Hello :-)
« on: June 13, 2018, 09:52:57 am »
Hi everyone,

I've been wanting to post here for probably twenty years.  More recently, I've been waiting to write a magnum opus telling my story as a intro post.  It occurred to me instead to just say hello, and maybe the story will come.

The number of posters at this forum who I would have to thank for their unknowing help over the years that came from just reading posts is huge.

Anyway, just wanted to say hello :-)

Welcome to Susan's Place. The only time an introduction becomes a problem is if it lack paragraph breaks. Reading solid walls of text is really difficult because you lose your place and end up reading the same line several times. And yes, as a moderator I read almost everything that's posted. Even if I wasn't a moderator, I sill would read it because I am always looking for somebody with the problem who needs help so doing a little language policing comes along for free. If there is something I can help you with, just let me know.

Hi Isabel 🙋‍♀️ I’m so happy you have made it out of the reader zone and making comments.  I am sure there have been many others that have gained much knowledge from just reading.  When someone gains enough confidence or feels the need for closer contact, it feels good to add in your two cents or ask a question that’s been on your mind.
I hope to see more from you!

Hugs and smiles, Jessica 💁‍♀️

Hi, Isabel
I also welcome you but am sorry it took you 20 years of reading for you to feel safe enough to introduce yourself.

Whenever you feel ready, you can post your story in dribbles and drabs or a magnum opus. We all have stories to tell, most of them are true! I promise we don't criticize based on speellling or typogoofical errirs.

Hugs
Susan
