lerdo: (Fountain of Smart)
If you're at all involved in fandom, might I politely suggest that you read this:  [livejournal.com profile] xparrot 's fan types?  I think it applies across a whole host of fandoms, but while reading it, I had a lightbulb moment specifically with regard to some of the current politics in the online fandom for Bones

And that's all I'm going to say.  Go take a look if you have five minutes; I promise it's worth the time it will take you to read it.

Participation Inequality: Lurkers vs. Contributors in Internet Communities
"In most online communities, 90% of users are lurkers who never contribute, 9% of users contribute a little, and 1% of users account for
almost all the action." 

Among other things, I think this speaks to the issue of feedback for fanworks and even the output of those fanworks.  Very interesting reading.

I found the post below  via [community profile] metafandom , and I just have to link to it because I feel like I could have written it myself.   If you're a writer, please go read it. 

Writing doesn't always feel good when I do it, but it is always, always worth the effort.

Just a few thoughts. - Just because I write a lot, and do it every day doesn't mean I like it all the time...
