because she says it way better than I ever could. This is how I've been feeling forever, and I bet other people have too."Have you felt low on encouragement? Like your stories, art, and icons aren't being noticed by anyone? Has the fandom seemed to have come to a crawl?
You aren't alone.
For many of the familiar faces for LJ DC, the lack of responses and comments on work has caused a general apathy about posting. There are thankfully new fans surfacing every day, but without proper encouragement, they aren't likely to stick around.
So, I decided to do my part -
For everyone who sees this and feels they've been ignored lately or really needs an extra dose in the happiness gauge, comment here. I will review at least three articles of art, fanfiction, or other fandom related goodies. And I mean real reviews. As nice as 'Great Job!' is, I know the reviews that sit down and tell me what really made the difference are the ones that rev my engine.
All I ask is that you all pass it on. Feel free to copy and paste, to change the number of reviews to something you can manage, or just spend one day reading and reviewing the front page of Batfic or any other community.
There is so much love in this fandom. We just have to remember to share it."
