Since the first time I found gather through another site called stumbles recommendation, I felt i found my home!
We are a family of sorts. We support one another share each others milestones and give praise and help one another with any form of writing one uses.
I feel like i am at home when i am here. I had been off about a year (not completely just on less) during a hard time in my life. I came back and then the great depression of 2013 happened. I needed my gather fix~!
I feared it was going away and insisted It just couldn't happen ! there were a handful of us beating the odds and sticking by one another like glue! we found ways to be able to comment with one another and that made life lighter and darn it we decided we needed to let Health guru realize we were a big part of gather.
It was like a ghost town with people refusing to leave though it was hard to keep on and stay. We support one another and tried to contact other members asking for them also to come in on our write in (kind of like a sit in but with words) We made new friends and stuck close by even if it took us a bit of time to get on. I my self stayed open almost every waking our and finally one day which happened to be my gather anniversary we got the news from Connie our wishes were to be coming soon.
My only birthday wish was to be able to post and it worked!
With our little write in we beat the odds!
Yes I miss the points and gift cards,yes i miss the ability to post photos .
BUT i would and did miss the comrades we have here at gather our ghost town is getting friends back one by one. I feel the points being off is another little challenge to see if we are willing to stick together through thick and thin,and we are winning the battle.
Hel~ no we wont go!
