I use it for socializing to a large degree.
I use it to share ideas...give and take on both...so for knowledge gain.
My biggest use though is as a journal.Ive used it to store economic trends,personal expenses,life events....that sort of thing.Then when I need to remember something,like what I spent for jar lids,when we got the dog,etc,I can pull up exact dates,etc. Thats been the singularly most useful thing for me because I have that nowhere else,my memory sure cant store dates and numbers at all!
I would have never thought of bean flour, if it weren't for this board.
It also provides encouragement as we try new things...a lot of people that I know don't "enjoy" doing things differently than the norm. It's nice to have a place that is accepting and encouraging as I go off on some of my "merry little way"
I also use it for my ramblings (in case you didn't notice) posting my ramblings, gives them a place to live, and frees up my brain cells for other thoughts (rambles)
This is also the place that I start my day (a good place to read with the morning coffee) and my key down from work (which is what I'm doing now)
