"We need this Pack" Searching for community.

I am enjoying this season of TrueBlood so much that I'm going to use it as a tool to discuss a topic that's been on my mind as of late. That topic being, community. Now if you're paying attention to the "sub par b-plots" this season you will know that the best of the lot is about Alcide, and Debbie joining the wolf pack who's territory they accidentally moved into (this plot is also bleeding into the Sam Merlot/Luna plot and is becoming quite interesting). Debbie tells Alcide that she requires community to keep her sane, she's literally begging for Alcide to help fulfill this need. It's good for her and it will be good for them. It's Debbies overwhelming need to be accepted into a community that is the core of my thoughts.

I felt for a long time that I could do this all by myself. By "this" I mean create media, find an audience build an empire, and grow into the entity I aspire to be. I knew then as I know now that this while very possible is not the way to go. I need community, and I am sure someone out there feels the same way that I do. I have experience content from both sides of the spectrum. I was once a nameless YouTuber who digested content, enjoyed it and kept moving (No interaction). Now I create content, that's hardly ever seen by the community (Again minimal interaction). In both situations I felt as if something was wrong, and I required more from the situation to be happy.

It almost makes me feel a bit daft, because YouTube is a community to begin with, so why am I so alone? Answer is I'm not alone, and speaking with my good friend Fragm3nt3d today reminded me that I awkwardly have found a small community of creatives to work with, to laugh with, and to be the support that I desperately need in my darkest hours.

I acknowledge this modern conundrum, how can one be alone in a crowded room? We have so many social media outlets so many different ways to share you almost have to want to be alone. Problem is we have become increasingly more self involved. We log on we post about ourselves we log off. We respond to people who talk to us first. People don't take the time to listen or meet anyone new because they all just want to "share". We have become socially self absorbed. You become invisible in a crowded room when everyone looks into a mirror.

My advice, and the point of this post is to just let everyone know that "everybody needs somebody sometimes" It's impossible to be alone on the internet. Reach out, and find someone, talk to someone. Take a general interest in another, and build a community. At the end of the day, the point of the web is to connect us all.

I'll leave you with a bit of content.



Cheers and Social Animal Teddy Bears!
