Fall of an empire
About not too long ago, many blogs flourished with news, updates, avid readers, and avid writers putting together stories, gossip, and endless rants (such as this one) for the Stardoll audience to see. Words such as Dollywood, Hacker, Scammer, and many others, were overused to infinite and you couldn't hover over a Stardoll blog without seeing one pop up.
Blogs all around the world from America to Saudi Arabia to Poland to Russia would regularly update out of enjoyment. Stardoll blogging became a second world, an inspiration, and a haven for new faces. It allowed everyone to simply know the facts. People were discovered, graphic artists, designers, and "elites" (a dead term now).
If it wasn't for Stardoll blogging I would've left a long time ago. When I first joined Stardoll, I only had 1 friend and the closest thing to a conversation I ever had was "5/5!!" & "thnx u 2". I didn't find much enjoyment other than purchasing clothing and dressing up my doll. Entering chat rooms wasn't pleasurable either because everyone was just getting down and dirty. Who knew a bunch of pixelated abs could get a 12 year old girl excited in the pants? Sadly, even I didn't get a ''Ur hot'' or a ''bby get nekked 4 me".
Now I sound Taylor swift but blogging was a getaway for us, it allowed us to write about what we loved. Gave us a reason to continue on, and liberated our opinions. It was a universal empire!
Blogs begun deteriorating. It started collapsing like an old building. One by one, people disappeared. Less and less, like losing weight. Our roofs shifted and people fled along with their interest. Blogging lost its spark and some of us, lost our motivation.
Call me crazy, but I feel as if the posts that seemed to make Stardoll (a 12 year old's dressup site) into something more are now less valued. Friendships were harnessed, enemies were caught on..as well as a lot of history.
Do you feel this way to? Is your passion becoming bleak? Maybe one day, one day; we will see a glimmer of light like we once did, the first time I saw these blogs.
