Have you been on Booksie for sometime now? Or are you new here? Doesnt matter. I'm sure you will ALL relate to my new article :'Things we have ALL experienced on Booksie'. It contains all the experiences I'm sure you have ALL experienced on this wonderful site. It will only take you 13 minutes to go through so I would really appreciate you going through it! I love you!

12 Things we have ALL done on Booksie.

1- Reading Requests : Of course, its an essential part of Booksie is to know how to advertise your work for other Booksians to read! I've seen so many types of requests all through my three years on Booksie. Everyone tries to make themselves unique so that the reader is interested. Some have even got down to bribing them!(in the nicest possible way if course!) I remember this one user who said that if I read his poem, he would send me a fan request (not depending on wether he likes my work or not). Honestly, I found it unfair on my part so of course, I didnt go with it.

 

2- The soul crushing disappointment you feel when no one responds to your reading requests: "WHY DOES NOBODY LIKE WHAT I WRITE????"

 

3- The AMAZING rush of adrenaline we feel when we get a comment/fan request: "I love Booksie! I'm gonna stay here for the rest of my life! Faith in Humanity restored!" Go double orange boxes!!

 

4- The people who don't reply to your comment on their work and don't read your work either but KEEP sending you reading requests even though you've long since lost your interest in them: LOL, that was long. But we've ALL known them (it may have been ME for some people, lol sorry)

 

5- That annoying feeling you get when someone's profile JUST DOESN'T LOAD: Nor does their comments section so you can send them a comment. So annoying.

 

6- Having EdwardJBradleySr as your first fan and having an INSANELY happy moment reading his comment :Yes, I actually thought he was Mr.Booksie......is he? Idk. Can someone tell me?

 

7- Making a second account and getting EdwardJBradleySr as your fan again and getting the same comment and realising that he sends the same thing to everyone and that you are not unique or anything but feling happy anyway because, hello? FAN REQUEST!!!

 

8- Getting a lot of reading requests and feeling obligated to reply to every single one : Ok, we have ALL experienced this. You dont want to read something but are obligated to read it since the user has been so nice to send it to you in the first place. So you go, skim through the page and leave a nice comment underneath. Sometimes, you just copy another person's comment. ADMIT IT.

 

9- Looking at some of the profiles some users have and wondering if you would EVER manage to have something even vaguely similar to that: Oh my gosh, this happens to me EVERY TIME. How are people so creative???

 

10- Meeting some AMAZING people that you probably will never meet in real life and becoming BFFs with them: I have met so many amazing people in here and I have loved every single one of them. These people are often the most supportive, hyperactive and loving people you will ever meet! If you haven't met your Booksie Bestie yet, I'll be yours! You can never have too many friends!

 

11- Losing your Booksie besties over time due to you or them having to attend to other matters in your/their personal lives: I have lost so many people like this and I would LOVE to meet them again. Writing this makes me so sad.....I really really miss them. IenzoDarkness, IchigoKyutai, WithinTheHeart, Smileyfication.....Cherish your buddies for life people!!

 

12- Making more new friends to compensate for the ones you have lost: These people make you forget the heartbreak....but only momentarily. But they are amazing no matter what!!! Thank you so much to the people who have done this for me!

 

13- Loving EVERY moment of this site due to its wonderful archive and its wonderful people. Thank you guys and Booksie, I really appreciate it amd will never forget my time spent here. I joined when I was 11 and maintained my first account till I was 13 and had aquired 55 fans by then and I loved each one of them. After that, I was preparing for my exams so I had to leave for sometime but when I came back, none of myfriends were there and I got depressed and left for good. Two years after that, I made this account to get a fresh start and my experience has been pretty good so far! Thank you to everyone who helped me! I love you guys to the moon and back!

 

P.S: If you like my work, please comment! It makes my day! If you want to be friends amd you REALLY like my work, then send me a fan request! I love seeing double orange boxes! Thank you guys!! I LOVE YOU! 

 

PPS: EdwardJBradleySr,  if you are reading this, please don't hate me! You are a wonderful person to have made us all feel welcome to this site and I'm sure we all appreciate it.

I can't stress the fact that I know these experiences unnaturally well. Seriously, every single one sounds like it was describing me. It's uncanny. I definitely know the BFF one, my two BFF's, PoeticMe143 and Girly Girl Star are both from Booksie. :D I couldn't love them more. Also, this is kind of embarrassing and I usually don't share it on Booksie, but I'm only 11. 12 on November 22nd. :) Please don't judge until after you read my books. *Hides* But all in all, this is just perfect! I love Booksie!

Thank god I am not the only one who was CONVINCED EdwardJBradleySr is Mr Booksie! I hate the people who when you read their work and ask them to check out something of yours and they just don't do it. And the ones who you read their stuff once and for months afterwards they continue to send reading requests despite the fact they have read nothing of yours so don't really have the right. I mean if someone consistently reads my work I will check out their writing without need of a request. Common sense really. I have a Booksie Bestie, she's totally awesome and she made me a cameo and her novel is literally my favourite in the world and I say as much on my profile! I fangirl about it so much and when I tell her she just doesn't believe me and thinks I'm being nice. I'm kind of incapable of being nice. And I always experience the profile thing. I look at other peoples and either think 'oh wow its so good!'and get jelly or it doesn't load and I get annoyed at the amount of gifs they cram into it! This list is spo on and gave me a good laugh! Keep up the good work!

Thank you so much! I still don't know if he is Mr.Booksie or not butbI hope he isn't mad that I spoke about him without his permission! Your friend sounds really nice! I wish I had someone like that! This account is still new so dont have that many friends yet but I'm sure I will one day! Thanks for reading, I love you!

yes I think we all have gone through this phase, it is quite exciting to know that there are more of us that feel the same way about booksie, and yes it is great to know that you have friends in far off places, great piece of work.

(A) I like Edward Bradley fans. (B) My pet peeve on Booksie is contests: The prizes offered are lame. I have often suggested offering better prizes FIRST PRICE should be a new car. SECOND PRIZE should be a 7 day Caribbean cruise for two. THIRD PRIZE should be a set of steak knives (see YouTube Glengary Glen Ross Alec Baldwin Speech to fully appreciate what I mean - just superb acting and very believable). Sadly, no one ever took me up on the prizes, not even the steak knives. Sigh.

Bahahahaha, that made me laugh so hard I'm not even kidding XD. Definitely, contests would be wayyyyy more fun that way but sadly, nobody will be willing to volunteer XD Anyway, thanks for reading! I really appreciate it!

Ahh yes, EdwardJBradleySr, that same thing happened to me, and I found it funny how he was mentioned in this. I had another account before this one as well, got fan's from him on both accounts, hehe, but I don't believe he is Mr Booksie. I just love making friends on this site and I don't want them to disappear, I love my Booksie friends, I appreciate everyone of them. So much of what you have written is very true, which makes it kind of funny. I enjoyed reading this. After reading through your profile I have a reading request if you don't mind. I was just wondering if you could please read my novel, 'EmberSpring' nine chapters are out so far but you don't have to read them all. I would really appreciate it, and thank you for your time even if you don't read it.

Well, in my previous account, I had a poem up at the time he sent me a fan request so he DID put in a comment but I doubt he read it, lol
Thanks for reading! I love you!

Read your profile. Reading request: COLD SUMMER my short novel. It is fantasy with an amazing concept of life with no sun. It is like a diary entry and so conversational. It is reaching its climax.. in the next chapter. Only 3 short chp to read. OK I am doing one of thhe thins you mentioned above LOL.
If you like reading thrillers then you can read my novels dangerous beauty and callsfrom room # 1017. For adventure and history you can read survival. I;ll return the favour. I promise!! Fanned you too!

You made it right on time! I just stopped raking reading requests! I'll try to read as many as I can but please understand, I'm really strapped for time as I'm preparing for my board exams which is my first public exam so I'm super stressed! I'll try anyway!

LMAO!!! This has got me thinking, maybe I could pay people to read my stuff. Nah, could be pretty expensive. One thing that really irritates me is when somebody uploads 10 or 12 chapters on their novel all at once, so they push your one upload right off the "Read" menu screen, so you don't get any reads at all, even random ones. Most of my readers, what few there are, aren't even on booksie. That's gets really depressing after awhile. Another irritation is when booksie is not counting reads anyway. They say they are keeping track of them, but what for? They don't restore them once their being counted again. And I wish they would take the likes away. Its embarrassing when don't get any. Nevertheless, hears a like.

That's a good idea but I don't think it would give you a great amount of satisfaction or happiness :P yes, people like that are very annoying but we have to live with them......can't really do anything about them, right? Awwwww.....please don't feel depressed! It takes some time but gradually, through enough marketing of your work in the correct manner, you will succeed! Nobody becomes a millionaire in a day :) I'll read your work when I open up my reading requests again, I promise :)

LOL, The one and Only EdwardJBradleySr......... I think he's Mr Booksie too, I mean, whenever you see someone's fans, he is always the first fan there!!!!! But, like you said, his comments always make you smile!!! But, anyways, I think I've experienced most of them things!!!!!! :-)

Haha, I just got to know he's not, lol. TheBooksieGuy is Mr.Booksie and he's commented on this article too! He doesn't send fan requests I guess:) Anyway, I'm glad you could relate! This is the reason I love writing these articles!

Oh wow, how true this is. From my very first account here (about three years ago), I've probably experienced all of these. Except the friends... I've made to many accounts and switched back and forth for friends haha. You aren't the only one who thought Edward was Mr. Booksie. I actually got a comment from an older lady once telling me to watch out accepting fan requests from old men... I guess she didn't know he fanned EVERYONE. Maybe he didn't fan her or something? Hmm... Anyway, I really like how close you got to every single person on Booksie ? Also, could you take a quick gander at my short story, The Story of Skin, when you have the time? I know you stated your busy right now so I'm in no way asking you to read it now xD (p.s. Bethany Mota is amazing.)

Awwwww.....I'll be your friend, don't worry! Haha, yeah, as long as you don't upload any personal information here, all is good :) I used to have my artwork and one of my selfies on my profile before but I've removed them now :P well, it wasn't every single person but yeah, quite a few :) Everyone here is very nice:)
Sure, I'll put your story on my list and I'll read it when I get time (about a few weeks later)! The title has already got me interested ;)
Yesssss...,.Beth is amazing but has stopped uploadinngggg.....makes me kind of sad and angry at the same time Lil :P

I thought I was special when Edward J Bradley fanned me too. Then I realised I wasn't D: It is funny that you mention him in this :P I don't usually read articles but I found this amusing and I like how it's sort of banded us Booksians together haha ^_^
