First of all, let me take this opportunity to thank each and every person who wished the wife and I well on our civil union. And extra special thanks to everyone who sent us something. We were both quite breathless with everyone’s generosity and kindness. The deed is now official, the papers have been filed. We are a union, even if we are not really “civil” in any sense. :-)
Now, on to news.
I know that a lot of people hang out in a lot of different online spaces. I can’t be everywhere, but I thought I’d give everyone a rundown on the various spaces and groups where you can find Yuricon (or me.)
Yuricon ML: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/Yuricon/
This is a general chat list where your comments on anything remotely to do with Yuri are always welcome! This is the best place to get Yuricon and ALC News and updates, since I post there first…and often I post there and forget to post elsewhere. Woops…
Yuricon Announcements ML: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/Yuricon_announce
This is more like a newsletter- you get the announcements. That’s it. There’s no chat and no way to reply.
Yuricon in LJland: http://community.livejournal.com/yuricon/
This is a group someone set up on LiveJournal to which I sometimes remember to post news announcements. I do occasionally check in to reply to comments. If you have a LJ and check that regularly, it’s one good way of getting Yuricon and ALC news.
This, the thing you are reading, is my “official” blog, which I am now updating on the order of 4-5 times a week. It includes reviews of yuri anime, manga, live action and related (sometimes not so much) films and books, as well as news and updates. Other than the YC mailing list, it is the best place to get updates and news – and you can get it on an XML feed to make it easier to get updates.
Mixi – http://mixi.jp/show_friend.pl?id=7455248
This is a Japanese social networking site. It is, therefore, in Japanese. I’m really bad about updating this, for fairly obvious reasons. If you have a mixi account, let me know and I’ll add you as a friend. It’ll make us both look cooler. :-) I am going to try and post there a bit more often.
Yuricon MySpace: http://www.myspace.com/yuricon
Yuricon MySpace Blog: http://blog.myspace.com/yuricon
Like the LJ Community, I’m going to post news and updates here, but not much else. But feel free to add me as a friend, or ask me to add you. Like Mixi, it’ll make us look so much cooler. ;-)
Last, but not least, you can usually find me hangin’ on IRC in the evenings at firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com, two wonderful scanlation/sub groups that you already know about (or should, if you don’t) where we talk about yuri from time to time. :-)
Hope I’ll see everyone *somewhere* online! :-)
