Because Chris asked the convo to be moved out of the redesign thread:
WebLit.Us is not meant to be a duplication of effort. It's an attempt to focus exclusively--no reviews, no writing tips--on marketing, promotion and cross-promotion, and to be a clearinghouse for same. I don't really care whether people there prefer weblit or webfic as a tag for their work; whatever you prefer, you're welcome. I chose weblit as the focus term because it encompasses more than just fiction; I wanted to share tips and techniques with poets and memoirists/essayists that don't fit under "fiction." We're all different from bloggers, and the techniques that are more likely to work with journalistic nonfiction don't necessarily work for us (not that we can't learn and adapt).
As for "webfic": I got tagged here at Orycon as a "fanfic" writer (and denied a panel credit) in part because of that term and a misunderstanding as to what it means. I haven't written fanfic in 2+ years, and if you google me, none of my fanfiction appears in the first three pages. I'm not ashamed of my fanfic background. A lot of pros still write fanfic for fun. But to have it assumed that I was only a fanfic writer because of the term webfic? Galling.
I have no aspirations to be considered anything high-falutin'. I'm a genre writer, though with books like "The Road" all of a sudden being lit'tra'ture instead of post-apocalyptic genre (which it is), I'm not even sure what literary fiction IS any more, other than stuff I don't like reading. (If I'm going to read literary fiction, I tend to gravitate to the 19th century. But that's me.)
Anyway. Bash away.
