Q) How do you define "BTVfam"? And bodyroll jokes aside, how does one REALLY become BTVfam?
BTVfam is our online family. Most of the time, the connections we make from blogTV tend to be stronger than those we make in "real life". BTVfam is a group where not only we can call each other friends, but we become a closer unit..just like a family.
In all honesty to become BTVfam, you just have to be you and if anyone feels like you can connect with everyone else like they have"¦then you're in. It's not defined by bodyrolling, or "the book", or by a label, or even by the bracelet. BTVfam shares common interests, shares life experiences, and shares memories. I know we've been broken into a lot of mini-groups and I know there can be tension at times in BTVfam, but that's how families are.
We are all BTVfam even if not everyone knows each other..we came together through blogTV and carry it on in our everyday lives.
Q) How do you define "BTVfam"? Is there anything you'd add to or change in Jae's definition? Is BTVfam one group, a series of groups or just a concept?
Good question, Mel. I think Jae pretty much nailed it on the head. The points I want to stress is that in families, not everyone gets along. People who join the BTVfam think that we all love each other all the time, and this couldn't be farther from the truth. What I love about BTVfam is that we are just like a real family, with real problems. Hopefully tho, as a unified group, we all are willing to help other members in need and be there for each other.
As for the last part of your question, I feel that the BTVfam is a mixture of all three of the things you mentioned. We are one BIG family at heart, but it's much easier to define us as a concept of individuals who have a common feelings and beliefs. And as all families, there are smaller, more nuclear, families inside the giant one. <3
