OTT questions but...any other black female communities on LJ?

I know this question is random as hail, but I'm always annoyed at the lack of popular black communities on lj. I know they're a few key ones, but most of the other ones haven't been updated in years. I was wondering outside of this comm. is there any other specific black female communities that involve black female icons/gifs, black female topics, etc? I was having a hard time tryna find black female stock icons/gifs that aren't of a popular black celebs like Beyonce, lol.

This community is a good place to socialize and talk about natural hair and transitioning, but I wish they're was more out there for us. I know online they're black female forums like "Lipstick Alley" and gossip blogs, but LJ seems to be lacking in that department. It's a shame because I would love more of a commentary of black women and different issues and topics regarding our lives.

There probably are some, but they are probably dead since people have left LJ in droves .

I noticed people leaving lj. It's kinda a shame since I prefer LJ to basically any other form of blogging. One of the best things about LJ is that it never really made "mainstream" level in terms of blogging so it always kinda remained more intimate and secluded as compared to Blogger or Wordpress. ONTD is probably the biggest thing on here.

I know it is late and it not a community but I have started blogging on varied black history. It's not much but I will try to post everyday about people NOT widely talked about. I know that people have left lj in droves and I may not reach anyone but I did try...
