There are members from both those sites that I've Invited here, and so I wanted to give a shout out to some of our 'roots'.
Many sites don't allow 'advertising' of their 'competition', but I don't see the world that way. This site is here for it's members, to be a resource. If our members would be happier spending their time on another network, then I'd prefer they be where they're happier. I'm no longer a member of either of those sites as they weren't the best fit for me. Which is why I started this space.
So if you have a related website that you run, or that you are a member of and would like to list or promote it. That would be fine. :) This would be a good thread to post it in if it's a social network or forum style site like this is. Or if you have something else you would like to promote to start another thread in this forum.
My only restrictions with 'ads' are that people do not spam or promote aggressively, and basically use common sense and respect to create the kind of atmosphere they would enjoy, which isn't one where people are being sales-pressured by anyone. Keep things on topic and to areas they belong, and don't be spammy or rude, and other than that... be free, and just enjoy the space. *smile*
Another sites that I've found and joined today
Thought I'd share a new and an upcoming site..... We all need one to understand the other. Cohabitation and love (Universal love; not the Freudian love) are the key to survive and foster healthy relationships.
No matter how far we fly; home is where your heart would rest peaceably. God bless!
For sure, everyone benefits.
For myself, even if a member finds a site they prefer to mine and never return, great! I've nothing invested in creating this site other than trying to create sacred space and community for people, my feeling is if they find that space elsewhere, that's great too, it doesn't have to be 'my' space. I'm not out to win a numbers game or make a profit. To me it doesn't matter if my site is 500 people or 500,000 people. It's about the quality, not the quantity and that people are finding community.
No one site is ever going to be the perfect fit for everyone, if someone finds a better home and a better fit for them on someone elses site, I'm all for it.
I guess I've never been the jealous/competitive type in any form of relationships, whether intimate romantic, or a social network. I just love people, and want them to be happy, with me, or without me, whatever works best for them. There are millions of people in the world... I'm greedy for love, but I'm not -that- greedy. lol. They don't all have to love me, or my website, back. *smile*
