I just reread @firstredhead’s Fighting the Potato Apocalype, and I HAD to write a blog post on YSBU after my line in Chapter 4:
Cherry’s mouth gaped open in awe as she viewed the approaching army dig and push beneath the earth.
“I know this is a really bad time,” she said, not removing her gaze. “But this is so going on the blog.”
In case you didn’t know, APTers (a term we use for members of A Pointless Task) are obsessed with potatoes, for some reason. FtPA is this super-potatorific longform book which has a star-studded cast of characters which consists of various Storybirders (not all could be mentioned in this blog post, unfortunately). The plot is face-paced, intriguing and just – amazing. Even if you don’t know those Storybirders, it’s a great read. Now, onto the post:

You know you’re a Storybird Addict when you know the URLs to all the major pages by heart.
So I was editing Autumn‘s 11th Chapter, and I found it wasn’t saving. Turned out that Storybird is taking a nap. And this doesn’t sound like just any nap; they said it’s a long one, and I don’t think I can live a day without Storybird. Are they adding some uber-cool features? Are they adding the new logo? I have no idea, but I can’t wait until it wakes up so that I can edit that “namez” and make it “names”.
At least you can still read books! =D
How AWESOME is that?? =D =D =D
I am reading loads of books at the moment, in and out of Storybird. Here are some books I really recommend =D Happy reading!

After doing so myself, reading Bittersweet, and many other books like it, I see the wonderful masterpiece we’ve created here. We’ve molded a place for the Storybirders after us to fall back on, just as the ones before us did. We are creating a place of love and peace; for some, the only place they feel safe.
And I think that’s beautiful.”
“Storybird is like a never-ending puzzle. Each member is a new piece, which just expands the beautiful picture.
But when someone leaves, they take their peace with them. We know what the picture looks like, and we’ll always remember them, but when they leave, we lose a piece of Storybird.”
Here’s this week’s dose of “What Storybird Means to Me”! Thank you everyone for your contributions! Keep a lookout for this post every Monday! 🙂
primadonna_girl: I feel as if Storybird is a special and unique way to not just write stories, but to make friends that will last forever.
There are so many different ways to frame your creativity. It can even be an inspirational comment. Or it could be a picture book that makes it’s way to Featured.
To me, Storybird is a gift.
Forever and always. ❤
Sweet_Pea: Storybird is my rainbow amidst the storm that we call life. In my deepest sorrows, I can turn to Storybird for a guaranteed smile. It’s a place so perfect that it seems to be a fantasy. All in one place I can finally release my imaginations so they mold into stories, read endless books by people like me, and meet some of my best friends. Storybird is definitely the best thing that has ever happened to me.

I’m a little short on ideas about what to post at the moment, and I need some fellow admins. If you’re interested, just comment below, with your username, why you want to admin and what you have in mind. You need to be a Storybirder, and have at least 5 books/chapter books/poems. I’ll talk to you on Storybird about administrating the blog soon after you comment 😀
