Didn't matter to me

I must say I am not a proponent to the new journals change here at Cafe Mom and since it will soon be non-existant I thought I would write a journal post concerning it .. before it's too late! In the years that I have been a member of CafeMom, I have belonged to many groups. I even had one of my own for a time, but most of the women I have met were the result of an interesting journal article. It was the journal articles that let me in to some mom's private problem or triumph that lead me to most of the women I now count as friends. It is also the journals that led me to the groups I eventually joined. So since the public arena of journal posting will no longer be available I would like to say goodbye to all the friends I may have met, all the women who may have reached out to me and all I may have reached out to. Groups are just not the same thing.It is just too bad, this was one of the nice things about Cafe Mom but now that it is gone I fear I will probably go as well.

Thank you for all the help through out the years, it has been nice knowing you. I'm not sure if I will be around much anymore since this was the best part of Cafe Mom for me. ... anyone know other sites out there who do have this feature.

:( I agree. This section is what brought me here, this is how I found most of the people I know. It's such a shame they want to erase that. And for what?

The journals were what hooked me on this site. If I'd only had public groups to choose from when I first came here, I never would have stayed!

Exactly... I really feel that the help and assistance give on the journals page was invaluable, it was also a way for mom's interested in writing to showcase their work . It is sad they are discontinueing it, but I for one am not just giving up. I am going to look around and see if a similiar site exists and if not  I will look into starting a new website featuring a mom journal... I'll see what I can come up with and will let you know.. any one interested send me a friend invite and if I get this going I will message you with what I come up with
