Heather, my 2cs … and those are somewhat worthless South African cents
Firstly, I wouldn’t over think too much. There is certainly no Community Police Force that will issue fines for poor Category choice. Sometimes there are more appropriate choices and the Mods will just move and explain.
So either in your LL or in AVOYP would be fine.
I recently made a choice, smart or otherwise, to start a topic in #community-hub:what-are-you-learning. I decided to have a crack at some of the first steps in Blues Lead play (string-bending, vibrato, and a few licks). I shared my immediate plan and have to date posted up to progress videos.
I did receive feedback, much as Toby said, from a few of the old regulars that know me and have been supporting me from my first baby steps. That was sufficient for my needs. I may have received more feedback if posted in AVOYP. Posting in my LL, as some people suggested might be a better choice, would probably not get more attention and comments.
At some point I will record some noodling, attempting to use what I am learning. I am most likely to post that in AVOYP.
WRT LL: As Mari said, your LL is really your own and you can use it in whatever way you want to. My LL is more of a Journal. I update it periodically, mostly to reflect on what I’ve been doing and achieved since the last published episode. It also contains some standard content to link people to my recordings, share my gear inventory, and links to every episode of the journal (should anybody be interested in reading about my adventure).
The new Community platform has now been running about a month. And from where I sit it is way busier, many more posts, than the old Forum. That is great in many respects but does mean that it has become beyond me to read and reply to every post every day.
Different people will develop their own habits in participation. I am gravitating towards giving priority to posts in LLs and AVOYP and then things that catch my eye for whatever reason, perhaps the topic is interesting or the poster is somebody I am following (to a degree).
