Today I am thankful for:

My spouse & kid, who make my home a place of joy and refuge

Books I can return to again and again for comfort

Readers who find connection with what I write

My stepdaughter’s Pom, who put up with my amateurish puppy pets

My cats, who don’t care that I smell like dog now

And math. Because math is cool.

Hi, if you retoot that with the hashtag "introduction" (+#...) , then you might see some more feedback and shares. :-)

@EzqimoXV I did an intro when I joined a few months back, but I've been thinking with all the new folks it might make sense to do another one? Don't want to spam anybody.

@lizmonster
Intros or interests toots are useful info that helps build community.

Should in fact be repeated "semi-regularly" precisely in order to reach newcomers that haven't seen the previous ones. That is not "spam" as long as they are serious. The one I pointed to here is very nice.

(And it is good to vary them a bit so that each new one is not exactly the same as the others.)
