Okay, so I’m a day late. What’s new?
It’s been a strange year, hasn’t it? But not altogether a bad one for hanfic. I have just a few updates to PTH today, and a few more coming very soon.
First, I’ve updated the timeline (link in the sidebar) to add in this year’s events as well as a few more specific dates I’ve uncovered from the past nineteen years. I’ll be updating the trivia page soon, as well, but I wanted to wait until I had collected a bit more data on the fandom.
Which brings me to the next thing. If you follow PTH on Tumblr, you’ll probably have seen my post about a fandom survey. It’s modeled on a tropes/preferences survey that Fansplaining hosted earlier this year. Mine is tailored to hanfic in particular, and includes some demographic questions that I think will be interesting to see the results of. It will be posted on New Years day, so check back then for a link.
Also, if you follow me on Twitter, I’ve been posting today about the changes to LiveJournal’s servers. They are now located in Russia, which is pretty damn troubling. I strongly encourage anyone who likes the journal format for posting their fic to create a DreamWidth account and import your LJ account. It takes just a few clicks to make sure your stuff is more secure, and while DW hasn’t really taken off for hanfic yet, I think this big change to LJ will see it finally catch on.
Lastly, over there in the sidebar is a Kofi button that will allow you to drop a few bucks in my Paypal — ie, “buy me a coffee.” While PTH is in no danger of shutting down and my financial situation is the most secure it’s been in years, a little extra here and there will help offset the fact that my new job is seriously cutting into my hanfic time. So if you’re feeling generous, buy me a coffee 😀
