Family and friends know of your websites?
My g/f and her family know about my sites, but not *my* family. My family are straight arrows, whereas my g/f is very open minded and my adult site doesn't bother her. 🙂
got yourself a great g/f there.
My family or friends don't know of my sites.

A few of my friends and family know of my website, and some are members (albeit somewhat inactive ones!).
I don't think many of them "get" forums and/or have little interest in them.
I haven't failed. I've just found 10,000 ways that won't work.
I post about Christianity Haven on Facebook a couple times a year so family and friends are aware of the forum...they just aren't active on it. It's hard to encourage people to take part in a forum when they're unaccustomed to that type of community life and my sister said that even though she hides behind a username she feels too exposed to post about herself.
I have friends that know of my website, some have already registered to it, others haven't just yet. I think letting family and friends know about your projects is important and a great way to spread word of mouth to help grow. 🙂
