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 and tzotze. *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.

Yeah, LJ is really amazing for that kind of thing.

I really like your icon, by the way; where is it from?

I got my pretty dragon from the icon journal of _palimpsest_ who is making A LOT of these kind of icons. They are all beautiful. I'm hoping she will make some icons from Celtic manuscripts, that would be extremely cool :)

*waves back madly*

It's so interesting that everyone seems to have a blog now! And that people that I haven't managed to stay in touch with are popping up all over the cyber-place. Of course they've all been here much longer than I have and I've only just discovered them. Wheeeee! Very cool!

Blogs are great. I am so not going to manage to keep up an email correspondence with everyone I have ever met in my life, but this way people who remember me enough to wonder what I'm up to can find out easily.

Are any of the other bloggers you've found people I'm likely to know? Other than blue_mai and hmw26.

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.

Ooops! I didn't mean to be anonymous in the last post, I meant to be me!

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!

Oh I meant that I had discovered all these people I knew from school afterwards (Singapore etc) that were all writing blogs too! So I guess they aren't mutual acquaintances. But if you want to read Singaporean blogs (and they are mostly writing about food!) I'll pass you contacts (:
