Here's the plan: every Friday, let's recommend some people and/or communities to follow on Dreamwidth. That's it. No complicated rules, no "pass this on to 7.328 friends or your cat will die". Just introduce us to some new things to read.
(Whom am I quoting?)You can follow all recommendations on http://www.dreamwidth.org/latest?feed=followfriday
I'm posting this before looking myself at the Follow Friday
-feed and knowing this will take some time as it should be a longer entry, I'm just pushing away the thought of all the homework that wants to be done today. (I've also some TMI to share -maybe- in a later entry. It has nothing to do with it, but you gals might be interested in whining about menstruation
from time to time.)
Let's face it: there are many interesting communities out there and luckily
there are not all hyper-active or I'd be flooded by my reading list!
まず、let's start with a freshly created community that actually is important to me. It's name, a_paris
, speaks for itself. I know some of you out there are interested what's going on in Paris, so don't leave me alone and venez a_paris
! (For my friends: Yes, this is a literal invitation. It's been some time since I've seen most of you!)
I've also a special recommendation for schattenstern
which comes second in this list: newgameplus
(No, I'm not following it, it's just for you!)
There's also a 2nd add-on to my last Follow Friday
-post: After harrypotter
I stumbled upon harrylovesdraco
. (By the way, have a fic: Angelina has a night out with her friends, and it is fun (mostly)[Gen, G]
) Have I talked yet about hp_fanfiction
Most of you know this community from some of my previous (personal) entries already, but let's not forget about bookcrossing
as bookcrossing is one of my favourite past-times after all. (Which reminds me I should go back and write a new entry on hobbies, since I actually remembered something and only need to find out how to fit it again into my life. But that's not to be discussed in this highly official entry. *pouts* Although I could point to it by promoting hoerbuecher
So, let's get to the core. (What, you have thought this wouldn't actually get long and I'd be finishing to babble by now?)
Since yesterday was the first day of procrastination
and today is yesterday's tomorrow, we should all get ready to pick up our to-do-lists again and... do_it
have done my share yesterday. *pulls a snobby face*)
Most of you know about my love for languages (and my absolute failing to get rules stuck in my head) and I've already talked to you about how much fun the Language Learner's Forum
is. It really helps me to get a grip on myself and work on my languages -all of them-, but also reconsider my learning techniques once in a while, try out new ones and improve my learning experience. I've found during the past days some communities on dreamwidth too, let's see what they can give:
I'm not a linguist (and don't think I ever want to be), but linguaphiles
is open to everyone interested in languages as its name suggests and I am curious about what discussions we might witness there. The concept of languageclub
is really nice, though it may get spam-loaden when the number of members starts to grow. Haven't written my presentation yet, probably someone should prompt me to do so. At some point. (Is it yet again Procrastination Day?)
Japanese-wise we have...
's name says it all, doesn't it?
.Handy and helpful nihongo
has already been good support for stressed me.
.I'm not sure of its legality, but jmusic
gives at least inspiration of what different
Japanese music one can listen to - and you knwo immersion
is win, right? And while talking about immersion asiandramas
might be an inspiration for series, too, though the profile doesn't say anything about its target.
I'll try to make next week a point on (fan)fiction-related communities and my feeds, as time flies by
like a mosquito
, maybe I'll include all the other random interesting communities, too, depending on time and
and entry length.
Feel free to comment, if you have something, or anything, really, to say.
