Testing...who is here?

Sometimes you write a post, and the words are like a huge echo. You have no idea where the words travel, who hears their tone, or in what country the human reading them is located. So, this post is just a short test to check blog traffic, and see who is still visiting LJ during the long holiday in Russia.

I can't imagine having so many days off in a row, as it is unheard of in the USA unless you are taking personal vacation. The country simply would not shut down for two weeks. I was off for too many days the past month because my office was empty, with no work to do. I almost went insane from idleness, but got to see some films in the cinema - the children's movie "Sing," "Passengers", and a very good and touching movie called "Manchester by the Sea." Plus, tons of old films on Netflix. :)

Who is here? :) Also, how many of you have heard of Dreamwidth.org? This is another blogging platform, with an interface similar to LJ. I am thinking about cross-posting there, as there is a mix of both Russian and English language blogs, in an effort to draw new readers and commentators to the blog. I want to continue to publish posts about my journey to the tiny gem called Georgia, but only if there are people to view the words and photos, to absorb the stories, and somehow find meaning, pleasure, or even aggravation in them.

Happy New Year dear readers! I hope 2017 is a good one...

Odnoklassniki stands for "classmates". It is almost 100% Russia and othe ex USSR. Tens of millions of users. Was very popular about 8-9 years ago. I was a heavy user back then, getting back in touch with people whom I have not communicated with in 20-30 years. But after all the catching up was done, it went on a backburner:)

I see, well there is no reason for me to be on this platform. :) I am on VK, I think this is enough.

Odnoklassniki is a competitor to VK. They started out on the same playing field but I think VK is ahead. I never got VK, as for Odnoklassniki - I closed my profile. This way people who still want to find me can do so, and my friends can still communicate with me. But I am off limits to spam, etc.
