Most posts I come across on Cake are about Cake itself, which isn't very reassuring. (And I contributed to that proportion myself.)
I completely 2999% respectfully disagree.
Most of the conversations and posts that I’ve noticed over the past six weeks that I’ve been here have been on everything but Cake. There’s a 50+ long thread that @Chris started over the weekend on disinformation and @vegasphotog just started an interesting conversation on the ways you could end up dead in Medieval Times.
Conversation starting involves taking risks. I started one on solving a math problem(!) and it resulted in a great conversation that veered into preconceptions and mental shortcuts that we use to navigate life. I’ve started multiple conversations on the writing process that have all fizzled and died. That’s the joy and the challenge of Cake.
Take a risk, invest some of your time and stay awhile.
