Well, it seems to have worked--I updated my Dreamwidth account with my old Livejournal entries. I haven't checked it out in detail but my archive goes back to 2003 in both places now.

From here on in I'm almost certain to just post the same thing to both places and read both sets of friends lists (or "reading pages" as DW calls it), so I figure I'll see the same thing twice a lot, which is fine. :) I also have no real preference as to where folks post their comments, whichever works best for you is fine.

I really don't want to leave Livejournal. I like it. It's comfortable. I have history there. I'm settled in there. But I don't want to lose touch with the folks who are leaving, which is why I started my Dreamwidth account. I'm certainly still open to adding folks on LJ.

I also like Dreamwidth. It's definitely got a different feeling to it, but that's cool. I am of course also open to adding folks on DW. :)

So in case you didn't know, yes I have a Dreamwidth. It's at:


And yes I have a Livejournal. It's at:


Now what?

I'm still not exactly sure what to do with my DreamWidth journal. So far (as with this entry) I've mostly been just writing the same thing both here and on Livejournal, but I imagine the novelty of that will fade soon enough.

The thing about that is, most of the folks I've added to Dreamwidth's Flist-equivalent are also on my LJ Flist, so I don't want to make people read the same damn thing twice. I know some folks are giving up LJ for DW, but a lot are using both. And to be honest, I just don't have enough to say to write new and clever things for two journals, you know?

Or maybe I'm worrying for nothing. I know that I don't mind seeing the same thing in two places (I just skim or skip it the second time I see it) so maybe others don't either?

In the mean time I suppose I will continue to double-post. Because I can.

Question: if something happens to a particular post on DreamWidth that I've double-posted to LJ, does that post disappear on LJ as well? I'm assuming not, but then the internet is a dark and mysterious place.

I used ljbackup to back up my LJ (go figure). Should I be using ljarchive instead?

EDIT: Well, I tried ljArchive, and the interface is certainly prettier, but it skipped downloading a number of entries, which I don't like. Well, I'll play with it some, but that's quite a flaw as far as I'm concerned.

So, uh...

what's all this then?

Head cold. Sinuses ache. Feel like crap. Very likely skipping Pagan Coffee Night tomorrow, FYI if you're local.

(Oh, I finally removed all those deleted journals--the ones with lines through them--from my Flist. If I accidentally removed a non-deleted one, I didn't mean to, so please let me know.)

Thank you [livejournal.com profile] eternalhearts for the pretty rose! :)

December 9 Yule quilt progress: 37/64.

You know, I just haven't had much to say lately.

I got to see my favorite Monty Python skit tonight, the one about The Llama :).

To everyone on my Friends List who talks with knowledge and passion about politics, or philosophy, or religion, or art, or books, or music...

Thank you for making me think.

Sometimes I get so bogged down in the details of life that I stop thinking outside of myself for a while. Thank you for helping to bring me out into the rest of the world when I need it.

I've been idly going through my old journal entries and applying tags to them (because it's fun!! and of course only incidentally a distraction from stuff I ought to be doing :)). It'll make it a lot easier (well, maybe not a lot easier but somewhat easier) to locate stuff. I'm wondering if it's going to change the way I write journal entries now--am I going to be more likely to keep each entry its own theme (i.e. not write about health stuff and kid stuff and ritual stuff and book stuff all in the same entry)? I hope not, but I guess I'll find out.

So I took a look at LJ news today, and apparently they're having a contest for new styles. You can see them at [livejournal.com profile] lj_stylecontest and some of them are sooo pretty!

See, every so often I get tired of looking at my LJ page and have to change it, immediately. But I don't get so desperately tired of it that I'm at all likely to make something brand new (that would not be immediate :)). So to me this is way cool!

Just in case anyone on my Friends List is concerned, not only have I never used Frienditto, I never heard of it until yesterday. Doesn't seem like all that useful an application anyway, does it?

I may be incredibly slow on my replies for the next few days (maybe until Sunday or Monday) but I'll get to them, I promise :).

So today is March 2nd, I am pretty sure of that. So why is it that the two posts I made earlier each say March 1?

I thought it might have something to do with Leap Day; however, I see plenty of other folks' entries dated March 2--just not mine. Snif.

Old news, but I almost never check LJ's site news page; today, for some reason, I did. They are planning on changing the Friends system. Specifically,

One of our big goals for February is to split up the overloaded concept of "friends", turning it into separate categories relating to who you read on your friends page, who you trust to read your entries, who you know in real life, etc.

Isn't that kind of the same thing as filters? And I think (although I haven't used it so I'm not sure, have seen folks refer to it though) that you can also control who of your Friends list you actually see on your Friends page (some people don't include communities, for example). So I'm wondering if there is anything new here functionally, or is this just a different way to do the same things.

I can't imagine that I would do anything differently in any case--I figure that if I can read your journal, you can read mine :)--but I am curious to see what they come up with.

Dan went to the brew club meeting tonight, and the girls wanted to watch a dog show on Animal Planet, so I spent the evening playing with the settings on my LJ. Hey, everyone needs a change once in a while!

Now why is it that when I Click Here to get the full Update Journal page, I have to work fast because if I don't, pretty soon I'm going to be moved to a blank update page? It's kind of annoying to have to hit "Back" before I can submit an entry. Is this a common problem?

And come to think of it, why--when I'm at the full update page--does the mood menu sometimes appear out of order, so I have to count backwards to get the mood I want to appear (and then probably have to edit the entry later anyway because I miscounted and said I was cranky when I was actually creative)?


You know, you guys are lucky my kids don't go on vacation more often, you'd never hear the end of me :).

Just a quick meta kind of note saying that I'm still having some trouble grasping this whole LJ thing, and may have realized why that is. I think it may be the word "journal" that throws me; I expect I define it as a medium with a different sort of audience (anywhere from delayed to none) than exists here. It's cool, though--and I think it's somehow good for me :).

Well, I'm not sure what to say--I'm not even sure why I am starting this thing (or why I'm starting it a few days before I'll be offline for a week!)--but I might as well jump right in.

I've just made a "Better Than Sex" Cake. It isn't, of course, but it is pretty decadent. We're having company tomorrow, and for once it isn't for a meeting, study group, or ritual, so I'm looking forward to socializing without heavy thinking entering into it. In a few weeks we'll be back to the usual stuff--well, I enjoy that as well!
