Sad day

With a heavy heart I am moving my journal to dreamwidth. I've been on LJ for 15 years, and weathered many "LJ is going down!" panics, but this one is different. This time I'm joining the mass exodus prompted by the servers being moved to Russia, and more concerning, the elimination of secure pages. I seriously doubt anyone's going to be data mining my journal, but the very idea makes me uncomfortable and I feel like I can no longer support LJ.

Instead I'll move to a paid account on DW and post there exclusively. I do have my account set to crosspost all of my entries, so technically my journal will be mirrored on LJ, but I won't be checking it or commenting there. I hope all of my friends make the switch as well so I can keep up with you. DW has very easy migration tools and it took less than an hour for them to import my 8,000+ entries, all their comments, and my complete profile.

I'm going through my friends list and looking for posts saying if they've moved to DW and what their username is there so I can add them. If I've missed you, please comment on the DW post and I'll add you posthaste. This post over there is public for exactly that reason.

Love, and happy new year!

I'm over here too, though not officially moving yet, I am keeping my options open.

I've seen a couple others say they are going to turn off comments on LJ when crossposting, FWIW. That way you don't have to worry about it and maybe it will get a few more people to check out DW.

The whole thing really does suck but I guess it was just luck it lasted for so long at all. What the hell else from the internet in 2000 is still around? NOT MUCH. lol

I added you!
Slowly importing my stuff, It's nice to have a backup of LJ at the very least!
Er, this is labradors, :D Guess I'll finally be rid of that name which basically has no meaning to me.
