Long Time No Post (updated)

Hi everyone. As you can see I haven't posted anything for about 3 weeks. The main reason being is because I've become a brony and joined its community.

I first heard of bronies on Memebase when I kept seeing My Little Pony memes. These started to grow on me, and after I saw another simmer had become one my interest was heightened. I started watching clips of the show (My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic) on YouTube, which lead me to start watching the show itself, which lead me to joining a forum. Everyone at the forum is very nice and not like the brony trolls and attention-whores you see across the Internet. I actually find the show entertaining as I like the characters, the plots, its humor, and its pop culture references. I had no interest in watching it at first, but after watching clips I decided I had to watch it. :-P

I would also like to make it very clear that I am not one of those people whose lives are only ponies. I am only a fan of the new show (I heard that the past series were more "girly" and less appealing to a wider audience) and I don't collect toys, I don't own any themed clothing, and I have never gone to BroNYCon (not that there's anything wrong with those things, they're just not my thing at the moment). I just watch the show, converse with other fans of it online, and I might make OC's (original characters) for roleplaying. That's it. I have many interests besides this The Sims. :-P

Also, you better expect to see me post some stuff about Liam being a brony. I told Liam this, and this was his response:

Liam, don't try to fight it. You are the perfect sim specimen to become a brony. 

I've still been checking Simstopia and other simmers' blogs regularly, just so you know I haven't been totally isolating myself from here. I also noticed that EA has implemented the new MyPages and added the social features of Showtime in the latest patch, which are causing quite a buzz in the Simmerverse. Like everyone's already stated, it does look like a ripoff of Facebook. Lol I checked my MyPage to see what spam I might've gotten, and many of the more recent comments on my newsfeed were in German and Polish. o_O I barely use the official site anymore anyway, so it doesn't really matter to me. Lol

Anyway I do plan to post more again, and like I said some of it will be about Liam's love for MLP. Until then, Happy Simming and have fun with the new MyPages! :-P
