A humble advice to the new members.This post is specifically to the new members who have joined the ISC or are in the process of joining this educational site and will find this post ready to welcome them. This is basically a knowledge sharing educational site where you can, if you so desire, learn things from scratch. You might be possessing a good academic background but here you can learn how to write things in a particular format, like an impressive post or an article or a job post or a school addition to the existing database or adding courses to an already existing college or school or uploading an exam question paper or answering a query of a member etc. So there are many opportunities to learn structured writing here. This experience will be useful to the new members when they want to work in major blog sites like Wordpress or Hubpages or Blogger or any site like that.
Another interesting thing about this site is that there is a very encouraging atmosphere for the new members here and many members and Editors of the site are always eager to answer their queries related to the understanding of the working of this site.
My advice to the new members is that they can stay here for a long time and whenever they get some time out of their busy study schedule or workplace life they should sharpen their skills of writing in any of the sections depending upon the individual interest. By giving a small time per week one can slowly make a presence here in many activities and sometimes when one feels to participate there are ample opportunities to be a part of contests that are announced from time to time. For example, one contest for writing micro tale (75 words only) is ongoing and so many small stories have already been submitted by the members. Just have a look and you may find yourself jotting down a few words to produce a micro tale.
When you get time please explore the full potential of this site and believe me there is something for everyone here. All the best!
