At one point I applied for an ISBN-counterpart number for subscriptions (ISSN?) but I never followed through with it. I did get a listing in one of the first yellow pages for the Internet, back in 1995 or so when the Internet was small enough to do that. I announced it on the CONLANG list. But its not like I ever had money to spend marketing it. If someone gave me a budget and said "hey, make this profitable", I'd laugh but take there money and buy some ads in some RPG zines and writing zines. Can't think of how to spend a marketing budget very effectively though -- its not like you can rent a mailing list of conlangers though. I did once consider a classified in F&SF -- it was pretty cheap, but again, my wife is grumpy enough I spend $25/month on the site and $35/year on the domain name, so... When the newsletter started, I announced it here and in a couple Compuserve fora. > Or is there anything > beyond Lycos or Excite to "find" electronic journals for the random > reader? Nowadays people just look for web pages. Unfortunately I don't use conlang or constructed language a lot in the text, so that probably hurts my chances of being found.
