Duotrope Announcement

As of January 1, 2013, Duotrope is going to require a paid subscription. You can pay $5/month for access, or $50/year.

Full announcement here.

This will make it even harder to update here at MF since Duotrope is one of the resources I use to find paying markets. I can continue to use Ralan's, but Ralan's is generally spec fic.

We'll just see how it goes. At my current income level, I can't justify $50/year when I don't even make that much from my writing.

Quick Note

So, after a test run at Dreamwidth, I've decided to stick it out here at LJ. No, still not happy with the friends page or their attitude towards paying users, and won't be dumping any more money down the hole as long as my concerns are ignored, but neither do I have the time or patience to deal with a move.

So, there you have it. MF stays on LJ. As will I. lol

LJ's Plans

I've stuck with LJ through a lot of things, but they have some upcoming changes that may send me packing. I've already registered a personal journal over at Dreamwidth in preparation to move, but I'm involved with a few communities here at LJ that I haven't decided what I'll do with if I do move.

If you're someone who plans to stay with LJ even if they insist on some of their upcoming changes (revamped, hard to read, non-customized friend's page, modifying the paid accounts, etc) and are interested in keeping MF going, please contact me privately, and we'll talk.

Beyond that, it'll be updated haphazardly as it has been, and we'll wait and see what happens next. I'll definitely let you all know if I plan to move, close it, or just ignore it when I make the final decision.
