How did you find your way to Textkit?<br /><br />Just to start the ball rolling, I'll tell you that I found it recommended in the Perseus FAQ.

<br />Oh, thanks for posting this question. I've been wondering that myself too. I'm interested in learning how everyone found their way over here. I was tempted to ask the question in each new intro post.

Found it through a link from another site. I don't recall which site that was though.

I like this thread! It gives me clues as to how well my SEO techniques are going.<br /><br />Visitors who are looking for a specific book or author always have the best luck - Google has been very good to us. We rank very well for almost all our book titles.<br /><br />jeff.

The site was mentioned on the latinstudy mailing list; I don't remember what the initial post was talking about, but I checked out the site and decided to stay.<br />

Maybe this post should be a sticky so that you can see where the new members are coming from?

The only problem is, I'm not very good at it yet, and I have a little trouble translating while upside down. ;D<br /><br />Keesa

<br /> Textkit came up first when I hit "Learn Ancient Greek" on a search engine. <br /><br /> Needless to say I didn't look any further down. It's full of really interesting manuals, enough to keep a beginner like me busy, AND evergrowing in information (and bright people!), for when I come to handle the language better. <br /><br /> Consaidin<br /><br />
