LJ and organization

Is there ever a good way to call into work and say you can't come in today because you're bemused and have to stay home and write?

I didn't think so.

Anyhow, today's question is about fanfic-only LJs vs multi-purpose LJs. Some people, like me, post their fanfic mixed in all higgledy-piggledy with their other entries. Other people have special LJs for their fanfic posting. (Some people even have different LJs for different fandoms -- I can only imagine how many I would have to keep up in that case.)

I prefer to keep all my postings together -- my LJ is me, whether it's fic or blather or brilliant meta more blather.

On the reading side of things, I prefer it when people post their fic in their regular LJs. I don't read a lot of fanfic these days. When I do, it's because something on my friends list caught my eye. I don't feel comfortable friending fic-only journals because then I would feel like I had made a commitment to read and comment on, if not all, then most of the fic that dropped there. I don't feel that way about the fic that's just mixed in with regular posts.

I'm interested to hear your opinion on fic-only journals, both from a writer's and a reader's perspective. Do they work better for you? Do you keep several journals for different fandoms? Do you wish I would split my fic and blather up into two journals?
