the number of people that view the forums on this website is unreal. everytime i log on there are atleast 300-500 people the same section at the same time as me, but this board moves soooooo slow compared to another one i'm active on. i can only assume its because so many mamas are lurkers! its so much more fun when you have everyone contributing so stop reading and start posting!!

I've noticed that. The original check-in thread is SUPER long but only like 10-15 people participate regularly.

I post a lot, but sometimes I just read for advice or pop on and off throughout the day without a whole lot of time to type. But if you see me logged in, I'm here! Now that both kids nap well I have been on a lot more!

i was a serial lurker of these forums for a loong time before i finally made an account. so much great information and so many amazing mamas, i didnt need to post anything! just sit back and read.. but i need interaction with more mommas and with the numbers of people simply "viewing" threads.. there should be tons more posts

I post sometimes. Usually, it is when I have a question, or I see something that I feel I can help with.

But I'm a huge introvert (unless I'm at work) and even have problems putting myself forward in online groups. I'm sure there are others like me as well. (At least I hope so. LOL)

Haha... I am a quiet person by nature, so I tend to be as quiet on boards I visit as I am in person. I chime i if I feel I have something worthwhile to contribute.

Well, I'm not pregnant so I don't feel I should really be posting all over the pregnancy boards. LOL But I do love lurking!

I like to think it moves more slowly because the responses are so thoughtful--they take more time to compose

I only tend to post when I think I can contribute something to the convo. Here lately I've been posting just to be supportive of people I come across. My forum experience is this, read a lot, post a little, and then say to DH "I was reading on MDC and...." We don't have any littles yet, so it gives us some good things to think about.

Hi! I just rejoined the community after not being on here for a few years. Found out last week that I have a happy surprise on the way, either late June or early July. I forgot how much I missed reading the boards.

Mama to my 4-year-old lil' man and with a new little one on the way.

I often start to reply and then cancel, because I decide either my post is redundant, or it sounds cranky and rude...because as pregnancy advances, I do get cranky

I am like many of the PPs. I lurk daily, but only post if I have something to add. I was a lurker for about 6 months (in the inferitily forum) before I actually joined. I like to get a feel for the people before I jump in.
