About This Newsletter

Welcome to this issue of the Noticing Newbies newsletter.

I thought it would continue with some more groups, forums, and some activities that you can check out and maybe get involved in.

This newsletter is about and for you. And for you seasoned members, I hope you'll find something you can take from my ramblings.

This newsletter's goal is to showcase our Newbies here at WDC in a wide range of different
kinds of items to enjoy and also to give the Newbies some tools and items to help them along the way, as well as other places for them to check out and maybe join in.

There are a lot more goodies here now than when I first came here, don't get me wrong there were good goodies when I came along too, I just mean that there are a lot more goodies now and every year in September there are more goodies added as we celebrate WDC turning another year ever September. For now, WDC has been around for 21 years, isn't that wonderful? This is the best community around.

This newsletter is about and for you. And for you seasoned members, I hope you'll find something you can take from my ramblings.

Comments From My Last Newsletter Listed On Newsfeed:

Rupali Goswami I joined a couple of groups and some activities.
Me: Great *smle*

Zevran I keep seeing the Newbie Contest listed but it has not been active for a year.
Me: I am sorry I will try to find some that are active, but not every group or contest will be for Newbies. Still, you are welcome to join contests, groups, and activities, and possibly other forums too. I will try to give links for the Newbies Newsletter that you may find interesting. At least that is my goal.
Zevran Understood. No worries.

meadowsauthors {Joining groups could be interesting and activities to improve creativity is always needed.
Me: You are so right!

jdennis I'm not a groupie, but I am active.
Me: Well, you don't have to be a groupie.
