As there is currently a lot of ship-jumping going on, I thought it might be helpful to start a list that links LJ and DW identities, for those who wish to be found by old LJ friends. I've set one up below in order to achieve this. Please comment in the following format and I'll add you to the list.

"[LJ identity] is [DW identity]"

Hence, for myself, this is:

"nanila is nanila"

The list will be sorted by LJ identity. If your username starts with a non-alphabetical character, I will put it in the "numerical/symbol" section.

A )
B )
C )
D )
E )
F )
G )
H )
I )
J )
K )

Q )

Z )

Assuming this post spreads far and wide, it could become a useful resource! Please feel free to link it. It is now a sticky post on this community (thank you, mods).

Other Dreamwidth communities that may help you either to find new friends or reconnect with old ones include [community profile] addme (very active right now) and [community profile] dreamchasers (inactive, but archives include user information on other services such as AO3 and Tumblr, which this list does not).

Current status : Caught up as of Mon 17 July at 11:16 BST. Updating again in the evening of the next day at the earliest. If you find any mistakes in this list, please let me know. I'm working off the comment notifications I get from this post, so if you reply here I will definitely see it.

Country: US
Subscription/Access Policy: Friend away! I'm always looking for new friends to talk to. As for access, I grant almost everyone that subscribes to me. If I ever lock something it'll be something really personal and might be trigger-y. I will always warn if I do post something of that nature. There's no pressure to grant me access back.

Fannish Interests: Gosh, okay, I like a lot of things. But I also need to catch up on a lot of things. That's my problem.

I watch a lot of tv. Right now I'm watching shadowhunters and deciding if I want to catch up on Teen Wolf or not. My love for Scott McCall is enternal though. 

I really enjoy pokemon,  digimon,  yugioh,  sailor moon, power rangers, tf&f series, harry potter, kingdom hearts, and classic spn. all of those were my fandoms before I ever knew what fandom meant. i am casually into new doctor who but Ten was my first doctor and my favorite era. I'm always there for the companions the most though and I love bill potts so much. i love sherlock holmes adaptations but i gotta say my favorite is elementary. i'm also into low energy video games so pretty much anything nintendo and the sims. I'm a little obsessed with the sims and the fandom it has on youtube. just a little. Superheroes are cool too! I like the mcu and dcu but i haven't watched all of it yet bc reasons. Omg star wars is a big one lately too. and the new Star Trek and hopefully the new series!! as for cartoons steven universe is like the best thing that ever happened to me probably. aaaand books!! gosh do i hope to actually start to read books. The last full thing I read that wasn't fanfiction was the hunger games.

sp in summary i love anything cheesy, ridiculous, and about friendship :D 

I Like To Post About: honestly? cute animals. cats especially. no but i'll post about all the things i care about and I might to do reaction posts to show or movie etc. I hope to at least post fic or a rec or just journaling in general! I'm trying to find my place in dreamwidth after being on tumblr for so long now. 

About Me/Other Info: I'm an ace nonbinary (she/they pronouns) lesbian. I'm autistic, mentally ill, and have chronic pain & illness. I'm infp, capricorn, and a hufflepuff. 

hurt/comfort is my whole life. It's like my one true kink. I love reading it, writing it, having discussions about it, reading meta about, you get it. It's my jam. 

I'll mostly comment on stuff for a while probably. I have a strict rule that is if I see an entry/read a fic/etc I comment on it. <3

Describe yourself in five sentences or less: I'm fairly new here, but not new to fandom. I write fanfiction and I fandom-hop without rhyme or reason. I'm currently in a lot of small fandoms, and I love to add more, so feel free to try to get me obsessed with your favorite fandom. IRL, I'm a sleep scientist who doesn't sleep enough. I talk about my girlfriend a lot.

Top 5 Fandoms: 
I'm going to cheat, but in my defense, I am in so many fandoms...
Small video game fandoms (Oxenfree, Stardew Valley, and Primordia)
Boku No Hero Academia
The Goblin Emperor
Harry Potter (always... never hop away from this one)
Haikyuu!!


I mostly post about: Fanfiction, logic puzzles, fandom things. I'll probably start posting about my life at some point, but those won't be public

I rarely post about: politics, specifics about my work.

My last three posts were about: A logic puzzle and some fanfiction exchange/challenge stuff.

How often do you post?: Not much right now - I'm new here. But I imagine I'll be posting at least once every week, if not more.

How about commenting?: I'm good about commenting when I'm feeling social, but sometimes I don't have the energy. I like making friends and being friendly though, so I try.

Describe yourself in five sentences or less: Aquarius, INFP, dog person, never completely outgrew my goth phase but sometimes wear pink. I write fanfics, mostly for exchanges. I like monsters and space. In the real, basic, practical, flesh-and-blood, real-world I am: female (she/her), Christian, bisexual, socialist-leaning, a teacher, and from the southern United States. I do not do well with excessive sunlight, pineapple, disparaging remarks about religion (any, including my own), or people trying to make others feel bad about things that make them happy.

Top 5 Fandoms:

- Doctor Who
- Avatar: The Last Airbender
- Like three anime in one interconnected pile (Steins;Gate, Puella Magi Madoka Magic & Fate)
- MCU
- ??? Carmilla? It really depends on the day. I love Wonder Woman right now.


I mostly post about: ... Dear Author Letters. So far. 95% of what I do on the internet is fandom-related. I hope to keep talking about fandom in a responsive, more connected community than tumblr has provided in years. I hope to rewatch some fandoms I've lost touch with soon, though I will be starting work in a few weeks. Fandom with a dash of my daily personal monologue.

I rarely post about: Political or religious stuff outside a positive context.

My last three posts were about: I'm writing a fandom autobiography to get in the habit of posting on my dreamwidth.

How often do you post?: It's hard to say since I'm new to this. Most days this week. If you want to check out how I sort of blog you can check my tumblr's blogging tag.

How about commenting?: I believe in commenting with my whole heart. I really want to establish some friendships and conversationships here. When it comes to fic, I won't promise I'll read everything, but if I read it, I will always comment.

A GIF to describe how your day has been so far: Really uneventful day, so here's a gif that shows my overall personality. (I overidentify with Carmilla oops.)

Generally most of the books by Joy Fielding and Mary Higgins Clark.

Music: I love music and I listen to almost every genre. Classical, rock, metal, ambient, alternative, music of all eras (especially 80s/90s. Those funny disco songs always crack me up lol), blues, even country, German Schlager, eurodance. I know no shame when it comes to music.

Other Info: I was sorted into Slytherin. The hat let me decide between that and Hufflepuff, so I told him that I liked green better. :D I'm an ISFJ. I love nature and animals. Long walks in the nature make me feel all happy and content. I could watch grazing horses or cows forever. I have four cats and wish I had a dog again. I have a sweet tooth. I love bodyweight excercises. I like to laugh until I cry and my belly starts to hurt.

My journal is 90% fannish stuff. You've probably noticed that I'm a slash fan. I also have a couple of incestuous ships. Just saying in case you didn't know and react shocked. I don't hate on ships.

I'm looking for other like-minded (fannish) people with whom I can squee and, if the occasion arises, have insightful discussions with. LJ was my main residence since 2006. But with the rescent ToS fiasco I don't feel at home there anymore. So I've decided to move into my DW and make myself comfy here. All that is missing is you. So, let's be friends! :)

I love reaction gifs, so I wrap this up with one, just because.

Languages: English, Gaidhlig, German, French, (a teeny tiny bit of Hungarian)

Describe yourself in five sentences or less: I'm a geek of the excessive book reading/movie watching/fanfiction writing kind. I'm particularly fond of science-fiction but I'm highly suggestible towards other areas of potential fannish glee. I'm learning a minority language. I consider people to be beautiful regardless of gender and believe everything to be better with penguins. Also a purveyor of sarcasm...

Top 5 Fandoms:
Currently?
Leverage
Ghostbusters
Rivers of London
Wolf 359
MCU

I mostly post about: Books, movies, podcasts, music and random stuff happening in my life. Fic and meta as the muse takes me. I also enjoy photography and fibrearts so that too.

I rarely post about: work, politics, anything that might identify me in meatspace.

My last three posts were about: Music mostly, I'm doing a daily music meme this month, other than that, my weekly reading post and a to-do list!

How often do you post?: At least weekly but sometimes more than that, depends how busy/stressed I am in RL.

How about commenting?: If I have something to say and the energy to say it I'll comment. I read daily but sometimes I don't have the spoons for interacting.

A long time ago in a galaxy far far away I used to blog on a Livejournal that is no doubt long since deleted and purged. I can't even remember the name of it. Randomly this morning I started having fits of nostalgia, came online and discovered Dreamwidth. And here I am!

Describe yourself in five sentences or less: I'm a Sagittarius born in the year of the dog, an ESTJ, a Ravenclaw and a geek. I studied Psychology but have never put it to use and instead I work in a bank. I love alternative music and grunge, my music tastes are still in the late 90s/early 2000s. I love science fiction and superheroes, Star Trek and Star Wars both, DC and MCU both (but only the shows/movies, I'm not a comic book reader). Some of my other favourite things include steampunk, carousels, zoos & safari parks, ripped jeans, pretty dresses, staying up all night, ghost stories, fairy tales, drinking tea, singing badly and collecting cushions and blankets

Top 5 Fandoms: Stargate
Doctor Who
DC shows/movies
MCU shows/movies
Harry Potter

It's been a good decade since I've participated in fandom and I'm hoping to get back into writing fanfiction

I mostly post about: Anything and everything that goes through my head

I rarely post about: I would say it's unlikely you will find hatred, bigotry, politics, war, religion... that kind of thing

My last three posts were about: My need for quiet/stillness, starting to learn German and how I don't understand selfie culture

How often do you post?: so far, daily

How about commenting?: If I have something to say, I will. I like making and getting comments

Describe yourself in five sentences or less: Complicated, analytical, lover of tea and food that doesn't make me regret it. Open-minded introvert with trust issues. Cats are awesome family members. :) Also, there may be snark.

Top 5 Fandoms: I'm not active in any fandom groups. I just enjoy my escapeist fantasy, sci-fi and "light" (as in, "I still want to sleep at night") horror. I'm usually not fussy as long as the story is good and the storyworld is consistent in its approach to things.

I mostly post about: Whining about life, cooking, random things.

My last three posts were about: hairstyle bitching, sewing project results and possible employment

How often do you post? It's random, and depends on my mood. New stuff is sometimes filtered and all my old posts are private because I just recently moved two LJ's to one DW, and I really need to re-do my filters before dropping old posts in specific filters.

Hello! Like many people, I'm a longtime Livejournaler who's working on making the switch over to Dreamwidth. But I've had my journal there since 2001--that's pretty much my entire adult life! Change is hard! In order to help me shift my focus over here instead of over there, I'd like to see if I can establish a more active group of DW-friends. Let me tell you a little bit about myself and my journal.

About me:
My name is Katie, I'm 38, I'm queer, and I'm female. I'm a writer and writing tutor by profession (I write fiction and book reviews; I tutor high school students and beginning creative writers). I grew up in the Hudson Valley in New York State, and currently live in Philadelphia. I live in a very old house with my girlfriend of eighteen years and our two cats. I love to read (favorite writers include E.M. Forster, Marilynne Robinson, Virginia Woolf, Pat Barker, Ursula K. Le Guin, George Saunders, etc). I also like cooking, baking, canning, and food preservation of all kinds; hiking and bird watching; gardening; swimming; watching baseball.... I'm a rather typical introvert and lead a fairly quiet life. I drink entirely too much tea.

About my journal:
I began my LJ as a reading journal, and still often post informal book reviews and thoughts on whatever I happen to be reading. In addition to books, I often post about food and the projects I undertake in the kitchen. Sometimes I use my journal to track goals. Sometimes I write about the things that are going on in my life. Rarely (very rarely) I share my writing. Sometimes I post about art, or the creative process, or a quotation that caught my attention. I tend to post about once or twice a week. There are often photos.

Something you might want to know:
I'm in the habit of unfriending folks if, after giving it a fair chance, it doesn't seem like we're clicking. I'd love it if you'd do the same, but if this is a problem for you, you may want to think twice about adding me. Also, I will admit that I'm not the world's best commenter. My intentions to comment are good and I do make an effort, but the follow-through is not always there. Just so you know.

If you think we'd hit it off, say hello! I'm looking forward to meeting people!

Describe yourself in five sentences or less: I’m a fairly easy going introvert. Right now I’m a caregiver for my parents who have the same neurodegenerative disorder (one advanced, one early stages + cancer survivor. I buy lotto tickets now!) I’m in the process of enrolling into a teacher preparation program for elementary education. Sometimes caregiving is an isolating and lonely experience and boy, as the years go by I just really miss the earlier years of LJ when I met people from different places, and I haven’t found a similar sense of camaraderie on other social network platforms (besides Ravelry; IG was great until FB had to go and ruin it!)

Top 5 Fandoms: Gravity Falls


I mostly post about: Can’t say I’m all that exciting. I expect to post what you'd find in a journal- what I’ve been up to, events in my life, my family, share music and maybe links to articles, and so on. I love the fiber arts. I knit & crochet, spin & dye (beginner) and dabble in cross stitch. I garden, and I have several pets. I love getting out for a walk or hike in nature. As I said above, I’m pretty easy going.

My last three posts were about: Two (not-so-)daily picture posts!

How often do you post? How about commenting? I’ve set a goal to post a public daily picture to keep myself active on DW. Ideally, I’ll post weekly, but it could be more or less. :) I try to comment here and there.

Describe yourself in five sentences or less: Right now, I´m in a re-education for store man (hope it’s the right description) January next year I´m finally done and can start to work.
I´m pretty open minded and almost always straight forward about what I´m thinking, even if people have problems with it. I´m a gamer (right now Xbox but want to switch to PS4), love reading fanfiction and books, movies.

 

Top 5 Fandoms:  Harry Potter, Supernatural, Star Trek, Assassin Creed

I mostly post about:  Daily things that happened, my feelings and reviews for shows and movies I watched, 

My last three posts were about:  My first here was today about shitty purchase on ebay.

How often do you post?
It´s differ, sometimes once I week or more but when I don’t feel like it and nothing happens then less.

How about commenting?
  When I can connect with the post then of course

I have never been one for 'online' or social media. The internet for me has always been a useful tool but nothing more than that. Until now. Last week, I broke my leg. A displaced fracture. I had to have an operation to put pins in it, and naturally, I went and had a reaction to the anaesthetic because if you're going to do something, do it properly! So now I'm stuck on my ass for 'at least three months' while my body works on healing. Most of my hobbies are active and after a few days of being stuck on the couch, reading and watching TV, I'm looking for something less passive. My darling husband [personal profile] jackjanderson (we're both very creative with username ideas as you can see!) has a blog and thoroughly enjoys it so he suggested I try it and that I come over here. So here I am.

Name: Samantha
Age: 49
Location: Wales
Tumblr/Goodreads/IG/etc: I don't know what a Tumblr or an IG are. I'm [twitter.com profile] DrSamAnderson, [last.fm profile] samanthanderson.

Describe yourself in five sentences or less: I'm a scientist and a teacher but nothing like you imagine when you hear those two words. I'm the sort of walking contradiction who wears flouncy dresses with leather jackets and biker boots. Think of me as another cute blonde woman at your peril - my passions in life are physics, engineering and mechanics closely followed by tasty baked goods, especially cupcakes. My brother says my motto in life is "she's beauty, she's grace, she'll punch you in the face" and he experienced many of those punches when we were in the single digits!

Top 5 Fandoms: Doctor Who
Justice League
Star Trek
Star Wars
Anything with George Clooney in it
(I also love to watch bad sci-fi to mock it!)

I mostly post about: I've not really posted much but I'm expecting I'll post about science, books, dresses, rugby, shoes, science fiction and cupcakes. I will definitely talk about my family - mostly my husband and girlfriend. I suspect there will be much grumpiness about broken legs and plaster casts.

*walks in late* Hello, new neighbours! Please be my friend! Wait, don't leave!

Name: Mer/waketosleep (my old LJ was stripedpetunia)
Age: 29 (for three years now)
Location: Canada
Tumblr/Goodreads/IG/etc: IG is alarmingllamas and a great place to see pointless photos of my cat; I'm active on twitter as @alarmallama and my AO3 handle is waketosleep.

Describe yourself in five sentences or less: I'm a cis bi woman going into my second year of law school, because my last career decision was very regrettable, and I was diagnosed with ADHD a year and a half ago so that's been an exciting combination. I've been writing in fandom for ~15 years but between the ADHD and the law school and how much of your life can be swallowed up by trying to pay bills, I don't write as often as I used to. My other interests include TV shows, knitting and crochet, the CFL (I'm a Stamps fan), Canadian politics, cola bottle gummy candy, linguistics (that's the bachelor's degree--syntax and SLA what uppp) and video games, but of course that list is far from exhaustive because my interest is easily captured by new and shiny things. I'm on tenterhooks waiting to see who the new Chief Justice of the SCC will be (I'm hoping Justice Abella). That's what law school does to you; don't go to law school.

Top 5 Fandoms:
When it comes to creative contributions such as fic, in no specific order:
- Star Wars
- GenKill
- Marvel
- Star Trek AOS -- I'm not super engaged with this fandom anymore but I think it's the one I'm most associated with, fic-wise
- Mass Effect

I am enthusiastic and will talk your face off about a lot of other TV/games/books/etc, but my actual online fandom engagement is more limited to the above things and whatever else I've written fic for in the last 3-4 years.

I mostly post about: I've been on DW since it launched and spurred one of the first major LJ emigrations but haven't posted much since Tumblr killed journaling and my circle turned to crickets. I'd like to try and get back into it. Expect AO3 shares of new fic I write and random posts about whatever media I'm watching, with less frequent, slightly more personal posts about things like life updates/craft projects/complaining about law school and law students and the law. Some of those I lock, depending on their content. I'm also open to discussing my adventures with ADHD.

My last three posts were about: *checks* ...A Star Wars fic, a Six of Crows fic and a roundup of good things that happened to me in 2016.

How often do you post? How about commenting? I've never been a daily poster but I'm going to try to up the ante from twice a year. I'll set a goal for weekly. I respond to comments on my posts and I like to comment on your posts when I have something to say. Comment-thread conversations are one of the things I miss most about journaling.

I'm sort of trying to find something...fandom friends, or maybe just friends.
 
I'm looking for ppl over 18. Preferably towards my end of the age spectrum. Lgbt parents. People into femslash and people who aren't overly into m/m pairing in their fandoms. People who get social anxiety. Poets and writers.

Anyone else. I don't mind.

I'm 35, bi, genderfluid, married with a kid. I live in Wales, I work in a pharmacy and write fiction and poetry too. 

I've got five cats and four chickens.

I will always love Stargate (SG-1 and SGA) and Trek (TNG, DS9, VOY) I have passing interests in other and currently love Dragon Age, MCU, Steven Universe, Brooklyn 99. I don't write as much fanfic as I used to still have a lot of ideas peculating up there. I miss being part of fandom though I've always felt like I was on the fringes.


I ship f/f and het mostly, and I read that too but I will write anything. Any pairing. I'm either mental or gifted. Not sure which.

I love old films from the beggining to the 70s. Love MST3K. The new series was great. I love crap films, I hate reboots but I will watch them sometimes.


I have a post here that has more about me if you want to check it out.

[personal profile] kutsuwamushi
Name: Kutsuwamushi
Age: Early 30s
Country: Usually the US

Interests and hobbies: I'm a fannish person but not in a single fandom - I'm a butterfly. I like to talk about what I'm reading, watching, or playing now, instead of writing a lot of posts about the same fandom.

Outside of fandom, I'm a graduate student in linguistics who does research in West Africa, and I'm really passionate about languages, especially those outside of Europe. I sometimes dabble in writing original fiction. I post a lot about music.

Looking for:: I miss the days of LJ fandom. I have a tumblr, but it's so impersonal and it's impossible to make friends. Really, it just feels very isolating unless you have a lot of friends there already. I'm looking for people who have a similar approach to journaling on DW as me: People who use it as a way to talk about their interests, and make connections with other people that way. I don't really use my DW as a daily life blog.

Anything else: My journal is mostly open, but I friendslock some fandom stuff. I have a pretty open policy re: grant access. It's mostly just to keep any real-life friends and family who happen to discover my username from knowing too much about my taste in porn (mostly slash, if that matters to you).

Name: Alchemia Dent
Age: as i saw someone else say, 'do you remember rotary phones?' :-(
Location: red city with more places of worship per capita than any other USA city.  and i'm an athiest and queer and a masochist, so naturally we moved to this hellhole.
Gender: Male
Languages: English, ASL (not that that helps much in a journal), my Dutch is rusty, as is my old english etc.  Does perl or lisp (computer languages) count?

Describe yourself in five sentences or less: been on LJ since the time of invites before brad sold it.  Love fandom, esp HP fandom but loath JKR and HP canon... if that confuses you, you may not like my journal (probably best known for meta rants, SurveyFail Ogi Ogas tentical porn, and various Snarry  including Wandless, Pigfeathers and the WIP (a bittersweet potion) thats been waiting over a decade for the next installment because spouse & cowriter bugland and I never expected to be quadruple whammied with medical emergancies).  Autistic and have Ehlers Danlos (genetic disease of connective tissue resulting in constant injuries and chronic pain).  We have a mini farm with mini sheep, chickens, service dogs, african grey parrot, elderly cat i'm surprised is still alive and a few rats (this is actually way down from what we had before medical shit storm).  financially poor, almost all my family is dead or disowned me, horrible social anxiety so no local friends, when not having a panic attack i am often depressed,  haven't painted for over a decade due to arthritis, am nolstalgic for HP and LJ fandom when meta was frequent and indepth, canon was open, there was hope it wasnt one long cheesy calvanist tract..... i have no clue why i'm filling this out as i've no clue why anyone would want to friend me.

Top 5 Fandoms: Harry Potter is pretty much it.... i cant afford comics, i have no tv, cant afford subscriptions to online stuff or movies.  The crossovers Ive done with HP are with things like Gilgamesh epic, works of Gertrude Stein etc.

I mostly post about: i havent posted for a long time so trying to find my journal voice again... likely will be meta and fic/art and complaining about how worthless i am

My last three posts were about: jkr and cultural appropiation, info search on a work of art at a local museaum, computer woes.

How often do you post? trying to get back into it, so not really sure.

How about commenting? ditto.  something i miss on other platforms that dont do this well or even discourage / prevent it.

Describe yourself in five sentences or less: I'm an old LJer who came over to Dreamwidth about ten years ago, but have been intermittently active. Like many fans, the low-effort shininess of Tumblr Where Everybody Else Is (tm) sucked me in. But I miss in-depth fandom discussion and lively comment conversations on people's fics. This fandom blog is dedicated to Doctor Who; I have older DWs but won't spam you with those since they're dormant. In real life, I'm a semi-disabled writer with a host of chronic health issues and a ginormous orange cat named Pumpkin.

Top 5 Fandoms: Classic Who, Big Finish Audio Doctor Who, Final Fantasy, Lord of the Rings, Star Trek

I mostly post about: Doctor Who related fandom stuff: meta commentary, audio reviews, cons and personal Who stuff, fanfiction updates.

My last three posts were about: New chapter update on a Fifth Doctor fanfic, reminiscences about Who fannish experiences in the 80s (mostly), observations about an ongoing minor flaw in Big Finish Doctor Who.

How often do you post? Just getting back into the swing of things. Probably a couple times a week.

How about commenting? That's why I'm getting active on DW again; I miss it!

Describe yourself in five sentences or less:
I'm an old school lj-er looking to start journaling again. I'm happily married to a quiet man. We have a very talkative cat. I work for a small university by day and am a writer by night. I met amazing people in my old LJ days and looking to meet future amazing people.

Top 5 Fandoms:

Walking Dead
Queer as Folk
Parks n Rec

I mostly post about:
My life, my health struggles, my fandoms, writing life, and three positive things. I do enough politics on facebook. FYI - Liberal.

My last three posts were about:
Settling into my new journal, my intentions for this journal, and a 2 year old post from my former LJ.

How often do you post?
I'd like to post at least weekly to 2x a week.

How about commenting?
I'm a comment junkie!

Describe myself in five sentences or less:

An introvert with many opinions which I fight to state despite being introverted. I am a qualified historian but yet to be able to put my degree to use so mostly remain a retail monkey. I'm a member of the SNP in Scotland and active in all senses whether that is being part of photo ops or posting leaflets or knocking on doors with a wide smile and a clipboard even if a Union Jack is in the plant-pot. I prefer reading factual books over fiction and take a personal pride in my cooking each night as given I'm at home most of the time I am the family chef. I am child-free and living at home while single but the love of my life is my lhasa-apso dog Nico who turns 5 in July and who was a huge factor in helping me overcome my social and general anxiety enough to function in the so called 'real world'.


Top five fandoms:
Harry Potter. Star Wars. The Hunger Games. Middle Earth. Charmed. Though I don't talk about fandom that much in my journal to be fair.

I mostly post about: My life. I have a lot of health problems so my dw is an outlet to talk about that. My dog (and my mum's two we live with) come up a lot. My blog changes from week to week. Sometimes I talk about what I'm reading. Sometimes I post links to articles I find interesting. Sometimes I post quotes. I can't claim to be consistent but I'd like to think I'm interesting. I'm a good commenter when I connect with someone though.



My last three posts:
♥ a complaint about when people take up awesome usernames and then don't use them.
♥ a link to my first graphics post in a year.
♥ a general run down of my past couple of days in the world.


How often I post/comment: I will post either every day or once every couple of weeks. It honestly depends on if I feel I have something credible to say. Twitter took a lot of those little posts away huh? I read every day so if I have something to say it would be daily but I don't always feel I DO have anything to say.

I've been blogging since forever. I've had several LiveJournals, back when LiveJournal was "in." I prefer Dreamwidth, because it's lightweight and pink.

I boast a Tumblr with thousands of followers, but none of them talk to me, so I decided to return here for the few that will.

You can find my interests in my profile. I am a super artsy intellectual--a true Brooklyn hipster. Oh, and I'm a 28 year old male who's never been kissed. I stay in my room, avoiding sunlight to prevent aging so I can make up for lost time. Someday.
