Dictionary Definition: Laura: Also known as "Solveig", her internet pseudonym, this female specimen of Homo Sapiens founded the Literary Cabinet world. One can spot "Laura," by the fun she has grading papers and drinking coffee, with triple coffee consumption ever since she quit smoking. Like another species, Homo Sapiens Zarasahanous, she enjoys picking at the extreme Twilight fans. This specimen is particularly fond of procrastinating, as most of the other species of the Literary Cabinet Universe are.

|Subject: LC Promotion Sat Dec 05, 2009 5:02 pm|| |
You may remember that the last week has been full of little discussions here and there about enlarging our community. This is probably necessary to keep this place up and running - we need more input, which in essence means more people.
I am aware of the "invitation-only" policy we had back in the beginning, and then, it made sense. But I also believe that these days we might need a little more diversity. Therefore, I would like to ask all of you to help promote the LC to increase the number of active members we have.
Some steps you might want to consider taking:
- Invite people you know.
- Include the link in your profiles on Facebook, Myspace and other sites.
- If you have a Twitter account, don't be afraid to talk about it there.
- Think about where in your area there might be people who are interested in coming here: schools, colleges, libraries etc. Find out if they have a notice board of some sort, and put up notices. (Don't forget to ask if that's ok first!)
- When answering questions on Y!A, if it has at all been covered around here, put the link as reference.
(If you have any other ideas, feel free to post them or take them!
If history is doomed to repeat itself, bring on the beheadings.
