Since Tumblr has decided to change its content policies, a lot of Simmers are migrating from there to other sites, and I intend to leave it as well. New sites scare me, so I'll be posting exclusively here (and on PBK and GoS, but here's where my gameplay posts live) from now on - not that I will be doing that for the foreseeable future.
Why? Well. Anyone remember this post I made a few years back, or this one from a while before that? The things I mentioned in those are still issues now. I don't feel like I enjoy blogging enough to keep doing it. I hate having to pause the game to take pictures. My low self-esteem means I post mainly for the ego boost of getting comments. And I feel constrained in my gameplay by what "everyone else" might think is "acceptable" - in other words, the standards of modern life that my game is all about reversing if I can or else stomping on as hard as possible.
So I need time away from the community. I need to step back and enjoy playing for its own sake, and to experiment outside the 21st century's comfort zone. I'm still open to contact from all the good friends I've made over the years - I'd just rather do it privately, through whatever means might be available (I'm not that good with social media) and if anyone has any suggestions, I'm all ears.
Anyway... bye for now. I'm so sorry it's come to this. *hug*
