Keep the Motivation Going?

Posted July 3rd, 2013 at 4:34 PM by Squidchan

So I've been thinking of ways to entice myself into sticking around here and I've come up with a few ideas. I would like to say that I haven't been around because I've been really busy, but it's actually been a number of reasons all mixed into one. First of all, I blame my daughter. Oh yes, her again. I swear she is one of the most difficult babies I've ever met. Don't get me wrong, I love her to bits, more than anything in the world... but it's been 9 months and I haven't had a single day to myself, to sit and do what I want when I want. It would be great if she would stick to a routine but she doesn't. Enough about that though. Secondly, I get bored really easy. In fact, I've gotten bored writing this, so I'll get to the point.

I have a few ideas to keep me going here. One is to join an RP, however, every time I go have a look around in there, I'm very intimidated by all the rules and etiquette, and I'm not sure which one to join. My second idea is to start up a trade shop, considering I was going to offer breeding and training services anyway, I might as well do it here. I was going to try and make some money out of it, but I think I could do it for trades instead. Lastly, I was thinking about writing down all my story (fanfiction and original fiction) ideas and excerpts, but I think I could do that anywhere, and it's never helped before. Any ideas? All help would be awesome!

Well, that's Diana crying now :( I love her, I really do! Thanks in advance! <3

    Babies can be like that! Has she started crawling or walking around yet? Must be a handful!!

    Maybe you can PM or VM the creator of the RP to help you get started? :3

Please like, comment and subscribe if you like my content to support me. Thanks you!! ~(^w^)~

    I can see where your intimidation comes from. After I joined the RP craze (retired now), it felt pretty easy, but it was also addictive too. Beforehand, I felt extremely intimidated. Like...there were rules for the RP in general, rules to create characters, and rules for each roleplay. Every roleplay is different.

    But there's no need to stay back because of intimidation. There's this thing inside of you called "guts" and you gotta have them when you join a roleplay. :P Start off with an easy roleplay. I always recommend a certain roleplay to anyone who's a new roleplay member, or a new roleplayer who wants to get acquainted with the RP forum in general. Check out The Pokemon Trainer Academy. It's a newbie-friendly roleplay, where anyone can totally help you out. Heck, when I joined, after two posts I already made a few interactions there. xD And don't be afraid of your writing either. As long as you have okay grammar and capitalize correctly, you're good. :P (I think the required length of a roleplay post is 4 lines...not too sure).

    The choice is yours though! Best of luck <3

    Thanks Kura. My little DJ has just started taking steps on her own. She can only manage 4 or 5 before falling, but she's getting there!

    And thank you Meganium, I'll definitely have a look at that RP once I get in my computer. It's 5:30 am right now so it'll have to wait. I'm actually pretty excited now :)
