WHEN YOU ENTER THE WEBSITE BIZ
When you enter the website biz, you think everything's all happy and fluffy and you get to say whatever you want. And at first it is, because you're new and nobody really knows about your site. But you're about to change that.
WHEN YOU TRY SPREADING THE NEWS ABOUT YOUR SITE
You're a little websiter trying to tell everyone all about your site. You go on to all the popular sites, comment on their guestbooks, the whole deal. And now you're waiting for the visitors to just come pouring in.
WHEN YOU'RE WAITING
So you're just waiting. You had, like, three people visit your site. Your remember you commented on all the sites you could find. And you're like, "What the hooplah?? Where's everybody?" You'll wait a long while.
WHEN PEOPLE ARE ACTUALLY GOING TO YOUR SITE
Great, people are finally visiting. Even if there's only 15 people visiting, you think you're the luckiest person in the world. And you're being the perky person everybody must love, saying stuff like, "Ooh, comment, tell me what you think, would you like some fries with that?" Then you check your email and read some of the comments.
WHEN YOU READ THOSE COMMENTS
You're skimming over those comments. And most of them say stupid stuff like, "Um, try changing the design of the background!" Did you know that really they're muttering stuff to themselves more like, "Ugh, you don't put yellow text on white backgrounds! Amateur"? Yes, they really do think that. Well, you see those frilly, nice comments and then you realize that it's not enough. You need some inspiration.
WHEN YOU'RE LOOKING FOR INSPIRATION
You're still a young websiter, so you don't exactly care about copyright and fancy stuff like that. So you go back to all the popular sites and nab all the popular gifs and stuff. And you post them on your own site.
WHEN IT'S UTTER PANDEMONIUM
"Those are graphics from my site, could you possibly take them down or give me some credit?" Again, with the frilly, nice comments. What they really mean is, "What do you think you're doing??! That's MINE! Take it down, you weenie-butt!" And you're like, "Okay! That's fine! I'll take 'em down, don't worry! Ugh, flubbernauts!!!"
WHEN YOU FEEL LIKE KICKING SOMEONE IN THE HEAD
Stupid people. How come they can't see how awesome you are? You feel like shutting down the site once and for all! You know, with soccer practice and band, you might as well. So you do.
WHEN YOU MISS THE WEBSITE BIZ
You're missing your site, people are swarming you with "I miss you"s, and you just come back and start out fresh. You get in the hang of things. After all that, everything's pretty peachy.
WHEN EVERYTHING'S PRETTY PEACHY
It'll be quite peachy for a looong while. You've finally got down HTML and stuff, and people love going to your site. And you're singing at yourself in the mirror because you're on top of the world. You're, like, a websiter teen. And oh look, some websiter babies are coming along.
WHEN YOU GREET THE NEWCOMERS
There will be new people entering the websiting biz. And you will be there when they come. They tell you to visit their site, just like how you did to others when you were new. So you visit it with such high expectations. And you are mad!!!! You see that site and are either "What?? This is horrible!!!" or "What?? This is fantastic, how come I'm not like that??!" They'll always have some copyrighted material, though. But of course, you have to give them the frilly, nice comments. Eh, you'll get used to it.
WHEN YOU'RE A WEBSITER OLDIE
You're pretty old in the website biz. You're basically retired from the the adult stage. Now all these websiters are coming and treating you like you're royalty. "Omg, ur sit is gr8!!! u shud check mine out" (Honestly, you can't stand that texting lingo.) And when you do check their sites out, your wise heart understands everything. Oh dear, this websiter is being unoriginal and acting like a hyper, random tween girl. Just like the rest of them. You would have enjoyed this kind of cliche` stuff as a websiter teen, but now you're just sick of it. You're not gonna say it, though. The frilly, nice comment strikes again. You realize how much better off your site is when you put your own unique twist on it. And then you and your old self watch websiter babies evolve while you're in website biz paradise. . .
In short, you start as an inexperienced baby that acts like the popular sites. As you grow, you feel really good about yourself. Then, you hit a bump in the road, but you end up going back to the drawing board again. When you start learning all this stuff, you feel like you know way more than other websiters and you are AWESOMETATIOUSFUL.
