I realize that I have been slacking lately. I have reasons for my lack of activity, but I don't want to come off as if I'm making excuses so I'll spare you all. Prior to Angie and Ro's decision today, I had made a decision to make more of an effort to be a good host here, so ...
I'm here. I'll be active. We'll get this board rocking again but it has to be a team effort. It's not solely the hosts' responsibility to post topics, so if you think of stuff, post it!
Thanks for posting this. I feel like there's only a few of us who make frequent posts. Then they are viewed a billion times, but most people do not respond to them. I understand that we have LOTS of people who have admitted that they lurk on their phones, but do not reply to posts and that has to stop!
If people want this board to be active then there needs to be effort. I understand that a lot of us have each other on FB so we can keep up there, but it is nice to come here and post things that we don't post on FB.
I check in daily here, but feel like there's lots of people from our board that do not make any effort to post and that is annoying and frustrating to me. Why come and read the posts, but not respond or post new ones?
I'm glad you are not stepping down. And for the record, I think you do a great job, considering all the other JM stuff you do.
The facebook thing ticks me off. LOL. I don't do FB. I think it causes more bad than good, so I never get on. So, for me, this board is a lot more fun to keep up with our babies, and not with every other detail of someone's life. So, I hope the FB posters will continue to come here!

Well put Mandy.
I am guilty of not being on here lately but will make more of an effort. I think all of you ladies have made a great effort and it is sad to see two stepping down.I missed whatever comment was made but I hope that it was not soley because of that because you ladies have done an awesome job keeping this board going for as long as it has and as active as it is. Never-the-less, I hope you both get to do what you need to but that you also dont be stangers :-)
I think there is incredible value in having three active hosts on a board, you three have done a great job at keeping us going. From experience in three other PRs squashing us down into a yearly PR really kills it, really hope it doesn't happen to us, also. I'm guilty of reading and not posting and not consistently replying. School plus my Master's is eating up my computer time, nevermind the five kids lol! And from experience its hard not to take it personally when you post and everyone looks but nobody replies, but don't take it personally!
Everyone has an interesting perspective to offer, and I don't think we should be afraid to offer opinions and share our yays and woes.
Thank you to our incredible hosts past and present!
