I've been in the hospital so I was a bit behind in saying hi to the newbies. I was surprised to see how many people had no responses or only one or two. For many the newbie nook is their first experience at FW. I know Ms. Barbie welcomed me with a nice personal note and some advice when I joined. It was that warmness that made me want to keep coming back.
The more members who join, the better off FW and we the writers are. It allows more people to see our work, not to mention the great fellowship. I don't know if I could have made it through these past couple of weeks without the prayers, love and support from so many members here.
Take time to pop into the newbie nook and leave a personal note to the new members. Let them know how wonderful you all really are!
