Okay, so I deeply, deeply want to get my text-based fannish fix, so I’ve decided to give this whole dreamwidth thing a shot. I’m going to be attempting to cross-post between the two platforms and see how that goes.

Thus, advice on the following would be helpful:

  • cross-posting: how to not fuck it up

  • how to get the most fannish bang for your buck as far as posting on two platforms

  • something else that you don’t know enough to ask about

  • cool people to follow and cool places to hang out!

Also! I am considering just posting my fic on AO3 and linking it from my lj/dw/tumblr. Does anyone have a reason not to do this?

When I made mine I imported my LJ to it. To crosspost, there is a tab in My Account Settings called Other Sites. My LJ is listed there below Accounts, and there's a checkbox for crossposting by default. Whenever I post on DW, the little box appears checked in the page for my post's draft and I can uncheck it if I want to. I don't remember how to put the LJ in that section in order to crosspost, which is why I mentioned importing first of all, but it should be safe to assume it can be added in that Other Sites tab.

ETA: Sorry I can't help with the other stuff. I follow less DW blogs than LJ right now, particularly because the ones I do follow post much less often than they used to. Some of the ones I do follow have LJ counterparts anyway. But part of it is probably due to my focusing on small fandoms for a good chunk of the last few years. Good luck!
