Folks, as per my announcement earlier this week, I will be shutting down my LJ as soon as I am done with a thorough review of a content export from there to Dreamwidth. This is likely to happen some time this weekend.

Until that time, since my posts originate on my WordPress site and are crossposted to Dreamwidth, and DW crossposts in turn to LJ, I have set my Dreamwidth settings to disable comments on crossposted content. Moving forward, over the next few days, I encourage you to leave any comments either on the DW version of a post, or come straight over to to leave comments there.

Likewise, Dara is also taking steps to deprecate her journal. She has posts up about this here (on and here (on Dreamwidth).

I’m sad about having to do this, but less sad than I would have been if LJ were still my only blogging platform. But I’ve had a foot out the door on LJ for years, and the new problematic TOS is pretty much the last straw. If you’re an LJ friend, I encourage you to come on over to Dreamwidth. If you’re not sure if you want to commit to an account there, you can still use your LJ ID to leave comments on posts there!

If you do want to commit to an account there, note also that you can claim any previous OpenIDs as you, as per Dreamwidth’s Help post here. The reason this is useful is because if your LJ username shows up as an OpenID commenter on someone else’s imported posts, you can claim that ID as you, and that comment will then show as your Dreamwidth account instead. This is useful!

And again, if you’re already on Dreamwidth and I don’t have you in my circles there yet, let me know who you are!

Editing to add: Also changing my DW settings so that the footer for the DW version of a post should show up on LJ now.

I find myself not even all that sad, but I'd largely abandoned Livejournal. I'm tempted to try and get myself into DW more, but I've declared that kind of thing before to no avail so I think I'll just see what plays out. I have put a little effort into sprucing it up, although my circle is very, very small.

I need to backup/export before I do a nuke & pave over there. But as a non-techie kind of geek, I don't even know where to start. Any pointers?

I found it, and it's now underway. Next problem is, what do I use for an RSS reader for SBTB, Cheezeburger, HazAHotDog, etc? When I had a paid LJ account, I added all that stuff, and as of today it's still working. But now what?
