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 )

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 Thu 24 Aug at 09:29 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.

uh, ciao!

Describe yourself in five sentences or less: I am an acquired taste but overall very easy to get along with! A friendly, bisexual, karaoke-fiend that loves to write/roleplay, draw, and watch disturbing videos willingly at night. I'm a sucker for being creeped out. Have I mentioned I'm a weirdo? But a weirdo who loves to make friends!

Top 5 fandoms: To be quite honest, it's really only American Horror Story, Preacher, annddd The Office. I am constantly watching The Office. I realize it's been over for quite a while but that means nothing! Nothing, I say!

I mostly post about: My personal life and what-have-you. If not that: an article, new music I've discovered, maybe a selfie here or there, and pix of my pups! I just recently registered on the site so I have very few posts up right now.

I rarely post about: Politics, only because I use FB primarily for that. But I am not opposed to following folks that do, as I like to engage in discussion sometimes - especially if you're looking for one!

My three last posts were about: My loneliness and lack of friends, haha. I promise that will change and is not a constant. I was simply amusing myself. ;)

How often do you post? I will probably start out posting often but it may slow down as I have adult things that need my attention more. I'm taking care of my dad at the moment and that's where most of my focus is at when not here or other social platforms!

How about commenting? I will likely comment more than post. But that's so I keep in touch with everyone. My life doesn't provide a great deal of interesting things to talk about right now, so! I'm also trying this new thing where I don't dwell on negative crap like I used to. It's working out nicely! 

(This doesn't describe my day, but the kid's face cracks me up and I have a similar distaste for vodka myself, haha.)

Describe yourself in five sentences or less: I work full time in a doctors office in medical records. I'm in the process of writing the second draft of a book. I love to hike and exercise as it helps with my depression. I love to travel, read, go to concerts and hang out with friends. I also help with the local film festival every year.

Top 5 Fandoms: LOST, Twin Peaks, Harry Potter

I mostly post about: Work, depression and trying to keep it balanced, my writing, hiking, my niece and nephew, travel, books, music, and throw in a touch of sarcasm.

I rarely post about: Politics (It's okay if you do. I probably will ignore that part of your entry.), When my depression hits, I try to talk about the positive and not the negative side of it.

My last three posts were about: My friends page. I am just getting started into journaling again. I was big on Greatestjournal and Insane Journal. These days my IJ friends page never moves. I miss the connecting.

How often do you post? As often as I feel like writing. It could be 5 times a week more or less.

How about commenting? I will comment if I have something to say in the post.

Top 5 Fandoms: Impractical Jokers, Outlander, Gerard Butler, The Beatles, New Kids on the Block

I mostly post about: Impractical Jokers, especially Sal who is my favorite. And sometimes Murr, my second favorite lol. I also always post about my day, surveys, and daily 10 shuffle of songs on my phone.

I rarely post about: politics. Don't post about them at all.

My last three posts were about: finishing writing my 60th novel, top 10 shuffle, comedy show I went to

How often do you post? very often

How about commenting? I always comment in return of those who comment on my posts

NAME: Samy.
AGE: 38 going on 29. :-)
INTERESTS & HOBBIES: I read a lot (mostly SF and fantasy, the classics, fact books and fanfic. So much fanfic :-)), I like doing art, play the guitar (poorly), take photographs and sometimes I write some fanfic too. I travel both for my job and for fun, so I post about some of that as well. My top fandoms are: Star Trek (TOS/AOS), Marvel's Avengers, Hobbit/LotR, Lois McMaster Bujold's "Vorkosigan" series.

LOOKING FOR: I am looking for people interested in making friends/who share some of my interests. I'm a recent emigree from livejournal and it's a bit lonely on here right now, for me.

ANYTHING ELSE?: I've written a longer post about myself here.

[personal profile] mrs_patootie
 name. Bloo, but Mrs. Patootie is fine. :) 
age. twenty-seven
residence. Georgia, USA

i post about. 
My life, usually. I'm kind of a wreck and worry a lot about things that worrying just isn't going to fix. Writing about those kinds of things helps me really analyze my problems. I'm also really into subscription boxes (because I'm laaaaaame), so I'll post about those too. :) (Currently I'm only subscribed to Pusheen Box, Sanrio Small Gift Crate via Loot Crate, and Ivory Clasp.) I may also post about my marriage and my son, as well as all those other little tidbits that happen. I'm currently in the process of trying to quit my job, so I might ramble about how stressed I am about this. ...I'll also post a lot of pictures. 

Sometimes I go to marches or reveres protests, and I may write about those. This year I went to the Women's March on Washington, the Science March in Atlanta, and a local reverse protest for Planned Parenthood. 

i really like.
Cats! Real ones and cartoon ones, Hello Kitty and Pusheen being my favorite. I love fashion - particularly minimalist goth, 80s, and anything a little funky or odd! I'm really into makeup, but I'm such an amateur that it's painful. I collect salt and pepper shakers. :) I really like Asian dramas, especially the funny ones. I'm teaching myself how to be a better cook! I'm really into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, especially the tv shows. I like vampires because I'm still twelve, I guess. Buffy and Angel are my heroes. Paper crafts have my heart. ♥ (My profile has a nice list of my favorite shows and movies! :D) ...I'm also a bit of a gamer - primarily PC, but I bought a PS4 earlier this year and have only recently started using it. MMORPGs are liiiiife.

please add me.
If you're really into reading boring journal posts, then you should def add me. Add me if you also write about your day to day life, your personal life, or you write about any of the things we have in common. Add me if you're younger or older! Add me if you just want to make friends from different walks of life - or even friends from the same walk! Add me if you love cats! Add me if you're a parent - whether you're maternal or not! Add me if you like fashion - any type as long as you're not a jerk about it. :) Add me~

Age: 28 (I don't act it though!)
About Me: I'm autistic, but I'm only on the mild end of the spectrum. I also have mildish Dyspraxia, ADHD and very severe anxiety. I suspect that I might have Bipolar II, but I can't get a proper diagnosis for that at this time. I'm very heavily into writing and disability rights as well. I'm an all around crazy person who also happens to be a fangirl. :3 I also consider myself to be a little, which is a bit different from ABDL. I am asexual/biromantic, and that means that I don't see it as a sexual thing either. It's just a mode I go into to help with my anxiety at times. ^^ I'm also not prejudice of anyone. I love everyone, and I don't care if you are Muslim, disabled... whatever. I just love everyone as long as they are nice!
About my journal: I do tend to fangirl some, but you don't really see it unless I'm super obsessed with something. My latest obsession was Harry Hook from Descendants 2. I also talk a lot about my writing and my boring life. I also talk about other things that I can't really name atm.
Interests: Loki/Tom Hiddleston, Disney stuff, plushies, writing, the minions, disability rights... and more.

I hope to be good friends with you all! X3

Describe yourself in five sentences or less: I'm a writer and a photographer living in a small house with a husband, two dogs and two cats. I collect things like tshirts and stuffed animals. I like audiobooks while I drive, which I do a lot because I'm in the SCA. I have a youtube channel unboxing lootcrates. I have schizoaffective disorder, but the mood symptoms are largely dealt with with meds and it's mostly just psychotic symptoms now.

Top 5 Fandoms:
seaQuest DSV, Firefly, MCU, HP, Star Trek


I mostly post about: Day to day life which currently includes a partial hospitalization program, writing, volunteering at an aquarium and zoo, as well as volunteering reading to a 3rd grade boy at his school. I'm learning to play golf, and learning to play the recorder. You may eventually get youtubes of me playing the recorder. But first I need to learn how to read music. lol. I go swimming fairly often. I'm in the SCA. Occasionally I get off my but and go to Synagogue. I'm a photographer. I also talk about what I'm reading, which at the moment and for the foreseeable future, includes reading the entire Bible one chapter a night and summing it up in a few sentences of "WTF?" once a week on my Wednesday reading meme. I also post music every Monday, and writing every Tuesday, and unboxing videos every Saturday. I'm also in the middle of a 365 day meme, which will not actually take me 365 days because I keep skipping questions for being too stupid to bother with.

I rarely post about: politics (although every once in awhile it comes up), my husband's dysfunctional family,

My last three posts were about: Weekly reading meme, my partial hospitalization program, taking the dog to the vet, and writing, considering starting a 101 in 1001 list.

How often do you post?: Daily

How about commenting?: I read every day, multiple times a day, but I'm not always the best about commenting. I'll comment if I have something to add, but I won't comment just to comment on every single entry (and tend to get annoyed with people who do that),

I'm a 33 year old Scottish woman, trying to get my journal groove back. I'm a mum of three boys from teen to newborn, and work in healthcare but (thankfully) I'm on maternity leave just now. I mainly write about daily life, the struggles and highlights of attempting to adult and parent and be healthy as a highly strung, stressed over-thinker who doesn't like herself most of the time.  

Wow, I sound fun.  Should I mention that there will be wine, gin and chocolate?

I was obsessed with my Livejournal back in the day - I started it back in 2003 and even though I've only dipped in and out of it in recent years, writing is still very much how I make sense of my life and my mind. That's why I'm trying to reignite that obsession I once had...though it's difficult with increasing grown up responsibilities and shrinking time of my own to put pen to paper fingers to keyboard.  But I know I need the chance to record snatches of life as it flies past, and an outlet for when my mental health takes a dive. 

I swear and I like to write no-holds-barred.  I'm very liberal and support choice - be that choice of who you love, choice over your reproductive options, or just the freedom to chose what you're going to watch on telly tonight. I'm doing my Masters in weight management so I try to live healthily through fitness (like dancing and weight training, albeit on a very beginner level) and healthy eating, but more often than not find myself alone amongst the crumbs at the bottom of a packet of biscuits. I'm book obsessed (mainly literary fiction and never fantasy, chick-lit, or much sci-fi), love a good tv series (Mr Robot, Stranger Things, The Handmaid's Tale, OITNB, Top of the Lake and Homeland have been recent highlights), and sometimes I even get out to see friends.  Some or none of this may come out in my writing.

Along with a lack of time, I guess part of why I've lost touch with my journal has been my shrinking friends list.  It's hard to make time to update when it feels increasingly like you're just shouting into a void. So I'd love it if anyone out there who is in a similar place in life or who is into similar things would like to take a punt on my journal.  I wont promise a very active journal but I am going to try, and I'm also going to try and be a good friend in return.

It's a good job I've been with my husband for ten years, because I'd suck at filling out a dating profile.  Feel free to swipe left (or is it right...? I'm not on Tinder).

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.)

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.

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.

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!

Hi!

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.
