Hello Bread People!

Just wanted to introduce myself. As my name shows, I am a sourdough addict. I have been baking sourdough for about 5 years now (wild yeast only). I have 6 different starters that I keep going. Sourdough is so fascinating to me and I keep learning new things every day.

I love this forum and the way it is set up. The people all seem very nice and friendly. I only wish it were more active. We need more people on here!

Hello and welcome! The site is only 3 months old, but it does seem to be picking up the pace. We've got a small core of regulars and a bunch of new people signing up every day - the more the merrier, so spread the word!

Six starters?!? Wow, that's almost like being a foster parent.

Thank you for your compliments on the site. I'm glad to hear you like it.

Yeah, as Dstroy said, the site is only three months old, and I don't have the budget to spread the word about it through anything more than word of mouth. I have been getting a steady stream of new members (a handful every day) and there are some very good bakers, better than I am, who visit here regularly already, so I am optimistic that the site is gathering steam. Think of it as the "slow-rise" website promotion technique... it may take a little longer than a professional site with an advertising budget, but hopefully the end result will be better!

I'd love to hear more about your different starters and what you use them for some time.
