I totally agree. Many people start a website/blog/forum and quit so soon. They should realize that it takes some time to establish anything on the internet with so much competition.PATIENCE! DEDICATION!
Those are the two things that all web owners need. Your site will not take off over night unless you have a large following that plans to set up camp on your forum. It's taken me ten years to finally get my website off the ground where most do not last beyond the first few months.
