I am following the suggestions several people gave me on how to get involved in DW. I am checking out people linked from the comments to that post and some other posts I made. Reading some of their entries commenting on those entries I find some interesting and marking them as being in my circle. Then I follow some more links from their posts and do the whole thing again recursively.

But I feel uneasy commenting on blogs of total strangers and marking people quite randomly. Why them and not some others from the other 6 billion out there?
I don't know them personally. I don't even know them online. Maybe I read a few lines they wrote, but then what?
That does not really give me any right to just push my unwanted words on them.

I have my own blog elsewhere where I have been writing for 3 years or so but that was strictly professional. I was commenting on other peoples blogs but those were professional entries as well.

I guess I am uneasy with getting too personal with total strangers.

I guess, I have not yet figured out how to use DW.

I know how to post to my account, how to join a community and how to post to that community but I don't know why?

I mean I don't see a point in writing - especially asking questions - if there is no one reading it. So how can I get people read my entries? I tried to look for some ideas, maybe a dw_community that deals with this question but I could not find one. I found the list of official DreamWidth communities but the closest I found to what I am looking for was
[site community profile] dw_community_promo and maybe [site community profile] dw_nifty but neither is really what I want.

Maybe the problem is that I don't know anyone here. Well I know [personal profile] csjewell who invited me
here and I exchanged 2 e-mails with [personal profile] damned_colonial but I don't think I know anyone else here.

So how do I get knowing others here?

Once I tried to start writing on LiveJournal but have not managed to post the second note. I maintain a web site of my own at with a blog there that I am using.

So the reason I am trying to write here too is that I am trying to build a diverse community around Padre, the Perl IDE and I was told this might be one of the best places
to learn from.
