I found Wiccan Forums several years ago after I offered up a prayer to the Goddess to help me find a good site. I have taken great pleasure in the company that I found there and I was really feeling quite blue after it shut down. I couldn't find another pagan forum that I liked to replace it. I did amuse myself on several political forums since then but politics really bore me compared to my true love of paganism, Wicca, witchcraft, magic and all such related topics. I recieved a e-mail which I didn't notice for a few days telling me about the new site where I might find my friends and here I am. Looking around I love the website.

Hmm I'm noticing a lot of posts as to how Wicca Forums was discovered. My story? I was incredibly confused about what I believed in as far as religion went. I believed in my God but not the book in which I was taught my God had given us. I wanted to know things and I wanted to find people who would tell me the things I wanted to know. Because I read a lot, but I wanted people. I wanted real, live, breathing people telling me the things they believed. I wanted to know the earth the way other people claimed to know the earth. I came across Wicca Forums and some other forum, whose name escapes me...and though Wicca Forums had it's sparklies, it was full of people I saw as not just knowledgeable, but real. Where it felt safe and right to stay and not so much learn as to listen, where I wouldn't be judged for not saying I was pagan, for even hinting that I hadn't jumped head first out of my old religion into the "old religion," so... I stayed. :)

It came up on google when I did a search for pagan forums and I liked the name. There were a couple other I checked out but I really liked the vibes here  :pandadance:

I was looking for a pagan forum to join (the one I frequented quite a while ago randomly disappeared) and went through the listings on Witchvox till I came across this one. It seemed to fit from what I saw, so I joined  :D

I've been noticing more and more hits from them.  I think they must have posted a link here because we have them listed in the resources section.  :D

I found this site through a blog, what blog I do not remember because I tend to be very chaotic in my web-surfing.... 5-10 tabs open at once, new ones constantly! I have found some other Pagan forums, but one of them didn't approve me as a member for some reason, and another has no activity. So I am happy to be here!

I was originally a huge fan of another forum, but it....hmm...often has issues. So, I popped open the Internets and asked the Google oracle where I might find another "pagan forum" and it lead me here.  :whoohoo:

Same as a lot google lead me here, there are many others out there but I am drawn to something more with a close family feeling than a bunch of bells and whistles. Since we seem to be a rare breed and time is short in the day with a job and kids this is a good way for me to have a sense of comunity in my chosen path  :grouphug:

I'm so glad you feel that way, Jermie!  That is really the feel we were hoping to achieve here, so it is good to hear that we've pulled it off.
