My Ep Routine

When I first log-in, I check my mail. Usually, there are replies from my circle of friends who haven't replied to a previous message that I sent them or there are fan requests. I either click to go to their profile so I could snoop a bit on the type of person they are by checking their experiences to see if we share something in common or not, then I check their recent stories if there are any, I make a comment on what I thought about their story and check out a few more, if there's more hence making more comments. When and if I like their profile, their stories, and experiences, I'll accept them as a friend. If they're perverted in a major way or something like that with no moral compass, I won't be accepting their friend request or accept them as part of my circle.

I set my update of what I'm doing or where I'm at (a place) in life or on the road. I'll also set my mood and explain why I'm feeling like that. It's just something I've done since joining this site. And I've come to see that some people do care about me here. So, I want to keep them in the loop.

Then, I check the Groups tab, click on 'What's New' and from there, join the experience groups that I find relate to me and my life at the present or past time. Sometimes I'd write stories immediately and other times I don't. Honestly, it depends on whether I feel like writing stories to them and if I feel it in me to explain why I joined the group or I'd start to write it out but wind up saving it in my Drafts.

After doing that, I head back to my profile, check my Recent Circle Activity, check the stories my friends recently posted, make comments, and then explore more of EP. Sometimes I'd try to get into writing by viewing other of my favorite websites or I'd think about my life right now to get for experiences. From there, I get inspiration for stories, and if I feel like writing, I'll do it but if I don't feel like it, I won't.

Other than that, I check on my friends by sending them PMs or Whiteboard Comments or comments through stories. Other times if I'm in a playful mood, I'll send my friends gestures. Sometimes I reach out to strangers based on their mood or their experiences. It's just easy to make friends by sharing experiences. Other times I share personal experiences in the Ask Experience section, too.

That is basically my EP routine in a nutshell.

Well, I've been here on EP for what's been like three years and when you enjoy the site as much as I do, it's hard not to get bored with it. But it's good to get out and explore it.

Lol me too. Never knew that existed...where have i been?? bf.

Tks for pointing out some features I've not explored! I'll have to alter my routine. Haven't ever clicked on Groups Tab - What's new! Sometimes ya learn the basics and stop the exporation!<br />
