Being new to Newsvine it my understanding one must pass through the Greenhouse. I seeded an article and went to the Greenhouse to see if I could find it and see what it looked like. What an incredible surprise I had when I was scanning through the articles. Sadly, I never did see my article. I simply ran out of patience before arriving there. I did finally come upon an another individual’s first article and was compelled to discuss my Greenhouse visit with him. I will share that discussion here and hope that it will serve to build resolve in other new arrivals and let them know there are really posts that are not advertising. By the way, please comment on and befriend my newfound friend Darley Hillman who can be reached at EJOKAEI. The only thing I really know about him is that he is cheerful and likes cricket, but I am certain he is a nice guy.

I cannot tell you how happy I was to find your post after a lot of time looking though the Greenhouse to see what my first post looked like. In the process of getting to your post I must have read 10,000 articles about how to stop snoring, pick up girls, buy adult toys in Australia, growing hair, removing body fat, etc. I began to think the Greenhouse was simply a clearinghouse for junk mail and advertising. A place where you could catch up if you were concerned that the spammers lost your address and missed sending you something.
Although I have not found my first post I am glad I did not lose faith and found yours. I might add that yours appear to be a genuine Greenhouse entry so far. It was nice to see someone advocating cheerfulness and cricket vice offering a car loan or telling me where I can buy flowers in Penang.
I know nothing about cricket, but I am a fan of cheerfulness so we have at least one thing in common. Hardly a basis for a really strong friendship, but better than the entry offering ways to Conceive Naturally With Holistic Fertility Boosters. As such I am sending a friend request.
Since we both appear to be new, friendless and awaiting removal from the Greenhouse I will vote on your article and send a friend request. Guess new folks must stand together.
Look forward to hearing from you. May your trip through the Greenhouse be short and enjoyable. If you are looking for acne cream or for a janitorial service in Omaha, Nebraska you should be able to find it there.
Oh yes, I forgot to tell you I am from the US. I am going to guess that you are not. The hint was that there are only four people in this country who are familiar with cricket. I know three of them and the other one's name is not Darley. In fact I don't know if we even have anyone name Darley in this country. Are you sure iit isn't Daryl and you typed it wrong. Never mind, it doesn't really matter.
