    Default Where do all the hubbers go....

    ...when they leave bubhub? And what do they do with all of their free time?

    **Before anyone suggests that this is a dig at anyone because a hubber announced she is leaving tonight, it really is not at all**


    Do they all meet up on a sandy beach and sip mojito's? Do they move to a new forum, like the combined V8 Supercar and needlework forum? Do they suddenly become 50's housewives with immaculate homes? Do their partners get a lot more mid afternoon booty calls?

    Where are they and what are they doing?

    I have a few ex hubbers on my FB - many go to FB and stay connected with like minded other ex Hubbers

    Some got to other forums, some go to Pintrest and some Tweet.

    I think some lurk

    No idea but when I went AWOL for a few years, there was no invite to sip mojitos lol. If the invite was forthcoming, I'd probably still be there!

    I think its like all forums- those who tend to dothe whole huffy i'm leaving thread- usually dont actually leave or end up changing usernames and hiding out for a bit then suddenly their back.
    Those who have kids who grow older and find the hub is no longer the place they can relate to just drift off or end up on FB with those firm hub friendships the've made transferring to FB

    The go to 'live on the farm' where they can run free, and breast feed their children past 2, while feeding them cheeseburgers and coke, spell their names 'uniquely' and put them in child care even though they don't work. And no-one starts a thread about it. *gazes wistfully into the distance*
