Livejournal community first... mailing list second.

The multi-author blog and forum/bbs aren't appealing to me just because it's yet another site I need to remember to visit. I check email (usually at least once a day, though sometimes I forget to on weekends) and check LJ quite a few times a day.

Livejournal has it drawbacks because all usernames are visible in the members list and the community is visible on ones userpage. So if one happens to be part of a group trying to escape a bunch of drama-llamas by LJ just isn't suited.

The blog would have RSS feeds so one wouldn't have to visit it specifically. However, it would have to be run privately in order to control who had access to it.

Everything has its pros and cons. Just trying to see which wins out. ^o^

Yeah, and there are other reasons not to go with LJ too. >_>

I'm just lazy and hate trying to remember to visit sites.

Mailing lists just feel weird nowadays.

Actually, I'd change my answer to other. I'd prefer an LJ community. I don't think I'd join anything else...I have to many things to keep up with as it is and LJ is just really, really convenient and the best way for me to keep up with things.
