We've been lucky!

It's Like Stepping Into a Deep Pool!

Oh, wow, sometimes going to a new writer's site feels like stepping into the deep end of a big pool. You imagine there's a deathly silence, as your writing is scrutinized. I guess the quickest way towards feeling more comfortable is to simply tell

Hi. I saw your comment in Hollyhocks100's profile page. If you still don't know the answer to your question - to follow someone, just go to that person's profile page. At the top, on the right side of the page, you can see a "follow me!" button. Just click it and wait for the page to load. Once it does, you will see that the button has been replaced with a "stop following" button. Hope this helped.
