I have loved this site, but as I check , "Today's Posts", as is my wont, more and more, there are only student related topics. What has happened here? Has anyone else noticed this? I have no... Read More

    PS: I guess in the minority, but I hated the app. I installed it, but found I never used it. I tend to connect on AN during the week when I'm more often at a computer.
    I'm in that same group Jen-Elizabeth. I just don't use my cell phone for much besides talking on the phone and texting . . . which I hate to do.

    Gimme my laptop at home or my desktop at work! You can see so much more!

    As to ups and downs here - I've been here a long time and I've seen those come and go. I'm sticking around.

    And yes, love the school nurse forum. Remember, lice don't jump!

    I miss you. You are one of my AN crushes.
    Since we're talking AN crushes, you and a lot of the regulars in the SN forum are mine! Also a few of the regular COB's...

    Also, is it just me, or have you guys noticed a trend in the people who don't seem to get the "anonymous" side of AN? A lot of new folk with avatar pictures I'm 99% sure are of themselves (unless it's some celebrity I've literally never seen before, which is possible). I mean, I get that social media generally encourages that - and, indeed, my personal social media pages are me. But the point of AN is to be able to vent...and it is in the TOS and all, but I doubt too many people read those on any site.

    And the usernames that look an awful lot like a real name, and the posting of email addresses, and the posting of full names, and the (you get the picture)

    LOL!
    OT is Off Topic.
    I had good communication with the mods at the time, and I think we are all okay now.

    I do tend to drift. I understand that, and it's not my board, so I have to Obey.
    The problem is, I thought it was OUR board.
    I missed you, Farawyn ❤️. I've always enjoyed reading your posts!

    When I first started, my name was my nickname and I had a real photo up of Spidey and myself. I was a neophyte with social media. Fortunately, the powers-that-be at AN . . . or maybe it was herring . . . warned me about that.

    Hard to believe Spidey will be 16 soon and he isn't that big a fan of Spiderman anymore. But, I'm still Spidey's mom.

    I suspect that the full names and selfie avatars are something that folks will eventually see the wisdom of NOT using . . . but they came with the paid writers. Another thing that has changed the character of AN.

    I've definitely considered writing for the site and if I can get paid for it, so much the better, but I still don't ever plan to put a picture of myself up. True, though, paying for generated content does tend to change the flavor of a site. I can see both sides, as I recently left a writing gig because it wasn't paid yet they made constant demands for articles to be churned out to generate traffic. IMHO, though, the articles I find myself enjoying the most are written by long-time site members and it's just one thing they do among other discussions here.

    Well, I have one year of experience and I am also a formerly stale new grad. I feel like this forum is reflecting what is going on in my current workplace. I have oriented 3 nurses in the past 3 months. One of them stayed for three months and then put in her two weeks notice. Another has been there 2 weeks and is already looking for greener grass. The last one stuck his badge and a written notice in our manager's mailbox at work.

    Then there's jaded ol' me, sipping on a protein shake and watching/listening to it all...much like I do here.
