Creating a Welcoming Mixed Environment

diversity

Today’s topic comes from QSFer Heather Rose Jones:

We could touch on the ways labeling and categorization affect “discoverability”. And techniques that web sites, reviewers, blogs, etc can use to move beyond being “open” to the entire spectrum to being actively welcoming.

For example, a LGBT review site that has 90% M/M content and no easy way to search for the marginalized categories isn’t actively welcoming because of the extra work imposed on non-M/M readers to find their interests. This is something that even Amazon has a major problem with once you move outside the Romance categories.

So, discussion topic: as a reader actively looking for non-M/M material, what do you find most helpful in a mixed-topic site?
