Why is this board so slow? October and November DDC's have close to 1,000 more posts than us.

Where is everyone???

We've always been a smaller DDC.

We also have a lot of members who read but don't post or who make their own threads but don't/rarely post on anyone else's, all of which makes having conversations a little tricky.

I am always around! But I read from my phone and it's such a pain in the butt to post from there. I'm on my computer for a bit today though. We should liven things up somehow!

If you've got any ideas, you're more than welcome to give it a shot. I'm kind of at a loss these days.

Im one of the readers that only sometimes posts and rarely starts threads. I have my phone to use and it's more annoying to use it to post. I've been on this ddc since the beginning usually many times a day. Maybe I need to amp up my responses.

I am here. Work has picked up a bit for me, and I may not be on here as much as I used to, but will still be checking and posting here and spending some time time everyday.

I think we all have lives and have kids on summer break and are too busy. I wouldn't worry about it. We are all here I can see, just not as "hen like" like the other boards.

My work life sucks for now, but I can post when I can
I think it's easier to post when you don't feel so crappy! Weren't there several months where we were #1?

We were #2 or 3 once, I believe, but October hadn't entered that month and November, December, etc. weren't up yet IIRC.

It is normal for activity to decline as things move forward - we lose some mamas because there are always a few pregnancy losses early on, some people join and then lose interest or forget to come back after awhile and the fact that we're now into summer vacation explains part of it too. I'm anticipating a bit of a bump next month when we're all commiserating how uncomfortable we are, everyone has started their maternity leave from work (if applicable) and babies start making their entrances.

I hope so, anyway. I think we've got a pretty fabulous group and would love to see more activity again.

I try to post as much as I can! If I don't have time I read threads, then come back to them when I have time.

I notice that our posts get a LOT of views, but then not many responses. We have some secret fans out there or something

I wish I could post more, because I have lots of things I'd like to share and say. It's difficult because my kids keep me so busy. I start posts and sometimes never get to finish them with all the interruptions around here! I guess it just goes with the territory.
