I'm aiming to do a weekly or bi-weekly newsletter at [community profile] history, collecting posts about (guess what?) history, updates on history carnivals, and links to history sites. (I think I'm not doing one this week because I'm busy with BADD instead.)

I plan to cross-post my list, the one that caused so much really loud wank. They seem to have decided to freeze me out, which is a shame but whatevah.

At this point, I may just post my listings to [profile] lotr_all_fic in an attempt to avoid fragmentation. Not a whole lot of us over here yet.

OMG I have so many to do for April. *quails*

Already moved both mine over and started crossposting! I set up the mod account tonight with an invite, so this weekend I'll start using that. Plus, I was able to tweak [personal profile] murklins scripts to post DW links correctly. Yay!

\o/ I wish every script I'd ever written was so easy to adapt for crossposting!

crossposting scripts

[personal profile] hermitsoul 2009-05-02 05:42 am (UTC)(link)
I'll admit, I cheated a bit - you had scripted in posting to greatestjournal and I just c/p DW info in it's place. ;)

I crosspost the same issue to all three - I was going to drop IJ, but a few people read over there and it's easy enough to crosspost.

Is this by any chance a delicious -> journal script? If so, may I have a link?

I bought [personal profile] murklins at a Sweet Charity auction a few years back and she created the scripts for me. The script collate the delicious links into the actual newsletter post. I don't know how I managed without them, they are very, very awesome. I don't know how adaptable my scripts are, I know she needed some specifics from me to pull them together.

[community profile] dreamwidth_chronicle is still sorting itself out. I hope we'll be really, really ready to go by the end of the week.

I have a pairing-specific newsletter on lj, [livejournal.com profile] hpgw_otp, but since most of our readers haven't moved, there's no real reason to bring the newsletter over here at this time.

That said, I notice that there's already [community profile] metafandom and [community profile] daily_snitch over here! Yay!!

Heck, we've been crossposting for weeks now. :-)

You can't use DW's crossposting feature to crosspost to comms, correct?

I don't believe so. By "crossposting" I just mean "posting multiply."

I assumed so, but in case I'd missed something… :o)
