WOW it’s been TWO MONTHS since I posted. That seems insane because I actually have been mostly keeping up with DW! And with Tumblr at least enough to have my queue full, although I was never any good at it. But I’ve been very busy RL (holidays, then exams, then a randomly intense week at work) and then it felt somehow very difficult and taxing to post. IDK, it takes more social energy to do it the longer you’re out of the habit, and I did fall out of it.
...I mean. This is a predictable disaster for those of us who’ve been around long enough to remember Strikethrough and Boldthrough on LJ, to remember Archive Of Our Own wasn’t named that purely as a feminist reference but also because it’s necessary to protect our content. Also predictable for those of us watching FOSTA and SESTA, and the new EU laws, and Apple’s walled garden, and who’ve seen the way Patreon gatekeeps sex workers out of their ‘professional’ tier and Dreamwidth got kicked off Paypal way back when.
But it being predictable doesn’t make it any less sucky. I’m on Pillowfort and Dreamwidth as lokifan. I’m on Discord at lokifan #5709 and gonna try to be around there more.
Staying on Tumblr for the moment but I’m terrible at it already, and… well the plan to make an effort with the platform, and talk to the people I like there more, seems pointless now.
Please do add me! It’s always the worst part of these things, the attrition rate.This was originally posted at https://lokifan.dreamwidth.org/376402.html. Comment wherever you like :)
