 Hope those that celebrated had a fun 4th of July!

Fretting that I'm being lax about updating on here. The lack of writing to publish is a big part of that, which I hope with my recent purchase of an iPad(!!!!) giving me back computing portability in a size bigger than a phone I'll be more able to find time to write away from my desk.

I'm also hoping this ipad is going to give me opportunity to draw a bit too. There's some transformation i'm going through at the moment where digital technology just seems so much more convenient. Like I'll look at my bookshelf and see a few unread books (ASoIaF) and just think, man I wish I had the digital versions so I'd read them on my iPad/phone instead of having to lug that heavy hardcover around and need the light still on. LOL.

I mentioned this on twitter/tumblr and got a few suggestions but just in case there's anyone here that doesn't follow me there, I'm new to the iOS world so if you have favorite apps that you can't live without and would like to recommend I'm always looking for new apps and I'd rather not waste money on bad ones you know? :)

I'll try to do better to at least forward any original posts that i put on my tumblrs over here like I promised I would. Most of my fanfic tumblr lately has been posts on shipping after having seen Man of Steel and OZ. I'm behind on my reading but I'd like to rec more than I do, but lately all I've been reading is either Glee/Mass Effect fic with a dash of Star Trek. And my main tumblr is full of reblogs with a dash of instagrams and an occasional life blog post so I definitely can do a better job of that. I think a lot has to do with my dissatisfaction with the mobile interfaces of dreamwidth/livejournal, now with a bigger ipad screen I'll feel more comfortable.

 I never know what to post here when I'm too busy to write for fun. I hate just reposting the few blog posts I do on tumblr nowadays but even though I lurk here daily, it's mostly comms these days. I think maybe 5% of my friends are still regularly active on here. It takes me forever to write even the littlest of messages but I will try harder.

That said I noticed I didn't copy over my November fitness update, but it's December, now over 5 months into my being fit goal, lost 7 lbs in the last 5 weeks and am in my best shape in 10 years. And I'm not done and really excited but it does wear on one's patience having such a long term vision.

In more interesting news.. I'm thinking about redoing my 12 Days of ficmas idea that I had thought about last year or the year before but came to my mind too late to start. To those still around, what would be a decent word count for something daily like this? I'm thinking at least 300, I'd love to do more maybe it won't be a fixed number but I want to have a realistic goal that is reachable. Basically a Christmas themed prompt for every story, and i don't know how multi fandom I can be but it would be nice to touch on all the ones I love.  If my counting is right, the first day would be Friday.. I might try to get ahead and set up, but here's hoping for a more active journal!

So this is just a silly question to help me decide my obsession with digital organization.  When tagging on here or other blogs or tumblr or bookmarking, when the title starts with a 'the' like 'The legend of Korra' or 'The Amazing Spider-Man' do you leave off the 'the'?  I've seen both ways and i tend to use 'the' but I can see the convenience of not. Just want someone to nudge me in one way or the other.

Also, for those of you that use dreamwidth? Can you only crosspost to one site? It's been ages since I set it up to post to livejournal and now when I was reminded of another blog I'd left in the wind that I'd like to keep I can't seem to find a way to add a site.
