looking for lj friends

I got on ello this year. There are things I like about it and things I don't. I don't like that it's main fanbase seems to be REALLY concerned with whether it's the next big thing, like they're on it to ride the wave, not to actually use the application.

It's a new site so it's trendy and everyone is friending everyone and meeting new folks, and that's what I liked about it. When it suddenly hit me that I could probably get over this whole "lj is dying" phenomenon by just treating livejournal AS IF it's a new trendy social network and go seek out some new friends here.

Because I like this platform, I like all of you, I know what I'm getting into (because I'm in it), I like exporting my posts to pdfs that I get printed every year, and I really like that this "network" is a place where people actually type out paragraphs.

so I'll be hunting around here trying to find out who's cool, and am welcoming recommendations as well.
