Well, I'm Embarrassed Now
I've written about live journals here before. They are traditional journals as far as content, but they're kept on-line and the journals can open them to readers. Being on-line they have various bells and whistles--you can use little icons to indicate your mood and make it possible for others to comment on your posts.
Well, someone has started a live journal called Middle Grades Book Club
all about books for students. And what's more, more then one person can post to this journal. I think you have to have your own live journal and somehow or another you post in your live journal and this one, too. But I don't know for sure. I thought I was quite sophisticated because I blog, but live journals are a bit beyond me.
From the Middle Grades Book Club I was able to go to other live journals and have found that there is Live Journal for Young Adult Literature Lovers. There are probably many, many more.
And the NEA says no one is reading?
