So I guess what I'm doing is not leaving LJ.

I have made a concerted effort to post more there this year, and this whole TOS-change has a lot of people running scared/angry. I don't really count myself among them. I don't really like the TOS of any site I use, and I tend to take them with a grain of salt. I'm sure that the the folks who run the site are just trying to keep it alive. But because so many are probably going to make the jump, and this is probably the death rattle of my little group of people still posting, I've decided to at least make DW my "main home."

As in... I'm in the queue to transfer over all of my most recent entries to DW and what I plan to do is just use DW but I'll still continue to cross-post to LJ. I'll still check my flist at LJ as long as people are still posting. (I only do this like once every two weeks though, so that's not saying much, haha.)

If you're leaving LJ and you're moving to DW please let me know in the comments here or there. I'll still be around at both places, I'm krickets at DW and crickets at LJ.

I've already had a DW account for a while, but declared that I was going over to DW full-time. I don't know if that's the right decision or not. At any rate, I'm hepburnesque at both places. And, hi. :D Oh, and I don't like there not being an app for DW. LJ has one and I mostly check my friends list when I'm on my phone.

How do you transfer entries from LJ to DW? I copied and pasted mine, but there's probably an easier way to do it.

Hi hello, I haven't been on LJ in AGES and had no idea you were still posting there! It is good to see you. :)

I'm leaving, but am on DW :D

I'm already following you on there, yay. I need to change my layout over there because I can't seem to tell who is posting when looking at my friends/reading list.

LJ is familiar and comfortable. I did notice that one of my icons is missing. I'm wondering what's up with that.

Agreed on that first statement.

Not sure what happened to your icon! :( I haven't had anything weird like that happen.

It's back again. I guess it was just a glitch. Those happen from time to time.

Ah well that's good to know!

Indeed, it is. I was a little concerned.

I added you on DW. My name is the same there.

Okay cool I subscribed and granted you access.

They'll pry LJ out of my cold, dead fingers.

Or maybe just delete the site altogether one day. That's more likely and far less dramatic. But I ain't goin' nowhere!

Keep on posting!

Much less dramatic, lol! (but sad to think about too!)

I thought you might be staying. :)

I wouldn't migrate but after a while I might just stop posting. Not many reply so posting seems of little use. But I'll keep stuff here as long as they let me.

Added you. Same name as here. :)

I backed up my journal to Dreamwidth at well but I never liked it very much. I'm sticking with LJ I guess until it gets eventually deleted.

I'm glad to see you here. It's a real shame what lj has done. I don't believe that the current owners have any meaningful intention on allowing the site to keep going as it was. They have the legal tools to pretty much do what they want and I don't feel safe not to see the site disappear under my feet any random day,

I haven't gone through all of these links, but this post seems to be very informative.

I don't think I'll be using LJ much more, so... hey here we are on DW! XD

I'm here. *hugs* I imported my LJ several years ago and then did it again last week to catch more recent entries. I'd like to get back into the habit of posting more, and I'd like to do it here. I'm keeping my LJ because it's a permanent account (and I love all my icons and such), but I'm going to make DW my primary site.
