Dreamwidth - I think I'm in love with you.

Do we truly notice the (subtle) effect ads have on us? On LJ, those who are annoyed by ads resort to browser add-ins like Ad-block. It's not like you are stuck looking at movie advertisements forever. That's how I got by for a couple of years. And then I found Dreamwidth.

I was a bit skeptical at first. Dreamwidth's ideas sounded nice and all, but how did the implementation hold up? I did not want to pay for an account without having a little trial run first. So, I started stalking the code sharing community until I got lucky.

Holy. Bananas.

It's like a weight has been lifted off me that I was never aware of. I am not being peddled to, interrupted, or compromised. This space truly feels like my own. Plus, reading Dreamwidth's statements on transparency, long-term sustainability, diversity, and freedom of speech just make me want to shove all my money at them in approval. Ah, but I can't do that at the moment because they terminated their partnership with Paypal. Which, of course, they only did because they stand firm on their founding principles. I swear, I'm going to get myself a credit card just so I keep supporting!

Unfortunately, a lot of the fandom/fanfic exchange activity is still concentrated on LJ. One day they will see the light. After all, DW is still growing. Until then, I am happy to make this my main journal and use the crossposting feature copiously. :)
