to the Fanfiction page and posts your works there. The blog has many fun things to do, friendships to forage, and ideas to be drawn or written.”
“My name is Jayfrost, I’ve been on this site for almost three years, and I’m in charge of the Allegiances, so talk to me if you have any questions regarding that. Otherwise, I’m a nerd who enjoys SuperWhoLock, Night Vale, Firefly, Tumblr, deviantArt, writing fanfic, and other nerdy endeavors.”
“Hi there! I’m Swifty. I’ve been around on BlogClan since 10 March 2014, and I’m very interested/obsessed with the following things: Bastille, Doctor Who, Sherlock, Merlin, Torchwood, Welcome To Night Vale, 5SOS, Les Mis, The Beatles, My Little Pony:Friendship Is Magic, Phantom Of The Opera, Queen, One Direction, Dan/Phil, VlogBrothers, Warriors(OBVIOUSLY), music from the 1980s, Ed Sheeran, Fall Out Boy, Panic! At The Disco, Percy Jackson(PJO/HOO), John Green books, Hank Green music, and The Lion King. Many fandoms. Nice to meet you dftba bye”
“Hi guys, I’m Copperclaw, the deputy. I’ve been here for almost three years, and loved every minute. So, in general, I pretty much like reading, drawing, and really nice pens. I hope you guys all have a great time on here!”
“Hi, I’m Cinnamonswirl, commonly known as Cinny or Cinn. I’ve been here for over three years and I’ve seen the blog change over the years, as with its members. If you’re a new member and decide to stay with us (and I encourage it full-heartedly), then hopefully it’s something you’ll notice as well. I’m fourteen years old and a freshman in highschool at the moment and in love with Patrick Stump and the band Fall Out Boy. I like to write, mostly dark romances (strangely, I’m really good at that xD) and read. I cannot say I regret joining BlogClan; it has helped me mature and I’ve made amazing Internet friends that I wouldn’t give up for the world. I hope everyone reading this chooses to stay with us for a while. You won’t regret it.”
“Hey-lo there! I am Dashy, and I’m a YouTube addict. And a gaming addict. And a reading, writing, mushing, hiking addict. I need rehab… Any-who! I’ve been part of Blogclan for… Two and a half years now? Wow. We are a bit crazy sometimes but are some cool cats! Stay and see what we’re all about! 🙂 “
The Blog can be a tough place to navigate. We have a lot of pages (and secret pages!) that you will soon master.
Love to write or read Fan Fiction? (http://erinhunter.katecary.co.uk/fan-fiction-8/) Head over to the Fan Fiction Page—a happy, bright area of camp where members exchange their lovely stories! If you do not get a reply about your fan fiction from others immediately, never be alarmed. You’ll be surprised how many times members read fan fiction but don’t reply to it. 😉 If you don’t have the time to write a Fan Fiction but have an idea, I recommend you go over to the Fan Fiction Organization Page (http://erinhunter.katecary.co.uk/fan-fiction-organisation-2/) and rally a team of writers or plot advisors to help out!
There is also the BlogClan Fan Fiction Project: Trailing Stars. I’m afraid all of the chapters are taken, but if you comment a lot and stay involved with BlogClan, you may be able to write a chapter if a writer is not present. (Try not to ask for a chapter a lot. We’ll let you know if there’s an opening).
Have a lot of warrior names that you came up with? (http://erinhunter.katecary.co.uk/warrior-names-5/) In the cool, reserved area of camp that is the Warrior Names page, you can tell members about the lovely names that you came up with and other members rate them. It’s also very fun to make your own name generator—pair letters to prefixes and suffixes and have members match up their name!
Being a kid in the world today takes everything you got. Taking a break from all of your worries would sure help a lot! Wouldn’t you like to get away? Sometimes you want to go where everybody knows your name! And they’re always glad you came! (http://erinhunter.katecary.co.uk/blogclan-tavern-9/) Head over to the BlogClan Tavern if you’d just like to talk and share stories. The Tavern is a jolly place that is sort of like the fresh-kill pile. Talk about life, share stories, and have fun.
If you’re feeling down, I recommend you go to my favorite place on the Blog: The Hug Page (http://erinhunter.katecary.co.uk/the-hug-page-4/) The Hug Page is where members come to be hugged and comforted. A lot of us are victims of bullying sometimes, and really troubles are hard to get past without friends. We’re all friends here, and we’re all willing to give advice and comfort.
We found a few months ago that a lot of members are a big fan of Doctor Who. Sound like you? Talk, debate, and share feelings with other Doctor Who fans over on the Doctor Who Discussion Page! (http://erinhunter.katecary.co.uk/doctor-who-discussion-page/)
There are a lot of other pages and secret camps set around here, but those are for you to explore! Take a chance, roam BlogClan territory, notify a warrior if you find the occasional badger. (This was meant jokingly. To be assured, no unwanted badger will make an appearance on your computer screen). We’re really glad that you came. You’re going to love it here. BlogClan is full of friendly, sympathetic, amazing people and I think you’re going to find how attached you can get to these people the longer you stay.
May BlogClan light your path!
