Me:


You guys: You're ignoring us, and planning some secret mission? Oh brother. I think we've lost her.
Me:


You guys: Uhm, this doesn't sound serious, but it's concerning us.. O.o
Me: Go away, guys. I'm planning something important..
You guys: o.O *backs up a bit*
Me:


You guys: What on earth...

A very all over the place intro, if I do say so myself. Hehe!

Any who, without any further ado, let's get right to todays post!

Todays post, is about the importance of safety on Animal Jam. When someone says 'safety on Animal Jam', you probably immediately think they're talking about keeping your password safe, and prevention from getting scammed. Which are all very good topics, and an article about keeping your password safe was written by AJHQ in 2014, which you can view by clicking here

But the kind of safety I'm talking about, is very serious, and may even be the most important safety factor when playing a game.

The kind of safety we will always need when playing online, is keeping your state, city, home address, phone number, email, and Skype, private. This is all because you really, truly, don't know who's behind that screen. They might portray themselves as a young girl or boy playing Animal Jam, but the truth is, they could be an adult for all we know.

You might think "I can trust them, it will be alright.", but really, this is very unsafe, especially if it's something your parents don't know about, and don't allow.

If you share your home address, there is always a chance of getting hurt, due to the fact, like I said above, you don't know who's behind the screen. 

How do you prevent from getting hurt, or endangered? Here are five easy tips to follow!

Also, never feel like you have to give someone your information, because honestly, you don't. The only 'information' you should share, are things that are not personal, such as your favorite color, favorite Animal Jam item, etc.. 

Sharing personal information might be more serious than you may think, so it's important we all keep our personal information private, even if you think you can trust the person who's asking for it.

I hope these tips help you stay safe on Animal Jam! ^.^

And now, for this weeks chapter of 'Follow Your Dreams'!

Chapter 2

That night, I sat on my bed, making phone calls to every blogger on The Animal Jam Friendship Community. "Hello?" Coolcat answered in a happy tone. "Hey. Can you chat?" I asked, tapping my fingers on my bed. "Yeah! What's up?" She asked, still sounding cheery. "It's about the blog. Have you been on there recently?" I questioned, as anxiety about all this filled up within me. "No, why?" She asked in a curious tone. "You might wanna check it out.." I said. "Okay, just a second, I'll look at it." She said, as she walked over to her laptop, and flipped open the cover. There was silence for a few seconds, as Coolcat typed in the URL of the blog. "Whoa." She said in a hoarse whisper. "Did you-" I began, but suddenly Coolcat let out a low shriek. "What's wrong?" I asked, beginning to get a bit shaky, worrying about what could be going on. "Oh my gosh.." She stuttered. "There's a new blog post made by 'DestroyTB', whoever that is, and it says this, 'Hello everyone. I am DestroyTB, the new blog owner of The Animal Jam Friendship Community. I hacked all the authors on here, and deleted their accounts. Why am I releasing such information? Because I know these old authors on here are too young and unintelligent to know how to stop me. My next goal is to hack them on Animal Jam, and destroy the blogger's once and for all.' Then at the very bottom at the post, it has some weird, Hebrew looking writing." She said quickly, waiting for a response. It felt like heavy bricks were placed on my shoulders, and there was no way I'd be able to get them off. I sighed deeply, and tried to focus more on the mystery of the Hebrew looking writing. "Did you try copying and pasting the letters into a translator website?" I asked her, trying to avoid getting on the subject of DestroyTB hacking us. "No, but I'll try." She said, pulling up a new tab on her browser. "That's weird, it says no results found." She said, confused at her finding, "Really? Huh." I said, my voice trailing off, as I looked at the note I had found with Hebrew looking writing. "I have to go, But I can talk more about this tomorrow." She told me, her voice getting a bit happier. I nodded. "Okay, talk to you then! Bye." I said with a smile. "Bye!" Coolcat said, as we hung up. I decided to take a break from calling for the night, and go to bed. It was 11 PM, and my parents were already asleep. I went out of my bedroom, and slowly shut the door. I went across the hall to the bathroom, and brushed my teeth. Before I walked out, I noticed another mysterious note. "Another note?" I wondered aloud, as I picked it up. This note read, 'DestroyTB might be trying to hack you, but God is greater then DestroyTB, and will bring you the peace that passes all understanding.' Again, the signature had that Hebrew looking writing. "Who's putting notes in the house?" I said, confused about all this. I examined the note, and carefully carried it into my bedroom.

Here's this weeks Bible verse!

Hebrews 11:6

And it is impossible to please God without faith. Anyone who wants to come to him must believe that God exists and that he rewards those who sincerely seek him.

Remember, God made YOU!

Stay positive, be yourself, and spread God's Word everyday!

  1. Those are some good tips. :D But I don't totally agree with the one about not buddying everyone you meet. True, you don't have to. You'd run out of buddy spaces. :P

    But if you're just friends with someone on AJ, then it's not a safety issue unless they ask for private info.

    (Heh, you technically have broken these rules, Gracie. XDD Oh well!)
