I have changed the setting of this journal to friends' only. Although I don't share a lot of personal stuff on it, now that I have began to join several livejournals and comment on some of my favorite authors', it makes me slightly uncomfortable that people who review the same communities or livejournals as I do, my livejournal is just a click away.
So, if you know me from somewhere-Ozmopolitain, real life, or SAYS, although I'm not frequent there any longer-please comment and I'll make sure to add you. But if I have no idea who you are and you comment, I'm afraid I won't be able to add you. :-( I'm not sure I'm going to get to know people through livejournal either, so take no offense if I don't add you and we "kind of" know each other.
I'm also thinking of starting a new livejournal. This one is almost a year old (the longest I've ever stuck with a journal, amazingly enough) and has served me well, but it does seem slightly cluttered. If that were to happen, I would rejoin all my communities over again. Most likely, though, I will hold off and keep this as the "all purpose" livejournal and make a new one (if!) my novel ever does get published. I think this seems reasonable. :-) After all, it'd be fun to keep people updated on the actual PUBLISHING editing process! Well, a girl can dream, can't she?
Thanks for understanding!
