liv: Stylised sheep with blue, purple, pink horizontal stripes, and teacup brand, dreams of Dreamwidth (sheeeep)
[personal profile] liv
Here's the thing: a lot of people are about ready to leave LJ over the latest shenanigans. But they don't want to make the leap to Dreamwidth because, frankly, there isn't enough going on here. The site is smaller, so there are fewer posts, and fewer cool people to meet. And all their friends are on LJ, which is of course a self-perpetuating situation: if "everybody" is still on LJ, then there's a huge disincentive against moving, which means that everybody continues to be on LJ.

Lots of people have realized that the best way to address this issue is, well, creating content. Some people are organizing collective efforts to create more content. This is a great idea, except for one small problem: the people who are really good at organizing and creating content are mainly fandom. I have nothing at all against fandom, but I'm not really part of it, and I think that a lot of other people who feel similarly are being put off because they see DW as yet another clubhouse for the cool fandom kids.

But I am going to take a leaf from fandom's book: I'm going to cease sitting around complaining about how DW is too quiet. Instead I'm going to participate in creating content and drawing attention to the cool stuff that already exists. So, I propose a giant non-fandom friending meme (thanks, [personal profile] delight). If you would like find some new, interesting people to read, or make new friends, or just help highlight how much cool stuff there is on DW, please comment to this post.

You're welcome to say whatever you like, but here's a suggested template:
Your identity: doesn't have to be A/S/L, but anything that you think people should know about you to be able to decide whether they're likely to be interested in getting to know you.
What you are passionate about
How you use Dreamwidth
A link to a recent post of yours that is characteristic of your journal or writing style.
A link to a journal on Dreamwidth you think people might enjoy reading, even if they don't know the writer personally.

Footnote 1: Some people have moral or technical objections to Dreamwidth, or actively prefer LJ. That's totally cool with me – this post isn't addressed to you. I'm looking to involve people who would like to make the move, but are put off because there isn't enough to read or enough people to meet here. I am not at all proselytizing, in other words, just doing my bit to fix what I see as the biggest glaring problem with DW. Other people may see other problems, and I am not trying to fix those.

Footnote 2: If you are involved in fandom, you're extremely welcome to participate. Perhaps you'd like to meet someone who shares some of your less fannish interests. Or you are welcome to go and join in some of the more explicitly fandom-related activities going on instead.

I am going to post this now, rather than waiting until the official three-week fest, because I think now is while the iron is hot and people are motivated to move to a new site. But I'll link it again when the fest starts up on 26th April, around the one-year anniversary of Dreamwidth entering Open Beta. I don't have any strong opinions about the DW-only content thing, and you don't have to be participating in that to participate in this meme.

So, go forth and friend!

ETA: And if you like the idea, please link this post all over the place. Or make your own version, or whatever, but mainly spread the word as much as possible

You sound a lot like my dad, which is a compliment because he's one of my favorite people in the entire world and the person I look up to the most, professionally speaking. (Teaches medical school, works in community health, a verbal reform Jew talking about being Jewish in medicine, traveling all over the place to spread his science and frequently attempting to solve every problem presented to him.)

This alone is a good enough reason to add you, though I also really like your writing!

From: [personal profile] rho
Your identity: I'm rho (which I always spell with a lower case r) or Rachel, depending on who's asking, and respond equally well to either of them, both online and off. I'm British, but am hoping to move to the USA later this year. I'm a geek, a scientist, a feminist, a transwoman, a lesbian, a sceptic, a liberal, and a whole lot of other things.

What you are passionate about: Lots of things! Having suffered for a long time from sever clinical depression, I try to be as passionate as I can about as much I can, because it sure beats anhedonia. If I had to pick one thing that stirs my passion, I'd say science, and especially physics. Beyond that, I'm also passionate about mental health, transgender rights, women's rights, politics, video games, technology, maths, the Internet...

How you use Dreamwidth: I tend to post what I feel like when I feel like it. Sometimes this means I post several times a day, and sometimes it means I go weeks without posting anything at all. Sometimes I tend more towards a journal, talking about my life and what I've been doing with it, and sometimes I tend more towards a blog, talking about whatever issue stirs my interest at the time.

Example posts:A personal journal type post.
A maths geek post.
A feminism and body image post.

I picked a good time to look at my network! I've been wondering if something like this was going to happen. I'd love to make some non-fannish friends. Hello and thank you. :3


Identity :: I'm a 24-yo Australian. I'm an atheist and an asexual. I like speculative fiction media and I'm a fan of a lot of TV shows and books and manga etc.. but I don't do anything in fandoms. I'm a bit of a writer, and sometimes I post some (original, usually fantasy) fiction or about my struggles with writing.

Passions :: Interesting and well-written speculative fiction, linguistics, discussing fantasy meta (e.g. what sort of vampire teeth are best), world-building magic systems, learning new things.

Dreamwidth use :: I don't tend to post much about daily life (because it's boring). I post bits of writing and crafts (origami and cross stitch, mostly), sometimes photos and interesting things, sometimes reviews and squee/thoughts on things I've watched/read. Hopefully I'll be posting more often in the future. The last few months haven't been good. :/

Recent posts :: thinking about non-abled body magic ; origami & cross stitch pictures

Rec : [personal profile] sqbr is very thinky. A lot more thinky than I am.

rising: nothing to lose (the cadre: nothing to lose)
From: [personal profile] rising
I'm Rowan. At least, most of the time.

What you are passionate about: I love my photography, my cats, DW, the Renaissance faire and sometimes other things related to it, like my spinning and whatnot, though aside from spinning I don't do any other fiber crafts. I read books voraciously despite that I'm dyslexic. If I get brave, I write original fiction type stuff and if I'm even more brave, I post it. And then there are the various gods and things related to them that go into play.

How you use Dreamwidth: My journal might look a little empty, but that's just 'cause everything is access-locked. I do, however, add people a lot. I post pretty often and it varies, sometimes about my life, sometimes about other stuff, and most often, touching on more than one of those during the same post.

I also founded [community profile] renfaire and am working on getting that off of the ground and going.

Your identity: I'm Janine, I'm 25, and I live in the SF Bay Area (US). I work as a web developer at a biotech company, though before that I worked at LJ. I'm married to one of the owners of DW ([staff profile] mark), and I'm more of a lurker and don't post too much anymore, but I'm trying to change that.

What you are passionate about: Dogs, biology, hanging out with friends, raw feeding for pets...nothing too exciting heh.

How you use Dreamwidth: I write about my life. It's pretty much a way for me to keep a log of what's going on, and to share things with my friends. The majority of my posts are access locked (filters are used rarely). I used to write more often, but not so much anymore. I'm trying to write more, though.

Mostly, I'm looking for some new friends on DW, since the majority of the people who read my journal are either exclusively on LJ, or were my friends on LJ before they moved to DW. I don't comment much, and I don't post to my own journal much, but I do read pretty regularly. :)

delight: (Default)
From: [personal profile] delight
Identity: I am Rue (yes, that is really my name); 21 years old, living in central New York, originally a co-resident of Manhatan (NYC) and Troy, MI, traveling back and forth between the two. The influence of those two places leads to me not really being able to stand central NY, but I'm here for school. I'm about to start my field internship as a paramedic, which I'm terrified of, but I should be finishing in August and hopefully continuing on to nursing school.

I have a lot of problems communicating in words (I think in pictures; yes, like Temple Grandin, exactly like) the first two to fifteen times I write something, and so can come out very awkward and incoherent. My posts come with a 'bad communicator' warning label.

I also happen to be female, an atheist Jew (you can ask me how if you want), socially awkward, on the autistic spectrum, highly disabled by my OCD but trying to pretend that isn't true, extremely small (5', 85lbs) and trying to grow, bad at explaining myself, and someone who creates a lot.

Passions: Medicine and public health, first and foremost. (Although I suppose you could say my parents and boyfriend are first and foremost, they don't really count as that kind of passion.) Dogs, secondmost and horses and birds thirdmost, all of which I used to have in my life and right now, sadly, don't. Living for the sake of living and occasionally doing something crazy. Books and reading. Creating and writing and telling stories, as well as my characters and the ones I share with my friends, although I generally don't share the stories. Adventuring and traveling and being outdoorsy. Mysteries and the solving of them. Being spontaneous. Things I'm sure I'm forgetting.

Use of Dreamwidth: I confess, I post about my daily life despite the fact I think it's boring. I mod some communities, post in others. I also post links when I think they're of interest (many are public health related), and if I ever get the nerve will post about my end of the neurodiversity stick. I also tend to spew out Diary of a Paramedic sorts of things, and when I was in classes often posted about what class did. Probably when I'm back in classes that will pick up again. I try to present daily anecdotes in as interesting a fashion as possible. Also, I made the Tropo Purple scheme. I was goaded encouraged to say that as a point in my favor.

Example posts of mine: Here is a post about paramedic school, and fun times with my parents' technology.

Hi there, saw this on [personal profile] delight's journal and wanted to jump in :).

Your identity: Hi, I'm John, I'm 27, a father of two young girls (and their primary caregiver), a native of upstate NY, and finishing up a degree in business so I can get on with law school. I have a long list of hobbies, more than enough to fill my copious amounts of spare time, but not much of it involves fandom.

What you are passionate about I am passionate about life, as I figure I've only got a short span and I want to make this world a better place before I punch out. It's taken a lot for me to get here. I believe we can still accomplish great things as people and as a culture, but we have to get through some pretty nasty attitudes of "superiority" first. Outside of my philosophy, I am an avid computer builder and more budding musician.

How you use Dreamwidth I am one of the leads of DW's Anti-spam team - you only notice us when we're not doing our job (which we are pretty darn good at, so you don't notice us hardly ever :). I keep meaning to write more about social issues of various sorts, and I try not to Fail when I do it. But those are the things I do most around here.

This is a good example of my writing style: Reasons in Favor of Fundamentalism - http://invisionary.dreamwidth.org/15848.html

If you don't read [personal profile] trouble, you should. She is quite insightful about a lot of different things.

Your identity: I'm Nikki. I'm a woman. I'm twenty. I live in Wales at the moment, and attend Cardiff University doing English Literature. To quote my mini bio: "I'm non-judgemental, pansexual, liberal, Liberal, Unitarian Universalist, Welsh, a writer, a reader, a singer, a gamer, a fangirl."
What you are passionate about: Books, poetry, university, writing, folk music, singing, discussion, my girlfriend, fandom, religion, politics.
How you use Dreamwidth: With this journal, it's a mixture of everything. I post every day about whatever's on my mind that day, which might be fandom, or might be about books I've been reading, or it might be about going out with my friends or it might be about how much I love cleaning (I really do). My fanfic is separate, at [personal profile] edenbound, my original writing is separate and by invitation only, and my book reviews/babble about fandom is at [personal profile] wilderthan.
A link to a recent post of yours that is characteristic of your journal or writing style. I'm sorry I can't provide this. Feel free to just chat to me in comments for a while to see if you get on with me!
A link to a journal on Dreamwidth you think people might enjoy reading, even if they don't know the writer personally. [personal profile] justira. A lot of fandom stuff and art, but also interesting and thoughtful posts about politics/feminism/etc.

stepps: ([bob] Watch the line)
From: [personal profile] stepps
Your identity: I'm stepps, an Australian born woman who's lived in New Zealand more than half her life. I also lived in Germany for two years, and would love to go back there sometime for longer. I'm a fan foremost (and actively participate in bandom (band fandom), Generation Kill, and Band of Brothers fandoms. I also work for a major telco, in frontline sales and service and like my job despite the shit it gives me.
What you are passionate about: Good fiction (books or fannish). I create rec lists for my fandoms fairly regularly. Music, though I don't play an instrument I come from a family of musicians, and some of my best friends are musicians. Art and design. I studied graphic design for a while, and might again. Gender (in an aim to figure out my own), and girls being allowed to enjoy sex and porn. My delicious.com accounts.
How you use Dreamwidth: I post almost daily with a little RL, a little fannish talk, and discussion about a) dreamwidth (which I love), b) delicious, c) lists or fannish projects. Though I've reasonably fannishly active I enjoy interesting journals of all kinds.
A recent post: A post about Dw stuff with some bandom comm pimping. Another, about recent tech, Aussie politics, and my bands.
A link to a journal on Dreamwidth: Oh gosh, I'm really not sure whom to pimp that isn't very very fannish. [personal profile] celli, [personal profile] murklins, [personal profile] reginagiraffe, [personal profile] yvi, and [personal profile] charmian

dar: (Default)
From: [personal profile] dar
Your identity: Dar, Daz or Darren. 27 and looking forward to being old (it beats the alternative). I live in Ireland and right now I'm trying to get enough money together to get the hell out and go live somewhere with opportunity. I've spent a long time learning lots of life lessons. Some hard, others not so much. Now I'm ready to spread my wings, and I'd like to make my journal a document of that.
What you are passionate about: Oh, lots of stuff. I used to get passionate about always negative subjects, but I'm a reformed cynic and a born-again optimist. I feel passionate about the good things. Creativity, the goodness in people, all of it.
How you use Dreamwidth: Trying to make my day-to-day life sound more entertaining than it actually is. Random bouts of philosophy. Occasional opinion pieces on stuff in the news. Sometimes ideas for books or movies I feel like sharing, and every now and then a dose of fanboying. If I post less than two paragraphs, I feel like I'm doing something wrong.

darchildre: a candle in the dark.  text:  "a light in dark places". (Default)
From: [personal profile] darchildre
Your identity: Hi, I'm Sara. I'm 27, I live in Western Washington, I work at the library, and I'm a great big geek. I'm a heathen and do occasionally post about religion. I'm asexual and occasionally post about that as well, though not terribly often. I crochet a lot and sometimes post pictures, if I think the project ended up all right.

What you are passionate about: Horror fiction. I don't write it but I read/watch a lot of it and babble about it at anyone who will let me. Books in general. Singing. Heathenry. Language. There are other things, as I tend to be something of an obsessive and will latch onto a subject and bore everyone around me about it for weeks on end, but they come and go at sporadic intervals.

How you use Dreamwidth: I post about my life. I gripe about the library (I love it but sometimes people are foolish), I talk about the books I'm reading, I talk about my current crochet projects. Occasionally, there are thinky posts, but they tend to be about horror fiction and monsters.

A link to a recent post of yours: Here is me talking about people who have misconceptions about science fiction and here is me talking about Bride of Frankenstein, 'cause I do that a lot.

draigwen: (Default)
From: [personal profile] draigwen
Your identity: I'm Drac, a civil servant living in wet Wales. I'm a computer geek, a wannabe author and a wannabe musician.

What are you passionate about: My rats, writing, music, the Welsh language (which I'm attempting to learn and have been for the past five years or so)

How you use Dreamwidth: Mostly reading the posts of my friends and synfeeds. My account is mostly just twitter updates at the moment but I do intend to write more proper entries. This may mean that I'll write fairly boring 'this is what I did today' posts for a while, but when I first started my LJ I wrote pretty cool 'this is what I did today' posts and I need practice to get back to that. Unfortunately these tend to be locked posts and I do try to avoid locking posts as much as possible.

Example post: my most recent public non-twitter post - about my rats. I've recently written a perhaps more thoughtful post on going on strike, but that one's locked.

Journal on Dreamwidth to read: Off the top of my head I'd recommend [personal profile] yvi, [personal profile] afuna and [personal profile] sisyphus_rolling.

marina: (girly tubes)
From: [personal profile] marina
Your identity: Like it says in my bio, non-fannishly I am a USSR born Israeli Jewish girl post IDF service and currently triple majoring in Film, East Asian Studies and Sociology & Anthropology in Tel Aviv.
How you use Dreamwidth: My DW is sort of a reflection of my brain. So it contains a bit of everything - meta on being an immigrant/Israeli/Jewish, school related shenanigans, links to things I find interesting, movie reviews and picspams and various fandom content. I post pretty often - sometimes more than once a day.
What you are passionate about: Languages, visual art, poetry, writing. Knowledge, mainly. I am interested in people, in how they work and how they interact. The more I learn the more fascinated I am - with myself and with the world.
A link to a recent post of yours that is characteristic of your journal or writing style. Real Life meta: Cultural Differences Don't Work Like That, example of a pretty standard links-and-things post: Mega post is mega, movie reviews + meta about the IDF If you believe they put a man on the moon. I also have a masterlist of all my entries that have to do with stories/meta on my time in the IDF (I was a team commander in the Intelligence Corps).
A link to a journal on Dreamwidth you think people might enjoy reading, even if they don't know the writer personally. [personal profile] zvi! Everyone I know basically subscribes to her already.

viklikesfic: avatar me w/ trans flag, spiky hair, gender unclear, fun punky glasses & sarcastic expression to go w/purple ironic halo (Default)
From: [personal profile] viklikesfic
Your identity: I'm a poly, kinky, queer, feminist lesbian. I'm out about all those things here, which is kind of cool. If any of them make you go "yuck," you may not want to subscribe to my DW. I'm also a human rights activist, a liberal, a socialist, a pacifist, a vegetarian, white, cis-gendered, Southern, 25 years old, tall, left-handed, and glasses wearing.
What you are passionate about: Gender and sexuality. Feminism. Human rights. Intersectionality. Reading. Writing. Cooking. Baking. Academics. Independence. Yoga. Travel. Languages. Language. Organization. Ice cream. Snuggles.
How you use Dreamwidth: I came here initially through some fandom friends who thought I might find the platform more user friendly than LJ (they were right). I then came to see DW as a great way to integrate my fannish and non-fannish personalities, which I never did on LJ. Though there's still some disconnect, in that I'm using a fandom pseudonym and thus can't link to my "real life" blogs and things, I've been using DW as a place where I can not just talk about fandom and post fic but also as a great place for talk about non-fannish interests. I've found the new comms here to be really awesome for talking about the stuff I love, like yoga, reading, etc. and also like the way some fannish ideas are getting incorporated into non-fannish communities (like the home ec challenges, for example). I also use DW to run two communities, [community profile] feminist50 for discussion of feminist and woman-friendly books and [community profile] baltimore_md, which is self explanatory.
A link to a recent post of yours that is characteristic of your journal or writing style: I don't love this idea, just because my "writing style" is not the same as "what I post in my journal," if that makes sense? I like the idea of this meme because I'd love to meet cool people that I can chat with in comments, share interests with, etc. My journal isn't really in a "serious blog format," though. So I'll link you this with the caveat that most of the non-fandom content on my journal is just talking about my week. I do more of my non-fannish participation in communities.
A link to a journal on Dreamwidth you think people might enjoy reading, even if they don't know the writer personally: I've really been digging [personal profile] aurora lately. It's all about the figure skating squee these days, and the videos make me smile. If you like skating, take a look.

libitina: snake across an open book (Default)
From: [personal profile] libitina
from [personal profile] libitina

Your identity: I have more than one pseudonym - one for fannish things and journaling; one for kink; one for SCA; one for food blogging; and then there's my real life identity. I find it useful to not cross-pollinate, but every few years the system breaks down, and by now I'm pretty sure that anyone with a vested interest and three hours to sit down with google could connect them all - I still like that you have to work at it. Despite how careful I am about my name, I'm fairly open about being from Philadelphia because I use my journal to schedule events and co-ordinate transportation to things.

What you are passionate about: Would you believe that I wrote my classical studied dissertation (undergraduate) on cuttlefish? Cephalopods have done well for me, even bringing me to livejournal in the first place.

I have a food blog, and I'm rather passionate about maintaining my slacker attitude toward it (and that will continue until it doesn't). But it has no pictures. The recipes might be written as recipes, or they might be long, awkward narratives of doom. There's a whole tag for dubious food, where such things are explored as just how long you can leave meat and still eat it. I review restaurants and chocolate with such elegant verbiage as, "It was yummy." And yet, oddly, it is far more useful a thing than I ever thought it would be. It's a great way to pass on specific recipe, and even strangers from the internet seem to find it useful - who knew that there was a world-wide shortage of blogs talking about bridge snacks? NoCounterspace (re: identity - I refer people from journals to the blog, but I try to limit the spread of information in the other direction)

What else? I bind books (since high school). I enjoy random bits of 'folk' dancing - i.e. anything I can do barefoot and without a partner that isn't too rigorously athletic. I've been picking up random middle eastern 'belly' dancing classes since 1995.

And I enjoy bringing all those topics and pretty much any conversation to sex.

Dichotomies frustrate me.

How you use Dreamwidth: I'll write anything here. Very occasionally fic, sometimes fic recs. Links. Navel gazing. my grocery list. lists. Lots of lists for scheduling. Scheduling. And sometimes even more lists. Sometimes there are polls. It's a bit like treating my life as if I were one of The Sims.

A link to a recent post of yours that is characteristic of your journal or writing style. Yeah, it's pretty much all friendslocked. Oh, but I posted to [community profile] boilingwater recently. Eggs!

Passions: Probably the only thing I can, in general, say I'm passionate about is knowledge. Of all sorts. I also enjoy fiction, music, language (I majored in Linguistics, but I am actually still monolingual, sadly), drawing, design, and computers.

Usage: I probably read more than I write, but when I do write I tend to just write whatever I feel like. Which can include introspective posts, daily life rants, slightly more structured article-things, brief snippets of fannish ideas, etc. I keep trying to wrangle my life to a point where I can contribute more in the way of dev stuff, because I'd really like to (I am, actually, in the middle of finishing up a theme submission), but so far this hasn't happened yet.

Link: [personal profile] marina is someone I have really enjoyed reading and you might too.

Linguistics! I love languages and how they grow and change and interact with each other, even though I'm also monolingual (I'm trying to change that, I just don't succeed very much).

Also you have an elephant bouncing on a trampoline icon that endears me hugely.

zorkian: Icon full of binary ones and zeros in no pattern. (Default)
From: [personal profile] zorkian
Mememe: I'm Mark; 27, male, California. I do a lot of things -- probably more than I should, most of the time, but I do tend to keep busy and enjoy trying things a lot.

Passions: Communications, behavior of people (individuals and large groups), computers, gaming (console and PC), Warhammer, roleplaying (LARP and tabletop), ...

Usage: Actually I need to fix this... I don't tend to use my journal for positive, interesting things all that often. I really should and my wife tells me that I should, too, so it will probably have to happen.

I do maintain [community profile] the_2nd which is a community for political discussion (with a conservative/libertarian lean). In case that's interesting to you!

From: [personal profile] nacbrie
Your identity: Hi! I'm Nacbrie. I'm a science student, twenty years old but forty years young (these dang kids today!), and I'm originally from London but I've been living in Dublin since I was ten. At this stage, it's anyone's guess where I'm from. I'm also female and bi, but I don't think that should matter very much.

What you are passionate about: Science. Picking out the bad science in scifi, but loving it anyway. Reading, widely, and deeply where I can. Debating - online, on the telly, in a big room with college students wearing tuxedos and saying 'hegemony' a lot. And chocolate. Always, always, chocolate.

How you use Dreamwidth: I post about RL, about things which interest me (which usually intersect with the topics mentioned above), and about media fandom. I use Dreamwidth to communicate with others, and to find people who are interesting to read.

A link to a journal on Dreamwidth you think people might enjoy reading, even if they don't know the writer personally: [personal profile] oursin is always a source of items of interest and ticklish commentary.

recessional: a small blue-paisley teapot with a blue mug (Default)
From: [personal profile] recessional
Your identity: I go by M, Marwen, [personal profile] recessional; I'm a 25 year old queer polytheist mystic who grew up in Northern Canada and then ran away to the Wet Coast.

What you are passionate about: Theoretically, writing. Right now I'm mired in MDD and my anhedonia eats my head, so mostly I am passionate about how much I hate being depressed.

How you use Dreamwidth: Dreamwidth is my public journal: I do not as yet have any access-locked anything, and when I do it'll only be for [community profile] scifibigbang, because the entire point of DW is to be a more public space for me.

On my DW I do talk about some fannish stuff, but I'm not very active in "fandom". I babble about writing, and reading, and depression, and anything else that comes across my mind that I feel like talking about in public. I tend to average a post every one or two days so far, but that sometimes means a bunch of posts in one day and then long periods of silence.

A link to a recent post of yours that is characteristic of your journal or writing style:
Scenes from a Paper is a good representation of my mundane sort of chatter; I Never Used to Write Fanfic is an excellent example of me going off on a lot of chatter about stories and how I like to twist them; Winter Leaving Universe Description, despite the misspellings, is me babbling about my original stuff; carries the act, finally, is an example more of what happens when I go off on more formal, performative writing.

A link to a journal on Dreamwidth you think people might enjoy reading, even if they don't know the writer personally: I am REALLY enjoying [community profile] fucking_meds existence. >.>

effex: default (Default)
From: [personal profile] effex
Your identity: I'm Effex, a 25 year old USian currently living in Dallas*. I'm the graphic designer for a mid-sized retail company, a geek, a bookworm, an agnostic, queer, fannish, liberal/progressive, a feminist, an environmentalist, white, USian, and cis female.

* I've also lived in Iowa (for college, mostly), Southern California (Inland Empire, woo!) and Chicago (briefly).

What you are passionate about: Social justice, human rights, books (!!), paper (just... in general), history, science (particularly astronomy and physics), design, animals, storytelling, art, comics, human nature, SciFi and Fantasy, food, the inherent evil of the Papyrus typeface, etc.

How you use Dreamwidth: I do regular link/video/music/pic spams and book posts in addition to (the apparently much less frequent [pokes posting history]) art posts and fannish stuff (fanart, recposts, random acts of fiction). Sometimes I even talk about myself and my Expanded Thoughts on Things! But not often and usually under access lock, so.

Other interests that may occasionally get a mention: renfaires, ball-jointed dolls, incense crafting, book making, miniature horses, travel.

Sample post: This is my most recent Internet Readalong and this is my most recent book post.

Other journals:

* [personal profile] cimorene for shoes and book discussion.

* [edits too long list] Everyone else on my Follow Friday posts.

merisunshine36: white rose floating candle (Default)
From: [personal profile] merisunshine36
Your identity: I'm 25, female, African-American, originally from the midwestern United States but now on the East Coast, and a chronic victim of overscheduling.

What you are passionate about: My bike, food and beverage, Japanese language, finely tailored clothing, baby animals. Cinema and speculative fiction, especially by women and people of color.

How you use Dreamwidth: I've been primarily using it to cross-post star trek fanfiction, but I've decided to be more proactive about cross-posting all of my entries in order to widen my circle. Therefore, it's kind of on the impoverished side right now. My DW features fanfic, food posts, movie reviews, and meta, not necessarily in that order.

A link to a recent post of yours that is characteristic of your journal or writing style: Here is one of my food posts, and here is me at my meta rantiest.

From: [personal profile] majoline
Your identity: I'm Margaret. I am a bi cis-woman currently in a relationship with the bf for almost 6 years. I'm a Navy kid who grew up in Italy/England, so getting used the culture shock of living in Mississippi still happens.

What you are passionate about: computer culture, paganism, reading, fandom, family, linguistics, equal rights and crafting

How you use dreamwidth: Originally I was using DW as a mirror of my livejournal, but considering how much more active DW is for me, I think I'm going to stop allowing comments on my el-jay and try to move over here more. I still have a lot of journals/comms that I follow AND I paid for a permanent account, so I'm not going to get rid of it.

A link to a recent post of yours that is characteristic of your journal or writing style: Considering I haven't actually been here that long, if you want to find out anything about my writing you will have to check out the comments on my 3 sentence autobiography post.

My favorite community is [community profile] poetry and it's very non threatening! Worth checking out.

From: [personal profile] forthwritten
Your identity: non-white, English, queer, feminist, vegetarian, PhD student and apprentice academic, living in Nottingham by way of Liverpool, Winchester, Watford and Carlisle. MY research focus is on the British suffrage movement, but I also dabble in gender stuff.

What you are passionate about: Communication, languages, gender & sexuality, intersectionality, identity, feminism, equality, social justice, knowledge, the environment. I also like my rats, food, cycling and cheese (I treat it as a separate food group :D).

How you use Dreamwidth: As a record of how I spent my days, my Srs Thoughts On Research, wailing about my thesis, procrastinating and documenting the misadventures of my housemates.
