Where to post what
I'm wondering whether I ought to post on Facebook a bit more. I'm commenting over there, but haven't quite worked out what sort of thing would make a good post. I have LJ for my vague wibblings, and for my photo for the week, for writing about walking to Mordor and the occasional more in-depth post. I have my Blogger blog for crochet and knitting (which I link to G+), I have Flickr for photo discussion. So what I would actually want to say on Facebook?

Meanwhile, I continue to be mystified by Tumblr. I have set up an account to follow a couple of Tumblr accounts, but I have not used it much yet. If any of you have Tumblr blogs, please do add me over there and let me know your Tumblr name. I'm heleninwales over there too and using the crochet motif icon, as per this post.

In other news...

I have booked accommodation for the Easter weekend and bought a membership to Eastercon. I won't be staying in the convention hotel or even one of the overflows. I can't justify spending that much, even if there were any single rooms left, which I doubt. Instead I'll be staying some distance away and commuting, as I did back in 2012. It worked fine then so it should work this year too. I've decided to look on it more as a weekend in London with the chance to hang out with my friends at Eastercon. I do get peopled out more quickly these days, so I won't miss late night sessions in the bar. I hope to see at least some of you there.

There are some interesting Tumblrs out there. There's a lot of junk, too. It takes a while to get together a good list.

FB vs LJ

I use FB for the more actual things and most of the contacts there are people I have met and most known since childhood/ Univercity.

In January I used an FB eraser and cleard my FB Account. I have a resolution to FBing less. I still comment and post but less than before.
I have several groups where I post sometimes.

Every weekend I clear my account. As I am on FB with my real name I am more sensitive, I try to keep my nick Feodora as unconnected as possible with my real name.

Other than here I post about 30-40% german, but than I limit the audience to those I know understands german.

The last month I started to "be" more on LJ again, but I must say as I get more direct response on FB it is rather different.

I'm Lil Shepherd on Tumblr too, but I only reblog art and stuff I like so I can find it again. It's the way old fogeys like me have to watch every step over there. (Though there are some wonderful posts: someone just posted one on Japanese racial attitudes and history that was superb. Then there was the one on snipers and sniper rifles... "This rifle is not a super-sniper rifle for shooting people - it is designed to shoot trucks.")

Facebook is tricky for me. I stay in contact with certain friends there and a few relatives. But it is dicey as there are so many political divides there for me. I just usually post funny cute stuff or about Afghan Hounds needed to be adopted.

It is the only place I can see how my niece is doing, the one who lived with us. And my brother.

I am trying to figure out what to post on twitter, I just do re-tweets right now.

Good luck!
