Y'all might have noticed that the SB.com crew got new pics. And y'all might have wondered....in over 8 years....we've never seen the chick with the mop?



Well, I'm going to tell you a story. Awhile back, the SB.com folks needed tech support help, beyond Kelsey's spare time. So, we got all brilliant, and said - let's get some peeps in different time zones! If we hit, say, eastern time to AZ standard time, we're going to cover WAY beyond the standard work day.

So, ForumTech was born. The idea was originally...multiple people with a potential to be behind the curtain, but a single, unified "persona".

The response was...well, you guys thought our generic tech person was...boring. Dry. No fun.

And if there's one thing that we are, it's definitely FUN!!!! So, we gave her a name. Megan was born.

Time passed. The tech support has, I won't say dwindled to a single person, but let's say I'm so freaking spectacular that I do it solo. Kelsey'd agree. Yes, I paid her to agree.

If Megan ever said something funny or smart alec? Yeah. That was me. If she ticked you off....that was someone else.



So, with the new pics, it seemed like it was time. Step out from behind the curtain, and say HI. This is me, the real me now.

Hi. Nice to meet you. My name is...Lisa. I live in MI. Eastern time zone, but I don't sleep, so you never know when I might pop in. And here in a minute, after I push ADD POST here...I'm gonna post a pic. Of me. For real.

It does occur to me that I know a lot more about you guys than you know about me. So...ask. I'll answer stuff, if you want.

We've bounced around - should I change my name? I've seen Megan for so long that I'm kind of tempted to say......no. So please feel free to weigh in on that, too.

Congratulations Lisa!! Finally able to step out of the broom closet and share your real self

It's been a journey of trial and error and "megan" has worked for a long time, but now we want to connect... to REALLY connect to all of you - our loyal members... and we feel we need to be honest and forthcoming to do so.

SO yes, new, unified pictures - and Janitor Lisa - still the same 'ole Scrapbook.com!

XOXO

I'm 'fraid you're stuck with the sense of humor. That's not leaving!

*sigh* Now I feel bad for always calling you Megan...do you ever respond to that name IRL?

It's very nice to meet you Lisa, for real!

Absolutely no feeling bad allowed!

Matter of fact, yes. Someone yelled Megan in Dress Barn a few weeks ago. I turned around. DOH!

You know what? You actually don't look unlike how I imagined you. How strange is that?

Nice to meet you......I want to know more about you cause you are so important to this wonderful site.

When did you start scrapbooking and why?

Do you have a colour that you tend to scrap a lot with?


BTW, I love this but I will consider you Megan cause that is my niece's name but I will call you whatever you are comfortable with.....just keep up the good work.

1999-2000ish. I can't remember exactly when. A friend drug me to a CM party...I remember telling her, I'm not creative...



Now, you should see the piles.

Colors, I have a way out of proportion pile of blue stuff. And brights. I don't tend to go for pinks or pastels.

Mind blown, indeed! Welcome Lisa! I always wondered why Megan's avatar wasn't a photo.
