Online fandom

If there is at least one person in your life who you consider a close friend, and who you would not have met without being part of an online fandom, post this sentence in your journal.

One? They are legion! Well, a contubernium or two. (Roman geek here.)

Since we're discussing on-line fandoms here and there, mostly there (because Blake's 7 has, uniquely I gather, a fixation on printed zines with the web a rather dodgy cousin) what do fellow fans think? Should I put my stories in the Hermit library as well as my site in case I get hit by a meteorite? It's a pity there's no gen or mixed site equal to Liberated as I hate the star rating system Hermit has where readers can say how much or little they like a story. I don't have the self-esteem to cope with that.

Any other ideas? I like altariel's one of using an LJ (deadship) for her fiction. Is it worth having one anyone can post to? I know several people who don't have sites but might like to publish that way, and others could post links to their fiction.
