Wow! A DW user randomly gave me six months of paid time under the sponsor-a-free user program! This is so great! I got my icons back and can post polls!

Day 6

In your own space, pimp promote three comms or challenges and explain why you love them.

[community profile] vidrecs
It's recs! For vids! I love vids.

[community profile] shutterspeed
We have restarted this comm, which involves taking photos based on prompts and posting them to the community. The goal is to take more photos and fuel your muse.

[community profile] netflix_dw
For Netflix-related discussions. I sometimes post recs there. I would like to see this community get more traffic.

[community profile] kink_finders
People post requests looking for fic (or books) that hit their specific kinks, which is broadly defined. I enjoy reading this comm and following links in comments to good fic.

I did a fairly brutal trim of my subscription list. This does not mean we are not friends, yadda etc. It's always amnesty day around here: to paraphrase someone else I read (auburn?), this is not bad magazine subscription you're stuck with.

Also, DW invite codes! I gave most of mine away at [site community profile] dw_codesharing. You can too!

[community profile] 25book_pwd for discussing books featuring characters with disabilities.

[community profile] disabledparents: If you are a parent with disabilities, a child of a disabled parent, a disabled person thinking of becoming a parent or if you just think this would be the right place to be, please do join the community.
