New format!
As you can see, I spent a while on this blog to make it more unique to most blogs on PMC. Instead of just typing regular text, I used PicMonkey and typed up all of this on a transparent background. Not only does it look WAY cooler now, hopefully it should be much more easier to read. I plan to be using this new format for every blog I write here on out. I'd love to experiment with more things in the future.

Also, the thumbnail picture was created to accurately reflect how I was feeling and what was to be discussed. Not to brag or anything, but I think it turned out absolutely amazing. :P For those of you who don't know, I use a combination of Pixlr Editor, PicMonkey, and Blender to make my renders and thumbnails. Perhaps one day I'll make a tutorial on renders or thumbnails and stuff like that. We'll just have to wait and see.

Please let me know in the comments what you think about this new style. Do you like it? Do you dislike it? Should I try something else? Should I change something? Thank you very much for reading, again. See ya!

Well, yeah, This may be an Old as Heck Blog, but consider this...

When I first started off, I never cared to become famous, all I wanted to do was express my creativity to the world, even if I wasn't noticed. Eventually, the blog that became intensely popular was my Magikarp Theory one. It was so generally new and endearing that people swarmed to it. I don't think of people as little robots gathering around you just for fame points, but for the fact that they have feelings and a personality. I never cared for the Subscriber Count, nor the amount of diamonds on a post either. Those mean absolutely nothing to me. Level Count and seeing if my blog gets on the Pop Reel, sure, but I just wait and see all the wonderful comments from all the wonderful people, and seeing their suggestions and critiques (and even praise) flourish in a little tiny community. I rarely use chat as a means of getting popular, as that's just silly business. How did I get to who I was today? Well, It was more of the lines of a Coincidence, but it was the people that kept me going, not those dumb Diamonds and crap. Yes I do keep goals, but they aren't really needed for me to be famous. All you wonderful people made me the person I am today on PMC, and if you still read this, I'll be awaiting your response! :D

The caves thing is called 'Plato's Allegory of The Cave' if you wanted the actual name. It's a good philosophy read should you ever look further into it.
Thanks.

i guess im one of those attention seeking people ur talking about lmao. I have had NO intention of gaining popularity from my "leaving" skin. I am indeed done with pmc, but that doesnt mean i cant come on and check up on my subs who have been with me since day 1. i posted some skins after my leaving skin cause i wanted to communicate with my subs, and each description of the skins states that "this is not my comeback skin" or something along those lines. I really hate giving them false hope, but i just cant stand not being able to see their comments and communicating with them through PMs. Now the logical solution to my problem is to just come back, but i really cant. Skinning has engulfed my life for too long and my grades in high school plummeted from that carelessness, so i needed to leave. Skinning is also very hard for someone like me. i have no special skill with it, nor are my skins as cool and creative as i always wanted them to be.

I would NEVER be so self centered as to only be on here for popularity, and i bet a lot of people that u mentioned without saying their names had a situation similar to mine. My subscribers are some of the most sweetest people ive ever known. i get PMs from them all the time with such kind words and it just makes my heart melt. I just cannot imagine someone being SO HEARTLESS as to completely disregard the people that literally make them relevant and give them so much love.

But then again, thats just my thoughts. sorry if i sounded rude, i really dont mean it that way. i sometimes come off as rude even when i dont mean to be that way. But seriously, ur blog posts are AMAZING. like, i couldnt imagine having to think of topics to cover constantly ;-; kudos to u for being so dedicated <3
I can't remember if I ever saw yours or not.

Like I said with PureNerd, I would suggest to never make a skin about it and instead PM your friends and leave a note on your profile. I understand you're having issues in real life, but it's not fair to make people feel upset, pour their love and support, only for you to come back.

Don't give up on skinning. You can always improve.

I appreciate that. Thank you. <3

yeah, i do regret making that skin... i really do. it was a bad choice of words and i do apologize for that. i feel that since i did make a skin, i should have named it "Taking A Break" instead of "quitting". i feel there's more leniency with the first one and i would have been able to come back and check in once in a while. But overall, i wish i didnt make that skin at all.

Every time i did post, i felt so bad cause i knew every time i posted it was like i never even left, which probably made some people really pissed or confused cause they poured their hearts out in the comments of my quitting skin.

And theres another thing. People that i didnt even KNOW commented on my skin and said how much they would miss me, and seeing that did confuse me a bit cause its not like they ever commented before or even send me a PM. Not that i didnt appreciate the love, because trust me i loved having so much support, but i mean, it was a little weird seeing people who never communicated with me before being so loving towards me and wishing me good luck. I am in no way saying that in a negative tone, but i think anyone would find that a bit weird xD

Anyway, the day i made that "quitting" skin, it was like 4am and i was super emotional, that's why the description is really sentimental and sorta blown out of proportion. i get like that when its super late at night xD

im thinking of deleting that skin and just making an update skin where i just explain everything as i am here (just a little more light hearted xD)
yes, I will stay salty

Great blog with really great points, but a couple years ago I made a, "I'm leaving" skin because I was moving across the country and I didn't know when I'd be back, or if I'd have the motivation of coming, which I expressed in the description, but I didn't tell them about the move. I did it because I wanted to let all my friends on here know why I was going to be inactive. When I came back a month later, I got hate, even from some really popular skinners, saying I had promise but they weren't gonna subscribe to me because of the "stunt" I pulled. Not everyone who makes those skins do it for attention, some--I'm not saying all--actually have a reason for doing it.
Thanks man! Sorry I forgot to respond to this.

I will say you shouldn't have made a skin about it and instead PMed all your friends and left a note on your profile, but that's just my personal opinion. I do agree, though, that those skinners shouldn't have said those things to you.

Thanks for being awesome.

Make the font a bit smaller and this is a perfect blog imo. You're a great writer and did a great job at getting your point across. I applaud you (^:

Is it sad that I can't remember? I started writing a blog, and kinda woke up from being really lethargic, and now totally have a different mindset.

Anyway PS you finally get to see my article writing skills!

Love the font, spent the last like 15-25 minutes reading through this and trying to comprehend it.
I agree with what you wrote though, I've seen this at least twice.
Your blogs are so deep though, and diamond and favorite for you :p
Thank you, glad you agree. <3

Font's a bit big, needs to be split up better.

Not really sure how to respond to the rest of the blog, as I don't know how I feel about it. 

It's well written, though, I'll give you that.
I based it off of Chips, haha. :P But maybe I will, especially for interviews. I just knew it was hard to see the font regularly.

Thanks! ๏ปฟAfter a week.
..that cave story is quite nice, i really like this blog
๏ปฟalso the font is great c:

Very well written! I haven't really experienced what you're talking about since I'm fairly new, but you summed up the whole issue very well. I was a little bothered by the "most people don't want to help you" when you're older statement though. I'm not sure if you're in high school or in college; I'm currently 17 and in my junior year, and I don't feel like you can say "most people" will not want to help you. People don't get heartless as they age, and a major portion of people on this site will not be getting into politics. Sure, life gets busier, placing more demand on individuals, but that doesn't mean they only think about themselves. The younger age group you describe is more likely to do this. Strangers won't always go out of their way to help you, but friends during your older years in life will commonly be there for you. Anyways, sorry for the nitpicking. +1 Diamond :)
It depends if people do get heartless or not. Sometimes they do, sometimes they don't. But most of your life you're going to be competing with other people - for jobs or recognition. Thanks so much though.

Tbh. I'm happy with my subcriber count.

In the past, my motivation and goals were set SO low, I only wanted 10 subcribers then leave the site.

But I'm fond of skinning and the friends I've made :o

Plus, who else in this site has the title on an app with their favourite colour CLEARLY stating "Featured Artist" :o

๏ปฟi mean troy also has one too but he hasn't been on lately //cri
I'm glad you surpassed your goals, haha!

It's true, skinners are juet a bunch of people who like to overshade things, give them dramatic names, and get on the popreel.
Eh, not all of 'em, especially when just speaking about skinners in general.

Can you like never use this picture thing again? It took me 3 attempts to load this page on my phone using my slowed data. Each attempt took 30 minutes, and eventually it would just time out.
Get a new phone mate. I'd suggest an Iphone 6S+.
