Friending meme
I've seen this on several of my flist's LJs, and I've just added myself there - it's better than just complaining LJ's gone quiet, after all!

LJ Is Alive!
A Multifandom LiveJournal Friending Meme
Tumblr is great, but my fandom heart is in LJ.

It's getting huge, and I'm delighted to see some of my flist meeting others of my flist. I'm here, for later reference.

It really is better than sitting back and letting nothing happen.

I agree. Though the extreme youth of so many of the folks there disconcerts me! I saw one reference to 32 as "old"!

I'm delighted most people are over twenty and can put a decent sentence together!

My fannishness knows no age limit, but I draw the line at bad grammar and spelling errors.

I agree. There were a couple I couldn't cope with - I find it hard to manage communication with folks who don't know what a capital letter is.

Great idea. I'm going to add myself too.

It's one way to counteract people drifting away.

Always good news. If dealing with bad stuff. *g*

I wasn't going to do it and then I thought LJ is so quiet that it might actually make *me* post more!

I know what you mean about the extreme youth :)

I feel very, very old over there. But, heck, that's the norm for my life as a geriatric postgrad anyway!

I've been looking at it and I'm actually wondering if LJ is the place for me any more. I don't have time for fic any more and don't really participate in fandom for the same reason. Even though I squee all the time with My Showz.

However, I will post. I agree that it's better than letting LJ die. Mind you, the migration of a lot of people to DW has a lot to do with it. Boo. I post my stuff over there, but here's where my heart lies. :(
