Okay, fine, LJ.

I wanted to stay with you for as long as I could. I've been with you since 2004. It's been a good run, but we seem to have drifted apart. A large number of my LJ friends have moved on to other platforms big and small, and it's been pretty quiet here.

And even though I'm not as annoyed about the latest ToS/server switch as some may be, I'm really not all that thrilled that you've made it 'accept the new ToS or log out, your choice'. It's felt like a slow death for a few years now, and I'm not entirely sure what your thought process was here, but it certainly wasn't about making it usable or pleasurable for a lot of longtime users.

["Now you're just some platform that I used to know..."]

ANYWAY.

I've rejoined Dreamwidth and I'm under jon_chaisson if you'd like to connect.

I'll keep my posts for a bit until I decide what to do with them. I've got most of them backed up offline anyway, though I won't be too worried if I lose some of them. I had a permanent account, so I've definitely more than gotten my money's worth over the years.

The Weekend Update posts will continue over at my Dreamwidth account. And hopefully I'll be a little more active over there.

--30--




And for what it's worth, I can't resist going against the new political ToS rule here, so I'll end my run with this little hidden track: Go fuck yourself, Donald. :D

OH HEY look at that. We're back here on Dreamwidth again!

It was bound to happen sooner or later. I'll spare you the LJ-griping, because we know we all left for the same reasons. ;)

Anyroad, I'll be making it a point to do my Weekend Updates here at DW from here on in, maybe showing up a bit more often during the week as well if time persists. (After all, I've got two other blogs I update twice a week in addition to this.) This blog will continue to be more on the personal side of things, just like before. Stuff that doesn't quite fit the writing blog or the music blog.

[On a side note, I'm also going to hold to my previous rule of hitting politics as rarely as possible here. Y'all probably remember why I've backed away from that anyway.]

So! Pull up a seat, have some coffee, and enjoy!
