Friending Frenzy

Just one more thing.

You have your winner post: https://therealljidol.livejournal.com/1048006.html

and the post where I say "Thank you" https://therealljidol.livejournal.com/1048208.html

But this one is special - this is a chance for you to say "Thank You" to each other, in the form of new friendships!

Maybe you've been lurking all season (and I know there were a number of people who were. I see the votes. I know who you are. :D)

Maybe you've just never gotten around to friending people and want to use this as a chance.

Maybe you want to link this to your own LJ/DW and have people come over so they can be making new friends!

LJ. DW. Google. Facebook. Ello. Twitter. Wherever it is that you want to make friends.... this would be the place to let folks know where to find you!!!

I'm clauderainsrm pretty much everywhere. Except FB. There I'm Gary Dreslinski.

(shhh it's a big secret!)

I'm into kicking hippies and torturing writers.

And posting about my wife. So pretty much what you've seen here. I don't post much in my personal LJ anymore. I know - bad LJer!! Or really anywhere but FB. But if you want to friend me in any of those places, I'll friend you back and who knows...

Facebook is the one place you'll never see me talking to internet friends, so this is sad news! That means I only get a window into your life when Idol is running!

You TOO can help resurrect LJ, just by being here. All year round. ;)

Yeah, that's part of the decision I need to make. The whole "if you stay on Livejournal it means (insert awful thing here)" really gets to me and creates a lot of conflict. Because I'm NOT that person. But if a lot of the people have left... then it becomes when is it just rearranging deck chairs and should you just rearrange them in a different place?

I'm a HUGE supporter and proponent of LiveJournal! I BELIEVE in this platform, as a creative place but also a place to connect with others.

I post regularly and read all the entries on my flist daily. I talk about my life, writing and reading. Various and assorted hobbies, interests, and current events.

Friend me and I'll friend you back!

If you're a Stephen King fan or just a fan of modern American storytelling in novel form - a group of us are going to read and discuss "IT" during the month of October. Not sure yet if we'll be doing so on our personal journals or if I'll try to launch a comm.

This is a big book - 1,100 pages but it's bigger than just the page length. I'm halfway through and some haven't even cracked it yet. But we aren't working on a strict chapter by chapter schedule and I may even posit that perhaps this book wasn't intended to be finished...

We would love to hear your thoughts!

And I'm happy to be friends with anyone :)

First congrats to marlawentmad.

Second congrats to Gary. An interesting season in which the big brouhaha was people getting pissed at LJ itself instead of at you or each other. :)

I'm obviously not on LJ anymore, but I did recently (kind of) start a blog at hellofromkate.com. I don't mix FB with online folks, but I have kindof been dabbling on twitter for a while @hellofromkate.

So there I am.

Group hug.

i'm totally stealing one of the green room throw pillows as a souvenir.

I love LJ, and I love Idol! Honestly though, Idol is my main focus on LJ. I do postoccasionally, but I am fairly quiet, so if you don't want to be inundated I'm the perfect friend for you. I will joyfully friend you back. Oh! And I am reading IT, and will be reading it with bleodswean and everyone else in October, and I'm thinking of working on an original story I have been working on for a while. I'm not sure if I'll be signing up for NANO or not, but I will probably be writing along with it if I can figure out how to open up another LJ account.

I'm always delighted to make new friends!

I am only on LJ and happy to friend anyone out of this maddening crowd of people brought together in Idol. I've not been journaling much lately as I'm trying to process some other big idea that I can't quite define yet, but maybe I'll start using my words to work on it.

I will be happy to friend anyone here at LJ, (who is not already my friend), or at FB. PM me, and I will give you my Facebook name. I got hacked once on LJ by an unhappy in-law relative, so I am more careful these days. FB is my go-to hangout these days, but I do post to LJ at least once a week. My sequel book comes out in about a week, so yayyyyy!!!
Gary, I am not sure how to link it to the LJ Idol store, but if you can help me w that, I would be grateful.

I wish I felt confident in LiveJournal. It's the whole Russian element that is such a question mark, and the fact that there are apparently NO Western admins or even employees with the service that feels really disturbing.

I'm here for the time being but how long that will last is just a guess.

I'm also available on Dreamwidth under the same name and with nearly all of the same posts.

I'm also available on twitter under the same name and with considerably shorter posts.

I'm also available on tumblr under the name nycpenpusher with considerably more political posts

I'm also available on instagram under the name nycpenpusher with considerably more photo posts

I'm also available on Facebook, but do you really want facebook?

Meanwhile, have a great autumn and holiday season!

After the revelations about Russians buying ads and subverting social media, I have less confidence in Facebook and its tone-deaf Western admins who don't react to anything until they're forced to. LJ may be Russian-owned, but it's not important enough to subvert.

I'm jake67jake here and DW, and twitter (but im never there).  I dont tumble or insta or whatever some of the new things are.  Im on FB, but keep it pretty separate.  I may revisit thst decision.


I post very infrequently (very bad LJer) usually about my personal life.  Will accept pretty much anyone as friends if asked :)...

I'm halfshellvenus here and at Dreamwidth and Twitter (though I don't keep up with Twitter very well.

I'm pretty active on LiveJournal, barring the kind of nexus of insane work and family health issues (as in, this last month!)

I usually post ever week or so at LJ and DW, and I read my friends-list here at LJ regularly. Less often at DW, where hardly anyone seems to interact with anyone else.

I've been fandom-oriented in the past, and post slashy or other fanfiction once in awhile. VERY infrequently nowadays, since I'm not really "in" any fandoms right now and Idol uses up most of my writing energy. But it could happen, and if so, there will be adequate header flags if you want to skip over those. ;)

I talk about my family, about books and TV, about movies, about music. Sometimes politics (I'm about a middle-of-the-road liberal), sometimes cycling, outdoorsy stuff, etc.

I'm pretty easy-going, at least online, and enjoying chatting! All are welcome, and I generally will friend back pretty much any non-bot English-language posters. :)
