So, I had signed up for Hello Bee when they were in beta. I assume they are now out of beta?
How are you ladies liking it?
I have to admit, I love the girls on here. I recognize you all. I like our own little corner of WB. But then Hello Bee is baby-centric. And with baby coming soon I feel I might want something baby-centric. I’m such a forum whore. hahaha.
Anyway, do you like Hello Bee more or WB more? Pros and cons of either?
Do you frequent both?

I’m not pregnant but I do have a HB account. For some reason, I feel uncomfortable going over when we’re not TTC yet.
I should add that once we’re TTC, I’ll probably transition more of my time over there.

I voted twice…Once in favor of the babies board here which I prefer. I like the organization of the boards better here and I know everyone as you say Regbera. But I also voted that I like Hellobee more because of their awesome content. I don’t read the blogs on WB anymore or go anywhere besides the babies board…For content, blogs, gear lists and reviews, I go to HB now.

I have a HB account, but I haven’t logged in for awhile. I’m Pre-TTC/preparing. Possibly I’ll find an interest when I am TTCing/pregnant/mommy. Right now, nothing really interests me. Plus I’d miss all you ladies here too.

I spend a bit more time on HB now, I think that after my LO is born I won’t be popping on here much anymore.

I kinda feel that way too since there’ll be a bigger “audience” to respond to questions. If that makes sense.
Do you have the same name over there?

@chastenet: I voted the same way and for the exact same reasons 🙂

I also like that here on WB even though it’s all baby over there, there seems to be more board response here… atleast for me anyways.
For most of my pregnancy & childbirth/rearing questions I still frequent another forum entirely b/c there still isn’t all that much activity on HB.

I use HB more. I don’t know why–probably because this is not my “real” WB name, so I always feel like a traitor posting.

@regberadaisy: Yep! I am over there under the same name!

I’m not as major of a board participator as some of you ladies, but I try to post when I can. I love the blog at Hellobee, I learn a lot. But I feel like the organization of the baby/pregnancy boards over here is a little better and I still like reading some of the posts topics that aren’t pregnancy related–WB moves faster–and that comes in handy when I’m bored 🙂
I think I spend equal time on them, though. Some days I love HB more and some days I love WB more.

I prefer HB. It’s more baby centered than this baby board and seems to be more helpful, at least for me. Plus it’s section off into TTC, Pregnancy and Parents. Just easier to navigate and skip stuff I don’t want to read.
Plus, the crowd seems different, which I like. It just feels…something…here.

I am on both, but tend to still be on WB more. I do like when I see familiar names over on hellobee, it makes me feel less new over there! I think that there are more people to ask questions to there, since there are likely more women who are already Moms. As for the pregnancy stage, I have enjoyed having the Spring ladies to talk to here!
@regberadaisy: I have the same username/avatar over on hellobee, too 🙂
