Well

Even if I were moving away from LJ (not saying I am) I still don't think I'd be moving to dreamwidth.

Likely I'd move someplace I already am... Blogger Sound Off by TexasT's(nothing posted there since 2007) or Wordpress TexasT's Takes Pictures (nothing since 2009) - Already have established blogs in those places. A mite dusty and I'd need to (re)learn some coding, but that ain't necessarily a bad thing either.

But I've picked up some new and active friends (and interesting and talented) since this surge and I'm not willing to give y'all up either.

So here we are. What do Y'all think?

Oh, I think you've heard my DW rant often enough.

I'm staying with LJ until they close the door and turn off the lights.

DW has my back ups, I'll stay at LJ until they disappear or kick me out though. 😊 I have a self hosted WP too, just in case. I don't post things on Wordpress that I would put as 'friends only' on lj, but all my public posts are pretty much the same on my WP and LJ.

As I understand it it is basically a clone of some earlier or latter version of LJ. Started by some Ex-LJ employees likely that felt they had an ax to grind.

According to kishenehn, they have one (1) full-time employee, who is also the owner, who is that disaffected employee. Seems to me that this leaves them mighty susceptible to just disappearing from one day to the next, but hey, not my business.

That seems a fair assessment.

it seems like it's a husband and wife running it?

I don't even know anymore. I made a dreamwidth thing and got BlogBooker so I could at least back up and delete my old old high school/college LJ, but I don't know about this one. I don't like the UI at dreamwidth, although I have some friends who made the jump and I'd like to follow them too... I have a foot in each pond I guess for the moment.

I have found lj a little quiet of late. I think that might have something to do with the new terms and conditions. But I don't see myself going over to Dreamwidth any time soon.

Good to see you on here and I just wish others would use it more often!

I've never had an active blog anywhere else. Certainly not anything that's lasted as long as here (over 10 years of my life)
Hopefully it proves to be just another panic over nothing. I remember at least 2 other "OMG LJ is going to die" moments in those last 10 years....and it's still standing

I just got back to journaling, so I don't know what to do. If there was a way to get all my stuff over to Wordpress, I probably would do that.

Right?

I have started to make copies though.

Wish I was better at coding, I'd totally make some sort of web tool to do it.

yeah, i am just not sure what i'm going to do at this point. i'd like to exist at both places but i could get purged here. i don't know if that's a reasonable worry or not, but russian law really is anti-lgbt so it wouldn't surprise me totally.

i want to download my lj just to have the 15 years of entries though.

You know that's the thing innit? Don't know if it is a real threat.

I have started archiving my entries locally at this point.
