 /pour 40.

Well, I finally did it. I pulled the trigger and nuked all my accounts from orbit. 

Everything, all my alts, were backed up here as of mid-January, anyway. I've had a paid account here since then as well. My main journal has been backed up here since 2009.

I was a latecomer to Livejournal. I joined in mid-2004, towards the end of the mass fandom migration from Yahoogroups to LJ. I've mostly used other social media services since 2012, but I always missed LJ as an outlet. Tumblr can be toxic at times, and I've come to the (very belated) realization that it's really geared more towards content sharing than interaction. Facebook feels just as toxic sometimes. I always hoped the LJ diaspora would end someday....but let's face it, LJ Strikethrough in 2007 was the beginning of the end, and we all knew it. It hung on for 10 more years, but the transport of the servers to Russia really was the final nail in the coffin.

So long, LJ. Thanks for the memories.

I'm not emotionally ready to delete mine yet. I'll probably let it stand until the Russians take it down.

*sigh* Yeah, I'm going to have to axe mine too soon. Despite everything, I've been really dragging my heels; a bunch of my story illustrations are hosted there, which means I'm going to have to find what images are broken and then rehost them all. D:

Also, since it's my primary form of interacting, I need to figure out a way to optimize it for search engines; you can find my Dreamwidth itself, but it's impossible to find any given post by Googling! I have the robots.txt checkbox axed, so I'm no sure what the issue is.

We joined LJ back in 2007. I'm amazed we managed for so long. <.<

By the way, you're more knowledgeable about Internet security than me. Is there a security risk in just leaving my LJ up? Not interacting with it, just leaving it? I'm kinda tech-dumb, and my primary reason for killing the LJ (instead of just leaving it there as an archive) was fears of getting hacked. I have Paypal buttons on my LJ, and removing them all manually would be such a bear; I'd be pretty much guaranteed to miss some.

Yeah, I really hope it works out! I like Dreamwidth better than other online platforms I've been on, and I understand it better than Wordpress.

I have all the images on my computer, thankfully, it's mostly just the annoyance of reuploading them elsewhere and then linking them. Bleh! The annoyance of using blogs for a fiction writing business.
