I have a confession and an apology to make to you guys (as the title states).
I haven’t been very active on byte or the forums lately, and there’s a reason for that. With the whole situation going on right now, I thought I could try different things, like build audiences on platforms other than byte. I decided to try to shift my priorities and spread them among multiple social media platforms.
Unfortunately, that was my mistake.
Instead of it working, what I got instead was me not having much fun with the other platforms and moving away from byte and its community towards other communities that may not be as inviting or friendly.
After a week of my messed-up life went by, I laid in my bed last night and realized that I was doing everything all wrong. Why should I be trying to build audiences and communities in other places…when I’m already building both on byte? Why should I be avoiding it? This is the most welcoming community I’ve ever come across, and I’m already wanting to leave it?
After examining my motives a bit, I realized that the ultimate problem is that I honestly just want friends. I originally got on byte for my own personal gain, but after being on it for (just about) two months now, I realized that it can’t be all about me. I want to interact with more people. I’m a born introvert who wants to more extroverted, but sometimes I’m too scared to take that next step and reach out to somebody.
So I’ll ask you guys: will you please accept my apology and be willing to accept me back in? I really, REALLY want to collab and meet with more of you guys, so please feel free to DM me on Instagram or Twitter at BITagent89!
TL;DR: please forgive me for being an a$$hole and leaving byte for some other platform. I’m going back to making more byte content, but I also really want to be friends with you guys and make bytes with you!
