ANNOUNCEMENT

I've always said I'd stick with Livejournal until it dies, but the limit has now been reached. So, unfortunately, over the next long while I will be transferring my primary journal activities to my Dreamwidth fractured mirror.

You're all welcome to follow me on there, but I won't be friending back (or whatever they call it) for a long while until I can figure out how to reinstate the filters on some filtered posts. Right now everything is far too exposed over there. This will be a very rocky process.

I'm also looking for:
-Clear simple instructions on how to download and backup the stuff I have in Livejournal's Scrapbook, along with its folder structuring.
-An image hosting service that's cheap/free and reliable and offers at least 2gb of space.
-Places on Dreamwidth to find fandom communities there.

I'm sure more things will crop up as this process gets underway.

If I manage to write anything during this period, it will be posted to my AO3 account I do have a semi-active tumblr that I'm currently reblogging a lot of Merlin and random things on, and very rarely posting anything myself.

Can you DM me how it goes? I'm seriously considering doing the same. Not that I journal much anymore but I don't like the new TOU

Supposedly DW imports the filters etc., although they naturally call it by a totally counterintuitive name, like all their stuff. Of course, they also supposedly don't double-import entries, and, oh well....

And if you find anything decent to read on DW, please share. Nobody likes me enough to tell me anything.

I'll pre-emptively friend you and you can friend me when you're ready.

It seems like everyone is moving to DW these days.

I have a journal there, but I'll have to get to it and try to friend you there.

I'm sorry to see you go, as I've always enjoyed your posts. All the best to you!

I understand. Had decided to delete mine before this happened, so yes. Good luck with the transition.

Just a heads-up

When you move things over to Dreamwidth, you need to update your links for anything going to LJ (when this started being a mess, I went and looked at your DW backup because I love your reaction posts, and I noticed that your backup index post still had all its links pointing back here) so they point to the DW post instead.

Unfortunately, I can't give you any advice on anything else you asked (I just mirrored on DW back in February, when watsons_woes started getting worried). But I happened to notice the link problem on my own new DW, so I've been passing it along whenever I see someone moving.

Good luck with the transition.
