We have so many new members, I'm curious about how the word is getting out. Sharing your source will also help us with our marketing efforts.

I learned of MA through an email and then a phone call.

How did you discover MA?

Thanks,
Ace

Sheesh, Lil must have been very busy.

I got discouraged with MB and stopped posting in July.

Then got an email from half way around the world about MA.

Since we're apparently name-dropping, Lil emailed me, too. blush

ETA: Larry, I don't know what categories to give you or I would. I would not have thought of "private message from another board" as a category. Maybe we'll just let this evolve with short answers and see what we get. Thanks for the offer. I did not see where you started this. Sorry if it's a duplication.

Private message on another board. Not a direct recommendation, but enough to pique my interest.

It was posted directly on DB for me. I think it was Allen_A that put it on there, but I can't recall and it has been deleted, I am sure that was probably the banning for that poster. Like I said, I think it was him, but may have been someone else.

You have an interesting story BTW.

I do not know of a marriage forum that allows PM except for this one. Would you mind sharing which one it was? It is just fine to drop me a PM wink

A friend sent me an email. I checked it out, liked what I saw and went to work.

I heard about the conception from a few different sources, and on the day of its birth our house e-mailed me.

Then I told pretty much everyone I knew.

I was crying and searching about affairs and used google. I found the marriage builders site and lost it, googled again and found this site.

I know what you mean NOW Lil but when I first read this, I got a mental picture of your brand new house, growing arms and a keyboard out its windows and sending YOU and email. laugh1

So, Tink....are you saying that when you found the marriage builders site and lost it that you 'lost it' as in you "lost your composure even more and cried harder so that you couldn't continue?" or that you lost "the MB site from your computer screen?" Either way, I'm glad you found MA...I think you may be the first who found us via a search engine.

This has been interesting so far.

What other ways did posters find Marriage Advocates?

I found crumbs and followed them. I guess I was hungry.

I found crumbs too, but lost the trail. You must have eaten them. It wasn't till it was posted directly that I found it. I had even tried to google all the banned screen names to see what I could find at one point.

I was explaining on the MB forum what I thought about the MB forum's policy and how I felt people who wanted something else could and should go build it. Curious emailed me. I've never known much else about Curious, other than that email and reading a few of Curious's posts.

For what it's worth, I found MB four and a half years ago by Googling "midlife crisis," believe it or not!

Actually there was a surprisingly long period of time between Curious's email and me even noticing Mark was here.
