I really dislike it when you go to an author's profile on any site and they have absolutely no bookmarks, no faves, no nothing. Just what they wrote. Why do I dislike it? Because....share what you find. If you love something, bookmark it, fave it, so the rest of us can find it too!

Geez, spread a little love, will ya and stop hoarding! I read your stuff, and I comment (and that's rare these days. Most readers just zip on without letting you know if they liked or hated something -- Facebook mentality: Can't love it or diss it, I'm gone). I know the awards try to fix this, but don't get me started on that. LOL.

It's funny to me though the more they talk about networking and social media, the more insular people get.

Go fig.

I'll keep that in mind. I think I have favourites on mine--we're talking FF.net, right?

No, it's okay. This is a valid thing, and if it makes a difference to you, it likely means something to other people, too. Though admittedly, views haven't been a problem for me, years after posting it, I'm still getting feedback. Really need to work on the second one, which has stalled as I've moved on to other things--but I think people deserve to know what happened. Also, I can't write the third until I write the second, but now I'm rambling.

Anyway, I haven't checked to see if my favourites are displayed or not. I'll do that next time I log in, probably. The only thing I can offer there is that... depending up on what I'm writing, I may not be comfortable sharing some of what I've read and enjoyed, especially if it's from another fandom. There's at least one Tales of Vesperia story that is pretty shocking, that I don't know what readers of Doctor Who and Burn Notice would make of, and I'm not sure if I'm comfortable being judged on that, if that makes sense.

... I have no bookmarks or faves on AO3 or FF.net. >_>

I used to save a ton of links to fics on Delicious before it went all arse-end-up, and I had that Delicious list linked in my profile. But now it's gooone. Rargh.

HEE. :D You don't sound like a harpy. You just reminded me of my long-ass bookmarks list.

Well, Delicious is still there, but it's so screwed-up now it may as well not be. I transferred all of my bookmarks to a different bookmarking sites, deleted my Delicious account, and then... the other site went belly-up. -_-

... And now I want to go back and see if they fixed all the splodey issues they had however many months ago when it was bought out. *goes off to see*
