Looking back...

One year ago in April I posted my first shared LJ layouts.

Two years ago in Feb 2006 I started the H/D Directory - which I finally updated this month.

Since then for layouts there's been several redesigns, both for myself and others: ackonrad, dacro and maderr and four for comms: hd_inspired, takenote_icons, hd_worldcup and ah_gayfiction.

On the recs front, there were two compilation rec lists made - one for H/D fandom Classics and another for hd_holiday's 2007 summer round. Did harry/draco recs for crack_broom in September 2007. I haven't done an actual full sized H/D rec list since the one in Sepember 2006. Don't think I'll ever catch up.

Also did the Supernatural Rec List Directory in June but haven't updated it since >__> Damn.

In some ways it feels like forever and on the other hand there's still so much to do and it feels like I just started. I want to be innovative with designs and try things out of my comfort zone. Also need to make the time for proper recs more often. Probably won't happen but one can always hope.

Lol, that started as a favor for a friend of a friend who was new to the fandom - though it's definitely been a year or more since I read SPN fic >__> Glad it's been useful though!

I feel the same way. I've been knocking around fandom (mostly on a lurker basis) for right at two years now, and I still feel like I've barely scratched the surface of all the fantastic fic and art out there. There's so much I want to read and write and do, and so little time to do it in. Oh, life, *lol*.
In some ways it feels like forever and on the other hand there's still so much to do and it feels like I just started. It reminds of that Honey & Clover line, where there are so many boxes to be opened and to explore but there is a limit to how much we can do.

I am forever grateful to your fic recs and the HD Directory you put up.
Also need to make the time for proper recs more often.
Your coverage of the fics at the hd_worldcup is quite helpful :)

The H/D directory was starting point for me becoming an H/D shipper, so you'll always have my gratitude for compiling that. (And if you need any kind of help with updating it, let me know :))

Give me a little while to think about it. My plans depend on the outcome of a request to another friend.
