You may be wondering, what should I say in my first thread? or when should I make my first thread? or just how should I proceed? Having your thoughts and materials ready first will help you to breeze through the process pretty quickly.
Before you even gather your thoughts, it's best to scan other journey threads in your age group or experience level. What kind of questions were asked? Were some told that they were missing something or posted too soon? Get some idea of the questions you want answered before you start your own preparation.
Another source of information is the Library Central of Beard Growing where lots of information there could help you formulate your thoughts. You might scan that library to get more ideas about your upcoming beard journey.
