Year in minimal fannishness

Hello, LJ and Dreamwidth! This is me trying to get over not posting inertia by making a short post (using my phone, even!). After all I Tweet just about every day, so why go for almost a year without posting here?

Also I can go ahead and take care of something else that usually takes me a lot of words around this time of year: I have no year-in-fic or year-in-podfic meme to share because I didn't write any fic or make any podfic this year. I also barely read any fic or listened to any podfic this year.

The one big fannish thing I did do this year was to go to Minneapolis for [community profile] podfication in October. This was a late decision on my part but a super great one. The organizers did a fabulous job balancing programming with free conversation and opportunities for making things. I loved getting to see folks I'd met at previous Minnesota gatherings and meet some dear online friends like [personal profile] yue_ix and [personal profile] cantarina in person for the first time, and in general getting to hang out with so many kind, creative queer women and others. Even though I'm not a person who makes podfic these days I sure love the podfic community.

This year has had a lot of good stuff for me personally even though it's been mostly horrible for my country and planet. Maybe I will make some other posts about that soon.

It was absolutely lovely to body-meet you and so many others as well! I hope it happens again next year. :)

Glad that 2016 was kind to you! Podficathon sounds like it was a lot of fun. I almost attended a Star Trek con this year but it didn't work out, but next year I might try again.
