Describe yourself in five sentences or less: Queer lady person with too many records and not enough shelves for my books. I live in a small costal village, where I work in a museum. I enjoy traveling, cartoons, comedy and petting animals. She/her.

Top 5 fandoms: I used to be all about the fandoms, but lately... not so much! I read fanfic for a handful of fandoms, but it's p chill on that front at the moment. Actually, can podcasts be a fandom? I'm super into podcasts right now!
  1.  all the podcasts
  2.  Harry Potter
  3.  The Thick of It
  4.  Buffy (I'm re-watching the series along with Buffering the Vampire Slayer!)
  5.  Brooklyn 99

I mostly post about: Day to day life, music, comics, books, struggles with anxiety and depression etc.

My last three LJ posts were about: Life update, work goings-on, meeting a cat

How often do you post? It varies a lot! My journal was all but abandoned and updated about 1-2 times a year while on LJ, but putting in an effort to be more active after the move. Going try try to have at least two a week from now on.

How about commenting? Normally fairly regularly, but will vary in accordance to how busy I am irl.

Tumblr/Goodreads/IG/etc: I don’t use Tumblr and my Goodreads is primarily just for my own tracking purposes. The last time I used IG, I think I was taking photographs of toilets on the campus of my daughter’s university… so, best to skip.

Describe yourself in five sentences or less however many sentences it takes:
I’m a (re)married woman with two children of my own and three stepchildren - all adults. I’ve got a granddaughter and a grandson who will be born very soon. I love travel, novel / strange experiences, natural medicine and gardening, artistic exploits, music (dark and crunchy lately). I’m expressive. I’m a practicing Pagan/witch. Pagan topics and themes come up in my journal from time-to-time. I’m politically/socially quite liberal (which may also come up from time to time). I’m a technical writer who is studying to be a hypnotherapist. I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Philosophy. Useful! I believe in practicing gratitude and optimism, though I’ve struggled with a resurgence of depression a bit this year, I’m always trying to sort out how to feel better about my life experience.

Top 5 Fandoms:
I don’t write about fandoms. I’m not a fan of reality. I generally only watch/read things that are fantastical in some way (or are historical). If a movie or show doesn’t include magic, ghosts, elves, hobbits, vampires, zombies, superheroes, etc., I’m likely not going to be terribly interested. If I wanted to watch regular ole cold-blooded murder, I’d turn on the news. That said, I DO enjoy documentaries.

I mostly post about:
My life. My journal is really my journal. General “this is what’s up” posts are shared with friends. Things of a more sensitive or intimate nature are not. I am a very project-oriented person, so I write about whatever project I’m working on at any given moment (could be painting a nightstand, could be starting a YouTube channel, could be sewing a costume).

My last three posts were about:
Dinner with my son (he’s going to look for a new job!), protesting Nazis, and acing my past-life regression test.

How often do you post? How about commenting?
I post about 5 days a week (Monday – Friday / once per day). Once I’ve begun to get an understanding of a person, I’ll begin to comment if I have something supportive or constructive (or funny) to say.

Describe yourself in five sentences or less: I'm an artist / a creator/ a starry-eyed optimistic. I'm an introvert, a smart ass, and I say fuck a lot. (Don't worry, it offends me too) I live on a farm. I have muddy boots, painted fingernails, my own business, and a large collection of bungee cords. This is my fifth sentence.

Top 5 Fandoms: If you want to consider them as such... veg*n food, my husband, marketing/design, cruelty-free living, daydreaming

I mostly post about: Daily ramblings. Farm life. People in my life. Work. Smart ass things I should leave unsaid, so I write them instead.

I rarely post about: Politics & religion. I steer clear of both.

My last three posts were about:
-- Awkward encounters all day long
-- A trainwreck of an issue with a former friend
-- Whacking the fuck out of my leg while feeding the goats

How often do you post? Daily, for the most part. My writing style fluctuates greatly with my moods. I reserve the right to not make any sense at any given time as well as the right to make you think that six totally different people are writing in my journal. I even entertain myself in that aspect. Just go with it.

How about commenting? I comment when I have something to say, which is sometimes a lot and sometimes not.

[personal profile] angrboda
Name: [personal profile] angrboda. I don't give out my real name online, unless necessary.
Age: 38
Location: Denmark
Tumblr/Goodreads/IG/etc: Angrboda on Goodreads. Don't have tumblr and don't even know what "IG" is.

Describe yourself in five sentences or less: Happily married to Husband, no children by choice, but two extremely cute cats. Preferred reading genre is primarily fantasy, but also enjoy historical fiction. Hate my job, but although we are wanting for nothing, only one of us working would still be rather expensive. Strongly introvert and quite shy. Immensely enjoying relatively new-found hobbies of cross-stitching (been doing it for three or four years) and patchwork/quilting, and am an ambitious beginner.

Top 5 fandoms: I don't really participate in fandom as such any more. I used to be active in Harry Potter, but although I still love the books, actual fandom activity is behind me. I will occasionally write about things, books, games, films, television that I'm enjoying, but that's about it.
Right now, for example, I've been enjoying "Grace and Frankie" (haven't got very far into that yet), and weirdly have fallen into "My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic" much to the amusement of Husband. I don't know what it is, it's just so charming. And of course my previously mentioned crafty pursuits. Can crafts be a fandom?

I mostly post about: Personal life stuff, which is always friends-locked. I also try to do 'What I'm Reading Wednesday' posts at least semi-regularly, and once in a blue moon similar for whatever I've been stitching or sewing. (I picked up the idea of a Crafty Tuesday sort of post, similiar to the reading ones, from someone on my flist, I forget who, but it doesn't seem to have taken off. Tuesday is not a good day for it for me anyway. Haven't given up on the idea, though.)

My last three LJ posts were about: What I'm Reading Wednesday (today), What we did on my birthday (about five days ago), and another What I'm Reading Wednesday (one week ago)

How often do you post? It varies. It's not daily, but I tend to have something once or twice a week or so.

How about commenting? I am not a frequent commenter. I comment if I have something to say and feel like I actually have something to add. I do not comment simply for the sake of commenting. Likewise, I don't expect people to always comment on everything. I would much rather have one meaningful comment than ten comments only made for the sake of commenting. If receiving regular comments from flisters is important to you, then we would probably not be a good match. I do reply to all comments I receive, although sometimes it takes me a little while to do so.

A GIF to describe how your day has been today so far: To be honest, I don't actually like GIFs at all. I find these constantly moving images distracting and a little unpleasant to look at. I've got a browser extension installed that makes them play once and not repeat, and it's worth its metaphorical weight in gold.
