The Friends-Only policy isn't principally because I'm posting lots of super-private emo stuff (although there is some of that). It's because I post lots of different kinds of things, and I like to use the Custom Groups functionality to manage who sees which posts. Right now, the categories of posts fall roughly into the following groups. Let me know which of these you'd like to see when you ask to be added, and I can put you in the right filters!
StoryGames: Gaming related posts. I principally write about weird-ass Dirty Hippie Story Games rather than "traditional" role-playing or adventure gaming.
SocialCircles: Posts about and for various social communities I belong to. This is more for "public"-level personal posts and the like. If we're LJ-friends-but-not-friend-friends this is your spot.
MippleCity: This is for stuff that's specifically relevant to Minneapolis.
OnlineFriends: We're friends. You care about my life and I trust you at least a little bit, but you're not in Minnesota.
LocalFriends: We're friends, and you're in Minnesota.
Family: You're part of my family or someone I'm very close to.
Political: Stuff specifically related to my various political or social causes. Feminism, GLBTQ issues, human rights, etc.
AdultsOnly: Stuff about sex, kink, and other "mature audiences" content.
Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you like it here!
