So are a lot of people on Dreamwidth, because I’m about done with this environment?
Sadly no, the userbase on Dreamwidth is still fairly small. Of course, that’s not necessarily a reason not to take up there: people are precisely what we need! I’m arethinn there (of course). There are two general otherkin communities that I’m aware of, although both are very low traffic: otherkin and otherkin_haven. I don’t know about therian-oriented communities.
No, really, I’ve yet to find a social media platform I’ve liked as much as that one.
Sometimes I get such Livejournal nostalgia but it’s all sad & echoey in there now. I’d support your movement though. It could be very retro chic.
I realized how much I’ve missed Liveournal, and have been making an effort to update mine the last few months, but it’s so so echoey …
Yes please! It’s so hard to interact on Tumblr the way that the LiveJournal platform enables. Or rather - since I, like many, have been annoyed with LJ’s business practices and how they treat their users for some years now - how about all y’all go retro-forward-chic and come to Dreamwidth instead.
