Thanks, this is really helpful and great. Volunteering is definitely something I want to do, now if only this stupid pandemic would end so I can be around other people!
I gave out a bonus point each time someone corrected my spelling, which is admittedly terrifyingly bad, and hopefully proved by example that perfection wasn’t the point of writing, effectively advocating for one’s own ideas is.
