Special Interest/Hyperfixation Sharing Pond


Hey there! Here is a new sharing pond to fill out!

What is a Sharing Pond? Rather than being asked questions or tagged in a post, you can fill out a sharing pond if you choose to! No need to wait for someone to ask or tag you! (Thank you @archie for the name! Use the name "sharing pond" if you’d like to make something similar based on this format!)


  • When you fill this out, copy/paste this into a new post. Feel free to ignore/delete any prompts you don’t want to answer.
  • If you don’t answer all of the prompts, I would appreciate you linking back to the original post so others can view the full collection of prompts. (It might be nice to do that either way, so people aren’t required to delete your answers, but that is up to you.)
  • If you’d like, tag your post as “interest sharing pond” (and “sharing pond” more generally) so others can see it.
