Friending Frenzy!  
I just used this awesome widget to add all my lj friends on dw. If I missed you, it's prolly 'cause your lj name isn't the same as your dw name, but I still wanna be friends, so add me and I'll add you back, k?

Also dropped a buncha comments on a dw friending meme, so if anyone new is reading this because of that, HI!

DW is my new toy and I want to meet lots of cool new people and do fun stuff and join comms and get a shiny new layout and wheeeeeeee!

Only downside: LACK OF ICONS. SADFAAAAAAACE. But I'm not quite ready (or, right now, able, tbh) to spend the money to have pretty, pretty icons to choose from. Waaaah.

How do I feel?: bouncybouncy

ps thank you for still crossposting.

Ditto. I've held out on joining any of the LJ competitors until they hit critical mass (e.g. all my friends migrate and only post there).

Yup, I know what you mean. It's distressing to me to see fandom become split among different blogging sites. But it seems to me that dreamwidth has emerged as the clear alternative to LJ (as opposed to journalfen, insane journal, etc.) and DW makes it so easy to have your cake and eat it too, with the easy importing of all your lj stuff to dw, and the cross-posting feature.

I'm not leaving LJ - I've got a permanent account, and I'm not going to take it down so unless LJ baleets me, it'll always be here. And LJ is definitely still where most of the fandom action is for now, so I'm sticking around here, in addition to being on dw.

I just want to start getting comfortable over at DW too, because honestly it seems to me like it's inevitable that eventually most of fandom will relocate there. LJ just keeps pulling dick maneuvers that make it clear that they aren't really concerned about their userbase, especially their fannish userbase.

er, sorry about that. /soapbox

What, in your opinion, shows that they 'aren't really concerned about their userbase, especially their fannish userbase'? Specifics, please. I'm honest to god confused; maybe I missed something.

Um, I don't think you missed anything, if you've been watching this latest thing unfold. Here's a calm, rational explanation of how I feel about it (linked with permission).

Huh. It wasn't before. Now I can't even access it. Wish I could remember what it said so I could sum it up for you! :p

I doubt I'll even go then. I'll just be here being t00by by myself, lol.

ps nice icon ;)

:D No worries. I'm not leaving LJ, just adding a fun new way to waste hours and hours of valuable time! \o/

...oh wait. *headdesk*

No for reals, I have a permanent account on lj, and most of the fandom activity still seems to be here, so I'm not going anywhere for now. It's just easier if I post on dw and hit the little tickybox to crosspost here, so I have the entry archived in two places. You know, in case LJ decides to do a mass baleeting of accounts again.

...you know, maybe I should do a post explaining this in case anyone else on my flist is wondering. :p

Hopefully we can still comment on LJ? I'm happy to read on DW when a link takes me there from LJ but I'm not an OpenID fan, which means the likelihood of my commenting over there plunges.
I hear DW is short of comms so most of the fun group stuff still happens over here.
Sky: [star trek aos] pike ruefulskyblue_reverie on September 12th, 2010 02:53 pm (UTC)
Yeah, for the foreseeable future, my plan is to keep both journals active, and to allow & respond to comments in both places.

I hope dw becomes more active, comm-wise, but yeah, right now LJ is still where most of the fun group stuff is, and I'm not willing to give that up.

zauzatzauzat on September 12th, 2010 02:55 pm (UTC)
Good for you, I find one journal more than enough to handle.
Skyskyblue_reverie on September 12th, 2010 03:26 pm (UTC)
I... *blinks*

Was that a slam?
zauzatzauzat on September 12th, 2010 03:37 pm (UTC)
What's a slam? Seriously - I don't know what that means. Did I just offend you in some way? I would never do that to you, the comment means no more than it says, I do think if it's impressive that you (and others) are up for running 2 journals.
zauzatzauzat on September 12th, 2010 03:39 pm (UTC)
typo fail... I do think that it is impressive that you and others are running 2 journals.
Skyskyblue_reverie on September 12th, 2010 03:53 pm (UTC)
A slam = an insult.

I wasn't sure how you meant that comment, whether you meant for it to be taken at face value or as sarcasm.

So hard to tell tone over the internet, darn it! :D

in case LJ decides to do a mass baleeting of accounts again.
Are you referring to 'Strikethrough 07' or has something happened recently that I've not seen?
Sky: [star trek aos] jim smileskyblue_reverie on September 14th, 2010 02:20 am (UTC)
Referring to "Strikethrough 07". :)
Weeping Naiad: Inconceivableweepingnaiad on September 12th, 2010 02:41 pm (UTC)

I don't want to leave LJ. *stamps foot*

But, I'm cross-posting, too. Can't deal with tracking two f-lists though, so luckily most of my friends are cross-posting so I won't lose them.

*kicks LJ* Stupid idiots.
zauzatzauzat on September 12th, 2010 02:47 pm (UTC)
No don't go. I don't want everyone going. One place eats my life, I'm not going to try and live in two.
Sky: [other] tree archskyblue_reverie on September 12th, 2010 02:55 pm (UTC)
I don't want to go either, so, for now, I'm not. I mean, my plan right now is to keep on with lj at the same level I was before, just that I'm posting to dw and cross-posting here so I have everything backed up.

Plus, you know playing with shiny new dw-toy. Why choose when you can have both! :D

*clings back*

I iz confused with all the journals! Dinosaur brain is melting, melting! :) But thanks to you I have a DW journal - though it's not in much use yet - so will attempt to cram more information into my brain. Ah teh Interwebz!! At least there's still Google chat too ...right???
Sky: [bg] hell yesskyblue_reverie on September 12th, 2010 10:49 pm (UTC)
Absotively there is still google chat! :D
