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?
