I think this thread should be moved to "Not Wedding Related", if even that.  It seems that most of your posts function much like diary entries as opposed to topics that provide or seek wedding related information.  I know some of your more dramatic stories do garner a lot of responses but perhaps you can consider the overall relevance of your threads before posting them.  Thanks.

Hmmm I think pre-wedding workouts are relevant.  A lot of brides are attempting to lose weight/tone up/get in shape/get healthier in preparation for the big day.

I was planning on starting bodypump classes this week (prewedding get in shape plan), but twisted my knee skiing last weekend.  It made me pretty cranky.  Don’t know if I can to situps or if they would yank on my knee too much, but started the upper body weights advice from the infamous batwing post last night to try to cheer myself up…

Actually, Sweeney, I think it’s more about having respect for WeddingBee and what it’s intention is- which is to provide a forum for brides to share information with each other.  It’s not a personal blog that is supposed to be everyone’s daily rants. I think it’s taking advantage of the open forum if you transform it into that sort of thing.  Everyone is entitled to their own opinion, and of course people can chose what they want to read, but I do think that in order to keep WeddingBee as good as it is now (and make it even better!), the readers need to be responsible and thoughtful about what they post and how they use it.  (I’m now fully prepared to get slammed here).

BA – i agree with you.  It’s not about avoiding posts.  It’s about sharing relevant information.  While yes, some personal stories may be relevant to others, most of them are not.  The hive has been great for idea/vendor sharing – I would hope it stays this way.

Not sure how much "value" add a step by step posting of 25 crunches gives us…..

I think the issue that several people are having with posts like these is that they are really glorified personal posts, rather than any sort of wedding-community-related posts.  Asking for advice, giving advice, sharing ideas, these are all things that all weddingbee forum participators can gain from.  A play-by-play of you doing 25 sit-ups, however, is not. I’m serving steak at my wedding.  Does that mean that I’m going to come in here and post about the steak I bought on sale from the grocery store last night?  No.  If you started a bridal bootcamp last night and want to talk about it, thats fine.  But WeddingBee has a "Non Wedding Related" board for a purpose, and its for posts like these.  Although there seem to be no strict guidelines as to what you can and cannot post here on the boards, I do fear that many girls are being turned off by incessant non wedding related rants and conversations that can really be taken into a private forum, IE E Mail, or on your own personal blog.  I hope that you understand that the boards are a public forum, and by posting endless rants/complaints/personal stories like this, the purpose of the boards are being heavily diluted.  It is hard for the average person to sift through 10 personal rants a day to get to the truly wedding related, and helpful stuff.  Many brides in here come and use this as a forum when they TRULY need help, or when they truly want to give meaningful advice.  It is becoming increasingly harder for people to do so when every other post is a personal account of something only slightly relevant to a wedding.

i agree with BA and Amy.

It’s not about whether or not you have friends here.  If telling "friends" about your daily activities is your intention, then perhaps you should keep a personal blog and direct these friends to that blog so they can comment as they please.  Otherwise, like I said above – take advantage of the NOT WEDDING RELATED board and post your stories there.

No one is attacking, and no one is being snarky. No one is saying you have said anything wrong, just that there are better places for it.
