So far the biggest problem, first day here? The site will not allow me to cut and paste content from my existing blog into this site. Tried from a PC and from my Mac. No go. This is a problem, suggesting, among other things propritary issues, non-portability of content, and more. NOT a good sign. I've sent off a "help" request, so we'll see what if any response I get. This an important capability for those of us who write and review elsewhere, even in a small way. Hopefully the response won't be in either corporate or computer speak and the problem can be easily addressed, without, I might add, the user -- me in this instance -- being asked to modify my settings or any such nonsense. Come on people, this should be simple.
So... I'm here. We'll see if I stay. As a bookseller in an Indendent Bookstore, I reluctantly cancelled my account with Goodreads the day of their obseqious press release announcing their absorption. There I was "a librarian"; contributing "content" in the form of reviews, author biographies, pictures, etc. I took as much with me as I could when I left. Here's hoping this will be a new platform -- not just yet another tool for gathering me unto the cold bosom of the Bezoshemoth.
As I said, we'll see.
