Videos
Polls
Journals
The Stir blogs
Groups
Answers
Profile Widget Games (like the laundry game)
Games section Games (latte land, etc)

How many of those do you use regularly? How many do you forget even exist (or didn't know existed at all)?

  • No. I'm active in a few groups, have a few journal posts (though now I just link to my blog), and spend time here. I may use the chatterbox every now and then, but I don't do polls, showdowns, games, chat, etc. I'll check out the stir when someone links an article, though not often. I don't think I have any albums on here, and no videos. Most of my personal stuff, like photos, etc, is on my facebook. I just don't care to spend a lot of the time on them in here.

  • Nope

    I answer questions in the answers section and that's about it. Half of the things you listed, I've never even heard of much less used.. LOL Now that I have heard of them, I mostly likely still will not use any of them.

  • I read the stir blog, answers, and am in a bunch of groups but I only really care about three. I play baker's street when there are no good questions to answer, because I can do that one handed while nursing.

    The rest of it I don't bother with. I may read a friends journal if she puts one up.
