Isn't that the point?

 I guess this is a spin-off of sorts, because I have been told twice today (in a bitchy way, btw) that I share too much on here.

I joined Cafemom 3 years ago.. to make friends, and get and give advice. Isn't that what we are all here for? Isn't it GOOD that some people share their lives?? Sure I share a LOT, but that's my choice. Just as it's yours to read about me (and others).

Isn't the point of this site for moms to join, talk about themselves.. their families.. learn about each other... etc?

 It is the internet... the only information that would be too much is your kids full names, birthdays, where you live, etc.
You are right, that is the point of this site!

You would think that is the point, but too many people seem to think that this is the best place to make themselves feel better by making others feel bad.

You keep right on sharing, dammit.

This has always been a bone of contention for me as well.

In all actuality, that "sharing"...or that glimpse into another's life/journey IS THE DRAW for a venue such as this.

The "sharing" IS the meat, imho. So with that in mind, you are one of my favorite "cuts" and I would be quite perturbed if you ever became demure or soft spoken.

It's up to you how much you want to share or don't want to share. The people who are bitching at you just want something to bitch about. Fck em. :)

I thought it was a social networking site, not a diary. I didn't realize that you were supposed to tell EVERYONE about EVERYTHING, maybe just find a few friends to connect with, enjoy the discussion and drama, and that's it. I think there's something fishy about people who share a lot online on sites like this.

How it REALLY ended.
