Can't We All Just Get Along?

 


I started ScoobyAddicts.com in February of 2007 because I wanted to have everything Scooby in one place for myself and I thought that if anyone else liked it as well, that would be a bonus. I had a previous site called PantherGR's Scooby-Doo Website. PantherGR was a web handle I used and the website was just a rinky-dink little site dedicated to Scooby with some general info. 

Over the years, I have compiled information, done some interviews, and I try to post daily on social media. It's not always easy to keep up with things as life gets in the way.  I'm married with kids, a couple dogs, I just moved into a cool Victorian house that everyone refers to as my Scooby-Doo house, and I work full time. I don't always have the time to update new episodes or villains. I try my best, but I know that my website isn't always complete. I do have plans to make a lot of updates soon though.

I don't much appreciate it when someone contacts me and gets angry because my website isn't updated with new episodes, cursing at me because they want the information on the website now. I don't always have time to watch the episodes right away. I also know how frustrating it can be to look up information and not have it available, but there are better ways to go about it than to send me angry messages. Be kind and understand that everyone has something going on in their life.



The greatest thing about the internet is that there are so many options to choose from. Like my website, there are many other fan sites and social media accounts on the internet that have great information. I don't see them as my competition because I believe that the internet is big enough for more than one Scooby-Doo fan site. It would be boring if all anyone got to look at was my website and no one else was able to share their creativity in creating their own. 

I don't believe there needs to be jealousy between fan site creators either. As I said in the beginning of this post, I created ScoobyAddicts for me, not because I wanted to be better than anyone else. I wanted to do something that made sense for me and it's a bonus that people like my site. We don't have to look at each other as if we are trying to steal followers away from each other. We all have a common connection and we should be working together and supporting each other. 



It's the same with social media. We can all get along and post what we want, repost each other's posts, and live in the social media world peacefully. I love to see pictures of new merchandise, posting new information, pictures of voice actors you've met, interviews that have been done, etc. It's great to have so many people that want to share Scooby-Doo info. 

I believe that we can all celebrate Scooby-Doo in our own way and function together as Scooby fans. Whether it's through a website, social media, a podcast, whatever, we shouldn't be putting each other down or bashing each other. It's ok for people to like each one of us or just one of us. We shouldn't be in competition with each other. As long as you aren't stealing someone else's idea, be creative and have fun and lets work together to keep people interested in that fun-loving canine, Scooby-Doo!

Check out some of my favorite Scooby sites, social media accounts and podcasts. (I'm sorry if I forgot anyone. Also note that I only included what I thought was the main account and not all of the social media links for everyone. Please find their other links through their account.)
