A few newbie question from one newbie - me!
I hate being a n00b. I hate not knowing how everything works. I hate asking for help.
But I am going to ask a few questions and hope you guys would be kind enough to answer them for me. I have read the FAQ and things but maybe I missed some things.
1. I believe I know the answer just by seeing comments but is it OK and encouraged to let people know you are following them in a comment on their profile page ? As many know, some sites restrict people from saying that (for some reason). I was nervous about telling someone I was following them because I didn't want to break a rule. And because I didn't want them to feel like I said it because I wanted them to follow me back. Of course I DO but that isn't why I followed them initially. But it isn't against any rule to let someone know that you are following them, I assume?
2. Switching gears, I used two pictures in a post last night. I attributed the first one in the box but there was nowhere to attribute the second one so I just said where it came from at the bottom of the post. Is that how it is done when using more than one photo in a post ? Don't get me started on how to place the photos. I had a hard time moving the second one to where I wanted it but I will practice.
3. Is it all right to write about the same subject as you did or will elsewhere as long as the content is completely different? For instance, if I wrote about the Ebola virus coming to New York elsewhere and then came here and also wrote about it but wrote a whole new post (obviously in a similar vein). is that OK? No part would be the same as the other post except a possible random string of words.
4. Lastly for now, can we link our other posts written here within a post ? If I am talking about an illness I have and I also wrote about it a day ago, can I link that post in case anyone wants to read more about it? Is there a limit to links in a post if they are OK to use? I know that referral links and such are not allowed. I mean linking within the site not offsite. Then again, now I wonder what is OK to link to off the site. I have seen videos linked to. I think this constitutes a couple of questions so I will stop here.
That should do it for now. I really appreciate you reading this and answering if you can. I will eventually know what I am doing but I don't want to break a rule inadvertently. I really am a by the rules kinda person so I get a little crazy when I am uncertain. And I already AM a little crazy to start with. So the less crazy, the better for all involved. Ha!
