What's the best way to serialize my novel online?

I wrote a novel in my twenties that I remain rather proud of, but I'm writing a more mature novel now that I'd prefer to release as my debut novel. I still feel strongly that the older novel needs a home and could attract some readership and interest for my current project.
I'm still polishing the first novel, which is why I don't just publish it as an ebook. I don't feel the need to charge for it. It's literary YA and rather dark and raw. No vampires, unfortunately.
I guess I'm looking for the equivalent of deviantart but for novelists. A total newbie zone wouldn't work; I've worked hard at polishing my craft and I don't need (or want to spend a lot of time giving) Creative Writing 101 feedback. Also it's important to me that I retain the rights to publish it elsewhere, etc.
Obviously I know that I could put it on a blog, but I already have a blog and I'm afraid it would be lost there, or on it's own. Thanks in advance.
