I Wish People Would Write Stories When Starting Groups

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 380 People


    Of all the groups I've created, I've only written a story for one. I'll probably procrastinate terribly, but I plan to change that after having discovered this group.

    It'd Be Helpful

    i'm not the ep police or anything, but it'd be helpful if when you start a group if you explained why you started it or try to talk about it for a few brief seconds, even if it's not much, that way at least we have a general idea of why you created it, especially if it's vaguely...

    They Should

    Yes I wish people who start groups would write stories on it too.  I have ran into a few groups on here with no stories.  Maybe EP should give them a little time to add a story and then if they don't delete the group.  If they want to start the group again then...

    When I read about this group I had to laugh out loud. But ever thought that they made as group so that they could help someone? Say someone made a group about self harming for instance. They may not do it, but they want someone to be able to be given the chance to share...

    I Guess I Don't Get It

    Unless in some cases you are planning to come back and post later, but otherwise I'm not sure why people make groups if they don't want to share the story behind the inspiration for said group. No biggie, cos if I join that group, eventually it will have a story!

    When Someone Starts a Group...

    When someone starts a group usually is because they are going through that and sometime just getting out helps, and when you get comments a lot of them have great advice.  Also remember your story might help someone else going through the same thing.

    My motivation for starting a group was to write about something that didn't fit into an existing group - one gained a lot of members right away and another spent a long time with the only story. It just seems awkward to join a group with no stories that I didn't start myself.

    When one starts a group, there must be a need for that group or so it seems. After taking the necessary actions to create the group, it would take only take a few more minutes to share with us the motivation for bringing the group into existence.
