Smile GIMP Guide: Double Outlines

Because I have nothing else to do, I decided to make a guide. : D Haha, anyways. I don't even know what these are called, but I named them: Double Outline Texts!
(Don't ask.)
Here's an example.

I know most of you know how to make these, but here's a guide just in case. I don't even know if my way's correct, but hey, this is my way, I hope you find it comfortable- wait okay I'll stop.
Let's go on to the guide!

1. Go onto Gimp!
2. Create a transparent image, the size doesn't matter, as you will be cropping it later after you finish.
3. Type in your text!
4. Layer<Transparency<Alpha to Selection
5. Select<Grow< Two is recommended.
6. Create a new transparent layer.
7. Get the paint bucket icon, click it, and click it onto the text/text space. This is your first outline.
8. Repeat steps 4&5&6.
9. Get a new color and fill the space in.
10. Your new outline is covering the one before, so move the layer down by one, using the arrow in the sidebar. (:
And doneee!
