you should just invoite people to join, stay active on the su=ite and share content on all social networks often
the community expanded outwards im sorry the site isnt trafficed as much as it used to be. ill try adding some more dread vids to youtube and throw them up on here and see if that brings a couple people in. as for the rival there will be rivals in any business you get into even if the business is cooperation. i used to sell herb and i had rivals start rumors that i was weighing bags of herb down with beads idk how that even got started nor did i care at the point because my whole customer base knew it was bullshit but my point being is your rivals only have as much power over you as you give them. i know its probably incredibly hard seeing only 2 or 3 people on your incredibly well thought out site but its the best info source on the web for dreads that iv seen. as a naturalist the other sites are really offputting. promoting unnatural means to get a natural look from ones body is to hypocritical in my opinion.
yea your right
it was mainly 1 guy that runs a rival site and everytime id block him from spamming hed start vissous attacks ..to the point if he wasin this country thered be legal actions against him
but yea your right also i really appreciate this site for the community that formed
just want to see more people getting more active again
if you get popular there will be rumors started about you no matter how good of a person you are. there will always be people bringing the negativity. the only way iv found to avoid it is to be a complete recluse which isnt for everyone. I dunno about others but i found this site as a result not of hearing about you but from other members in the community suggesting the site and as a result of finding the site i found my method. there are different people on the site for differing reasons some people who are to lazy to start skimming through articles are most likly the ones who ask you directly. i dont remember the exact posts that brought me into the community but i didnt have to ask anyone i simply found out about the natural method and have been silently following you and other natural dreadies for a couple years while i did my attempt at it and i have to say i learned about the other methods first and they all sounded so unappealing. really not many people know dreads even hair dressers i find are the most ignorant people on the subject an ex of mine has been doing hair since middle school and she believed most of the steriotypes about dreads when she had to make some in high school. she was suprized when i told her no wax or products, i just wash and leave it and its healthier than her hair. i dont think of the site as being about you i think of it as a place to gain info and share ideas about dreadlocks just like how facebook isnt about zuckerburg its about people posting ignorant crap and getting spied on by govt agencies. sorry for the long response. wishing you all the best SE good to see another video
yea i know but i also get to be tyhe target of alot of negativity too
but the point was i always wanted it to be about the community here not about me
paused at 13:50 i completly understand over in my old city only about 8 km away but anyways i cant go anywhere without someone i know coming up and asking me for something and im naturally introverted to a high degree so it gets really annoying really quickly. But dont take you being the guy everyone goes to for advice as a negative thing i know it makes more work for you but just think of it as a compliment your becomeing dreadlock famous and you have been doing it longer than almost everyone else iv seen hell youv been dreading since before i was born so id say it gives you more qualified than a lot of people who speak on the subject.
