I don't feel invisible... But I do feel a little 'out of the loop'.
I dont post as often, I'm not as involved. But that's my fault.
And before I slacked off (ya know, having another baby) It was hard to ignore me when I was racking up 200-300 posts a week.
Though it's been a while actually since I was getting those numbers. I was 'sleepless beauty' back then. I'd sit up at 3am and post in EVERY thread on the new posts list constantly refreshing to see if anyone was out there while jasper pulled an all-nighter. *sigh*
I loved your sleepless beauty username. I thought it was very clever.
I feel massively invisible. But mostly because i changed my name, and then got really busy and stopped coming online all that often - so people who are likely to recognise me, are more likely to recognise me with a different username. And in a few months i'll hopefully be able to go back to my original username, so eh, for now i'll just post sporadically, thank obsessively (because it makes me happy ) and be an almost-invisible lurker.
who isn't popular, but is totally fine with that too
ETA: because i'm lame, i just read the whole thread - and there were only a few names that i didn't recognise/where i couldn't tell you a massive back story about them LOL - and thats because, like a previous poster pointed out, waiting for/X'smummy/mummy2/wanttobeamummy etc names are quite common, and i find it hard to distinguish one from the other :-( i feel bad, and eventually i usually get it - but those are the names i don't recognise usually.
Right! That's it! I'm changing my name so that people will love me!!!!
