NMG Anniversaries!!

Tomorrow is my 2 year anniversary of being on this wonderful site, so I thought I'd make a board too talk about (my answers in brackets):

  1. When we joined (August 1st 2018)
  2. Why we joined (I had the magazine)
  3. What our favourite part was at the beginning (Ask a girl, because I could give advice without actually really talking to people xD)
  4. (If you can remember) What the first thing you did was (I can't remember xD)

Soooo, share your stories! (And read the tags and URL)

You need to be a member of NMG Members to add comments!

    1) March 15th, 2013

    2) My mom had brought home a bunch of old NMG magazines from the library, and I had been reading them over and over for about a year or so. Then we found the website, and thought it looked really cool. And for my 11th birthday, my parents surprised me with a magazine/online community subscription :D

    3) The RPs. There was one that I was a part of, that actually had a conclusion, and the creator wrote a book about. It was called "Town of Depression". There were also a ton of Warrior Cats RPs that went on forever. It was awesome.

    4) Oh gosh....I think I just explored the site for a while, and then posted some random discussion.

    2. I had seen the magazine in the library and then my mom bought me one, and during a very intense period of begging on a family road trip, whining in the car about please get me the online community, here I am xD
    3. I really liked PM-ing people (you probably know who you are xD) :P
    4. Probably PM somebody but I have a core memory of posting a pusheen drawing that had already been made on devian art because I was a little bb and then the mods (Sarah, I believe) told me they took the drawing down, I was so scared my account would be deleted since I did something wrong xDD
  • 1) December 21st, 2015. (I’m an old soul.)
    2) Kiki Magazine, which was going out of business, was offering NM subscriptions to its members. (it actually took a really long time to set up because I forgot to put my birth year in the form and no one realized, my mom even contacted the staff xDD)
    3) I don’t remember; I wasn’t all that active.
    4) I believe it was posting a drawing I did of a wolf made out of duct tape (don’t ask). I was then promptly contacted by a mod for including a clickable link to another site in the photo description, which I guess wasn’t allowed back then. oh, how things have changed... I was very embarrassed xD
  • 1: Around June 6, 2019
    2: I had the magazine, and I was really curious about the website so I decided to try it
    3: umm, probably the rps. I wasn’t really that active until I joined a rp
    4: I think I stalked a lot of people at the beginning, and I made that hogwarts mystery board xD

Siblings Not Wanting To Hangout With You

Lately I feel like my brother would rather read then hang out with me. Now it might not seem that big, but, to me it is. We have a very close relationship for siblings and I miss playing with him. I know I'm overreacting but it feels like all he wants to do is read and draw and play Minecraft. -Anonymous   Hi there!  I’m sorry you’re feeling this way. I understand what it’s like, and it can really hurt. Everyone changes, hits puberty, and develops at different times. Part of it could be that…

Supporting An LGBTQ+ Sibling

How can I support my Lgbtq+ sister going through puberty and in social situations? -Anonymous Hello there!  This is a very good question, and I hope my advice is helpful to you <3  The main thing is: Be there for her. If she has questions, do your best to answer them. If she needs a listening ear, or a big hug, sit there and let her talk, or supply said hug. Just simple things like that can go a long way, even if it doesn't seem like it. And don't judge her, or say her questions are silly, or…

Coming Out To Family

How do I come out to family? -Anonymous Hi there! This is a loaded question that has many different answers, because everyone's family situation is different. Before you come out to a family member, the biggest thing to consider is: Is your family homophopbic? If the answer is 'yes' or 'I don't know', then you should definitely think really hard about how you want to come out, and make sure you have a backup plan in case things don't go so well. If you're coming out in a maybe-iffy environment,…

Excercising When You Don't Want To

I despise PE. I always get picked last in activities, not because people don’t like me but because I have no athletic abilities whatsoever. I can’t run, I can’t hit, I can’t do push-ups... I want to get better, but I don’t want to do these things when I don’t have to (I know it’s important to exercise but I don’t like it, and I don’t like most sports). What should I do? –Anonymous    Hi! I’m sorry you dislike PE and feel like you always get picked last, captains choosing teams is really not the…

And if you want to, you can change your user name to a "not real" name that will then also be used in the magazine if your Ask A Girl question is published.
