I'd been hearing rumors and stuff...

Eventually I was sent not a link but the name and Google did the rest.

Caught me on a day when I was a bit perturbed with the other place and a time when I was looking for more than just repeating the same old same old over and over.

Who's next?

How did YOU find Marraige Advocates? While this is mostly for fun and enlightment, it's also helpful for the marketing and promotional efforts of MA.

Thanks,
Ace

I asked AR (up on the Admin forum) if maybe this could be a sticky, along with her poll...if we stickied (is that a word?) it to each forum, perhaps more people would see it, rather than here in OT.

And maybe we could do it as a poll...might be easier to convert the data that way.

Hi OH,

Larry mentioned a poll when I first started this thread. It's a good idea to sticky this above all forums.

Here is a list (in order of response) of those who have replied so far and how they found MA:

Ace Friend email
Not2Fun Friend email
Believer Friend email
Marlowe Private Message on another forum
ShockedOne Post on another forum
Larry Friend email
Lildoggie Friend email
Tinkerbell Google search
Heremainsfaithful Friend email
Vittoria Heard spark, followed light
Pookie69 Found crumbs, followed trail
StillSeeking Friend invite
Markos Friend email
Cinderella Private Message on Facebook
Right Here Waiting Friend phone call
NewEveryDay Friend invite
Mark1952 Google search after friend emailed MA name

The most intriguing IMHO is Vittoria's reply....sparks are usually small so it must have been a whopper that she 'heard' when it made a light bright enough for her to follow. ROFL

I was posting at DB and on my thread I asked why I felt like I was all alone (because I wasn't getting a lot of feedback from the veteran posters). After seeing my post, one of my facebook friends/fellow DBers turned me on to this site.

Lil is a FB friend and she posted a link. I followed the link not knowing what it was about. Then I saw a bunch of names I recognized. I was intrigued.


Forever grateful to www.marriagebuilders.com!

I am like Vibrissa I saw a link at MB before the link was removed, and that brought me over here. I also wanted to link up with alot of the vets from MB because they are a wealth of knowledge and experience.

Welcome twom7!

Glad you're here. Did you have the same screen name on MB? If not, what was it?

Regardless, it's good that you've registered. I think you're the first to put your initial post on this "How did you find us?" thread.

Check out the Reunion Station thread on the OT foum to see that many long-time MB veterans are here....in fact Just Learning recently registered! ( Hey! Hi JL! waves )

Another good place to start is the Welcome Forum above.

Best wishes and again, glad you're here.

Ace

Someone at DB brazenly posted "go to the other place... www.marriageadvocates.com"

LOL

They posted ti more than once too but I can't remember who it was.

Their thread was later deleted. But I had a good laugh smile

This is very helpful for the marketing and promotion of Marriage Advocates.

Thanks to the 24 members who have posted so far.

I will try to keep the list alphabetized weekly so it's easier to keep track of who has posted and who we need to encourage to post about how they found Marriage Advocates.

Thanks,
Ace

Heh... I was recruited by star*fish to help set the forums up!

Haven't been able to be as active as I'd like for the past couple of months, though, due to my workload at work, but hopefully that is easing up now.

I was grumbling to the **starz** and someone FINALLY did something about it..... I think just to shut me up!!! LOL!!! grin

Just kidding...... I got booted out of MB (as a mod no less - LOL!!!) and found those who were also interested in continuing what we knew we could do best.... be a real supportive group to those in need. Wa...llah..... here we are @ MA!!!!

grin

Very happy t/b here. wink

Hi GS and Orchid,

Thanks for your foundational efforts in helping to create MA. Your posts give a whole new meaning to the phrase "The Starz are the limit!" wink

I was directed to a link on Facebook from a few friends I made on the former forum we used to post to.

I actually read here (not registered) for a month or two before I registered.

Someone mentioned MA on talkaboutmarriage.com. I have been reading MB for years but suddenly it dried up and people disappeared. I couldn't believe that so many thoughtful and knowledgeable posters would just stop helping out others.

Finding MA finally made a lot of sense of what was happening on MB.


Knowledge is often mistaken for intelligence. This is like mistaking a cup of milk for a cow.

Wow! Thanks for sharing ATWH! Did you ever post anything on MB and if so what was your screen name?

It's great to have you here.
