Friending frenzy: find active LJers who write the way you wanna read!

Looking for more active LJ friends? Post about yourself and find new people!

also please spread the word!

I've been doing this with individual recommendations and since I have an active friends list now I thought I'd share the wealth ;-)

1) My age and location: I'm 35, and I live in Philadelphia

2) My self-labels: Reader and writer. Tea-drinker. Art-lover. Cook, baker, gardener, amateur photographer. Hiker and bird-watcher. Introvert. Feminist. Queer. Literature snob. Daughter, big sister, aunt, long-time partner.

3) My posts usually fall into the following categories: Lots of talk about books, sometimes in the form of formal reviews but more often informal personal impressions of whatever I happen to be reading. Some posts about writing and things I am working on, as well as thoughts about the teaching of writing. Posts about food and cooking. I often post photos, and like to use my journal to record small pleasures, everyday beauty, things I notice, the thoughts that float through....

4) My favorite things to read on my friends list are: Basically the same as the kind of things I post--I love to read about what you're reading, what you're cooking, what you're thinking, what has held your attention lately.

5) My friendship dealbreakers are: Posting lots and lots of times per day (once or twice is fine, but I can't keep up with more than that!), lots of ranting and/or complaining, never ever interacting.

6) I post entries on average once every: Two or three days, maybe? It varies.

7) If someone made a deluxe action figure based on me, it would have these 3 props and 3 outfits: A notebook, a novel, and a cat. As for outfits, jeans and a sweater (I prefer sweater-weather), something grungy for working on my house/working in the garden/hiking/other messy things, and...maybe a swimsuit? Because I do like swimming....

8) Also,
This is me on goodreads.
These are my cats:

Would you like to be friends? I'm also a reader (though I've slowed way down this summer) and love hearing from other cooks (Your username seemed familiar and I searched my inbox and a mutual friend had recommended a recipe you recommended last summer).
I would love to be friends! I looked at your thread down below, and you hit so many of key words for me: theatre, books, travel, CSA! And upstate New York, too! I grew up in Albany and feel strongly attached to many parts of New York State, despite the fact that I've been living in Philadelphia for something like fifteen years now....

Anyhow, I have added you. And if you'd like to check out my intro post, you can find it here.
ooooh, decemberthirty is a lovely human being and you two will totally get along.
We seem to have quite a bit in common. Friends?
Sure, let's give it a try!

And I like your icon--my eyesight is TERRIBLE, so I do everything wearing glasses! :)
Want to try being friends? My entry is below.
Sure, let's try it! I've added you. And I have an intro post here, if you're interested.
I like birds and tea and stuff. We could be friends if you'd like.
Can't go wrong with birds and tea. Let's give this lj-friends thing a shot. And I've got an intro post here, if you're interested.
Friends? Also I have the same name on goodreads.
Sure! Let's give it a try. I've added you, and you are welcome to have a look at my intro post if you'd like.

Hi! Thanks for the comment on my post-- I had a read over yours and you sound lovely. Let's be pals! :)
Hooray! I'll head over and add you now. And you're welcome to take a look at my intro post if you're interested.
I love that you write so much about books. I'm a massive reader as well. My thread is here. Friends?
Of course! I'm always looking for people with whom to chat about books! And anyone who chooses a pen, a notebook, and a cup of tea for their props will probably fit right in with me. :)

I've added you, and you're welcome to check out my intro post if you'd like to learn more.
Friends? I'm all about the books and birds and cooking and photography and gardening/hiking/other messy things. :)
Sure, let's give it a try! Sounds like we've got plenty in common. :)

Still interested in adding new friends? :)
Sure! I'll go add you now. :)
Sure! I've added you!
on communication, social justice, intimacy, consent, friendship & other relationships, spirituality, gender, queerness, & dreams. Expect to find curse words, nudity, (occasionally explicit) talk of sex, and angry ranting, but NEVER slurs or sexually violent language. I use TW when I am aware of the need and on request.
