Journal Policy Update

Since I'm going to be a parent soon, I've decided that it's more responsible for me to take everything in this journal except for fic, picspams, graphics (i.e. fannish stuff) and make it friends-only.  That doesn't mean I think my other entries are in any way special.  However, they are personal.  If you've been lurking anonymously and find that you no longer have access to particular entries, that's why.  I would leave all my Wednesday Smiles posts unlocked, too, but I often post personal tidbits in those.  So going forward, those are going to be friends-locked as well.

Anyone is welcome to add me as a "friend."  If you like my fic and fannish minutiae, I'm flattered.  However, unless you comment, I may not notice that you've added me.  Please note that I don't automatically add everyone back.  As I said, I sometimes post about personal/"real life" things that I am simply not comfortable with silent strangers knowing about or having show up on Google searches.  If we have some common interests, you ask to be added, we interact a bit, and get to know each other better, I'll happily add you back.  None of this would be necessary if I created a separate journal for fannish stuff, but that seems like way too much of a hassle; I have enough trouble staying on top of one LJ!

I sometimes defriend people; it's not personal, and it's never intended to create drama.  If we just don't interact, I don't feel comfortable with essentially having my underwear hanging out there for everyone to see.  *g*  Bottomline:  this is my journal, and I have to do what makes me feel most comfortable and most safe.

Any questions, let me know.  :)
