It's been ages since I had an online journal. Years. It was an easy decision to follow a couple of friends over here to Dreamwidth, but a much more difficult decision to choose a journal style, and an even harder one to choose a journal title; eventually I decided to leave that blank for a while when I realized that I was beginning to panic because I couldn't think of a pithy title.

Interests, the profile page wanted to know. That was a challenge. I've been depressed for so long, and I've been in upheaval for even longer, and I have no idea anymore what interests me, beyond books and binging on Netflix. The truth is that very little interests me anymore. I'd like to change that but am only in the very early stages of finding out how.

I don't know what to write. All of this is filling me with uncertainty.

I'm Allie. I have cats. Two of them, one of whom is preparing to investigate my typing and looking like she's going to cause a nuisance. I live in Canada, in a small and unattractive city. I have three children, two daughters and a son, the daughters are 27 and 18, and the son is 25. No grandkids yet.

I read a lot. Books are my lifeline and always have been. I plan to post about books I've read here. And I wonder if there are communities here, like there were on LJ, where I can meet other bibliophiles. I suppose I will figure this out in time.

Right then, first entry completed, off I go to explore the world of Dreamwidth.

Hello dear! Welcome to Dreamwidth. I am still navigating the site. I'm sure you'll find plenty of bookish communities.

Hi! Saw you via the "Latest things" page and decided to subscribe. Welcome to Dreamwidth!

Have you already tried out the interests search? I saw a few communities you might like: [community profile] byob_bc and [community profile] book_love, which both are about love of books. And you might also want to check out [community profile] ladybusiness and [community profile] access_fandom.

And this is a different platform altogether, but have you checked out the Books section of FanFare on MetaFilter?

Best wishes.
