I am a member of a bunch of on-line communities. Most I rarely visit. There are a few that I am obsessively addicted to. I love these places & blog stalk people from them. I feel like I have made great friends. What are these site you ask? I will tell you.
One of the places I have posted the longest is the old Babycenter. While there I usually hang out on the Bargain Hunters board. Sadly the place is set to blow up Dec. 14 for the new Babycenter format. I am not loving it so much so I have been searching for a new home. First I tried the new Bargain Hunters board at yuku. It just didn't fit. I then checked Syber Moms. It is a great forum to blow off steam but I don't see a whole lot of support. I was digging Cafe Mom for a while but the format just isn't what I am looking for. I love Ravelry but it isn't really a parenting or support forum. It is my crafty outlet though.
So I have finally found my new home. A great friend of mine from the March 05 babycenter board started her own forum. It was designed as a refuge from pregnancy.org were she used to be a host & a lot of shit went down. Where is this magical place? It is called the Mamas. OMG I love it. It has most of the features of the old Babycenter without censorship. The posters rock & Jenn & Jamie do a great job running it. Come on over & visit us. New posters are always welcomed.
