How do we get things moving?

Hi ladies!  I know things have gotten much slower around here lately so I was just wondering if you have any ideas on how to get things moving?  I love hearing about all our SDs and would hate to see us get shut down from lack of activity.  I'm open to any idea!

It's hard for me to get on all the time, but I would hate to see us shut down, as well!  What about a question of the week?  Not necessarily child-related, just something fun that would get us chatting.  :)  We could take turns posting a question so that no one has to come up with one all the time.

I'm not sure if there is a way to notify all mommies, but I think that would be a great idea.  I'll ask CM Kristy and see if that is an option.

And I will start a first birthday thread.  Can't believe how soon our SDs will be 1!!!

Thank you for your suggestions!  I tried a Mom of the week a while back and I think we got through most people, but the last three I posted the moms never responded to it, so that is why I abadoned it.  I am happy to give it a try again though!

I think a POTW is an awesome idea.  I love seeing pictures of our little ones!

Is there any way to send out a message to board members as a gentle reminder to come and check in and give us an update? This might get people back here. Having a first birthday party thread would be cute, so we can share ideas & photos.

How about a "mommy of the week"? We could come up with a set of questions and then each week pick a new mommy and she can answer those questions and any others anyone wants to ask. This way there is more activity and we can get to know each other a bit better.

We can also do a "picture of the week"...have a theme and everyone post a pic of their SD relative to that theme.

I don't know but I will think on it! I love my iV and don't want us to lose our board either! Think girls. It's my online mommy time
