Hey Ladies,

I have noticed (and so have some of our participants) that there have been fewer and fewer people participating in the SOTW threads. I know that it's hard to remember, and I'd be happy to post more reminders about it if that would help.

What do you guys suggest we do? Do you think we should just give up on it? Keep trucking along and hope more people chime in?

I'd like all of your honest opinions here.... this is your board and I want to make sure we are doing things that make you all excited and happy to be here.

Thanks for your input!!

I'm with Becks. I've been so busy that I haven't been posting here or anywhere as much lately. Once the holidays are over, I'm sure I'll be back- can't speak for everyone. Is it an option to maybe postpone it until after the New Year?

I enjoy it but I just didn't have time since I went back to school. I think now I can participate more since I kinda have the swing of things and my schedule next semester is much easier. I also sometimes forget to look at the stickies.

I definitely agree we need to do something different with the SOTW, but I'm not exactly sure what. Maybe like the other ladies mentioned people are busy this time of year.... I was the SOTW last week and was disappointed not too many people responded to the thread

I really love the SOTW thread and have been reading it every week (if not every day). I'm really enjoying getting to know everyone better. But I agree with everyone that the responses have been dropping off over the past several weeks. Maybe more reminders would help and maybe more people will participate in the new year after the holidays.

That would definitely help cause like I mentioned above, I just simply forget to look at the stickies sometimes because a lot of them are mostly Board messages, I forget about it but I feel horrible when I do. =(

Alright, well this week is already in full swing. So, we'll for sure be keeping that up. I'm gonna msg whoever is on for the week after Christmas (we already had given SOTW a break for next week) and see if they will reschedule.

I'll be sure to post more reminders... I just didn't want to seem like I was nagging you all or pestering. But I'll do it!

I love the SOTW thread as well, and am glad you ladies are still on board to keep it going!!!
