So the noise around LJ Land is that everyone's migrating over to Dreamwidth. Not entirely sure of the reasons why, not that I've really paid much attention to the ownership goings-on here on this platform.

As you may remember, Bob, I used to have a Dreamwidth account maybe 3-4 years ago. I even used it for a personal project of writing weekly poetry. But once I stopped that project, that journal gathered dust until a year ago when I decided to save the work I'd done in Word format and close it down.

[Edit: Looking at past posts, it's more like 6-7 years ago! I was posting the poetry around 2010-11.]

I'm undecided if I want to take the same route right now. I've been using LJ since 2004 and have a permanent account. Obviously I still use it, mainly for personal, non-music, non-writing related blog entries. I so rarely get a response, not that it bothers me. [OK, in a way it's kind of sad that I don't, considering that back in the day this platform got a lot of traffic. But that's another entry entirely.] I still read my Friends Feed, which at this point is probably the same eight or nine people I know who still post here. A. closed hers down a few weeks ago, having realized she hadn't posted anything for years. I wouldn't necessarily feel too bad about doing the same, considering I've more than gotten my money's worth for it.

At this point, I already have two WordPress blogs going, which have been getting more attention than the LJ over the last few years. If I did rejoin Dreamwidth, it would be to post the same thing -- more personal entries. I'd backup these entries and close this one down.

But at this point, like I said -- still up in the air.

We shall see.
