I check weddingbee about once, sometimes twice a day! I just don’t post that much 🙂 I enjoy reading the posts and people’s comments, sometimes my thoughts have already been said! But maybe I’ll start posting a bit more now 🙂

Eeek totally me! I haven’t posted in ages and can feel myself turning into a full on lurker bee! I too click the helpful button a lot and do a lot of voting on polls. I really enjoy reading the dramatic posts from OPs then skipping all the responses and looking for that green post a few pages later when OP comes back to update! I don’t knwo why I enjoy all the drama and crazy situations so much – maybe it’s like watching a soap on TV…

Have been a member of the hive since 2013 but post very rarely because other bees have already posted what I would’ve said anyway.

I lurk.  Every day, all day. 

I lurk because if I posted a majority of what I want to say in threads I would have been banned a long time ago.

Yep.. I go through phases, I’m more likely to reply if I’m browsing on my laptop.. Which isnt often. I enjoy reading everything though, tucking all the wisdom away for when my time comes 😃

I definitely lurk more than I post! I’m also much more likely to post while I’m at work on my laptop than I am at home on my phone/ipad unless I’m feeling particularly opinionated.

Me too! Phew- glad I’m not alone! I find myself starting replies to posts and then deleting them as unnecessary and bound to be echoed by hundreds of other bees. I linger on the periphery, watching, learning, but seldom commenting. <img src=

I dont post my own stuff to much, but I do read the Bee everyday and all day at work. 

Im  afraid to chime in on posts because sometimes the “swarm” of bees can attack at anytime. So I try to be careful what I say, so Im usually short/sweet and to the point.

I don’t count at all now. I post constantly. But I used to be a lurker! For over a year. Then I dove in and I love it! Ha

I lurked for quite a while when I was in the waiting phase, I found it helpful to read about people going through the same emotions as I was. I signed up for an account after I got engaged but still just mostly lurk…
