Random randomness?!

I'm away from LJ for a day and I come back and there was a randomness posting day?! And I missed it?!! Boooooo!...though also YAAAY! Awesomesauce because lots of posts!! \o/ though...boooo, no way I'm going to have a chance to comment because I'm with my family (on the other side of the country) and spending time on the computer instead of with them is probably not a great thing. But then again...you guys are family too!

LJ is still wonderful. Even with Twitter and tumblr I think this is the best place to have really good discussions and get to know people. And make detailed posts and feel like a part of a real community. *hearts* the LJ community.

I've been thinking we might need an "active" LJ user friending thingy because I think there are more and more fans (re) discovering LJ and people might want to know who's out there. Maybe?

*hugs* ya all.

Most definitely with you there. It's infinitely easier to hold discourse on LJ -- tumble is but a picture book, and 140 character limits don't make for in-depth discussions. ;)

Also agree with you on a possible friending meme. :D

HAPPY VACATIONING!! ♥

Yes yes - tumblr as a picture book. I flip through the pages with *hearts* in my eyes most of the time. :)

With the friending thing, I'm wondering if it might be about peeps who are active (and don't mind new followers) listing themselves in the comments - and people who might be new to LJ (coming over from tumblr, or just want to see more people on their flist) take a look and can see who to follow. Hmmm....might even be able to include comms. *headscratch* not sure....

My vacation is off to a good start!

SNAP! I was offline last night and now that I'm here I've released that I've missed all the Random LJ posts and games...*cries quietly in the corner*
9th-Jul-2014 12:56 pm (UTC)
You haven't missed them, they're all still here! Read! Comment! Post! :)

Absolutely. Having taken a mostly hiatus from my already patchy Tumblr existence, I sort of feel like it's in the same category as bas jumping for me--often cool and exciting, but traumatic pain I do not need in my life. XD

And you know I'm down for anything that networks and tightens LJ's neighborhoods! BLOCK PARTY, ANYONE??

often cool and exciting, but traumatic pain I do not need in my life.

Oh so true. I find I have to been in a certain frame of mind when I delve into tumblr. Often I'm pleasantly surprised when I go on. The people I follow tend to blog and re-blog great stuff.

Yay! Block party! :D

I'm always gonna love LJ and the community here. ♥
10th-Jul-2014 11:15 am (UTC)
Me too! <3
9th-Jul-2014 02:34 pm (UTC)
I like Tumblr for the pretty and Twitter for the immediacy, but nothing beats LJ for community. This is where it's at!
9th-Jul-2014 03:54 pm (UTC)
agreed on all counts ♥
9th-Jul-2014 02:36 pm (UTC)
I guess I'm not into posting as much as I used to in my own LJ. The last few posts I made (with this LJ name) got exactly zero comments so I'm just meh about it. I do enjoy reading your posts and commenting here and a few other journals I follow :)

Hope you're having a great vacay!

Yeah, it makes it less fun when not many people comment - though I'm sure everyone is reading! It was nice to se you back on LJ! :D

I'm having a lovely time! Nice and relaxing. :))
9th-Jul-2014 03:23 pm (UTC)
Here here, with you on everything you said, and hey, we are family too ;) but I wouldn't spend the evening ogling the random lol, family might get annoyed ;)

The last one stir_of_echoes did went viral, she ended up with 700 odd comments, lol.

*squishes* have a great time away :D
10th-Jul-2014 11:22 am (UTC)
Ha - family can get a little annoyed. I sneak on every now and then (usually when everyone else is on-line. Even my mum!).

And wow 700 comments!! I missed that one...(runs of to check it out).

And thanks! I'm having a lovely time so far. :)
9th-Jul-2014 03:36 pm (UTC)
i am only here and Twitter, i enjoy reading your posts :). have a great vacation <3
10th-Jul-2014 11:24 am (UTC)
Thanks and thanks! :DD

I think your journal is one of the best places for discussions and friendly interaction ;). I just hope you'll recover from the funk the last season and especially the final put you in and that you're going to continue with your episode reviews for season 10. LJ would be a lot less sparkly without them! ♥.
10th-Jul-2014 11:26 am (UTC)
Oh thank you honey. That's a lovely thing to say. :) I'm sure I will recover from the funk of the last season. The spoilers sound a little promising. I really hope to continue to do the reactions/reviews because I really enjoy the chat. :))

Here's to a great S10!
9th-Jul-2014 03:56 pm (UTC)
LJ is where the ♥ is

hope you're having a wonderful time with fam!
10th-Jul-2014 11:27 am (UTC)
It is!! :))

Thanks! Lovely time so far. <3

Same experience here!! I was away from LJ for a few days actually, so much family drama going on and my 2 dogs have been keeping me very busy lol. But there is lots of awesomeness waiting for me, so I guess I don't mind too much! (I just feel bad for making people think I was being antisocial ;)).

I love LJ too. I'm not on Twitter because I still dislike the format and it's just too much to keep up with (besides LJ I'm also on Facebook and Tumblr), and I like Tumblr but it's just not the same as LJ. At least it's easier to post long discussions, fic, and have conversations on LJ.

Love you, hon! *hugs*

I seem to have a lot of family drama going on too (that will potentially hit the fan tomorrow.../o\). Hope all ok for you - with your family and dogs.

Twitter took me a bit of getting used to. I like it to keep up to date with all the fandom going ons...:)

*huggggssss*
xx.

Ha... it should be! :)

hehe...boo family sometimes...;) (tho nice at the moment..*g*)

Oopsie... looks like I missed the randomness posting day too...
*looks sheeepishly*

But you're so right about LJ still being wonderful, o dear Mme Vidding Queen. And [though, they have their perks,] Twitter + Tumblr are not everyone's cup of tea...
*raises hand theatrically*

The more I appreciate my Good Ole LJ and the way we are becoming friends here - especially in Teh Hottie Show fandom.
*nods**nods*

So enjoy the time off with your family, dear and thx for your umm... 'belated' randomness, meep.^^
*huggles*

Hope your having a great time with the family! *hugs*

LJ's definitely my platform of choice for all the reasons you list. I felt like the activity on LJ was dying down, but my flist got a good boost from the friending meme that stir_of_echoes hosted. :)
11th-Jul-2014 11:34 am (UTC)
Hi! I'm having a lovely time. :)) Hectic, but nice.

And I am wondering how on earth I missed that friending meme! I can't believe it. But it's great that there was one - it's a cool way to find new friends! :))
