Well, what could I do but prove to my donors that I was putting their generosity to good use?
Okay, so there isn't much there yet, but I am still learning to navigate. My next goal is to sort out how I am going to handle the blog publishing side. My goal is to be able to still give you guys the LiveJournal blog you know and love, while duplicating un-filtered entries over there for the public at large to enjoy. I intend to get the whole movie review archive up and running over there - the Blogspot duplicates have been quietly generating GoogleAd traffic for me for years without my even needing to advertise them; time to bring that eyeball-attracting potential home.
Obviously the simplest way to do that is to just double-post, but I am hoping I can configure some widget to handle it for me. Investigations will proceed. Once that's accomplished, I will probably just go fully Friends Only on this journal, direct others to the website, and only add to the Friends list here once I have gotten to know people.
I am excited.
