Pinned toot

Let's play a game, to help some of the newcomers make connections: name subjects and topics that interest you but aren't in your profile, as tags so they are searchable. Then boost this post or repeat its instructions so others know to do the same.

And a heap of other things. Mostly I toot about my cats though.

I boosted three containing hashtagged from the last three days. I boost these not out of shared interest, but because I desire them to collect acquaintances and followers and develop the same or greater fondness for the as I have.

Few newcomers are informed that only hashtagged interests are searchable. Not all think to provide this info in an automated greeting. My pinned toot is an example

Played for first time in fifteen years, at a competitive club. I was grateful for the cheat sheet and introduction, lost one game and won another, both with unappealing tiles. Only fun was playing INIONS to the right of PEATIER (PI/EN/AI/TO/IN/ES) and scoring QUEENED/LOCALE on a Triple-Word-Score for 113. And that's against my husband whom I thrash like a rented mule anyway.
