Three quick DW tips for LJ refugees: Things you may or may not have noticed

  1. A thing I've not seen many people mention is the "Popular in your circle" feature. Once you've added a few people, this will tell you what is popular with your friends, and then you can reinforce your bubble find things you might have missed but that you're likely to like.
    ETA: It's a paid account feature, apparently, which might explain why I've not seen many ppl mention it.

  2. I know I've mentioned this before, but this post on [community profile] 2017revival is an excellent resource. In fact, the whole comm is ace. Find your LJ friends, and add yourself so they can find you.

  3. The list of popular feeds that you may remember from LJ is here.
Hopefully some of that is helpful :)

I think No 1 is a paid account only feature.

Wow, I didn't know about the 'popular in your circle' thing, it's great. I found [community profile] crochet, it's not as big as [community profile] knitting, but it's pretty big.

Thank you!

I've been meaning to cough up for a Paid account for a bit (disorganisation, not penury stands in the way, which is a bit rubbish of me). That might remind me to do so!

Huh, I've been on DW so long that I have a seed account, and I didn't know about this!

Very helpful, thank you! I may consider getting a paid account.

Also, do you have any recommendations for good places to find icons? Thanks!

You have Holtzman licking her gun. Doesn't that cover all possible icon needs ever?

True. There are 15 spaces though and I feel like I ought to try and collect more icons. I hadn't really used my LJ properly for a long time and I'd forgotten how fun they are.

I didn't know about #1 and I've had a paid account for years. It's useful to know that it's there.
