It doesn't look like a chatting-type board, but more of a resources thing. I've been on too many WAHM resource kind of boards and they're all about party-type biz's spamming to get more down-line than a place where WAHM's can give each other support for the issues we deal with

No, no . . . it isn't a resource only board, it just had not been posted to yet. I went ahead and posted the first thread in the main WAHM WELL forum.

The discussion will stay under the WAHM Well forum (as we do here in Diapering) and the Resources will go under the SubForums for perusing as mommas look to becoming WAHMs, or WAHMs need tips, resources - or start up stuff. Right now there is a thread going in one of the Resource Subforums but we'll get it into the main discussion forum in the morning. There isn't a moderator set up right now to do it as it just went up today.

I'm sure there will be guidelines with regards to SPAMMING - we want it to be RESOURCEFUL and not a place for people to advertise their wares, etc. . .

It truly is meant to DISCUSS business, not to GENERATE business. So please get on over there and be active with your questions - and if you are a WAHM, please contribute by helping out another WAHM with answers.

Oh, I get it now!! With no posts in there, it looked like there were just the 2 subforums, but no regular posting.

So sorry for being a grump! I'm very hormonal

You aren't a grump - heck, I'm hormonal too. I keep finding myself needing to cry and then end up giggling halfway through when my husband gives me that look that says, "I want to seem as though I care, but what the freak is going on?!"

Please . . . don't think the forum is only for WAHMs . . . it is for those that are interested in being WAHMs - it is for those that just want to read about the struggles/victories/questions WAHMs ask. It is for you to suggest to WAHMs . . . really spend some time visiting and reading up. There is an intro thread now that is interesting to read - a bit of background.

Thanx Heather, I am very excited about it now, I've really wanted a forum like that since I became a wahm

LOL at your DH, I'm driving mine lol! He doesn't like it when I hide up here, but I think this weekend he's glad to be out of my way

Is it a forum for DIAPER WAHMs or just WAHMs? My DH and I run a business from our home, but it has nothing to do w/ diapers. Is this forum going to be a place where we discuss how we manage our time, and how we get deadlines done w/ kids around all of the time And also a place to vent frustration over not having enough time to get it all done? I don't want to intrude if it is only for DIAPER WAHMs

Thanks!

Free Thinker - it is for ALL WAHMs. This is why it wasn't hosted in Diapering. We have it in NFL for that reason - so other WAHMs would come. And there are already some over there introducing - so make yourself known.

LaLa is going to moderate those boards. I can't think of a better moderator to do it! She works with WAHMs in her store on a daily basis and is a WAHM herself! Three cheers for LaLa!
