Several notes of concern -- My explanation!

Post by Sweetened on February 26th 2015, 2:42 pm

Hi Everyone;

Over the last few days I have gotten several messages from members who are concerned about my whereabouts and the forum. Let me assure you, I have been around to check in on the threads, though I have lurked more than anything else. The forum has become difficult to promote -- advertising this place on other forums is tacky and in bad taste, and Kijiji, craigslist, and all of the other local free classified ads have restricted the advertisement of this forum, so word has not been able to spread in any quick sort of fashion. For this, I apologize. For the forum to continue it's growth, it will strongly need to be word of mouth.

My silence has been purely based on lack of time or energy to make anything a worthwhile contribution. I have changed jobs to work from home, become consumed by the farm and it's trials, took a pay cut and position change in my new job, have become pregnant, lost a dog and assisted in the delivery of 5 goat kids, witness to the birth of 8 total, and caring for 4 bottle babies in my house along with my menagerie of cats and agreage of snow and bitter cold. I have not forgotten this place. I don't like pretending to contribute where I feel my statements would be no contribution at all. I am certainly happy to join discussions, I just have not had the ability to sit and write and center myself for anything more than a few minutes without some sort of interruption (tend the fire, feed the goats, yell at the cats, let the dogs out, get them back in, chase them when they run off, fall asleep).

I apologize to those this has offended and scorned -- it was not meant personally, it was not meant as abandonment, it was not meant with any maliciousness whatsoever.

Hoping everyone is well.

Thankyou, Fowler! Some members have been offended by my absence, which is unfortunate.

I was too. For me, it was more concern that she was okay...and she knows that! Razz

How are you doing? Is your date close? I have been wondering and waiting...

lol It is on my mind more with all the new eggs and potential feathered babies nearing their hatch date around here.

I think everyone here is super busy due to the lives we've chosen to live, full of critters, kids and chaos!! I have gone months without posting, but it is good to know that when I need advice, it's only a click away. Congratulations Sweetened!! Take care of yourself and try not to worry about what people say (though I know that is easier said then done).
