Hello, new and old readers of my journal alike! This post should cover some useful things.

About me )

About this journal )

Fannish and writing things )

So thanks to a combination of the friending meme over on Dreamwidth, Inception and Sherlock, I have a handful of new friends/readers who don't necessarily know much about me.

This is going to be a bit rambling and random because I'm not sure what you guys might/might not want to know about me. So here's a few facts to get you started.

Cut for probable epicness. )

Unbelievably jetlagged and suddenly quite surprised at how soon Christmas is.

Looking forward to new Supernatural at the start of the new year!

Trying to figure out what I'm going to do with my life especially over the next few months.

And of course, not very likely to catch up on DW and LJ posts from when I was gone.

Hi, folks! How are you all?

Okay. So the one complaint so far on [community profile] dwstones? Is that people aren't posting enough. So maybe I should post something about me, myself and I. How I got to Dreamwidth, and a thing or two that's important to me.

I got here via fandom. And I should point out that I'm a relative newbie to fandom with only about 18 months under my belt. I'm sure that you will hear a thing or two about my favourite fandom, which is popslash, in many subsequent posts. (For a quickie definition, though: popslash is slash about real people in the pop world, usually *Nsync, The Backstreet Boys and associated people. And slash is same-sex romantic/erotic fan fiction.)

The thing that I really want to do with my life is write. Actual words, my own non-fanfic words - and preferably make some kind of money at it. That would be awesome. I have ideas, but they feel "too big to write" and I'm rather intimidated about actually doing it. So I'm working on that particular thing.

I'm currently recovering from a major bout of depression and learning to cope with diabetes still, about nine months after I was diagnosed. Partly as a result of that, I'm currently even more obsessed than usual with self-help and self-development stuff, and trying to learn to navigate the Big Issues that get me stuck and get me upset. I'm also quite obsessed with a "destuckification expert" called Havi Brooks, who has a web site at The Fluent Self. So you may hear a thing or two about that as time goes on.

I'm spread rather wide over the internet at the moment. I have three Livejournals (currently all paid - ahem), one for personal, one for fannish, and one for writing stuff, a Twitter account which I'm just getting to grips with, a Facebook account I barely ever use, and a new WordPress blog (which at some point deserves a link).

I have a terrible habit of over-extending myself and as a result I'm always trying to rationalize and figure out what I should be committed to and what I should ditch. This seems to be a constantly ongoing process and there is never a clean slate, which I find somewhat distressing, but that's life for you.

I was quite keen on the clean slate thing here, and then I stupidly imported my LJ. Not sure why, follow the crowd I guess...

There is no real point to this entry, except to say one more hello, and give some info about myself! :)

  • If you are new to reading me - HELLO! Welcome to the madness. I am very excited to be here but I have no idea what I'm doing.
  • I write in bullet points. A lot.
  • I have added a bunch of people to my subscription list - way more than belong to my access list. As of thus far, though, I haven't made any locked posts, so you're not missing out on everything. That's as close to a "WTF policy" as I get really.
  • The journal import didn't go as smoothly as I would have liked and I'm not sure that I won't just delete all my old entries and tags in the end - I'm really dithering over what I want to use Dreamwidth for and how that relates to how I use Livejournal.
  • One aspect of this is that I'm trying to populate my access list with the OpenID accounts of people who are on my LJ flist. I was under the impression that the importer would do that - not the access filters, sure, but the access lists. Guess not. Ah well, that's a long job that I don't really want to be bothered with right now, so probably anything that my flist needs to see will stay on LJ for now.
  • That is mildly annoying though, and I should really look up to see if that's intentional or a bug or what.
  • My plan is to get a Premium Paid or maybe a Seed account when payment becomes an option. I really like it here.
  • I currently am subscribed to a bunch of communities, some fandom, some not - but people aren't really posting yet! There's lots of activity on [community profile] dreamchasers though, and it's lovely to see people popping up all over the place. If you're new like me, welcome to DW!
  • I hate my LJ profile and should really delete it.
  • I think that's all for now?
