I just received (well, just opened - I'm constantly forgetting to check my associated email) an invitation to join wellsphere.com, in their "Pregnancy and Fertility Community" - in the antonyms section of the thesaurus, I'm thinking. Apparently, what this entails is that my content will be republished on their site in various places (I maintain the rights to it), and I get a cool badge for my blog that says I participate (that sounds like fun). I don't know if there's anything else they would want me to do, or whether it's OK that I remain anonymous - I have written back to ask.
I take the invitation as a huge compliment. Among other things, I was apparently chosen based on the frequency of my posts and the quality of my writing (!). I guess the fact that I can't shut up and neurotically re-edit the content of posts if I didn't express things quite right is a benefit in some contexts! (Note: that's why, if you ever go nuts and read a post twice, you may notice that the wording shifts a little in the first day or two. That doesn't explain anything about why my posts still may make no sense, though...)
Anyway, my question for anyone reading is this: what do you think? Obviously it would mean increased exposure, but how much is too much? Will I draw unsightly trolls? (I already moderate comments, so that might not be such a burden.) Has anyone else done this or a similar forum? What did you think?
Thanks in advance for all shared wisdom!
