Spotlight threads

Ok, girls, I think it's time to get to know each other better! We will be doing spotlight threads on individual members (only if you want to participate!).

How it works is several times a week, we will post a thread to highlight an individual and we can all ask that person any questions we have to get to know her better and she can take her time and post as much or as little as she wants. For example, we can ask how she met her significant other, what her favorite hobbies are, what her plans are for this birth, etc...

Who's in??

Just comment below if you'd like to be spotlighted and I'll write up a little schedule so you know when it will be your turn so you can plan on a little more computer time those days to answer your questions. :smile::x

I am interested as long as I don't have to give my real name or where I live! Hope you understand.

Zjande, I know, it makes me sad! One of my best friends (that I met in my last DDC!) is the leader for the Feb 2015 group and she said it is very quiet there, too. :(

Ok yes, but could we please have at least first names, referring to people by only a handle makes me feel like a 14 year old on dial up to a local BBS. ;o)

Why do you feel unsafe sharing name and place, are you planning uc, or have stalking relatives?

Not sure what planning uc means? I don't have to be apart of the spotlight. Keeping my name and location to myself is my personal preference. Everyone else is free to share this info I just choose not to.

I am one of the people who feel more comfortable hiding my identity. Some of us may have unusual first names that can easily be recognized and a lot of people in my social/family circle probably visit MDC.

I am even hesitant to say much about my life for that reason. I like coming here and talking about intimate things in private, especially at the beginning, before I had announced my BFP to anyone.

Oh, also, my latest U/S told us that my new due date is in the first week of January...
I hope you guys are ok with me hanging out here still...

I really would like to still give birth in December, for weird personal reasons. I have some very amazing friends who are late December babies and I love the idea of my kid arriving around that time, but that's silly.

The January Due Date Club (which I am a member of) is pretty quiet, more quiet than this one.

I'm in, sounds fun!

Hope the site gets easier to use soon, it's hard to have to sign in every time I want to come here. I get email updates with a direct link from the other groups I'm in on mothering, anyone know why can't I get them from this one?

I am very easily discoverable and just don't post anything I wouldn't say publicly.

Spotlight Thread Calendar!!! *~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~

We will start next week and post a new member for spotlighting every Tuesday and every Saturday. We can ask any questions of that member that we would like to know and they will have several days to answer as much as they like and feel comfortable with answering.

You do not have to post any personal into (like name or location) that you are not comfortable with! We just want to get to know each other. :) Just participate as much or as little as you like.
