Testing My Cross-Posting!

Just testing my Dreamwidth cross-posting. I'll probably still post my fic over on LJ and then import it here, as I have so darned much I don't want to be setting up archive pages over here. If the inevitable happens and I someday abandon LJ, I'll just have to navigate via tags here. I refuse to redo all those links over here! :)

Anyway, I'll probably still write non-fic entries over there but may do some here and cross-post to get into the habit. Happily I've backed up my journal here and the majority of my fic is posted at AO3. Never put all your eggs in one basket!

I am not abandoning LJ for the foreseeable future, not with recently-paid icons and a paid account, not unless I have no choice. Right now it's still my choice. And I can check my DW Reading List here and keep up with people.

Is Tumblr where fandom has pretty much relocated? I really don't like that platform. Has something where discussion is encouraged emerged out there, or is it DW? Which most people don't use, though that may change.

Anyway, still on LJ, but also BradyGirl_12 on DW. What is the code on DW to make a tag like this: [profile] bradygirl? I tried dw user but that doesn't work. And what's the code for cuts? On LJ, it's lj-cut text= and lj-cut (bracketed, of course), but what is it on DW?

EDIT: Hmm, I used the lj user code and it came out looking like a DW name. Weird.

Anyway, slowly setting things up just in case. I can see something in the future with me posting fic here on DW and linking back to LJ for previous fic, and also using tags here to find stuff. I don't know yet.

Cross-posted to Dreamwidth. Comment on either entry as you wish. :)

yeah there's some special fancy way to get LJ names to show up on DW, but I can never remember how. It's sure to be in the help pages.

Hope you figure it all out. I have no clue how DW works. I have an account there, but can't remember the last time I actually went to the site.

I really don't like Tumblr. Have an account there, too, and I really liked the blogs that were artwork, but it's a lousy platform for discussion.

Yeah, I figure I'll keep hanging out here while getting re-acquainted with how things work over there. I still am a member of some active communities here on LJ and will continue as long as they do.

Yeah, Tumblr sucks for discussions.
