New Members! How Can We Make Them Feel Welcome?
It's not always easy, being the "new kid on the block" (not the singing group). I was wondering what established writers here might think about forming an informal Welcoming Committee to greet the new members of Persona Paper.
When I notice someone new has joined, I usually write a short welcome note, either on the profile or the introductory post. The problem is, I don't check frequently enough and am sure I've missed some folks.
Have you ever received a welcome on a writing site when you were new there? If so, did it make you feel a little more at home or something else?
At this stage I'm simply gathering ideas and looking for input from others. Do you have any thoughts on a Welcoming Committee or something of that nature? Would you be willing to participate?
The floor is yours now. I await your feedback. : )
