Yes, the title 'I'm a newbie' is often seen here. When you see a blog title like this, you know it's the first blog by a new member, or a newcomer.  

'I'm a newbie' may mean I'm new or a stranger to MyEC, and if I make some mistakes, don't laugh at me.

In fact, it doesn't matter if you're a newbie, or a rookie. We'll read and even comment on your blog no matter whether you're a novice, or a neophyte. And, you don't need to be sorry for the mistakes since even advanced learners here make mistakes, too. 

You may be a beginner, a new/fresh/green hand, or a fledgling, you should be proud of youself since you've written a blog in English, which isn't your first language or mother tongue. 

So, you don't need to let us know you're just an English learner. Just write something as if you were a veteran, an old hand/stager, an experienced, skilled, seasoned, salted or expert writer. 

Did you notice the words that mean the same thing:

newbie - newcomer - rookie - novice - neophyte - beginner - new/fresh/green hand - fledgling - learner

advanced - veteran - old hand/stager - experienced - skilled - seasoned - salted - expert
