Dunno! Maybe since summer started everyone's been busy vacationing?

I haven't been super active for a while, but I do at least check the board once a day.

THe facebook group started a few months ago, maybe? Or maybe a little longer... Here is the link but I am clueless about how you join - guessing if you click this link you'll have the option to 'request' access?

My closest "friends" from this PR jumped ship a long time ago for various reasons... I've been keeping up with them on FB. I'm trying to spend less time on the computer these days, and when I'm on JM, am mostly checking in with my new DDC. Hope all of you are doing great!

This kind of sucks for me. It seemed like the it got slow here all the sudden. This was the only group of people I talk to online and have known a lot since pregnancy, but I am not on Facebook. Maybe I'll have to setup an account.

I'm not on the facebook group either, or even have any other JM mommies friended, but there's a reason for that. I like to keep my life private and just have actual friends and family on there. And considering how much privacy and drama issues we've had in the past, I think I'll keep it that way.

Hope we get some more posting going soon. Maybe I'll start up some new topics or something.

I just haven't really had time to post much. Right now, I mainly keep up with Grant's PR and that is it.

Aww, Kristi, I miss seeing posts from you! My problem is we don't have a home computer that works right, only DH's work laptop which I'm not supposed to use. So all my Internet use right now is done from my iPhone. FB has a great app, JM sucks for phone use. I have about a dozen or so JM mommies as friends on FB & with JM being so dead I just gave up checking in here. I felt like I made a pretty good push a couple months back to get the board moving, but very few people responded & most were people I have as FB friends. One suggestion if you're leery about FB: u could just create a FB account w/ a fake name & only add JM mommies. Just a thought.

I miss JM, but it hardly ever works for me. It takes forever to check just a couple of threads, and then half the time if I take time to post a response the response disappears into the cyber abyss. I love the community I found here so many years ago, but I am baffled by the fact that technologically speaking, JM hasn't changed much since the day I joined with my first account, eight or so years ago! It isn't keeping up, and the quality is suffering for that. I only have so many hours in a day, I can't spend them waiting for archaic message boards to load, or not load, or to load errors etc. I have more important things to do like fingerpaint, make a huge mess baking brownies (then cleaning up said mess) going to nursing school. Other forms of communication better fit my needs and take less time, are easier to use, and fit with today's technology.

So that is why I don't post anymore. I love JM, but I'm not sure if I'll be back. And as was said before, several attempts were made in the past months to get this board going again, and there was little response.

I didn't know there was an FB group either and that link doesn't work for me? I have been busy having a baby. I'd like to get this place going again

I've been without internet since we moved. Just got it back today. But most of my web access is done on a small screen and this site is dang near impossible to navigate without a mobile-friendly version or an app.

Aside from that, I do feel more comfortable on Facebook than I do on here. The semi-anonymous nature of a public forum was easier for me when I was a terrified 22-year-old pregnant chick looking for advice. Four years later, I've grown uneasy with 1) the idea that anybody can read this, and 2) the idea that someone in this group could be some random pedo pretending to be a preschooler mom just for giggles. (I don't suspect that anyone here is a troll, but you get my point.) Facebook provides a more "real" forum for communication, where I can see that a person is likely who they say they are and I know that information I share is somewhat more secure.
It's not that I think JM is bad. I don't. It just doesn't serve the purpose it used to for me.

So, I'm around. I stop in here once in a while. Probably a little more often now that I have my computer online again.
