|Majestic: Issue #17
||Sunday, March 23, 2003
By Chrispian H. Burks
Wow! So much has happened since the last issue of Majestic. Aside from the real world trying it's
best to interrupt well laid plans, things are going pretty well. Things are getting back on track
now and we've got some goodies to prove it. There have been quite a few new members sign up and
I'd like to say welcome to you all!
The server move went off with only slight bugs here and there. Thanks to everyone who helped catch
and squash them all. Things are back to normal. This issue of Majestic is the first one sent out
by our new mailing system, which is saving us $25 bucks a month, and the new server is also $25 cheaper
First off, we finally launched
our new forums at www.writingforums.com. We wanted
to offer a place for authors from all over the web to come and talk and not just the members
of Lit.Org site. We are building more writing and reading related sites and a central place
for everyone to get together just made sense.
We also moved our portal project to it's new home at www.litscene.com.
Again, we felt this resource would benefit from being on it's own allowing it to gain exposure. There are
already over 2500 resources listed and growing. If your looking for a writing related resource you should
stop by and check it out. If you run a site that writers might find useful you should go add your link!
If you have a PDA or other mobile device and would like to subscribe to Lit.Org on the go, just point your
device to http://www.lit.org/go and you can get the latest stories, poems,
features and news while your out and about. We will soon be offering even more ways to get your reading fix!
include content from Lit.Org on your own web site, AIM profile, or news reader. We are working on new Premium accounts
which will give you much more control over how things work at Lit.Org like no ads, firstname.lastname@example.org email forwarders, customized
alerts, private messages, auto validation and much more. Look for these changes in the coming weeks ahead.
As we continue to add new features and look to the future of our little site, one of our main areas of interest will
be in growing our content offerings. To that end, I've got several original publications that will be announced soon.
We are also adding the "Lit.Org Weekly Reader" which will feature the best writings we can find around the web. We will
be launching Book Watch, which will offer news, reviews and information on great books to read. And this is just the
short list of what we have planned. I'm very excited and I hope everyone loves this stuff as much as we do!

also got a quick, easy form you can use to tell people about Lit.Org and give them
a chance to get their own copy every month! Help us out
and tell your friends!
