#KeepLitsyActive

1. The recommendations for books I would never have read before joining Litsy, the community of amazing people, and the wide variety of events.
2. There‘s nothing that comes across my feed that bothers me.
3. I like the idea of having an Owned TBR list, and a Do Not Have TBR list
4. It varies, but normally multiple times throughout the day.
5. I‘ve taken part of and enjoyed them all.

↘️Continued down below. ↙️

Clwojick 6. I feel like one of the major things that is lacking in Litsy that was a major thing a few years ago is genuine conversation. Maybe people are more shy now, I‘m not sure... but there seems to be less back and forth conversation then before. Yes a comment here and there, but not as much back and forth. Does that make sense? 2w
Clwojick 6. Continued... I am a fan of the addition to “hide” a hashtag. I‘ve never needed to do so, but I like that the option is out there for others. I realize that not everyone wants to be apart of all events, so it‘s great to have the opening to “opt out” of having to view related posts. 2w

ljuliel Thanks for responding. Yes it‘d be a great help to know which books people already own on their tbr. It‘s a bit hard to know that with the current setup. You just have one long list of books in that area. 2w
Clwojick @ljuliel 😅 Especially after forging the lists with my Goodreads list. I gave up trying to keep it up to date after that. 2w
ljuliel I agree about the conversations. A lot of that is lacking now. That‘s sort of the reason I put these questions up. To get people talking a bit amongst ourselves. Things have changed in here , but maybe we can turn it around somehow. I always think there are lots of lurkers that have yet to post. I‘d like to get them more involved too. It‘s really not scary to post. Most everyone in here is nice. I‘m probably the crabbiest one, but I can be nice🤨 2w
ljuliel Yea, I just saw that feature on the web page where you can add your Goodreads books. That‘d definitely make it more confusing ! 2w
Alora Love the idea of an owned and non owned tbr! 2w
Bookish.SAM @Clwojick whoa... I didn‘t know you could hide a hashtag ?!? On that note... I sort of wish there was a way to follow hashtags @ljuliel ... or is there and I just don‘t know about it either? 2w
ljuliel @Bookish.SAM I‘m not a very good one to ask about the hashtag follows and unfollows . I can‘t get mine to work from online, so it apparently doesn‘t work for everyone. Hopefully someone will look into this. 2w
Crazeedi I didnt know you could hide a hashtag either. So much I dont know even after 3 years. I'm going to answer this after I've considered the questions a bit. I love Litsy 2w
Clwojick @Bookish.SAM if you go onto the Litsy website, not the app, and go to your profile settings and scroll down, there‘s a “Mute Hashtags” option. There‘s no option to follow a hashtag yet though. I agree that would be nice 2w
Clwojick @Crazeedi the option to mute hashtags was just added back in May, I believe. 2w
effani I'm new here, but I've been surprised at how little conversation there is in comments. It seems like the culture is to hit the “like“ button and move on, even if the poster asked a question. It's interesting to hear that hasn't always been the case. 2w
Clwojick @effani it definitely wasn‘t! I‘m not sure what exactly has changed about it. I know we all have our antisocial days, and we don‘t want to communicate too much, but I try to make a point of going back the next day and comments or reposting etc. @MrBook made a good point about just taking 15 minutes a day to actually reach out to one another and get give our fellow Littens the love they deserve. 🥰 2w
AnneCecilie I love your answer to no. 3. That would be great 2w
Lizpixie Yes, about conversation! It‘s disheartening to write a post with a question in it, even one as simple as Should I Read Book A or B? and not get any response. We used to talk a lot more when I first joined over 3yrs ago #OGsOfLitsy 2w
Clwojick @Lizpixie exactly! There used to be more free flowing communication. We would get tabs on each other, and wish each other well on big days, check up on each other if we haven‘t posted in a few days, ask how someone‘s sick cat is doing, or ask how the first few days at their new job is. I RARELY see that anymore. And I don‘t know if it‘s cause people stapling sharing those moments in their life‘s, or if others stopped caring enough to check in. 2w
gradcat @Bookish.SAM If you know what you‘re looking for, you could always find your favorite hashtags in the search feature under tags...that way, you can get right to them. It will help even if you only remember the first word. ♥️ 2w
RainyDayReading I agree with #6. I joined Litsy in 2017 and was seeing all these conversations in the comments between people like they had been friends for years! I was really hopeful that I would be able to forge friendships like that here but it never happened. I'm not sure what changed or when it changed but it did. I thought for a while that maybe it was because I don't read the same things as everyone else but I don't know. 2w
Clwojick @RainyDayReading I don‘t think it‘s has anything to do with what you read, I think it‘s just the way that Litsy has evolved 2w

Lynnsoprano @LauraBeth She‘s doing okay, thanks. She‘s still recovering from her dental surgery, and her new job is keeping her busy, but she loves it. Still reading every spare moment she has 😄 I‘m trying to talk her into hosting another #LitsyPartyofOne. 4w
LauraBeth Oh we would all love it if she hosts another one!!!! 4w

Random winner will be drawn June 1. Winner will receive a book from their current TBR and a book I think you might like.

Megabooks Very nice of you, as always, friend! 😘😘 6mo
CoffeeAndABook That‘s a brilliant idea 🙌🏻 Love it!!! Good luck 🍀 to everyone ☀️🌸 6mo
Cinfhen Thanks so much @Megabooks I‘ve had over 1100 new followers since January and 5 have entered the giveaway 😂😂😂🙄🤷🏼‍♀️ 6mo
See All 31 Comments
Cinfhen See above comment @CoffeeAndABook 👆🏽😂😂❤️ 6mo
CoffeeAndABook Wow really!!! 😂 I‘d say those five have *great*odds of winning that giveaway 🤪 I still think it‘s a fab idea!!! 6mo
TrishB That‘s a bit sad isn‘t it- 5. I‘ve had a lot of new followers but not much interaction. It‘s hard because you want to welcome people but then they don‘t post or join in 🤷‍♀️ 6mo
Cinfhen I tried but it‘s pretty telling sign... I‘m so happy I joined early and got to really bond with my #OGsOfLitsy @TrishB @CoffeeAndABook ♥️ 6mo
TrishB Me too ❤️ it‘s so worth the effort though. 6mo
CoffeeAndABook Yes to the #OGsOfLitsy !! 💞💞💞😘 6mo
Megabooks @Cinfhen Yes, I was a suggested user up until a few months ago. (That‘s why I have 18k followers.) It‘s kind of frustrating because you get a lot of new followers, but a lot of them never post. It‘s hard to separate the posters/interested new users from the casual account makers. Glad to be an #OGofLitsy! Joined 3 years and 3 months ago! Love Litsy/Littens!!! 📚💜💙💜💙💜📚 👇🏻 6mo
Megabooks Out of Print asked me if I wanted to be a suggested user in the summer of 2016, and I thought, “Great, I‘ll get to meet a lot more people.” But after awhile, it was really wearing on me, especially when I was depressed. I wish I had grown my new followers more organically. #FoodforThought 6mo
Cinfhen 18k is ridiculous @Megabooks That‘s wayyyyy too many to weed through even if only a quarter post!!!!! 6mo
Freespirit I started following you last year (2018 when I joined) but want to thank you for your kindness and generosity. That's what makes Litsy so special @Cinfhen 😊 6mo
ShyBookOwl 5? Hmm. Well, I haven't entered giveaways because I don't read many physical books. With my chronic pain issue, I can only manage a physical book of about 250 pages. But it's nice to see them pop up 😊 6mo
BarbaraBB It is really saddening that only five people or maybe a bit more saw your post (they would have entered otherwise, obviously). I have stopped looking who my new followers are, I wait for interaction. Most of them just signed up and never post. 6mo
Cinfhen Awwwwww, thanks so much @Freespirit @ShyBookOwl I appreciate the sweet hello!!! If you want to enter feel free... I can always send books to your kindle @ShyBookOwl ( assuming you‘re in the US) for some reason my Amazon US account can‘t ship or gift books to other countries 🤷‍♀️ 6mo
Cinfhen I stopped following back new followers unless we have some interaction @BarbaraBB and part of me is VERY tempted to cull my follower list to only people that I really interact with... this way I can actually see what my friends are reading and posting. Otherwise I miss seeing posts Im interested in. 6mo
ShyBookOwl @Cinfhen that's so nice of you to offer, but I am in Canada 6mo
Cinfhen Darn. That‘s too bad @ShyBookOwl ☹️ 6mo
BarbaraBB I always do that, keeping my following list small (relatively) because I really want to read about books/genres I am interested in and posts from people I like / am interested in! (edited) 6mo
DebinHawaii Such a nice idea for a giveaway @Cinfhen 🤗I share the pain of too many followers. I was made a suggested user back in the day & felt obligated to follow everyone because the SU list had so few current people on it. When I had my health scare I got behind & then went to only following those who posted & I still have 14K+ followers although I follow about 1/2 that number due to the low posting rate. It does make it an effort to see friend's posts😟 6mo
Megabooks @Cinfhen yes, it made Litsy a little less fun. ☹️ I was ready not to be one when library thing removed me. 6mo
TrishB I only follow back now when people have posted or interacted with me. I still have too many just no time to think about culling really. I tend to look individually at friends every couple of days if I think I‘ve missed their posts. 6mo
Cinfhen Happy you found me @DebinHawaii with our time difference I often miss your posts!! And I miss seeing you and Max 💜 6mo
GypsyKat Such a sweet idea! 💖 6mo
Centique @TrishB I do the same thing Trish. And my time difference is such that I need to go look up friends each time I‘m on here and see what I‘ve missed - which is why I all of a sudden turn up and like eight posts at once! 😂 6mo
Centique Just out of interest - even before Library Thing - when I first started on here I went searching for people to follow, looking up different names and consistently found about two thirds of each search return were blank accounts. It seemed bizarre that it was such a massive percentage - they should clean some out I reckon. 6mo
TrishB @Centique agreed! I know I end up liking things 2 days after they‘re posted! But that‘s fine too 😁 6mo
Cinfhen Thanks @GypsyKat 💋💋 6mo
Cinfhen It is odd @Centique !!!!!! 👇🏼 (edited) 6mo
Cinfhen Not that u comment 3 days later but that new followers don‘t seem to be active at all 6mo
