I’m somewhat conflicted.
Biggest successes? Being more of a bird-in-hand type, rather than two-in-the-bush type. I’ll bet/wager/risk a small part of already disposable income for a potential gain, but never my livelihood, as I’ve seen some do.
Biggest failures? Not “putting myself out there” out the comfort zone more often.
Hence, the conflict.

Cathy967, we expect more effort when starting a thread. Brief OPs with no explanations don’t cut it.
Slow down, create fewer threads, but give more thought and attention into fleshing out the ones you do start.
