So, I don't think I'm going to stop blogging (facebook just isn't the same), and my current plan is to cross post to both Dreamwidth and LJ. This isn't a very well thought through position, I definitely don't approve of LJ's T&Cs - 'no breaking Russian law or talking about politics' isn't my style, and I was even more disturbed by the 'we are bringing this in without any discussion with the user base, and suddenly cutting you off from your journal unless you accept it'. So I _think_ I'm on a trajectory of Dreamwidth as primary blog, but this is a) a bit sad, and b) requires a bit of admin to sort out friends groups and make sure I've friended people on dreamwidth etc. So cross posting should keep happening for at least a bit, and I'll put up a note if that changes.

If you felt like leaving a comment to say 'I still read this, and I'm so-and-so on Dreamwidth' or 'I still read this and I don't have a dreamwidth account' that would help me a bit with my admin :-)

I still read this and I'm ghoti_mhic_uait on Dreamwidth, which is probably more useful if I'd commented on LJ.

I seem to have bothered to get one of these now. I already *have* stopped blogging, but I still read things.

I'm still crossposting, I didn't reckon I had a lot to gain by *not* posting to LJ as long as my journal was backed up elsewhere. Though I'm not sure if that's right.

I don't blog as personally as I used to, but I continue pouring whatever crossed my mind heedlessly out into the ether :)

That makes sense. *shrug* That's what I've defaulted to doing, but I'm not sure where I *should* put the line.

Well, there's a very blurry line between 'this is a thing I use' and 'this is a thing I approve of'

This confused me completely until I realised you were talking about appearance rather than reality :-) In my head, 'use' and 'approve of' are so different that it's hard to imagine getting them muddled up, and there are any number of reasons why you might not approve of a thing but find it necessary to use it anyway (or, indeed, approve of a thing so much that you'd like to use it, and feel sad that you keep failing to find good occasions to do so).

But of course they do look a lot more similar from outside the head of the person doing the using/approving/both/neither, and it looks as if that was what you really meant.

(Hello, by the way! I am still reading on both LJ and DW at the moment. I'm pondering turning off my crossposts to LJ, but since my current rate of actually posting anything at all is of the order of a handful of posts a year, I feel as if it's not as urgent a decision for me as it has been for other people. I don't expect that I'll stop reading LJ until I feel as if it's not adding any value over DW – but then, at the current rate of migration, that could actually happen.)

Ah, whereas I went with 'I can only keep these t&cs by not posting' and didn't even consider the 'they're bad rules so I don't have to keep them' which I think is a reasonable response.

[personal profile] jack 2017-05-02 01:08 pm (UTC)(link)
That would have made sense. I went the other way, of almost giving up expecting T&C to be reasonable.

Yeah. I'm cross-posting to LJ, but I'm not going to worry about the T&Cs, and if they delete my journal then at least I have DW.

I'm on DW, have been since 2009. In case you've forgotten I was [ profile] livredor on LJ.

You were one of a very small handful of people who I thought still preferred LJ over here, so if you're moving to primarily here that makes my life easier as I have that much less reason to post to LJ. I accepted the T&Cs without at all approving of them. I've stopped cross-posting but not actually deleted my LJ, though perhaps I should. But haven't got round to formally announcing that I've moved away.

You have already spotted me, but I have migrated entirely to DW. I am still getting used to checking the reading page so I'm generally a bit further behind on it than I would have been on LJ though.

Reading, here on DW: no longer touching LJ with a bargepole.
