The Return  
I'm moving back here after too much time spent washing around the murky waters of tumblr. It's taken me a long time to realise that Livejournal was always a safer, more welcoming place for its users. I'm not sure if that's because most of us grew up in the infancy of the internet or that we've all been here for far too long. Whatever the reason, I'm leaving tumblr alone for a few months. It was a shallow medium anyway and I'm sure I've wasted too much of my life there already. Livejournal facilitated creativity. For some reason Tumblr sucked it away. That's not why I left but it's a point worth taking away.

Anyway, I know there's not very many people here at the moment but it feels like home.

Also, I forgot how much I love icons. And mood themes. And journal layouts.
Feeling...: blankblank

It really stinks that no one is making new layouts, no one really has been making layouts since I rejoined in '14 I don't think. The layout I have right now isn't really a layout LOL

That is awesome that you are thinking about starting a comm for Top Gear, I don't think there are many out there, at least not that I have seen! I haven't watch Top Gear lately but my Dad loves the show and watches it as much as possible. But now that we have Netflix I think I can watch all of TG on there? Maybe?

That is so awesome that you are going to be making layouts again. I would be making them if I knew how LOL I do remember them running vertical...I don't know why they changed that.

HAHA it is a great place for moaning :D

I used to post my layouts here: http://ellys-showcase.livejournal.com/4389.html

I'm using http://factoryfiction.livejournal.com/ as a test journal for the layout but the new journal is http://topgearmemories.livejournal.com/

It's a left-side load journal - a new version of one I did ages ago only way more stable. I shake my head sadly at the coding I used to do lol!!! A lot changes in 10 years.

I run topgearmemories over at Tumblr so I thought I'd do something similar over here. Maybe eventually we can drag a few people over :D *PLOT PLOT PLOT*
