yeah i really miss lj man. it was so great, but I definitely don’t go there anymore to consume fandom. But I was also primarily using LJ to read fanfiction and I don’t read as much fanfiction anymore
LJ was so great- You had communities for practically everything. Fic recs, pairings, graphic, cultural stuff, learning, pretty much anything. If there were other people out there in the world who liked it too, you could find them on LJ.
Tumblr is great, too, don’t get me wrong. But it doesn’t allow for a lot of types of posts or ease of searching that LJ did. There’s also the fact that you can’t really talk to more than one person at a time, and because of having to reblog to respond people often stop convos so they don’t clutter the dash or finish them in private asks.
Also, while Livejournal had an equal balance between textual and visual content, Tumblr is much more primarily visual. I myself often end up scrolling past text posts, especially in the tags, because of how often posts that would have been placed on a personal blog on LJ, are heavily mixed in with posts that would have been placed on a community here on tumblr.

sajde sae jhukta hai, yaara mein kya karu
tujhe mein rab dikhta hai
it’s kind of depressing how many communities on livejournal are dead or dying since everyone moved to tumblr- especially when there’s a lot that don’t have a tumblr counterpart.
ew this cranberry juice mix tastes like apple juice
bad enough I can’t just get pure cranberry juice
that stuff is deliciously bitter all right
I feel like this is a pattern with many dramas though, they either start off well and tank or start off meh and then pull a Hail Mary near the end.
It’s a rare drama that is paced, written, directed, and acted well and has characters that don’t make me want to maul them in their face.
Ughhh so I’m 7 episodes in to Fated To Love You and it’s like Cun Xi just continually swings from “inconsiderate but often kind” to the biggest asshole oh my god what is your problem it started out great in the first 3 eps but no I don’t know if I can take this. Like you are such a massive jerk.
I am not putting another 21 hours into this drama nope you can’t make me.

Punk rock mermaid for Jez over on Twitter! How could I resist drawing a merm? MERMS ARE MY LIFE.
You should totally watch leverage! Tho the fandom is small since the show is over ; ;
I’ve seen Leverage! Well, all but the last… 4 episodes. I don’t want it to end, I love absolutely everybody. Parker, Alec, and Eliot are one of my favorite trios ever. And I know, the fandom is very small!
