my fic recs are now in del.icio.us

I found myself leaving tabs open and saving bookmarks, because it's so hard to rec things properly. It just wasn't getting done :-( So now my recs are all on del.icio.us/msilverstar, and I have a feed here that you can subscribe to: msil_fanfic_rec . I post there in fits and starts, but it's better than waiting.

Because I am A Librarian, my recs and tags are structured and organized! Anyone who wants is welcome to snag these ideas.

The titles have the fandom, title, author, whether it's AU and/or a series, and the pairing, generally first names only.

The description field is way too short -- there's always more to say -- but I'll live with it.

I fiddled around a lot to figure out how I wanted to organize tags. I started with author names but that was too unwieldy. So it's fandom, lotrips-pairing, posting-date, ratings and misc. The posting date I just use posted-year-month. It's not great sorting order but it works for humans ;-)

Their space-delimited tag terms are just silly, but it means that innocents looking for Elijah Wood don't bump into my fic recs.

In the tags field, I put in the fandom pairing tag or tags, with the names in order by point of view, though not so much for threesomes and more. Rating, then posting date, then miscellaneous stuff, other fandom names, etc. I end up with the most common terms, like RPS, slash, fanfiction, LOTR RPS.

Thank you so much for this. You are an angel! As a fellow librarian, I appreciate the careful cataloguing. And I salute it being used for porn. Bless!

Hee! I didn't know you are one too. I haven't actually worked in a library since I graduated, but I still feel very much part of the community.

That is fabulous! A woman after my own heart - I've just spent ages uploading, editing, and tagging all of my school papers. :) Organization is so satisfying, isn't it?

Ah, brilliant. I'm starting slowly, slowly to add fandom stuff to mine, as right now it's mainly general interest sites I like, but it's del.icio.us/polyglotte85 if you want to add me to your network. I had to pick a generic name so that it could work for fandom and nonfandom people. God, I have way too many aliases!

You betcha! I have well-established net identities that I keep separate from fandom, as I don't want my consulting clients confronted with my porn ;-)
