so LiveJournal shot itself in the foot for its US users. it’s been on the decline for a while now, I’ve noticed. but I think this may be the torpedo that finally sinks it.
I won’t go into all the details about why, because not everyone really cares about LiveJournal. however, many of my blogging friends still use LiveJournal. and many of them are finally switching to DreamWidth.
what does this mean to me?
well, it makes me want to clean up my DW and LJ accounts. they still have the old “jtggodqos” username. they still have that freedom/flight/road theme I ran with for a while. but it’s $25 to switch a username on each, and it takes me a while to redo a theme because I’m very particular. moreover, they have different theme platforms, so I’d be doing the coding and revamping twice.
at the same time, I’m really trying to create a unity in my social presence, a branding of sorts. and I have long left “jtggodqos” in Louisiana where it belongs.
so I’m torn as to what to do….
honestly, I may force myself to work more overtime than usual to pull together $50. because if I’m gonna do it, I’m gonna do it all the way. that’s just how I roll.
