    I was doing some research online and I found a couple of answers on this website but when I attempted to put in my opinion, it told me I needed to register. So I did and I put in my two cents too but then I got interested in another thread, and then another and then another. I was amazed at how easily I could coonect and communicate with so many peeps all in the span of an hour. I felt like I had a social life again. Since then I have been here everyday reading and posting up a storm....hee hee.

    That is my story.

    I came across this site while browsing for "Relationship with In-laws". So many discussions were happen on it. Later on I started following the new member guidelines and was able to go through so many topics. I am really very happy to register in this forum. We get end to end information on so many things. Now its like any question I have i in mind, i come and browse IL and immediately get an answer:).

    eg 1: I was looking for Indigo Powder. I kept doing so much research about it. :idea I just typed the word here and :wowhere it is and also the place where we can buy it .

    eg 2: I was browsing through Money matters and i could know so much about the credit cards, about mutual funds and much much more....

    My list of examples will go on ....

    Interesting thread. I was searching for a new hair cut that would suit me. It was then that I accidentally stumbled upon this site. I registered here and got a few suggestions. Then my relationship with IL continued as just asking queries and getting solutions for 3 months.

    Then I found the snippets and stories forum interesting. Then I started writing. Got real good friends, sometimes I am able to interact with online friends much better than with my real friends.

    Thanks for starting this thread satchi :)

    arunadhriji,

    while i agree with you that we already have a forum "who am i" for newcomers, i feel that some of the people coming there will just stop with that information - about themselves. this thread aims to get some more people who would give us some more details about how they found the site, or whether they were introduced by someone, or whether they searched, and in that case how they found the site.

    thanks for your fb sir. shall look forward to your story here too.

    Well thinker Satchi,

    you have been proving your mettle all these days and I would never get to be so charmed reading such sweet things had 'we' not been here at IL.

    But for me it was not a conscious decision or wish. I was searching for the lyrics of a carnatic song, and google led me here. Initially my login was different. I surfed a while and found this place amazing! So became a 'permanent' member!

    I realise soon that had I found this forum some years back, my journey through hard times would be much easier!
