I'm not sure anyone cares one way or the other, but I seek your opinion. If you read my fic, would you have any objection to me not posting the actual story here, but a link to the chapter on AO3 instead? Back in the day, having it on LJ made sense for the conversations in the comments, but since those days are long gone, I was thinking it would be simpler to not have to post links to chapters and the story, and the parts, and update them both on LJ and DW. I would probably continue to post short things here, but the multi-chapter stories, just on AO3.

ETA: Since I apparently wasn't clear, just clarifying that I'm referring to my own DW/LJ/AO3 - places where I post. It's my own journals that interaction has faded on. I wasn't commenting on anyone else's experience. I accept total responsibility that I'm old and boring and haven't kept up with the times to sustain my readers' interests :)

On Dreamwidth, this post has comment count unavailable comments ~ feel free to comment on either journal.

I prefer to read things on A03 these days - it's just more eyes-friendly than LJ, and it's definetely easier with multi-chapter stories, or stories in the series.

Thanks for the input :)

It's sad to hear that LJ is what it once was. But I'll read your stuff wherever you post

I'm glad that you are still posting announcements here, but I'm perfectly happy to read them on the AO3.

Good to know, thank you.

Yeah, I'm starting to do that too. An announcement here, then link off to AO3. It's easier to track hits/traffic that way, and the commenting feature on AO3 does allow for some back and forth.

You were the one that got me thinking about it actually :)

We care! And I think that's a good, streamlined way to do it.

Thanks :)

I'll follow you anywhere :)

I'm thinking about doing the same thing once I start writing again. I'm not too sure yet.
Ithithildyn on September 2nd, 2013 05:02 pm (UTC)
Awwww, thank you :)

Seems totally reasonable - I appreciate the announcements on LJ, as I don't tend to follow stories on AO3 - it's just one more place to keep track of - but I have no objection at all to reading stories over there.

Thanks for the input :)

I've been doing that for awhile since it's much easier to post on AO3 than either LJ or fanfiction.net.

I have always enjoy your stories and look forward to reading many more.

Thank you.

Pfft to you being old and boring.

Have at AO3 I say. I love a lot of its features so go for it.

Thanks :)
