I just completed a short story entitled The Interview. It's based on a real event I experienced when working in public education, however I added a dash of this and pinch of that to make the recipe a bit spicier. Synopsis: Interviews for a high school counseling position take an unusual turn when Fred Everhart decides to apply.

I see you're new-ish to WdC. Welcome! *Hug1**Smile**Hug2* Though you should hop on the Community Newsfeed and socialize there to make friends. *Smile* Click Newsfeed, which takes you to your Personal Newsfeed by default. Then along the top, click "View the Community Newsfeed." Here you'll see what everyone is posting, not just your tiny corner of WdC. *Bigsmile* Scroll, Like, comment, and start making friends.

When you advertise your items, you should create a link to get folks to click. People are lazy and not too likely to hunt things down in your port, especially as it gets bigger and bigger. *Wink* There are 2 main links people usually post--item and bitem (big item) links. You need to use curly braces for all code on WdC. They're found above the square brackets on your keyboard. You also need the 7-digit item number. When you are in your port, it's on the item. It's also in it on the top, between the title and description.

I'll use my challenge (which you are welcome to join) as an example of how to create links. Item links are often used in conversation and bitem links are often used to get the attention of potential readers. You'll probably want to use bitem links for something like what you posted above. *Smile*

You can edit your note to add the link. Click the little arrow thingy in the upper right corner of your note. Choose Edit Note. A box will appear below your note, but above my comment. Add your link and save the edit. If you need to edit it again (I sometimes have to edit several times *FacePalm*), you need to refresh the page before doing another edit or the edit window won't reappear.

Good luck and again, welcome! *Hug1**Smile**Hug2*
