I definitely need some irl friends. But online friends would be nice too. In addition to invisible, I also feel isolated and alone. It sucks.

I know the feeling. And also to any other mamas feeling the same. Anyone looking to chat, just pm me; my inbox is always open
I do too! Only in my case there are no AP moms close by -- they all live in wealthier neighborhoods that we can't afford or in neighborhoods that we wouldn't feel safe in (and still probably couldn't afford, ironically, since Berkeley is not only expensive but also high crime, lol).

I felt like this many times, but it got a little better. Now, there are a few people who notice, but I don't post as much as I did a few years ago. I remember giving my opinion or advice on something I knew about, and being totally ignored. I don't think it's on purpose, though.
The thing is, Mothering forums is so huge that it is way easy to fall between the cracks. I guess this thread is a sort of "fall between the cracks people" thread.
This fits me perfectly!
I like to put a positive spin on the threads I've killed. I take it as my reply was so perfectly written and every argument so eloquently worded that no one else felt the need to contribute and left my post there in all it's glory.
Lol that must be exactly it we are all simply too eloquent! Talk about making lemonade with a handful of lemons, you just cheered me right up!
