On the subject of “pimping vs not pimping”, I am going to come out and do some recycling of my own - mainly, Idol’s position.
Which is, I don’t really care either way - but if you aren’t going to pimp yourself, please pimp Idol!
Why? Because there is a lot of great writing going on here, and new readers (and potential contestants) is what keeps this all happening!
We don’t, we can’t, exist in a vacuum. The more people who discover what is happening here - from you, the greater the chance that they will find someone else they love - and the greater the chance that someone else will send in someone who loves your stuff!
That’s how it works.
I don’t care if it’s a rec list, or simply a “go check everyone out!” - it’s all good, and more to the point, it’s all for the greater good! ;)
After all, part of being the winner tends to involve being the Ambassador of your Season of Idol. (Well, them and the Spirit) So, why not get started? :D
In other news - the new topics are up: http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/583847.html
So, you should probably get started on those!
