Harry Potter Fandom livejournal reunion
The reunion will be held November 1st to November 16th . We really want the reunion to have a feeling like it was back then on LJ, including an active flist, filled with various things we all enjoyed - fic, art, meta, and the sense of sharing our love. So there will be events both here and in various other communities around LJ.

Right now we have three communities with events happening around the reunion:

rhr_smutfest (link)
snarry_games (link)
harryronreunion (link)

And we'd LOVE more! I've sent some PMs to active communities, but if I missed yours or, even if you don't have a community, but want to start one, please consider hosting an event. It doesn't have to be a fic/art exchange. Even if it's a themed commentfest on your own LJ or a .gif party at a commuity you mod, any event is welcome and will be shared here. If you want to host an event, please send me a link to the intro post and we'll share it here.

Schedule of Events in the Main Community

*** In addition to the events below, we're aso planning on hosting book and movie discussions, but we're looking for people to help with those. If you're interested, please comment on the post. ***

- Every weekday during the reunion a post will go up in the main community encouraging people to write their own flist entry pretending that it's the day of (or after) a certain HP event - "Pretend you just got back from seeing 'Prisoner of Azkaban'" - OR go find the entry you made back then and reblog it.

- A commentfest will open on the first day of the reunion. Any pairing, any genre, any theme is allowed. It will remain open for the entire reunion for prompts/fills.

( More Events! )

And we need you to get the word out! Nudge people who you'd like to see come back. Share this post on tumblr and twitter. Try to reach as many people as you can. Let's bring them back!

Congratulations, you now have your own blog!
And here’s the small instruction that will help you to start your LJ-life.

Find new friends

The word “friends” in LiveJournal means the blogs of people you want to read. You don’t need to know someone personally to add him to your Friend list. You can read the entries from the blogs you added to the Friend list on your Friends page.
How can you find friends? To begin with check whether some of your real friends have their blogs: we’ll check your email address list and tell you if anyone is registered in LiveJournal.
After that everything depends on you: write entries to your own blog, read communities and find people who share the same interests with you!

Customize your journal

If you want to change the look of your blog you can customize it according to your taste:

  • think about the journal title and subtitle;
  • change the design theme of your journal;
  • customize it by choosing mood themes or changing texts of the links
and much more!

Upload a userpic

Userpics are icons or avatars used to represent yourself, your moods or your interests, etc. They are displayed in many locations on LiveJournal next to your username. You can upload your userpics here.
Learn more about userpics.

Add some information about you

Fill in the profile of your journal: add your interests, write a small text that describes you. And don’t forget to specify the country you live in in the field “Location” so that you can get interesting and important news about LiveJournal in your region.

What are communities?

Communities are journals where many users post entries on the similar topics. There are thousands of different communities in LiveJournal and you’ll definitely find something interesting.
Check the most popular LJ communities.
After you find communities you like just join them to post your entries there and read new entries in your Friends page.

Start writing!

It’s really easy to create a new entry: simply open the “New entry” page and write! You can find a way to this page from the menu on the homepage: the “Post an Entry” link in the “Journal” tab.
There are two different ways to create an entry: using Visual editor or HTML. We recommend you to use Visual editor that has a lot of convenient buttons.
Learn more about posting to your journal.
Here are some tips about creating an entry:

  • add pictures and photos: just use special buttons on the Post an Entry page;
  • use an "LJ-Cut" to hide everything underneath it with a link;
  • add tags – words of short phrases used to organize your entries in the journal.

Control who can read your journal entries

When you post an entry, you can choose a security setting which controls who can see your entries. There are several options:

  • Public (visible to everyone who reads your journal);
  • Friends-only (visible only to people on your Friends list);
  • Private (visible only to you).
