I joined in March 2010 and lurked about before posting later that year.  I came via a coaching recommendation for the business opportunities.  I'm thankful for that but the relationships(online and in real life) that have occurred have been a very pleasant surprise.   It's a great combination of networking, information gathering and some fun too.

I've been here about 8 years, or so.  It's hard to keep track, 'cause hours turn into days, days turn into weeks, and weeks... well, they turn into years.

And the next thing you know, your fingernails are so long it's hard to type.

Why do I stay here?  Well, they keep the door locked, the lights off, and the chains locked.  And they'll only feed me if I blog.  Blog, man, blog!
