Emily, at the end of your introduction, at the right of this page, you wrote "Let's be friends." Could you write about what you were thinking and feeling when you wrote that? What were you inviting people to do? What did you see yourself doing in response? Do you still feel the same way about it as you did when you first wrote it?
Great questions and they provoke a lot of thought! I will write a blog post about this in a couple of days. :)
