Okey dokey, everyone. I have some questions about how this whole LJ community thing works. I'm well versed in Tumblr, things like "liking" a post, sharing by reblogging, etc. Are there equivalent things here? How do I let people know how much I like people's stories, posts, etc. How do I share them with others?

You make a post about it and put a link in it. :)

There is a new "share" button that I think re-posts other people's posts like they're your own (with attribution to the original poster, maybe), but I've never seen it used. LJ added it to try to be a little more like tumblr, I guess, but at its core LJ is a blog site, where we each create our own content and link to other people's content. :)

And if you like someone's post, you comment on it, but I know you already do that. :)

I tried out that share button. It worked slick (or should that be slickly? Damn adverbs). When you click on the "read more" option, it takes you to the original post, not to my blog, similar to the way Tumblr works. It also offers sharing on Facebook, Tumblr and several other places. It apparently sends a message to the author as well, as moveigeek03 already replied to my share!
