I was Knit. I wasn’t an active commenter. Mostly on blog posts and not many in the boards. I had some DIY posts- a couple hive members PMed me to tell me about my DIY posts under a different name when I was first introduced.

I was jennarationnext… I wasn’t super active, but I commented every once in a while. Most of my post count was accumulated pre-bee.
This was my avatar:

@pretzel- I remember seeing your name! It stuck with me because it was so very simple and uncomplicated!!!

Many of our bloggers had massive post counts before being accepted on the blog! You can spot them on the leaderboard, since they generally keep commenting!
These things go in waves… the last wave of blogger bees haven’t been as active on the boards before applying. But the wave before that was SUPER active on the boards first!

I don’t know why but it really helps me to know whether you were folks that I’d already established a relationship with… Like Knit… I would have definitely been more attentive to Pretzel in the beginning if I knew she was Knit!

@DG I totally agree. If I ever were to become a Bee, I’d feel weird if people didn’t know me all of a sudden… i’d have to “out” myself!

Ditto. Although I think that, with the kind of posts I make, people would know who I was immediately! There’d be no “oh look at my FI!” i’d be like “well, my Fiance is in Iraq, so it’s PAPER NIGHT” and then I’d show ridiculous pictures of my cats dancing on my paper invitations and trying to help me with DIY. That would get me outed for sure. =]

I agree, I think I’d have to “out” myself. I would be too excited not to.

Plus, you’d have to be a newlywed Bee EJS!

Hm… I haven’t made a big thing of “outing” myself because I’m ridiculously paranoid. It’s quite easy to figure out if anyone is interested (I’ve answered anyone who’s PM’d me, and going through one of my billions of old threads generally makes it pretty clear), but for some reason having it all come together “out loud” makes me feel nauseous. 😉 I already find myself super-anxious everytime a post goes up, wondering if I might say something that upsets someone accidentally while I have so much exposure freaks me out. So if I don’t *directly* answer this question most of the time, hopefully everyone understands… I’m just weird. 🙂

so glad this thread came up! I just asked this question last night to Miss Spaniel in the post-a-thon. i was wondering the same thing… because I feel like there is kind of a smaller group here who posts a LOT and I would definitely notice if one of them went missing. And if I become a bee I couldn’t NOT tell you all who I am! You’d wonder where corgi went all of a sudden!

Well shoot, I was going to out some b/c I know who they are…but maybe they’d like to be anon.
So all I’ll say is that I remember Bear Cub and Bruchetta from their pre-bee days.

Pretzel – I knew you right away from your story in the Bios!
