Getting Good Penpals, a Slowly Users Guide

This has been posted and recognized as a valuable resource at Reddit for maybe almost two months now.

After sitting in my Blog editor for almost 30 days, I decided to publish it -- in Two pages, with a final Part 3 coming soon dealing with the loaded question of "Adding friends via Slowly IDs".

Hope you enjoy reading this, a more detailed, illustrated and carefully written version of my original Reddit forum post.

Hello friends and thank you for offering the service. Koyu Space seems a nice instance, and I have chosen it for my new account.

This one, which will be focused on my love and interest in Writing, Reading, and corresponding with interesting people from all over the world.

are wonderful, and I am happy to have been using the app to find interesting, intelligent and sensitive people all over the World to correspond with.

I am starting a new personal Blog, to post some of my own letters to friends, stripped of any personal information to protect their privacy.

And I am also active in the Reddit sub for the Slowly app community, where there's a lot of good information and like minded people. 😃

Hope to chat with anyone interested.
