"Popular" Authors Write Trash

and other clickbait titles.

But actually, this is not entirely the clickest of baits because I am going to be talking about that attitude. Because it's an attitude. That exists. And I don't get why? ᇂ_ᇂ

Here on Mibba, everyone is ridiculously chill- and I love it. I think because it's so small, there's no real "popularity" of any kind and I am going to continue to put "popular" in air quotes because we are on a writing website and this is the Internet and none of us are actually popular just because we get some reads and followers.

But still- Mibba is chill. (ノ◕ヮ◕)ノ*:・゚✧

Wattpad- Wattpad is not. (ノಠ益ಠ)ノ彡┻━┻

I've mentioned I write on Wattpad, and yes, I love it. I've built a readership. I made some amazing friends (that I got to meet up with!) and it's home for me now. But seriously, all people do is complain about popular authors/books.

It's always the What's Hot lists are all trash and the Wattys (a site-wide awards for books) is also trash and if you have more than 1 million reads you're probably writing trash and etc etc. And it's not like people are complaining only in their own stories, sometimes they complain to you personally and it's like- bruh. ≖‿≖

And I just remember a couple of my friends won Wattys and were so excited and to immediately get assaulted by a mass of "the wattys suck" like 0.0003 seconds after they're announced is like okay cool, thanks.

I feel like people think that just because you have a certain number of reads you don't see these things or read comments etc but like, we do? We are just regular people behind a computer screen? We are not "popular" we just like to write and we see what you write and it's kind of shitty?

And I'm also writing on here of this because if you complain at all- especially with "hey don't harass me for updates because I do things outside of Wattpad like breathe"- you're immediately branded as ungrateful and how dare you I would love to be harrassed for updates and it's like
(  ゚,_ゝ゚)

Sigh. This was just my rant of the day. I'm happy to get it out. Anyways, how's Mibba? (✪㉨✪)
