Even though I'm new here, I think what they are suggesting is that myspace probably isn't the *best* way to get people to read your work.  If you just want anyone to read your story, you might get random hits, and some reads, but you probably won't get many comments on your work, and if you do, they probably won't even be substantial.  Sure someone might float by and randomly find your page, and read your work, but you aren't going to build a fan base off of it.  I know a lot of music artists have been found this way, but I can't really see authors getting acclaim from a website.  If your friends are telling you they don't want you constantly telling them that you've posted something new then it's probably not the way to go.  If you just want people to read your work and you don't care if it does anything one way or another, you might want to try something like livejournal where people are somewhat going to read, but once again that's not always the best way.  I know this might sound discouraging, but just keep trying to put your work out, and do whatever you feel is right for you.

Saying goes that we should do what we heart tells us to do.But the point is sometimes what we are doing can not cater to the current situation.To tell you the truth, my asking others to read my lyrics, works, has already annoyed a lot of people. If we fail to cater to our readers' taste, we can never set up one fan base because ppl will begin to hate us..

Zhu:

Writing is not about catering to the needs of other people, it's about writing because that's what you love to do. You can never please everyone, there will be poeple who don't like what you write and others who do. Why not just write because you love to write (and, from reading your past stories, I get the feeling that you do love to write) and let your characters tell their stories through you. Once you have written a story to the best of you ability, submit your story to an appropriate magazine, i.e. one that you have researched and read and feel your story would belong between it's pages. 

As for people becoming annoyed when you ask them to read your lyrics, stories, etc.- stop asking those people. If yo write lyrics, find some songwriters in your area to work with.  Try some open mic with them.  As for your storeis, just write and submit. 

I doubt that Steven King, James Patterson, etc. etc. write to please their fans- they simply write their novels because the story is within them and because they love what they do.

I got talked into a MySpace account. So far 90% of the friend requests I have received are from young gals who want to show off their t's and A's. None of them has any interest in writing.
