Another place to find new friends!

I love new friends! I subscribe to people that I think look interesting, or whom I have a lot in common with, or that I see commenting elsewhere and like the sound of, so if that happens to be you this post is an introduction of sorts. Of course you can read my profile, but this is extra stuff I guess?

Anyway, I'm 43 years old. Married to Jason who I met in the dark ages college. We have two sons, Jake and Erik. We have a cat, Pilsbury, and a dog, Mouse. I take a lot of pictures. I'm an LJ refugee. I started over there in 2001 and survived all sorts of drama but decided to make the switch in January 2017 because of the lack of secure pages and all that mess over there.

I post about all sorts of stuff. I battle depression, and anxiety. I'm an introvert but am pretty good at socializing when forced. I have a business making security blankets for kids, but it's been shut down for almost a year due to a bout with the aforementioned depression and anxiety.

Right now I'm ...
Watching: Nothing really. I've been reading a lot here lately. My DVR is getting quite crowded.
Reading: Working on my own book at the moment, though I just finished Furiously Happy by Jenny Lawson and I can't recommend it enough.

I can't think of anything else you might want to know. That's me in a nutshell. Stick around if you like, no worries if you don't. :)

I'm slowly getting as much as I can transferred over here to DW. I've got all the feeds done, and I think I've gotten all my friends who have also said they've made the leap. Quite frankly, DW seems to be more happening than LJ. This post is an excellent post that made a lot of sense, and I plan to follow a lot of the advice contained therein. 

I feel like overall DW is just less controversial than LJ. The administration doesn't seem to make decisions that upset a great deal of the userbase and they've been stable in their ownership and reliability. I honestly just want a place to put my journal entries and interact with people on occasion and this seems like a good one.

If you have communities or friends to recommend, please do so. I'm off to get lost in the rabbit hole of DW. :)

Sad day

With a heavy heart I am moving my journal to dreamwidth. I've been on LJ for 15 years, and weathered many "LJ is going down!" panics, but this one is different. This time I'm joining the mass exodus prompted by the servers being moved to Russia, and more concerning, the elimination of secure pages. I seriously doubt anyone's going to be data mining my journal, but the very idea makes me uncomfortable and I feel like I can no longer support LJ.

Instead I'll move to a paid account on DW and post there exclusively. I do have my account set to crosspost all of my entries, so technically my journal will be mirrored on LJ, but I won't be checking it or commenting there. I hope all of my friends make the switch as well so I can keep up with you. DW has very easy migration tools and it took less than an hour for them to import my 8,000+ entries, all their comments, and my complete profile.

I'm going through my friends list and looking for posts saying if they've moved to DW and what their username is there so I can add them. If I've missed you, please comment on the DW post and I'll add you posthaste. This post over there is public for exactly that reason.


Love, and happy new year!
