Hello ConFab people!

I heard that the Tumblr corporate overlords are up to shenanigans (not the good kind) and that several folks are coming to DW as an alternative.

Seeing so much activity on DW over the past few days made me think of my fannish friends from ConFab and I began wondering if you were thinking of using DW, too. If so, please join in this post to connect with other ConFab attendees. Past, present, and future attendees are welcome!

Simply cut & paste the form in the text box below into a new comment to this post, add/remove whatever you'd like. Then scan through other replies and see who you recognize (or perhaps meet someone entirely new!). :)

FYI - I've copied some of this meme format from a very active one that's going on over here on snickfic's journal, if you're looking to expand your DW reading list (think of LJ's "flist") you may want to check it out!
For those of you new to DW, or maybe you haven't used it in a while, here's another post full of useful info for people migrating from Tumblr.

I post and I read posts: as frequently as time allows (which isn't a very specific answer, I know, but that's how my life goes).

I want to find people that post about: I don't want to give a very limiting answer on this one. I prefer reading posts about dSC6D, sure, but if you're in my DW circle I'll look at whatever you post as time allows.

"Due South adjacent"! <3 <3 <3

*scampers off to add you to my DW Circle*

ETA: I've scampered back after reading your DW profile and seeing that [personal profile] aurumcalendula is in your Circle. Have you seen the due South vid she made for me? "I Just Want You to Know Who I AM" -- a due South vid.

From: [personal profile] ride_4ever
Ah. Then I missed meeting you by one year...and it was because of due South. I was registered for the 2012 VividCon...that was actually supposed to be my first VividCon...but then the RCW 139 concomm announced the date for the 2012 RCW 139 (the all due South con in Toronto) and it was the same time as VividCon...and due South is always first in my heart, so I had to cancel my 2012 VividCon attendance and went to Toronto.

I will totes be there for ConFabCon in October 2019 (I already wrote "ConFabCon" at the top of the October page on my 2019 calendar). And when I first learned that it would be at what was formerly the VividCon hotel I gave a little squee of delight at the familiarity of it.

Hi! :D I actually just remade my DW a few months ago to try and start journaling again. Fingers crossed having a bigger flist will help me remember to check it more!

From: [personal profile] hannah
It was someone doing a sort of disco move, holding their hands together and moving them diagonally down their chest from their right shoulder to their left hip, then left shoulder down to right hip, while standing in place and swaying their hips. So I jumped in and joked, "Invisible kayak!" and began rowing my way across the dance floor.
