I just wanted to say what an incredible forum this is!
I have been looking back on past threads and there is such a wealth of information, advice, funny stories, heart-rending stories and support.
It's nice everyone has their own opinion on things but I notice an overwhelming amount of support no matter the subject. Other forums I have read you always seem to get the odd scathing or hurtful comment. This doesn't happen here - not sure if it's because that's the type of people BLWers are?
Anyway, thank you to the administrators for such a well organised forum - its a home from home! And I put my hand up to offer my services in future if you need volunteers to help with admin ( I am pretty good with computers, Internet, websites etc).
Ciao!

It IS such a nice place isn't it! There are other nice forums I go to occasionaly, but even there I find they have random hurtful comments and nastiness, like you said. That never ever happens here! I think on here, for some reason, instead of being nasty or nastily disagreeing with people, we tend to just keep our mouths shut. I love these people!

And I've got a glue gun now. That sounds dangerous, at least.

Glue guns are very dangerous...I don't think my finger-prints have returned since I last used mine!

Now I also have a woodburning pen. Now that's scary. I could give you tatoos!

Apart from the scary craft weapons (!) I very much agree Tinkymum.
I've never been on any other forums, but I was telling my sister the other day how lovely, clever, sensible and funny everyone is on here. I actually wish I knew some more people like you BLWers IRL.
Oh, and as a bonus (I know, I am totally anal) people can spell! :)

The spelling thing isn't anal, I can't abide text speak! Some of us can even use apostrophes correctly :wink:

Whereabouts are you MIT? Lots of us meet up from time to time, so maybe you could get to know some of us IRL. Check the meeting up forum.

Oh, and my staple gun isn't scary, it's fun :D

I totally adore this forum. I don't know how I'd manage without it! I joined nearly three years ago now looking for advice on first solids and now I have to ask advice on everything but weaning!

I do try to spell correctly and avoid text speak but as I post mostly on my iPhone, sometimes autocorrect takes over and changes my words so they no longer make sense. I usually can't be bothered editing so sometimes my posts do have mistakes. Not my fault though! Everyone is allowed typos!

I'm also really glad I found this forum. Although, I wonder sometimes if I am becoming slightly addicted! I used to read to read books on my kindle when feeding/ stuck under sleeping Crumpet and now I read this instead, and I haven't even made it into the craft section, way too scary. I like the good spelling and punctuation too although often completely flummoxed by the abbreviations (I'm new to any kind of virtual community). I do get a sense of achievement when I figure an abbreviation out!! Everyone seems very genuinely lovely and normal :D

I popped on to Netmums the other day- I was on there for a bit after I had O, before I discovered this place- and it was insane! Scary crazy, everyone laying into each other for no reason what so ever. I ran away quickly. We're pretty lucky here aren't we :).

Oh, and I can't spell to save my life without spell check (and I'm usually on my phone which doesn't have autocorrect)- but I do know the difference between their/there/they're, your/you're etc, which I think makes up for it ;).
