1. Talk about stuff you do NOT want to discuss with relatives, colleagues, or friends.
2. Have someone to chat with... when people around you won't listen.
3. Share tips and useful info with other people going through a rough patch.
Technically, Aidpage is an online social network where you can post messages and pictures and connect with others - as you would do on Facebook.
But Aidpage is for connecting to NEW people. And Aidpage is for discussing things you wouldn't talk about on Facebook - like health and money problems, for example.
What NOT to do on Aidpage...
1. Do NOT ask directly for money.
It just doesn't work well - it looks like begging. Let others decide how they may want to help you.
2. Do NOT post your EMAIL address, PHONE number, or STREET address.
People can contact you through Aidpage. You will receive a notification from Aidpage when someone replies to you on Aidpage. Once you give your email, phone, or home address to strangers, you cannot stop them from sending you scam emails, calling you, or sending you letters. For more personal matters, use the one-to-one messaging here on Aidpage - no need to disclose your personal email address to anyone!
A few more tips...
1. SPEAK OUT
Write about whatever is on your heart and mind. Write about problems and worries. Or, tell success stories - about overcoming problems.
2. BE PERSISTENT
You may have already posted something - a comment, a question, or a short note. Post more. You may not be ready to write today - no problem. Come back tomorrow - write more about yourself, make new posts, and insert pictures in your posts. Come back often - and post something. The more you write and post pictures - the more people would be willing to write back to you. Just writing about your problems will make you feel better. Discussing problems is the first step to resolving them.
3. PAY ATTENTION TO OTHER PEOPLE
This is the purpose of Aidpage - to get people pay attention to each other. Do your part. Read what others have posted. Reply to them. That's how people will start paying attention to you.
4. USE COMMON SENSE
On Aidpage, speak and act with the same common sense you would use when meeting new people in a public place.
5. COME BACK...!
Don't forget to visit often and post updates on Aidpage. Success or not, sharing your stories would be of help to someone else going through similar stuff. Also, you'll only start truly appreciating Aidpage after becoming a regular here.
