This is the eleventh layout and fourth location of my personal blog, which focuses on Catholicism, books, reading, writing, and the rest of my life. I started blogging way back in 2002, when I discovered the phenomenon of blogging itself. I’ve been keeping a journal since the sixth grade, so it seemed only natural to start blogging as I started spending more time online. I started at Blogger (with Musings and then Calliope Calls, which remains as a placeholder for any ancient links still floating around), because LiveJournal still required invite codes and I needed a free host. I made the switch to WordPress and changed my blog’s name to Contrariwise in July 2006, and I have been hosted by Anna of Fuchsia-Revolver.org and Burned-Bridges.net since then. I purchased the domain LindsayLoves.com in July 2011 and renamed my blog to match.

The third and fourth ones are only thumbnails. I tried to make them myself before I actually knew what thumbnails were. All other thumbnails link to the full-size version.

When innocent habits go bad. I forget when I first discovered fanlistings, or which one was the first one I joined. All I know is that I got hooked. When I found the fanlisting for joining fanlistings, it was like I was finally among my people. It’s like an alternative profile. By seeing 50×50 representations of things I liked enough to seek out the FLs, you get an idea of who I am.
I started my LiveJournal in August 2003, with an account creation code provided by my then-boyfriend, which he got from a friend of his. I intended it to be comments-only, and it largely remains so. I kept a uJournal for private entries, since Blogger doesn’t have that kind of security functionality, but when uJ folded, I migrated everything to LJ (ah, the beauty of open-source&8320;and the frustration of free hosts). Currently, I use my LJ to store private entries and participate in occasional memes. I also used it for daily posts of the meditation from The Word Among Us so I’d have them for reference, but then I subscribed to the print version, and now I don’t read WAU at all. My LJ is friends-locked, but if you comment on the public entry, I’ll friend you. It helps if your profile or comment tells me who you are; I take the concept of “friends” relatively seriously.
I am on Facebook. I will not friend you unless I can figure out who you are, and you may or may not wind up on a filtered list. (Like I said, I’m not even fake friends with strangers.) I also have a policy against friending anyone’s significant others unless I actually know them outside of the dating relationship. (Spouses are usually an exception.) Please note that you can only find me in a search if we have at least one mutual friend.
