    [ Multiple threads merged ]

    As you may have noticed threads posted in certain forums show up automatically on the front page and if a new visitor to the site came to front page and saw a message that is just a link to another site, they are likely to just interpret it as 'spam' and move on.

    Perhaps a signature link would be a tad better? To encourage discussion about your short story, perhaps posting an excerpt from it here at this site instead of just a blind link?

    yes. i'll almost certainly put an excerpt here but im sort of preoccupied now. i don't want you thinking i just sign up to forums to pump my blog or anything like that. (just kidding)
    thanks for the suggestion
