Are you fed up with this poll
I tried MySpace, which just wasn't for me, Facebook, also not for me. The things you could do on both sites that LJ do not offer, I didn't want anyway. On MySpace I actively hated going to someone else's page and hearing music I would never listen to by choice. The games on Facebook annoy me, so my sort lived time spend on them tended to end up making me feel vaguely irritated.
Then there are the LJ clones. Greatestjournal, now defunked, insane journal, which I never liked, hated the colour scheme of the log in page and profile page, annoyed by the tacky slogans, and the face just made me want to throw things at the screen. Now Dreamwidth. I just never think about it, it really hasn't made an impression on me in any way. Maybe I should try a paid account, but I would rather just save the money as I can do everything I want on LJ. The one thing I like on DW is my name, Lady_Windermere, but not that much. I guess I'm just so used to being called woman_of_ now, I sometimes think of myself in that name.
Now of course I've had LJ for 5 years. I've put time and effort into it, built up friendships, got to know the people here, and even had the pleasure of meeting a few in RL. It has all the communities and interests of my main hobby, fandom, and I know them. I also know the ones to avoid to allow me to enjoy my happy place here. That being said, the biggest draw to LJ are my friends. I just do not want to start again on another site. Yes LJ does things that have me rolling my eyes and wondering if management really know the role of LJ in our lives. That this is where we come to let our hair down, with people we have cultivated over time that we feel comfortable sharing things that perhaps we would hesitate to tell our RL friends. That doesn't bother me, because I love my LJ friends, and many I feel I know better than RL ones, and many I feel know me better than people do in RL.
I also visit Twitter a lot. I just do not see it as a Social Media Site. I love my LJ friends who I follow and follow me on Twitter, but really, with twitter it offers three things outside of LJ. News, recipies and celebs. That is what keeps me going back, what Twitter offers more off than I get on LJ.
Oh and can I just say that these five years on LJ have been well worth it. LJ itself can be a daft company, but the real value in this Social Media site is the friends I have made.
Should we read an......classic
Which show is your favourite at present?
My particular triggers are Rimming, 69s and alternating top and bottom. They really do it for me *sigh*, which leads me to ask, what are the things that a fanfic writer can put in a fic which make you weak at the knees?
I don't mean the usual good spelling and grammer, characterisation or the other items which are usually look for, but the little surprises that make you estatic with happiness when you find a little nugget in a fic.
Is there something I do that really annoys you? To many polls, spelling mistakes/typos, not enough of your favourite fandom? Can be anything you want, and again, can post anon.
So have at it, tell me what you really think of this journal, and the impression I give.
writerconuk must've been playing on my mind, as I had a dream where, for some reason bogwitch was staying with me before we set off to the convention. We were both on our computers, writing fanfiction (not together, we each were writing our own), when bogwitch went out and came back with a neighbour's two children. A little boy and a little girl. The little boy was into Doctor Who, so we ended up watching an episode to keep him entertained.
A pretty good dream all in all, just wish I could remember if the fanfic I was writing was any good. I do remember that bogwitch kind of rolled her eyes at the title, so I suspect not.
