Thanks For the Invites!

I am currently in computer hell right now.

It appears I need to get my MSN browser fully supported, not a term I relish, from my aged and gravity plagued point of view, but one that is necessary, I'm afraid. Then I can sit back and bask in the sunshine of all these friendships that everyone is kindly offering.

Ezines VS Print Magazines...Any Preference?

I ask this of just about all the writers I meet and I was wondering what the people here will say?

Do you prefer one over the other?


Which format brings the most recognition and the most feedback?
