Metatalktail Hour: Great find!

Good Saturday evening, MetaFilter! This week, veggieboy says: "Inspired by some very old recipes my mom unearthed and by having watched way too much Antiques Roadshow, I’d love to hear about people’s best “finds.” Doesn’t matter whether the value is based on sentiment, money or amusement."

What's your Immigrant story?

The antidote to despair is hope. Hope is the heart of migration. I'd love it if we can share the stories of migration that brought us to where we are, wherever that may be. These stories are important. They are ours, our heritage. For the biggest umbrella that "our" can encompass. [more inside]

MetaHelpfulNewPostsAdvice

Earlier today in a thread, there was a comment from Quackles:
“I know this is slightly off-topic, but as someone who hasn't made a post on MetaFilter yet, do you have any advice on what to consider, uh... worthy? I suspect I am beset by the same anxiousness.”
I know that we have the FAQ (lots of helpful advice in there), but I thought it'd be nice to just have a place to discuss how to ease into making a first post. People can share their tips, their suggestions, their own experiences making a post, finding out it was a double, or how some posts just don't fly and how some just take off into weird and wonderful places. General MetaHelpfulness with putting something out there for the community to engage with. Please share if you feel so inclined.

The new owners of the add-on at the time, SimilarWeb, offer products including “Market Solutions To See All Your Competitors’ Traffic.” [more inside]
