I can't tell who has liked a post, my journal theme doesn't show them but I get a little email about it :-S
2. It is really nice to get comments so I shall add 'comment more' to my personal LJ revival plan :-D
Given the weirdness of the liking system - if you like one of my posts but don't have anything to say, please comment with a smiley face or something small like that!
3. Have remembered I bought a small cheap laptop, specifically for the purpose of writing on t'internet from bed. So lots of you have just got comments :D Teenytinylaptop's battery doesn't last long which is actually good because it is keeping me focussed instead of browsing idly.
4. I often enjoy reading posts but feel I have nothing to say so don't comment. But when I tried, I found something to say for every post I looked at. That's useful to know.
It is also interesting because in hanging around with quiet, introverted and/or socially anxious people, I have somehow absorbed the idea that I find talking people to people. But that isn't actually true for me*. It's a skill I want to keep developing for things like Bi Coffee and post-Biphoria when I want to make people feel welcome and included in the conversation.
*I have spent my life being told/assuming that I am similar to my dad in personality and he is one of those quiet people. But my mum is really gregarious and chatty and it is interesting to start seeing what I have inherited from her as well. I can remember talking to her about people we know and she had really interesting insights into how people ticked which would never have occured to teenaged me. But mid-30s me has learned a lot about people since then. And learning how to talk and how to listen, both in the relatively shallow social lubrication sense and in the deeper sense of 'holding space'* is an ongoing goal for me.
