Keep Voting!!

Misha is still in it, so keep voting! He's up against Blair from Gossip Girl, and you know only Misha could get me to vote against my girl Blair!!

Jensen and Jared are in it still too, and they'll both need your votes because they are up against Neil Patrick Harris and Robert Downey Jr! Of course, that means the next round will be Jared v Jensen....but we all knew it would come to that, right?

On another note, it's come to my attention that I probably post too much stuff about Misha, and I know my FL is mostly Jared and Jensen oriented and aren't interested in reading all my squee/babblings about Misha. Or that's what I hear anyway, which would explain people not commenting on stuff or only commenting if I talk about Jared, etc.

So...I'll dial it back. News type stuff I'll still post, but I'll just save general squee and that kind of stuff for either the Misha or Castiel communities, or for other places. Maybe I *will* get one of those Dreamwidth things and just turn it into my Den of Misha or whoever else happens to be my crush of the moment, and leave all my regular posting stuff here.

Kiddo, it's your journal. Squee about who you want. I don't mind your sharing the Misha love at all.

I just don't wanna become one of those journals that my friends list just scrolls past, or filter me out because I'm boring or not talking about stuff that's relevant to their interests, etc.

Especially when *so* much of my friends list is still hardcore Jared fans, and even though I do still like him, he's not doing anything that I want to talk about right now. Plus all the wank that inevitably follows when you talk about Jared or Jensen these days...it just seems like Misha is the safer place to be. And he's who is interesting to *me* right now, but I'm finding out not to everyone, I guess.

So I don't want to keep squeeing and my my flist being all, "Jesus not this again."

It's your journal, write about whatever you want. I have a feeling this has to do with our conversation last night...

Yeah, kinda but I've heard it from other people too so it's not just you. And I *like* all the people on my friends list, and like I said above--I want my journal to be something ya'll *want* to read, not something you guys scroll past or filter out because I'm babbling about stuff you don't care about and all. I mean, most of the people on my flist are there because we met due to a common interest, and I know it's probably boring to read a journal where the topic is *always* something that you aren't interested in, ya know? Like if you *always* talked about...I dunno...*math*, I would probably be all, "Oh God, more math? I don't care about math!"

And I don't want my journal to be a place where ya'll just groan and move on. The majority of people on my flist are there because I consider them actual real friends, so if I bore ya'll and you drop me, I will be sad. :(

But you know I LIKE Misha. A lot! When we were deciding between Jersey and Eyecon, remember, the top of my priorities was where Misha was going to be! :D

And sorry, but you're not getting rid of me that easily! :)

So...I'll dial it back. News type stuff I'll still post, but I'll just save general squee and that kind of stuff for either the Misha or Castiel communities, or for other places. Maybe I *will* get one of those Dreamwidth things and just turn it into my Den of Misha or whoever else happens to be my crush of the moment, and leave all my regular posting stuff here.

Pffft, you should be able to talk about whomever/whatever you want, WHEREVER you want! Don't dial it back!

I don't want to bore people though! I want to keep my journal relevant to everyone's interests. I've lost friends on here before when I started talking a lot about things they didn't have an interest in, and I hate to see it happen again. It makes me sad. :(

I definitely know how you feel (I talk about BROCK KELLY all the time, for God's sake lololol)...but I kinda figure, like. I can't FORCE my interests to fit everyone else's all the time, you know? And if I try too hard to, it just frustrates me that I CAN'T talk about whatever I want. People know (or should know by now!) that I adore Jared Padalecki...I shouldn't need to bring him up every fifteen seconds for fear of them defriending me because I lost interest! I'm pretty ambivalent re: Misha, but I enjoy your squee about him! It's adorable! I want you to keep on!

But, as said, I do know how you feel. It's hard when you feel disconnected from your friends. I'm feeling that way a lot right now, too...so maybe your idea for Dreamwidth holds merit. I'd just hate for you to wind up feeling resentful because you can't talk about what you're loving at the moment, you know? :(

*hugs*

I know--it's just part of me wants to post things that people want to read, ya know? I mean, if *all* I post about is stuff people have no interest in....well, they won't be too inclined to read it.

So I want people to read and comment, but I know the best way to do that is to post stuff that people want to read.

If you want to squee about Misha, do it! I'm not leaving ya!

I still want to squee about him, and I probably will....I just feel like I shouldn't do it as much because I know I'm probably boring the people who would rather hear about Jared! LOL!

Well I've said this before, but it still stand true : you should be able to talk/squee about whatever you want and not worry about everyone else. I do like reading your Misha posts, even if I don't always comment. That's mostly cause I'm not as into him as you are, so I don't have a lot to say, but he is very fascinating and I like to here cool little tidbits about him, so please don't feel you need to dial back. :)

I dunno--i just worry that I'll be losing people, that they won't be reading my posts (which I'm not sure if most ppl do anyway) or they'll just drop me. Or...I might get labeled as a Jared hater (like I did with Jensen) just because I'm talking more about Misha.

Plus, I don't necessarily want to post a bunch of stuff people don't want to read if there are other outlets for it, you know.

And, I do kinda feel guilty when I squee about Misha, cause I think it's like I'm being a traitor to my Jared girls! That bothers me too.

Cause I want people to read and comment, I guess. I don't want people to *regularly* scroll past me, ya know? It feels pointless if I post about stuff and get zero comments, I guess.

Misha isn't short! LOL! He's just regular sized! ;)
