So, I finally caved and got a Dreamwidth Account (thanks [personal profile] x_los) which I will ... probably not use that often. I need to get a layout etc that makes this place feel like home, and honestly I'm not that interested in setting up a whole new life and set of friends/interests somewhere else. LJ is still home. But. A backup is good. And DW does have some things I find quite shiny. And, for all that I stuck out Strikethrough and all the subsequent (and earlier) wank, it's really Facebook that's got me running scared. Because Facebook? Is the devil.

So. Hi. Will crosspost from here but if you friend me please don't be offended if I don't get back to you ASAP. I'm still over on LJ, this is just the summer house.

Also Labor Government yay!

Hey [personal profile] alexwearspants, welcome to Dreamwidth! I'm here via the Latest things page. I seek to lure you to the Dark Side Dreamside. Go peek, and at least see what's out there before going off the grid. I see you're a Sherlock Holmes fan (hurrah!); you could find others over at [community profile] addme_fandom. And if you are looking to get oriented in the general community, or just to connect, you might enjoy stopping by [personal profile] synecdochic's weekly Monday Pride Thread. It's a place to post about your accomplishments from the past week and to cheer other people on. You can find yesterday's post here. I know I enjoy starting my week by reading other people's comments; there's just something about communal pride in the large and small that gives you a boost, you know? And you can post screened comments (i.e. only the poster, can read them, and she's very discreet) if you want to join in without the publicity.

What else? [personal profile] kate has put together an excellent general Dreamwidth starter kit. And you should definitely check out the official
Guide to Dreamwidth for Livejournal Users.

Hope that's enough to give you a taste of what's out there. Moving to a new place can be intimidating (I know; I just moved into a new apartment), but I think you'll find it worth your while. Dreamwidth's a pretty awesome place. And you can always lure your friends and communities to join you here. (The community promo codes let people come over en masse; ask and you shall receive).
