I AM AMBIVALENT ABOUT...

  1. ...@list going public.
    Am I the only one??
  2. I haven't been a part of this community for very long, but what I have seen & experienced is like nothing that exists on social media.
    It's truly a community. There is nothing but support and encouragement on here. Nobody spamming or writing mean comments. Shaming anyone for their body or opinions. Connecting in a real way with (mostly) strangers. It's rare and pretty beautiful.
  3. I'm scared how things will change.
    A lot of people suck, you guys. A LOT of people. I don't want to see mean comments or "fansies" stalking the celebrities. I don't want the existing members to clam up because exponentially more people are reading.
  4. But then, am I just being selfish?
    Sure, I'd be lying if I didn't say it makes me feel really cool to be a part of the beta stage. To get to connect and share in a free, open space that most people don't even know about. I'm a cool kid! In a non-douchey way! Is that partially why I don't want to share?? Cause then it won't be special anymore?
  5. ListApp is a gift.
    Which sounds trite, but I really think it is. I should want more people to experience it! I should be excited that the group and the ideas will expand! Think of the possibilities!
  6. And of course, I'm happy for the creators.
    It's exciting that something they built has gotten so much positive feedback that it can find and hold a larger audience.
  7. I guess what I'm saying is, I don't want to read Kim Kardashian's lists.
    Or maybe I do....?
