 Ok ladies, I'm curious, what makes you decide to reply to a post?  and those of you that don't reply, why don't you??  This is the no shy zone, so come on and tell me!!!!

 I reply because even if it's something I'm not interested in, I want that momma to know that we are always here!

If I feel if I have something to add or advice or support to give I will reply. If I don't have anything good to add I usually don't reply.

The above reason. If I don't reply, it's usually because, I don't have a solution, etc.

Just like now... I start to write a reply and don't like the way it's coming out so I begin to start over. Sometimes I'm curious as to the post and the replies especially if it might enlighten me personally. Sometimes the post is boring. Sometimes I would like to type in a reply that wouldn't be very nice, so I just hold my tongue (or fingers in this case). Sometimes I don't think I have anything new to offer as in advise or suggestions. And sometimes I'm not sure my words even matter to the OP. I like to use the "like button" and it should indicate my support with the reply or post w/o actually writing a reply. It's a good question though....

 if it is something I am knowledgable in I reply. something I have no clue in or am left not knowing what to say I don't. I either bump it or don't answer. If I feel they are starting drama I just ignore it period. If it is a cute or funny post ( you can usually tell by the title) I at least read it cause I need to occupy my mind somewhere else. If I am having a bad day I generally don't answer post  at all cause they may not be nice answers. If it is one of my don't give a damn days I don't answer, just look for the funny stuff to read.

I usually reply if it is something I can relate to. I dont reply in cases where I feel I havent experienced those feelings or if it doesnt apply to me.
