Partly inspired by the early 2000s efforts by fen to get other fen onto LiveJournal, tbh. Mostly I’m trying to think of how to get DW comms to be more active, and part of that is getting eyeballs over there

Question: if I rec something on and then link to that rec in the fic’s comments as both a “hey, look at this” for the author AND as a semi-sneaky way of trying to get more users onto DW, is that

Some fun stuff happening over at , including an Eerie, Indiana watchalong, several kink memes, and fic exchanges: doctorsidrat.dreamwidth.org/25

10 years ago I started using ad blockers because I thought ads were annoying. Now I think that's the _least_ important reason to use them.

I think we should call them "browser firewalls." That more accurately describes their purpose.

Here is the current fanfic rec resource list, with communities and sites that've updated within the last year: doctorsidrat.dreamwidth.org/25

Happy Friday! Do you know someone who regularly & consistently posts recs, either here, on , or somewhere else? Send me a link plz— I’m putting together a resource list!

Okay to boost & share!

I've been thinking about moving to Ohio in general, and after doing some research on rental prices, culture, and potential job salaries, I think it could be a good fit.

I need to go visit just to make sure, but I think it's a good place to start researching. Everyone seems to have nice things to say about it, and bonus points for being kinda centrally located to ALL of my family in the US

After giving myself a migraine for two days from the stress, I've decided on a place to focus on moving to:

Cincinnati!

So I have about 6-8 months to: 1) find a place I want to move to, 2) get a job there, 3) pack up my stuff & move

All of which are difficult things & just thinking about it makes me want to take a nap instead

& by “somewhere else” I mean “out of California” because I’m pretty sure I won’t be able to afford anything here on my own

So parents (who I live with) are definitely moving in the spring. Which means I either need to try & find a place here, move with them, or move somewhere else by myself

So I'm having fun writing little articles/stubs for early 2000s Star Wars fandom-- specifically about the Handmaiden Society and similar sites.

I wasn't part of that fandom when it happened, but if I HAD been online then, I totally would've been!

I painted my nails to hide some (art) paint stains and now...the nail polish is even messier than the paint was. 👻
