A little confused

I am new to Book Likes so I am not completely sure how all this works. I was referred from a friend on Goodreads and have been a long time member. I am just finding out about this site and others too. I guess you can say I was looking for other ways to connect with people that love to read. If there are any tips that I need to know please feel free to let me know. I am also wondering how this giveaway works. I have been unable to enter any because it wants me to do all this stuff that is required to enter, but I have done all the stuff, I think?? That is why I am a little confused at the moment. Hopefully I will get the hang of it soon.
