my favorite livejournal communities

question of the day from aerrin: What are your favorite communities on LJ these days and why?

Well I think we/I'm done with friendquest2015, because I found all these other good friending & promo communities!

add_me
thefridayfive
community_promo

I also really like communities about parenting and family things:
meet_other_moms
parenting101
booju_newju
_marriedlife_

these are the remaining cool "creative stuff" places:
craftgrrl
sew_hip
gimp_users

thequestionclub - truly its own bubble. not a ton of friending going on, everyone just wants to be their crazy self. that's okay!

iud_divas - to talk about birth control and IUDs, still reasonably active, go figure.

feminist is the one I'm trying to bring back with the Friday questions. Please join, but please note the application questions and email requirements in the community bio :)

and I am a maintainer of tall and engineers which are not active, but hey you never know.

I didn't know there was a gimp community! Maybe someone there can help me with my issue...

I'm a member of some of those communities. For a while my journal was made up of mostly communities. Now it's fairly even thanks to your friend quest community. :)

I'm in parenting 101, married life, craft grrl, and sew hip.

I'm not sure if it's an issue with Gimp or with Windows. I got a new laptop and can't get Gimp to install on it. :/

Just applied to feminism :)

You posted this twice, was that intentional?

oh hm i missed that there was an application for feminism. i guess i don't really do communities so don't know how they work...

to be honest I wish they'd get rid of the application, they said that the purpose was to avoid giant debate threads where people who won't admit that privilege is a "thing" want to fight it out. and that's a valid request... let's all start at the same place.

BUT when a community is mostly dead and there are clearly no huge debates going on, maybe we should take anybody we can get!

In general I'd say it's good to carefully read the community bio before joining any community, understand the rules, see if there's anything you don't like.
