Not new to LJ, and not really new to me either, but I've only just connected up the real people with their LJs: lavendersparkle
. *waves madly*lavendersparkle
is someone I met through the Cambridge Jewish community last year and know just about well enough to want to get to know her better. And I was introducing hatam_soferet
to her when I was visiting Cambridge a couple of weeks ago and it turned out that Lavendersparkle had heard of Hatam_Soferet via LJ and neonchameleon
. (I mentioned this as an edit to my post about that trip, but then I realized that's a silly way to make an announcement as not many people will see it.)tzotze
, on the other hand, I was friends with years ago and had lost touch with her. So I'm very excited that she's now here on LJ. Since her journal is friends only and partly anonymized I won't explain how I know her, but she is using her real (and rather unusual) name as her LJ handle so if you know her you'll be able to work out that you know her, IYSWIM. Which of course is how I worked out who she was when I was browsing friends of friends.

Yup, that's why I have a blog too. I'm terrible at doing the regular email thing. (Although I did a bit of a cut-and-paste of my blog into an email to my mother-in-law and sister-in-law and my dearest hubby thought that was cheating! Surely it isn't cheating - I still wrote it! They don't read my blog anyway and the content of a purposefully written email would be much the same....hmmmmm).
I haven't found any other bloggers yet, but that's probably because I haven't been on here very long.

OK, replying here so you get the email alert. I don't think it's cheating to copy blog posts into emails at all. I sometimes include a link, if the email is to someone who is basically computer-literate and I would like to convince to read my blog if not actually join LJ.
When you said that people were popping up all over the place, I thought maybe you'd be able to point me to a few more who might happen to be mutual acquaintances. But I guess you were really referring to people like me suddenly commenting in your journal!
