Good (insert time of day you're reading this), my friend! I actually don't remember what prompted me to write something on networking, I think I was coming out of work one day and heard someone talking about it. If this is what happened, let's assume that everything they said was wrong. I say this because [...]
Many people post after their first run, the first day of a diet, or when they are writing a song, and they finish one (the first in maybe six months). I'm happy that you did it, I mean that.
