Sign-ups are open at femgenficathon until April 16th.

I am late to the Poetry Month bandwagon, I know, but it is a beautiful spring day here today, which always puts me in mind of Cummings.

---

since feeling is first

since feeling is first
who pays any attention
to the syntax of things
will never wholly kiss you;

wholly to be a fool
while Spring is in the world

my blood approves,
and kisses are a far better fate
than wisdom
lady i swear by all flowers. Don't cry
--the best gesture of my brain is less than
your eyelids' flutter which says

we are for eachother: then
laugh, leaning back in my arms
for life's not a paragraph

And death i think is no parenthesis

-- E. E. Cummings

so you wanna move to dreamwidth?

I've been planning to make this post for ages - given that LJ's being somewhat robust today, now seems like a good time!

A note before I begin: this is not a post that wishes to convince the reluctant. Instead, its target audience is people who are dissatisfied with LJ, who've thought about moving, who've thought about setting up crossposting or centralising comments or whatnot, but aren't sure. I am going to tell you why I am super happy that I moved to Dreamwidth, but if you're perfectly content on LJ, this may not be of interest to you!

I came over to Dreamwidth in the first wave because it was new and shiny and exciting. Initially, I was a little concerned that it would turn out to be a bit of a fad, that participation would dwindle over time. While I think there are a lot of users who got accounts at the beginning have drifted away, overall quantity of content here is going up and up, and it's now not uncommon for there be more entries coming up on my DW reading list than my LJ one (especially in the mornings, for some reason!).

I thought it was a pretty cool site initially, but I've moved from that to wanting to draw little sparkly hearts around it. In a nutshell, by moving to Dreamwidth I've cut out most of the things that drive me crazy about LJ, whilst not having to feel like I've drifted away from LJ-based fandoms and friends.

these are a few of my favourite things about DreamwidthCollapse )

With regards to disabling/not disabling comments over on LJ, which I know is a thing people often feel undecided about - I'm really glad I have consolidated them. I like having everything in one place, and I like that place being Dreamwidth. I am sure that there are people who are less likely to comment because it's over here, which, well, is probably inevitable no matter how easy you make it. However, as a general thing I really haven't found that I get less response now I'm here, whether on fanwork posts, meta, or anything else.

I have four invite codes, if there's anyone around who still hasn't got them. Here they are, under the cut, you don't have to email me or anything. I'll strike through any that get used.

eta: I'm all out, but [personal profile] zvi has 91 more here.
