My first foray into Persona Paper

Hello, my name is Diane Jayne and this is my first peek into a writing site. I must admit that I am a little nervous, as this is very different to anything I have tried before. I am horribly afraid that I am going to "do something wrong" and get booted off as I am struggling a little bit to understand how the site works and I am trying to get a feel for things.

I have read some other people's articles and liked them (do I have to like them?) and I have made a few comments, which I hope are appropriate and relevant. NO doubt in a few months I will look back on this first article and cringe when I read it, as it sounds quite mad.

I can that there are a number of categories to choose from to post my articles under, but I have to say that most of mine will be pretty random, as I have pretty random thoughts and ideas and I will be wanting to share these with others and get comments and other people's opinions back from time to time.

I do write reviews on another site but I have sort of left that behind me now as I was getting just a little bit bored with writing so many reviews on boring topics such as hair shampoo and fabric conditioner, I was going stir crazy and decided that this might be the better option of the two.

I have looked down the list of members of this site and I must admit that some of the names do look a little bit familiar to me already from the review site I used to be a member of. I need to figure out how notifications work and how to navigate the site better as I only started here about half an hour ago when I logged onto my emails and saw that I had been "accepted" as a member.

I am also wondering how I go about finding members, but no doubt I will figure that out in the coming weeks (or months).

I am going to leave adding any pictures and so forth to my articles, to begin with, at least, as I am not a very technical sort of person and I am easily confused.

I hope to have a lot of fun here and I am sure I will.

If you haven't already, look over the Rules, FAQ and Acceptable Use Policy. Most of our rules and how to's should be right there, and if they aren't, and you have a question, just ask! We do no booting without warnings first, unless of course, you plagiarize, and in which case, there are no warnings for that emoticon :winking:
We're a friendly and helpful community so just jump in.

Welcome to Persona Paper, do spent a bit of time reading the FAQs and How it works section there also a lot of articles in the persona paper category that you might find useful. Any questions do feel free to ask we don't bite, honestly. I have found this one of the friendliest communities on the internet, people are always happy to answer questions.

A few months later, you will be so busy with reading the articles of your "new" friends here, and you will not have time to look at your old articles.

Welcome. It can be intimidating to join a new site. You want to join in, but you don't want to be a wedding crasher.

It is nice to meet you on here. I hope you come back and write so I and others can interact with your posts.
