    Maybe it's the lull after the summer weddings and early fall weddings?

    I agree. It seems to be slower when I need something to help me procrastinate :-/

    it seems like almost everyone has gotten married and all of a sudden there are less questions!  I have started going to the nest board more these days - because I don't always have something to contribute here anymore!

    yah I'm pretty sure its because everyone got married or are about it! I've been lurking on the nest boards these days, they are lots of fun.

    But I don't want babies - isn't that the main purpose of the Nest?

    No, that's The Bump. The Nest is mostly NWR stuff similar to what you see on here, general social chit chat, & recommendatins for stuff (restaurants, salons, fashion advice, hobbies, cooking, etc.)

    that's the main purpose the Bump - the nest is full of people who don't want babies too!  (and then people who aren't ready to have them yet, etc)

    The Whats Cooking board is the place to be if you enjoy cooking. I am totally addicted to it, and I DEF do NOT want babies. But sometimes seeing peoples siggy pics with their babies gets to me sometimes haha

    does anyone here post on the nest boards?  it took me forever to post here even after lurking for a while.  haha i'm so lame but it feels like walking into a crowded room where you don't know anyone!  where do i start so that i don't get flamed?  are the local girls as nice over there as they are here?

    Redhead, the local girls are nice. I know quite a few of them in real life through Blair. Just go say hi...they don't bite!

    A lot of the girls over there are just the previous generations of regulars from over here. It's essentially like over here, minus the wedding-related things.I post on both boards daily. They're nice, I promise; just lurk for a while (like you probably did over here before you started posting) & you'll get a feel for the group.

    The nest is interesting - i've posted on there some but it looks weird because it counts your number of posts - i don't want to be a newbie again!  I also think it's slow right now becuase there's a lot of people getting married and it's crunch time for them.  the lack of melissa has hurt too!

    okay so wait. did we officially loose melissa and bridget? did they say goodbye and i missed it which is highly likely. or do they just not come around much? that way surprises me because they were all about some NC knot. do they post elsewhere now? just curious...

    I noticed since melissa has started her new job she really doesn't post as much...but she's definitely not gone.  I'm not sure about Bridget...

    Bridget is a professor/teacher so i'm assuming since school started shes busy. Same thing with Melissa, new job= busy!  I see them post a lot on Facebook.As for the nest, I actually like the national boards better. I lurk on Whats Cooking and Trouble in Paradise (this one is just really funny). The NC nest board seems a bit slow, and plus they seem really clicky (IMO), but whatever.

    kristy - i'm sorry.  i didn't mean lose them as in they said "peace out TK" but just that they don't post much anymore.  but like others have said i think it is more of a function of work than anything else.honestly though you can't blame anyone for leaving.  at a month out i'm pretty over the wedding stuff...just trying to keep momentum going until i get pics back from Cheyenne so i can be giddy all over again.  i still show up here though b/c everyone is so nice. :)

    Haha - I am sticking around until I get my pictures back and until after some Knotties who I love get married and then I will probably be around less.
