I've been considering creating a separate journal or a community (so I don't have to login differently) for baby things, since that's a topic that may receive more airtime in about four weeks' time :)
I don't know how much I'll write, since I don't always write about my life every day anyway, and I may have little time once she's there… on the other hand I may feel that she's the cutest thing since sliced bread and want to make sure that everyone else knows that, too.
So, in this spirit, a poll, since I like polls:
Should I make a separate journal for baby wibblings?
No, that would be completely wrong.
Should it be a normal personal journal, a community, or a shared journal?
a personal journal
a community - with closed membership and select posting access
a community - with open membership but select posting access
a community - with open membership and posting access
a shared journal
Would you read that journal/community?
Yes, I'd friend it and put it on my Default View (if I have one)
Yes, I'd friend it, but it probably wouldn't end up on Default View
No, but if you posted in pne
I'd read them here
No, and I don't want to read about that sort of thing in pne
Pictures! Some like them, some don't.
Squee baby show me the pictures!
Sure, that'd be nice
I don't care either way
Doesn't sound very appealing
Who would want to see lots of pictures of someone else's baby? It's the same picture all over every day.
Only if behind an lj-cut
Yes, but please not every day; there's only so much baby that other people want to see
The more the better!
What should I call it?
Something based on its first name
Something based on its middle name
Something that doesn't use her real name but lets people guess her sex
Something completely different
Should I write in first person, as if the child is writing, or in third person?
First person ("I")
Third person ("she" / realname)
