Find some friends, Give a rating

So you are new to the neighborhood, it's time to get out and meet some friends. I would start by looking at the topics that interest you under Practices. Take a peek at the articles, blogs and discussions that are going on. What's trending in those practice areas? Who's talking about it? Do you have a comment or opinion that you would like to add? These are questions that we all ask when we are new on the block. Don't be shy. Give a rating or leave a comment to the content that interest you. Once you get the hang of that, start adding some new friends to your network. I'm surprised how fast my network has grown and I look forward to engaging with new people.
