head shot

Dreamwidth, fer Reals

Well, spent an hour or two getting used to the lay of the land here, and having beaten a theme I could stand into submission until it didn't completely make my eyes bleed (through the application of a fair amount of custom CSS -- I wasn't quite willing to write a style completely from scratch, which would have taken longer. Maybe I will someday).

So, well, I'm officially here on Dreamwidth.

So... From now on, I'll be posting to Dreamwidth instead of Livejournal. I think Dreamwidth is probably the future, and if it isn't, well, I still don't care, because the key point is that it doesn't annoy me like Livejournal increasingly has, and besides, the people I read are slowly switching over. Plus... I don't really care that much about blogosphere in the first place, truth be told (as if you couldn't tell by my extremely frequent posting), especially as I've now uncoupled all of my RSS feeds from it. I read the stuff that seems interesting as I have the time.

And so... Now I've got a seed account here to go with my permanent account on LJ.

So, what does that really mean? For the time being, I'll be crossposting from DW to LJ, although eventually it's likely I'll stop, maybe in a year, maybe in three. Or maybe never -- you never know. I'll still read my friends list on LJ for a while, although eventually I'll probably stop doing that, too. No idea when that might happen, though, maybe in a year, maybe in three, maybe after some other finite period of time.

If anyone is interested in moving as well (or, well, diversifying?), I do have a number of Dreamwidth invitation codes; I just need an email address to send them to. You can leave a comment with your email address, or probably better yet, get my email address out of my profile (if you don't already have it) and drop me a line. At the moment I still have eleven left; I think Ai-chan might have more, too, on the off chance I actually run out.

Anyway... That's the state of the blog. Other than the hosting, it's unlikely much will change.
