Getting a journal to look just so is surprisingly difficult. I've literally spent the afternoon doing just that. I've been through all the journal backgrounds several times. I've had three different ones, before I settled on this one. I've spent several hours finding just the right icons for my various themes. I feel sometimes my perfectionism really can go a bit too far. I am still waiting for lilsongbird over on LJ to finish my commission and then my final icons should be set.

...and then I went to have a look for communities. Originally I did not want to do that at all, but now that I am here I thought I'd have a look what all the fuss is about. After a lot of my LJ communities complaint that most of their members/friends of their members have gone off to join the "dark side" that is Dreamwidth, I somewhat expected this place to be teaming with people and the communities to be buzzing. Doesn't really look like they are at all to be honest. I couldn't find a single active World of Warcraft community, question community (I am already missing my question of the day) or community on Japan. Having said that, there are a LOT of fan fic communities. I am not big on fan fic, so sadly that isn't for me, but I can see how it would appeal to someone who enjoys fan fic. In turn I have joined quite a few prompt communities. Let's see if I can polish my writing a bit. I must say, there is a definitive freedom in writing for no one but oneself. I am not too sure what to put my writing under though. I only have two icon spaces left, which is only enough for my WoW icons. I don't really want to start buying icon spaces already, although I would not be surprised if it was needed at some point considering over on LJ I have over 100 icons and keep finding more.

Your journal looks nice. I too am disappointed at the overall lack of activity in comms on DW. It seems most fled here to backup their LJs and now that LJ is working again, people left.
