Welcome to WdC, Ari Lox! I don't think I've greeted you yet...or maybe I did and just don't remember. *RollEyes*

Anyway, if people haven't clicked the Plus sign by your name (AKA made you a favorite of theirs or become your fan), they won't see your posts unless they are on the Community Newsfeed like I currently am. I see you have some interesting stuff, so I really encourage you to meet folks and make friends, which will eventually lead to fans. *Wink*

To do that, aside from entering contests, blogging, and socializing in other areas (all ways to help find fans), I think one of the easiest ways is through the Community Newsfeed. When you click the Newsfeed button on the left side, it will take you to your Personal Newsfeed where you will only see things posted by people YOU have clicked the Plus sign of. Along the top of your Personal Newsfeed, you will see "View the Community Newsfeed." Click that and start scrolling. Like things. Comment. Over time people will see you interacting with them more and more and some will start clicking your Plus sign and will start seeing what you post, even if they are on their Personal Newsfeed. *Wink*

Anyway, welcome and good luck with everything! I like your post here. *Smile*
Thank you for the tips, Schnujo .
Although I've been on the board for a year and reviewed over 100 stories, getting the hang of WdC has not come easily to me.
I really appreciate the info about the Community Newsfeed.
Ari Lox
You're very welcome! I was here entirely too long before I knew the importance of having fans and before I knew the Community Newsfeed even existed. *Blush*

Not everyone wants or needs fans and that's fine. But I hate to see people post about not having any friends or post things like, "I don't know if anyone will even see this..." They obviously don't know how it all works. It's a fairly simple system, so I'm trying to educate folks. They can choose to work the system to get fans or not, but at least they know why no one is acknowledging their posts. *Wink*

Good luck with everything your writing! *Shamrock*
Hello there Ari Lox!

I'm hopping around different notebooks and ports today thanks to a challenge I took on to bring me one step closer to White/Red Queen/King *Cheshire*. It's great to hop on in to visit you!
