  • Betsy Vera created a page called BEDLAM: About Writing – Beta Reading in 1998. Betsy’s page was notable for several reasons. Early on, in the late 1990s, this page was important in terms of defining how to beta read as the page contained examples of various beta reading jobs, giving different perspectives on how people actually went about the process. The story being critiqued and used as an example was from the Buffy: The Vampire Slayer community but the site was referenced in such communities as the Star Wars, Star Trek, Gilmore Girls and X-Men fan fiction communities.

On January 24, 2008, misskitten on FanLib said of this community,

It may be for some fandsoms, but not all. Some of my fandoms are well-repressented on LJ, but I wouldn’t say any of them are the main channel for that fandom’s fanwork. For Firefly I would say the main channel is, for Gilmore Girls I would say and BWR are the main channels. Firefly seems well-repressented on LJ, at least to my impression, though I’m not an LJ user, but I can’t say GG has that strong a presence on LJ, at least not that big a group… [53]
