Hi. I'm here. It occurs to me that if I don't write in my diary, no one will notice my arrival. Though I'd heard of this place previously through other grapevines, I didn't check it out until the existence of the Salon article reminded me, so I'm technically part of the Salonslaught. But I should probably be here anyway.
I already maintain a journal on my own site. It would be convenient for me to post future journal entries in both places, but is that good for building community? It makes it easier for people to get to know me, but it lacks the exclusivity a community requires and doesn't encourage cross-diary dialog.
