Moving on ...

Is it just time to move on? I’m not sure, I really don’t know. Some days I’m ready and running to work on my message board, other days, not so much. Taking over a week off from posting there, from being the ‘head admin’ on the board, I’ve come to realize I’m actually thinking it may be time to move on. I have nothing more to offer there now, at least I feel like I don’t. I’ve evolved myself, I’ve moved on. I’d like to take more time to evolve my blog into a greater blog than what it is. I’ve gone as far as I can go with my message board. I’ve had it for almost 5 years now, and it’s just not helping me in any way anymore.

I’ve made great friendships there, that I don’t intend on loosing, but I think my time as admin, my time as a top contributor to the board may have been coming to a slow, a minimum and I just didn’t want to see it. It takes up much more of my time than my blog, to which I’ve been ignoring a lot lately and find I get much more enjoyment out of blogging right now than I do conversing on a message board.

I have my blog, I have facebook, I have twitter, I have my instant messengers….There’s really no need for the message board anymore, I just hang on and hang on, with really no real reason.

Mommies ‘N Babies has become something great, a great place for women and mom’s to go to to get advice, meet great friends and just chat, but I feel that my presence there is no longer needed, something that may fail if I continue to just stick around, I think there needs to be a change, something fresh something new, someone who wants to take on the challenges and work and just take over the board. I don’t have the desire to do it anymore.

So what do you do in this situation? Take a domain and board that I’ve run (with some great help over the years) for a long while now and just give it up to someone else? I wouldn’t just abandon it, that would be awful, but I’m not sure where to go from here……

Awe Gina I have no idea how you feel. But I highly enjoyed the few friends I made on the forum, once my blog took off I realized there was no place in my life for it again.

I have no idea how it feels to run a forum for so long but I am glad we met and I'd like to think we'll always be BLOGGING friends.

No matter where you go or what you do you'll be fabulous!

Honey, You have to do what you have to do. For you, for what makes you happy. Of course, I wont like seeing you step down, but at least I know I can track you down via the blog, Twitter, YIM, or FB. LOL
