copy and pasting from my tumblr:
Post-WisCon there is always a flurry of adding folks on all of the platforms which is awesome! And I figure it’s a great opportunity, once a year, to recap where I am, how I use each site, if you should add me there, etc. So here goes (and I’ll link this about):
Tumblr (sophygurl): This is the site I use most often. I do occasionally make personal texty posts, but the great majority of my posts are reblogs. Primarily fandom related (allll of the TV shows, and sometimes movies and books). Also signal boosting important causes, puns, memes, cat pics, and genderqueer/genderbending pics.
As far as keeping up with my dash - I’m erratic. I might skip whole days in a row and then spend an entire 12 hours reblogging everything on my dash. I try to remember to go specifically to particular friend’s blogs every now and then because I almost never get caught up on even a day’s worth of posts anymore. I keep finding too many interesting people to add!
Please do feel free to add me, but also please feel free not to if you’re just not into the content I post. We can be friends elsewhere and not be tumblr mutuals - I won’t be offended. If you do add me - a quick note reminding me who you are if we met at WisCon or from another site is awesome as I have memory problems.
Facebook (my real first and last name - ask if you don’t know it): Probably the site I use second most frequently. But you should know that I am not religious about keeping up to date on FB. I don’t even change the timeline feed to include everyone or sort it by date or whatever because I kinda like the randomosity of it all. I post probably equal parts short personal things (mostly complaining about my health tbh) and reblogs of cool shit or political shit I agree with.
Feel free to add me, and as long as you remind me who you are, I will add back.
I also tend to use FB as a messaging service because I’m not a texter. So that’s a good place to get ahold of me online if you need my attention quick!
Twitter (sophygurl): My tendencies with twitter are: use it a lot shortly before, during, and after WisCon. Use it a lot during Big Brother season. Use it sparingly otherwise. I’m thinking that might change and I might be starting to use it more now, but we’ll see what happens come fall (BB season starts up soon after con-flurry starts to fade).
Again, add away or not - mute all the BB nonsense if you came for the feminism and don’t care to stay for the reality TV. Whatever. It’s all good.
Livejournal (sophy): This used to my home online. I don’t go there as often as I used to, but I still have warm feelings for the place. Often, if I want to make a long more deeply emotional post, I still go there. Same rules apply - add me if you wish, remind me who you are, etc.
Dreamwidth (sophygurl): I use this even less frequently than LJ and really only go there to read posts anymore, so only add me there if you post things there that you don’t cross-post elsewhere so that I can read that content when I remember to go there. No need to add me there to read what I have to say because anything I say there is cross-posted elsewhere.
Blog-reading: If you have a non-tumblr, non-LJ/DW blog, please feel free to tell me about it! I do have a blog reader and I do have a “people I know” folder there that I try to get to on at least a monthly basis. I have no such animal to reciprocate with at the moment.
Private contact: If you’d like my email address, phone number, whatever, lmk. I almost never use the phone, tho, so email and these other sites here are much better ways to reach me.
General info about engaging with me online:
I feel shy about adding people first. Sometimes I do it, but I super appreciate it when ppl I’ve interacted with add me because then I know I’m not just being an annoying creeper and feel comfy adding back and interacting with you!
I’m mostly homebound due to chronic illness, so the internet is a big part of my socialization. However, that same chronic illness sometimes makes it so that I’m away from the net for days at a time, too.
I’m an extrovert stuck in an introvert’s body, basically, so I love love love interactions of all kinds. Fill my inbox! Give me comments! Send me private messages! It will make me day.
I 100% get why this isn’t true for most people - but I actually don’t mind at all mixing my various online and real life identities, so you can call me Rosemary or sophy in person or online and it’s all good.
Speaking of identities… I’m a cis genderqueer woman, some form of non-monosexual/romantic orientation, poly, disabled, fat, mentally ill, cat person, feminist, leo, usually enfp but sometimes enfj or infp/j, single, childless auntie, living with my platonic queer poly tribe, major TV fan, dorky, liberal, mystic agnostic, critical fan of problematic things.
