I'm a stay-at-home mom, married to a Brit, returned to the US after living for the 5 years in the UK. I discovered LJ because I wrote Spuffy, though I'd become too busy in the past few years to continue. I have, however, recently discovered Merlin, and started dipping my toe back into the well of fanfic. There aren't enough hours in my day, so I've had to be strict about my friending policy or otherwise I'd be reading my friends' list more hours out of the day than I spend with my 2 kids. :) I do occasionally friends-lock a post, but those are usually private and not fan-related.
