Wow, I just checked my join date. It was February 24th, 2014. That's exactly 7 years and 1 day ago! Permies has been with me from when my son was just 4 months old, to when I was trying to pick a tree for his first birthday, to my soul searching as to whether we should have a second child (yes, we did, and yes, she's awesome! Though it certainly was a larger trial than we were expecting). A big thanks to everyone here at permies for being such a huge part of my life!

It both encourages other people to try their own stuff, and check with others if that's too crazy or if that might actually work. It gave me confidence in my own projects, and also authority to defend my ideas, knowing that other people have already done something similiar with success.
Oh, I always love to share the little knowledge I possess, and here it is welcomed.

The idea culture of Permies is awesome. “Crazy” ideas are the most innovative, and the acceptance of the potential value of any and all ideas, whatsoever is what makes Permies great. It’s helped me to be certain that if it works in my head, it’s worth giving a shot, no matter what anyone else says.
