First and foremost, welcome to the forum!
I promise it's not as big and scary as it looks at first glance.
The first thing I'd like to cover about the forum is the search feature. This is the little search bar right at the top of the screen and it searches everything on the site. All you need to do is type something in, press go, and select "discussions.&quo t; This is great if you're looking to start a new thread, because you can make sure that you're not starting a repeat thread and
have the advantage of being able to read through previous discussions about something where you may well find your answer. It's also awesome for finding random things to read when you're bored
I see you mention that you just started a blog, and we conveniently have a Community Blog Directory
that you can not only add your blog to but also check out the blogs of other people in the community.
We have a whole bunch of awesome clubs
that are open to everybody, so all you really need to do is just show up at the meetings and join in. You can also check out the clubs blog
which has a bunch of summaries of all the meetings that have happened so far, along with the awesome Eden Lit submissions.
If you end up with questions about stuff, we're a pretty friendly group and you can message pretty much anybody (myself included) if you have a question about something. Welcome to the community, and I hope to see you around!
