[poll] Separate baby journal?

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?

Yes, definitely
1(2.9%)
Yes
3(8.8%)
I don't care
5(14.7%)
No
11(32.4%)
No, that would be completely wrong.
0(0.0%)
It's up to you
14(41.2%)

Should it be a normal personal journal, a community, or a shared journal?

a personal journal
15(57.7%)
a community - with closed membership and select posting access
2(7.7%)
a community - with open membership but select posting access
3(11.5%)
a community - with open membership and posting access
1(3.8%)
a shared journal
5(19.2%)

Would you read that journal/community?

Yes, I'd friend it and put it on my Default View (if I have one)
15(45.5%)
Yes, I'd friend it, but it probably wouldn't end up on Default View
2(6.1%)
No
1(3.0%)
No, but if you posted in pne I'd read them here
14(42.4%)
No, and I don't want to read about that sort of thing in pne, either.
1(3.0%)

Pictures! Some like them, some don't.

Squee baby show me the pictures!
4(11.4%)
Sure, that'd be nice
3(8.6%)
I don't care either way
2(5.7%)
Doesn't sound very appealing
1(2.9%)
Who would want to see lots of pictures of someone else's baby? It's the same picture all over every day.
0(0.0%)
Only if behind an lj-cut
2(5.7%)
Yes, but please not every day; there's only so much baby that other people want to see
0(0.0%)
The more the better!
0(0.0%)

What should I call it?

1(4.2%)
4(16.7%)
11(45.8%)
Something based on its first name
4(16.7%)
Something based on its middle name
0(0.0%)
Something that doesn't use her real name but lets people guess her sex
0(0.0%)
Something gender-neutral
4(16.7%)
Something completely different
0(0.0%)

Any other suggestions?

Should I write in first person, as if the child is writing, or in third person?

First person ("I")
4(12.9%)
Third person ("she" / realname)
27(87.1%)

Tickybox?

Tickybox!
7(25.9%)
Mongoose.
