Writerly Persuasions

Because I get more personal on this blog than any of my others, I've made the decision to Friends Lock most of my posts here. See below for my Friends Policy.

I'm a retired public librarian and a native New Yorker.

My Library Thing


If you'd like to read my other blogs, you can friend any or all of these syndicated feeds:

I friend folks whose LJs I enjoy reading. Most are writing related and some are real-life friends. If I friend you, I don't expect you to friend me back, but it would be cool. I do understand that not everyone enjoys reading the same things in journals.

If you friend me, I'll look at your LJ and if I find enough that I like and I think I'd enjoy reading it regularly, I'll friend you back. If I don't, please don't feel slighted. I read a lot of LJs and blogs (together, there are more than 450, though that includes photo and art blogs) and I don't add more unless I really plan to read them.

Also, I do not as a rule, do LJ cuts for my posts, regardless of the size of the post. If this would bother you, I won't be offended if you don't friend me.

Finally, as of 2012, this became a Friends Locked journal. I might or might not friend you back if you friend me. I didn't want to friends lock posts, but there are people I know in real life I don't want reading those posts. If you want to be added, leave a comment in the Guest Book entry and the reason you want to read my journal. However, I rarely update this journal. I use LJ primarily to read other journals.
