Tom, I'm sure this isn't your intent, but let me explain.

When we see a new member that shows up and coyly asks us about some 'new' site or author, the cynics among us assume that it is a self-promotion by the owner/creator looking to generate some traffic.

If you are the creator, people are more likely to respond favorably if you mention that upfront and ask for input or feedback on the site.

Secondly, it would help us if you gave us a summary and told us what you thought was important about the site. If your purpose is really only promotion, then you probably only want to list the site -- and don't be surprised if no one actually visits it.

Most members here try to be helpful be bringing information into the message boards. Tell us why its interesting, and you will start a discussion here. Some of us might even be interested enough to go there.
