A Heads Up

I will likely be drifting away from LJ/DW.

I have been less active on LJ and DW than I once was for some time, and most of the core group of fellow fangirls I bonded with back around 2004 has moved on to disparate things, etc., so I don't really feel much community here anymore. I rarely comment on others' journals these days and, unsurprisingly, receive almost no comments myself, and it feels a bit like shouting into the wind.

Therefore, I have been and will probably be more actively transitioning to other outlets. My fic will probably become more centered on AO3 (where I'm also labingi). My fannish meta will likely stay here for now, but if AO3 continues to support essays, my more serious fan essays will probably drift there too. Reviews or more general meta will likely end up on my blog at Goodreads or my more formal posts at the Geek Girl Project. Daily life stuff and movie updates are mostly going to Facebook. This feels very fragmented, but it seems to be how things are panning out in terms of fitting the right material to the right audience.

I expect I'll continue at least posting links to other platforms here for quite a while, and I'll update as my move evolves. This is just my first heads up.

Yeah, I understand the feeling that LJ/DW is kind of ending. I feel disconnected from it these days, and most people I knew here have scattered as well. I still write on LJ/DW often, but it's out of the need for a semi-private venue for posts I don't want to obsess over more than the sense that I have a group of casual/close/casual-becoming-close friends of my current fandoms who are having an ongoing conversation. It's a sad loss.

I should probably do the same thing as you and switch to Goodreads for reviews...

I haven't joined yet, but I'm looking to it for reviews increasingly often. It's really nice that someone's come up with a non-Amazon venue for this sort of thing.
