Heeeey LJ, what's happening?  
Well, I'm back. AND THIS TIME I MEAN IT.

I'm just done with Tumblr and its pretentious douchebaggery and shit. I miss the proper fandomy fun we used to have here. And a place to vent my thoughts and keep it secluded from prying eyes.

But first, I'm gonna need a new layout. And a mood theme. And icons.

Good thing I kept my paid account on I guess!

ARE PEOPLE STILL ALIVE IN HERE? Or am I gonna have to search for a new flist? ;)

Hahaha there is something in the air, people are suddenly flocking back to LJ! :D :D

It's pure MAGIC! Haha. Besides it flaws, LJ really is the best social platform in terms of fandoms and other interests and stuff though. It's just so much more organised. I missed the comment threads the most, omgggg.

It is indeed! I'm happy for everybody who returns. I mean, I "saw" you on tumblr and all, but it's like you said - just not the same kind of place :))
Leonieleetje on October 2nd, 2013 07:59 pm (UTC)
It really isn't. I love love love the pretty on Tumblr, but uuuggh people get such ginormous egos on there, once they get reblogged a lot. And I hate that you can't filter out the crazy in the tags, nor that you can filter your dashboard. And then when you unfollow someone, they get all butt hurt about it because apparently they all wanna be tumblr famous and get as many followers as possible, uuuuughhh.

YAY LJ. We just gotta nudge people into posting again ;)

Welcome back!

I must admit I post a lot less often than before, as there are fewer active people around here nowadays. However, I miss "the old days" of a more active LJ, so it's good to know that there'll be more posts from you now.

Also, in my opinion LJ is a place where you make friends, whereas on most other social sites you just make acquaintances - as in, you only get to know them through common interests, and you often don't get to know more about them than their fandom likes and dislikes. For me that sort of "friendship" is too superficial, and I like how LJ can be more personal, so to speak.

But, enough serious talk like that. So glad to have you back!

Thank you darling!

We just gotta start a movement! Get the band back together and all that jazz ;) I never expected people to actually comment on this post and woah, people are still willing and do miss this place also, so why not try to get it to become more active again? :D

Exactly, LJ makes you truly connect to people. Yes, you friend each other because of a certain interest at first, but because this is a journal-style social media network, you actually learn more about each other because people don't just blog fandom stuff/pictures, they also post about their lives and whatever tickles their fancy and then you can actually discuss things with each other. It's just great!

Vaguely here, here - I was rereading some random old fic of mine a few days ago ('cause I haven't written since last year's Yuletide and I've sort of forgotten what it's like), and thought of you :)
Leonieleetje on October 2nd, 2013 08:00 pm (UTC)
OMG LIZZIE HI. That's so funny, I was actually wondering about you and what you're upto yesterday as well! Haha.

Lizziethedevilchicken on October 3rd, 2013 09:12 am (UTC)
Oh, y'know, busy and tired! I work too much, have limited outlets for fangirlishness and I miss peoples I used to know on LJ 'cause it seems like everyone migrated to Dreamwidth/Tumblr/Twitter/Facebook. Cue Lizzie with the world's biggest sadface ;)

How's you? It's been just about foreeeever!
Leonieleetje on October 6th, 2013 09:45 pm (UTC)
No worries, I shall keep you entertained in the fangirling department! What are you into these days? ;)

I'M GOOD. Leaving for California in the morning, in fact! So exciteeeeeeeed.

See that's the thing. If only Tumblr had a filter option for your dashboard. It could be so much easier to handle! Now I'm just aggravated that I have to unfollow people that I only share half my interests with because I can't filter out certain tags from appearing on my dashboard, add ons like Tumblr Savior don't cut it either.

So how've you been! :) Still posting lovely pictures I see!

Tumblr is for over-excitable fangirls (and boys). Great place for GIFs though! Your Tweets inspired me to log in after 20000 months. Haha.
Leonieleetje on October 2nd, 2013 08:08 pm (UTC)
fangirls and boys who get overblown egos if they get a little "tumblr famous" and then think the sun shines out of their own arses. Ugggh. I do love the GIFs, I kinda started to make them myself! But it's sooo time-consuming, lol.

I'm glad my tweets inspired you! This is good news! LJ needs to become more lively again! Go forth and post and spread the message!

Hey sweetie! :-D *blows kisses from the neighborly country*

I'm on tumblr only to see pretty pictures and favoriting a gazillion things, but yeah, LJ is awesome with the commenting - tumblr seems rather clumsy and short compared to this place... it's more a fandom place for the people who need short visual buzzes and quick fame, at least that's what it seems like. Anyway, I also post rarely (RL, I curse you *shakes fist at it*), but otherwise am hale. Wheee!
Leonieleetje on October 6th, 2013 09:44 pm (UTC)

Agreed with what you're saying. Tumblr is shallow, yus. Good to see you still around though :)

Tumbrl gets boring real fast. I too decided to retreat there long ago. Need to do comeback here too plus made an account to Instagram. ^^
