Talk about why you participated in Snowflake &/or what you got out of it. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.
I have participated for...*checks*...5 years! I began in 2014, skipped 2016 for health reasons, and here I am.
Doing Snowflake seems to reground me in fandom, if that makes sense? It rekindles my love for my fandom, makes me think about why I'm here, and about the joy I get out of fandom. This such a huge part of my life that not everyone in my "real life"(I hesitate to call it that since why can't my online life be real? Grr) knows about, and Snowflake gives me a chance to celebrate it.
Plus, I generally get new friends out of Snowflake, which is fun.
And I love that it's always different, yet similar! I love the day where we do recs, and where people have to self rec since then it gives me things to read. *g*
Basically, as long as I remain enthusiastic about fandom, I'll prolly do Snowflake.
