So - yo, tell me. Why are people suddenly jumping the LJ ship? It has been common knowledge for a while that the forum has been shuttling backwards and forwards to Russia, but it seems that people's friends and private docs are going missing. Is this just a server issue, or are there more problems afoot? I have been thinking of leaving LJ for a while, but quickly I found out that cherished LJ friends were not on other forums. It seems however, that some have Dreamwidth accounts.
I went through some old files on only one particular subject and uploaded it to Word, to find that I had written a staggering 17,000+ words on it since January 2012. Let me tell you that is nothing in comparison to what I wrote/typed before - it's just the tinsiest fraction. I was like - wow, so much airtime, where did it go? I regret not uploading the stuff between 2006 to 2012 (I had a habit of clearing my journal one a year on New Years Eve, but have since given up, as I now blog more frerquently and it takes twice as long.
I, too, have a dreamwidth account, but seldom use it, as it was a tad empty. Anyone from up here want to knock on that door, click HERE
