How it works: it's not quick. Build up a following list, add to it slowly, stop when you have enough.
@mandyHoneyman Hi Mandy, nice to meet you. I think of this as a place of small and slow. Small: a place to take the time to notice and appreciate the little things that too often pass by unnoticed
Slow: where conversations run over days and weeks. You can take the time to reflect and ponder.
It might not be easy to find your around, but I hope it's not hard either. When in doubt: ask :)
I agree with Kate--it goes slowly but it is very much worth it. Take your time to find people. And don't be afraid to try interacting with those you don't know but who seem interesting. I have not had a bad experience here with that yet, and have made many new connections!
