Well, technically journaling isn't a word. But we don't always care about that, so... --facetofcathy 01:53, 27 September 2011 (UTC)

Oh, dear. Maybe just Journal Communities? We should use what term people use most often to refer to LJ-esque sites collectively.--æþel 02:06, 27 September 2011 (UTC)
I use the word, of course I spell is journalling, but I use it. It's one of those grey areas where the word is used somewhat widely to mean keeping a journal rather than what most people would call a blog, which is not what everyone on LJ etc. is doing. Yet if you use it on LJ, people with infer the meaning using livejournal et al, I think. So for me, either journal communities or journaling works, but it's a point to consider.--facetofcathy 11:57, 27 September 2011 (UTC)
Avoiding the U.S./Canada/U.K. -ling spelling issue sounds like a good reason to go with Journal Communities.--æþel 01:39, 28 September 2011 (UTC)
