I've finally made the decision public that I'm ready to hand over the ownership of the JPC board to someone else. I've been thinking about it and looking for alternatives for like a year, but nothing was really working out. So I offered it up to the participants on the board. I've been really nervous about this, but now I feel pretty content with the decision. Hopefully, it'll all work out nicely.
I've felt myself being drawn away from the stitching boards a lot. Not for any one particular reason, mainly just avoiding temptation of wanting to buy stuff. Truth be told, they've all slowed way down, so there's not much holding my interest. A board owner/administrator who has lost interest in their board and doesn't keep up with it drives me crazy and I don't want to be one of those people. Plus, I've been trying to foster more "real life" relationships (that sounds terrible to my online friends because they're real people and real friends, but you know what I mean). So once I get home, we're pretty much out in the neighborhood until it's time for the kids to go to bed. From that point on, that's my time, and I'd rather spend it stitching than checking the boards.
I'll still be around the online stitching community. I still like to lurk and offer tips here and there. And I'm addicted to Round Robins so I have to stick around for those!
