  • I love the 'newest' stories coming into my inbox. These are from people whose audiences I have joined. In other words, new stories from people who've been on Cowbird for a while. I love how my sense of the 'roundness' of each author grows with each new story!

    But what I find challenging is finding the 'newest' people on Cowbird. I imagine and expect that beauty of story and date of sign-up have very little to do with each other.

    I wish there was a 'Newest' category within 'People' just like there is within 'Stories.' In the meantime, I spend some time each day hunting.
