My local friend encouraged me to join the DeafRead.com. The DeafRead website completely floored me, I hadn't expected to see many wonderful Deaf/HH b/vloggers. I truly love it. Ever since, I have enjoyed reading the various topics. Many various and challenging topics inspire me. It keeps me occupied and even make new few friends. A few months later, I had learned that DVTV coming up. I had decided to join the DVTV too! I have met many various people from all over the place. Wow! It is a worthwhile and educating experience. This year, I am extremely concerned and sad because the DVTV has been deteriorated. My friend who is the one suggested me to join the DeafRead. He is extremely disappointed in me how much I have changed. I am just a regular viewer like many others. I only want to express my own perspective. My concern is that some people may think I make a new friend with the specific person just because I like her/his opinion. It's not what you think. For example: I personally dislike the person however I only enjoy his/her interesting topics. I have always have been very careful in surrounding by many various Deaf/HH from all over the world. It hasn't been easy. Today I have made a very few friends through the DeafRead and DVTV.
I truly feel sorry for Tayler who sacrifices his own personal time to contribute this to the Deaf Community. I am not sure Tayler gets paid for doing this. Please be kind to him. If you aren't satisfied with Tayler's decision. You are obliged to leave his website by your choice. As I made a vlog earlier "Make a Choice" at the DVTV. I want to emphasize that I do not encourage you to leave the DVTV. Let's hope for the peace and unity.
Well I am leaving for good anyway.
Best Regards, Diane
