How did you come to find out about the SS?

No man is an island, and neither is the SS! If you have your own AIO fan site, this is the place to talk about it, and all other AIO fansites!

Sorry you felt that way in the beginning. I always enjoyed reading your posts, and you've been one of my favorite posters since you joined. I enjoy people who are honest, and opinionated, it makes for interesting conversation.

I saw this on the Odyssey Scoop in May, when the SS first came out, but, for some reason, I didn't want to join. Later in June I really got into the ToO, so I decided to join other boards. So, on June 16th, (ironically, the date of the AIO live show I went to) I decided to check this place out, and I've been posting ever since... I kind of regret not joining earlier, as I could have witnessed the beginnings of the SS. But, oh well...

Really? Cool. I thought my opinionated and blunt ways would put me at the end of everyone's 'Favorites' list. That's nice to know although I wouldn't have stopped being so honest if everyone hated it ;) . If you're going to be nice, I guess I'll be nice too and say that I feel the same about your posts. You always have some interesting twist and your wit adds that needed humor.
You're a sweetheart Marybeth--I know you would have.

One day I noticed that there had been a new user to come on, so I commented on his page and welcomed him. Later he pmd me and thanked me for the comment, he also told me about a much better site called the soda shop and his account there :D I promised him I would check it out and later even I made an account there. This kind young man then introduced me to all his friends and since then I have considered you all my second family, a home way from home (:

This young man is named Noah, or as we all know him... Wooton(:
wow, thanks Renae.

ONCE APON A TIME.....(yeah, I know, my story's already boring.) ehem....ONCE APON A TIME I signed up for Odyssey Scoop newsletter, checked my emails. I got an email from OS about the SS...I joined.....um...........THE END!

I like people who are blunt and opinionated. They are interesting, and a good laugh. You're funny and interesting, which is why we all like you!


So, one day, I was on the Odyssey Scoop, checking things like I normally do. And I see something for the SS. So I sign up. Make a few posts, and kinda disappear. Come on once in a while, but that was about it. Then I decided to make more of an effort.
I find that I blend in the background more, but that's okay with me. It's what comes of being the fourth non-admin to join.

I was on the Whitsend website and clicked on the link for "Where Odyssey is Not" about a year ago. I really liked the Odyssey Scoop and was exploring on day in August when I noticed and explored the SS. I joined about 15 minutes later, and the rest is history! :D

Why thank you, God's Little Artist! :D I am truly honored that you found this place through my blog, and I thank you very much for reading. Hmm... this is kind of a pleasant shock for me. I'm constantly surprised and thrilled when I find out about each new reader I didn't know I had. Anyway, I'm glad you enjoyed the blog. :D
