You know us writerly types. We're feedback junkies.
What I missed about LiveJournal, though, was its format. It lent itself to longer, more discursive essays. The layout works well for reading long stuff, while FB, with its narrow columns does not.
In the meantime, I started turning my eye more toward writing longer works and trying to find a place for people looking for my books to land. Neither LiveJournal or FB served that need well. So, I have taken the plunge and acquired my own domain where I have a website and a place for people to find my books. I'll still be on FB and LiveJournal, but the center for things I write, and for people looking for those things will be the website.
