Happy Friday! Welcome to this week's salon post.
I've picked up a few new people on my access lists (and Dreamwidth has seen a lot of people return or check the place out), so here's a quick intro to the salon post idea. (Want to do the same thing in your journal? That'd be awesome, and feel free to drop a note here.)
I started these as a way to get some cross-pollination going in conversations that was more "Hey, I know neat people" rather than a topic-focused community. I put up a post on Friday morning (East Coast time), and people hang out in comments.
There are some tips and house rules under the cut tags below, but basically, it's fine to talk about any topic you'd like (though keeping them Safe For Work is appreciated on my end.)
You don't have to talk about my prompt for the week, and it's definitely encouraged to ask people for ideas or recs or whatever on whatever topic you're poking at.Topic of the week
Clearly, the topic for the week should be "What brought you to Dreamwidth" and/or "What's a feature or tip you think is nifty" or "What's a thing you're wondering about on the site?" (Support requests are great, but many people among my subscribers have been using the site a long time, and may have useful tips.)
I will also start a quick intros thread - there are a lot of fannish friending memes going around, but if you're looking for people interested in other topics, feel free to add your interests, and maybe find other folks. What I've been up to
I am moving apartments within my building on short notice (in under two weeks) due to some ongoing heating and other issues. I will be spending my weekend with boxes. Whee? ( Reminders and tips for making this post flow better ) ( House rules )
