Hello Snapzu. Can we be friends?

I admit I came here on the great Reddit migration. I lurked on reddit for longer than I care to admit, but never felt compelled to create an account. I was more than happy with consuming content created by the "other people" who must be better at internet-ing than myself. See, I'm not old, but I'm not young either. I'm old enough to have outgrown the compulsion to share every opinion I have, but still young enough that I want to (and believe I can) make a difference in this world. Plus, I will admit, sometimes technology gets the better of me.

So when I heard about this "snappy" place, I had to check it out. And I fell in love. Here is a place where quality content exists, discussions are civil, open-minded and downright kind. I instantly felt like I could actually be a contributing member of this magical place. And three days in, I feel like I have made an impact. Nothing major, or even noteworthy, but I have put ideas out there and others have responded. I feel all warm and fuzzy and may have even run around my house jumping up and down and yelling, "I'm winning the internet!" when I got my first comment on a post.

My request, as a brand spankin' new member of this community, please please please don't change. Stay small. Stay interested in new ideas, alternative perspectives, and a welcoming community. Keep encouraging each other. Don't become obsessed with imaginary internet points. Keep making me jump around with joy because I made a connection with a complete stranger.

In short, can we be friends?

    Lovely to meet you! I'm new, too, but still (mostly) stuck in that lurker-mode. Looking forward to discovering all the new stuff and maybe even creating some stuff of my own.

      Nice to meet you too! My advice, as a three day old member (an old sage, I know), is to just jump in and start doing stuff!

        Yeah, but, that's the hardest part. I'm very slowly figuring the whole site out (not much help I'm on a mobile) and finding things are SO DIFFERENT! I'm really enjoying it. I can't say I'm much of a content creator, sadly though. Comment sections are where it's AT.

          I can't imagine creating or linking content on mobile - I don't blame you! As for navigation, I've struggled with that a bit too. It comes with practice, like all good things! :)

    Pleased to meet you! I think you'll win at the internet quite often here.

      Oh, hooray! My husband and cats enjoy my silly dances, or at least that's what I tell myself.

        I'm a husband, I can verify we like our wives doing silly dances. However, you'll have to ask a cat for further verification.

      Hahaha Yeah, I was a little late in introducing myself. I got too wrapped up in posting snaps and talking to people that I forgot to do this part!

    I would love to be your friend just like you I have switched from Reddit so far everything seems different maybe because its so new, but so far I really enjoy it :)

      Friends, then! This place is different, but in a good way. Like chicken and waffles.

        I love Chicken and Waffles, they are just a better version of pancakes, but with syrup trappers to get all he flavor

        • melanoleuca
          +2

          Yes! And everyone knows that waffles are superior to pancakes in the sogginess factor too. Add chicken and its just bonus.
