    Currently, not much. I don't have a baby or toddler. My son is older at 9yrs. I think it's mainly a time waster for me these days. I don't have the friendships on here like I used to many years ago however the few people I have reached out to have been awesome(@loodle I am looking especially at you)

    I'm a first time mum at 39. My friends all had kids 10 years ago. I guess this is a place I can get my fill on baby stuff and ask questions/chat with people who are in the same boat. And I like the fluffy stuff. Not into the arguing/b!tchy/holier than thou comments though. That's what Facebook is for, isn't it?

    It's my only social life - how sad. I'm a sahm in a city with no family or friends so this place keeps me sane.

    I can have a vent, complain and get things out.

    I can have a laugh at some the amazingly witty and engaging women on here.

    I can learn by reading other people stories and view points and hopefully offer advice to others.

    Havent been around lately so i dont really know whats going on.

    I have been here for years and years.

    I have found some incredible people that have become great friends even though we have never met on person.
    Social interaction with all kinds of people. A lot I wouldnt have metbon my real life. They have taught me so much. I love that about bh you need to get along with someone to learn so much from them. One thread you can be fighting to death and the next offering hugs and support and really mean it.
    Support omg the amoubt of support this place has goven me is beyond measure. I am zo grateful for it.
    Advice. I gotten so much advice not just on baby/child stuff but also on how to parent a adult to what to buy her for her first drink.

    Boredom buster. Even wgen not postong ifni am feeling alone or bored i can pop on for.a.few mins and not feel so alone.

    To put it in a nutshell, social interaction without having to put myself out in the "real world".

    Social interaction. I was hoping it would be easier to do online than in the real world, but still find that I get anxious about posting!

    Somewhere to go where there will always be someone who understands when I need to vent/share.

    Getting a wider view on issues and understanding others points of view with more depth, and often when something is mentioned I don't know much about, I'll do some research because the collective wisdom of BH has made me interested.

    I originally joined as I was at a very busy period in my life, and didn't get out to socialise or have a DH who was home to chat to. I'm a social person, I need that interaction.
    Now I come out of habit I guess. Our lifestyle is different, and even though I still don't get a lot of time to socialise I talk to people all day at work, DH is around more so we chat more. I also definitely use bh to procastinate. I was studying when I first joined, and had no interest in reading books for pleasure after having my face in them all day...but I should probably get a good book and start reading again. Pick up a book instead of my phone.

    Something to read while I'm putting the kids to bed.

    I've been around since 2011 and I read a lot more than I post. I probably check it every day if I'm at home.

    I have learnt a lot about different topics and how other people view things. Some posts have taught me not to judge and others have made me re-evaluate my beliefs

    I love my DIGs, I love being able to keep diaries, I love the debate threads (when I am able to participate!). I've made some wonderful friends off the hub when I joined many years ago.
