Yes, I drifted away from LJ/DW, entertaining myself with the frivolity of Farcebook and the supposedly serious environs of Medium. I even used my wallet name on Twitter.

Meh.

After a while it felt like I was exposed, my self raw for the world to abuse, judged for my name, gender, gender presentation, age, disability and occupation rather than the content I wrote. I'm not used to having my personal and professional life so damned intertwined.

I have decided that my primary posting location will be Dreamwidth, because fuck Russia.

Most of my stuff will stay friends only. My paranoia is starting to get tweaked by the creeps in the White House and Congress.

I would like to offer a smack upside the head to all the people who have been using my wallet name and my pseudonym interchangeably. It is very uncomfortable, especially nowadays, especially as I'm finally allowing myself to explore why I don't fit my birth gender identity. (People who've known me a long time know that I haven't been comfortable as "female" for most of my life, but don't have a burning need to perform masculinity either.)

Anyway, hi to people I haven't talked to in a while.

Welcome back;>! I admit, I don't understand the apparent need folks today have to constantly be "connected" for the sake of connectivity. Journals such as this, to me allow folks to share ideas and experiences without becoming emotional "vampires" that IMMHO most of modern communication media creatss.
Glad you're back her!
Cheers,
Pat

No worries. I only hope that I keep most of the folk I follow, hoping they also move to Dreamwidth

Welcome back. You've been in my thoughts, lately. I've been wondering how you've been doing.
