    Just wondering how many other girls there are here. I know Peggy and Shelley and Dragonfly and a few others, but I figure it couldn't hurt to do a roll call and see what everyone's role is (haha) in their site/community.

    I'm Susan and I started our site as a hobby just over five years ago but it quickly grew into a passion, then an obsession. Thankfully, it's grown enough to pay all the bills. I let my husband play along. :p J/K!

    How about you? Women only please!

    You've probably seen me post a time or two. My site is a scrapbooking site...still not paying it's way yet but it came really close last year. I design themes in my spare time, LOL. Liz

    Female. :) Have you ever assumed that someone was male or female for literally months and then been shocked to discover you were wrong? It's happened to me quite a few times in the past. :D And guys don't take it kindly when you assume they're a girl.

    Here! Great idea Susan!

    I don't have any forums atm, only my personal blog.

    I may start a forum for parents of kids with Autism/Asperger Syndrome/ADHD, et al. My son has Aspergers among other disorders, and finding someone to talk to who relates is... difficult.

    Walks in.. unlaces corset.. Oh thank god!

    :D Hi Susan! I'm Kim, nice to meet you :)

    I started out as a forum member on a tech site about 11 years ago, after a bit we got our own forums, then we switched software from vB to IPB, and I fell in love with skinning it! I worked with Invision doing Custom Skins on a contract basis for a while before starting my own site IBUnique in 2003, IBU was very successful, however I sold it due to a family tragedy in 2005, but bounced back in 2006 with Skin by Dragonfly, my current online home :)

    We live near the beach in regional NSW Australia, about 60kms from Sydney.. where I grew up...I am also a Mother to a teen boy with Asperger's syndrome, and a wife of a million years to Jethro (Jeff) who is a sweetheart :) Passionate in all things I do, I love art, cooking, reading, music and having fun! :D

    Well that's me in 100 words or less :p Nice idea for the Ladies Lounge! :D

    Ahaha! (@ Broagn - and hi Nix)

    I bet I lived not too far from you Dragonfly, once upon a time, for about six months: Coogee Beach outside of Sydney. (I think Coogee - or Coogi? I might have the spelling confused with the sweater.) Beautiful place, and I was so close to the ocean that all things aluminum would turn black. Took me awhile to realize that the minimart wasn't just selling ancient cans of stuff - it was the salt.

    I'm trying to design elements for a collab kit for next month. My muse went missing for a couple of months and she finally came back and I was super busy yesterday. Most of the designers in my store put together mini kits into one big one for customers to get as a freebie when they purchase a certain amount of product. It's a great advertising method but one that is a lot of work, since all our products have to be original. 

    Kim, I avoid most housework. I have severe back issues so we have a cleaning service come in every other week.  

    And we have to run to the grocery store today for a few things.
