Hi Karen. I'm glad you're here too. You've really livened things up on Social.
You know, some people might be suspicious because of all the name-changing, but there may be other factors at work. I'm just generally slow to get to know newcomers. I have to see someone's name around for a while, and read their posts for a while, until I even feel comfortable posting to them. Otherwise I just don't feel I have much to say. I probably got to know you faster than normal. I think that's because you post quite a bit. You'll be an oldbie in no time.
Or.. could it be you're discounting the positive? I tend to feel unwelcome if I don't get 100% acceptance. Once I had to make a list of posters that I thought liked me, ones I thought didn't like me, and ones that I thought were neutral. The numbers didn't support my feeling of rejection.
Just some ideas. You might be a lot more welcome than you think.
