As mentioned in my very first post, I discovered this platform built-into Standard Notes rather late, and since having got into, used to generally glance at the list of other authors that the homepage links to. It was a bit intriguing (though not particular) not to find mine among the recent even after three weeks. Considering it to be probably getting updated monthly, or based on a few other criteria like regular posting or the word counts and such I refrained from seeing it on a daily basis. --// Day before, I just happened to visit the settings part after the initial setup, and casually unchecked to hide bio, that was turned on with the consideration of it being not so important to draw others.

Logic works in learning things if you keep an eye on what the last step did, "Oh! if This, then That approach", which makes it easier to adapt.

Often, learning from mistakes has better impact than getting it right by fluke in the first go, like the right word on "Wordle" game in the very first guess, that wins the game no doubt, but leaves out the joy of learning to solve, thinking hard...
