The import from Livejournal so far seems to have gone without noticeable issues, and all my posts appear to be here. I am relieved. And happy to see so many familiar icons and handles. Hello, hello! Hi, everybody!

I am also thinking I would like to post more regularly again. It's new-toy syndrome, but also a factor of this year in general, in which I've been both going back to roots and discovering new shoots and branches. Grounding myself, so I can fly higher. And writing personal blog entries (as opposed to public essays) seems like a thing I should get back to doing.

People have missed the horse neep, for one thing. And there are ruminations on life and politics and such that really do need more scope than a twitter feed, even if one has mastered the art of the megathread.

We'll see how it goes. But I like the feel of this. It's a way forward, grounded in a useful part of the past. I like that, too.

I like the new place! The paint colors are very soothing. :)

Congrats on jumping the wall.

I know a lot of people, in moving over, have said they hope there is a rebirth in what we all had at Livejournal once. That great writing community. I hope it will happen.

Hooray! Nice to see you here, and count me among those missing the horse neep and wondering how you and the herd have been.

Greetings. I'm going to try to remember to check in here. Facebook will probably continue to be the default, though.

I'm hoping for a rebirth of discussion after the new move to DW! But darn, that means I need to post more....

It is really nice to see DW picking up- It's such a great format for chatter, even as FB is 'easier' in some ways

I'm glad to see people moving here. I've just finishing purging my LJ. I'm not deleting it yet, because there are still a couple of people there I want to stay in touch with, but all my posts are gone now.

I still have to figure out how to import my LJ logs. I'm getting an error message I don't understand, and don't have the bandwidth at the moment to wrestle with it.

Hoping this works out nicely as our new home.

Thanks so much for adding me to your circle. It's going to take a while to get used to this site.

Here's hoping the mass exodus shakes up LJ. (yeah, I'm vindictive that way. ;-) )

I'm here! Waiting for the import to finish, but all seems to be going okay, just slowly.

I read the DW Diversity statement and liked it -- this is the place for us!

It does strike me, too, that this is an opportunity to "begin anew" with posting.

Much love to all!

I was feeling the same, although somewhat reversed. I was doing a lot of personal blogging on LJ, but I'm hoping DW will motivate me to blog more about other things, comics and movies and books and psychology.

Well, it took less than two weeks for me to find the "Reading Page." So, I'll call that a win!

I concur with all you said about blogging here. I am finding social media can suck the life out of you. Huge open energy portal. I know I need time and solid space to relaunch -- but connection is still so important in succeeding at that too.

So, yay! :-)

I'm so glad to see you here! I've been lurking forever on lj but haven't said hi before.

I really like dreamwidth. Tumblr is too--yelly and uncivil and there's no real conversation there.
