So we all know that RealReview is dying a bit of a slow death here from lack of involvement. All the site really needs is some new members, and the only way to get that is to advertise.
So, might I ask all of you who still read here to advertise RealReview on your own personal LJs, and ask your F-list to drop by and check out the site? This can be super-casual; all we really want is for people to click in and have a look around. Those interested in getting involved will do so, and those who aren't will wander away again with no permanent injuries. :-)
I plan to do this myself, and am listing the message that I'll be posting for my flist below. Anyone who wants to steal this bit of text is welcome to do so - the more people who advertise, the healthier RealReview will be!
There's an LJ community called realreview that needs you! Particularly if you love Harry Potter fanfiction and especially if you love voicing your opinion! :-D
realreview is a community that gives (as the name implies) "real" reviews. Writers post their Harry Potter fanfiction there, and the community members give them a polite but honest assessment of the work with suggestions for how to improve it. The point of the community is to provide construction criticism to writers in order to help them improve. It's a great idea, and I've enjoyed being involved in it.
If you have a fanfic that you'd like a few objective opinions on, or if you just like helping fellow writers to improve their skills, then please consider clicking through to realreview. Have a look around, read a few stories and maybe leave a comment or two. If you like the look of the place, then please friend realreview! The community is too quiet for its own good right now, and really could use your input.
Thanks for your attention, and I hope to see you at realreview!
