I'm just posting this to say that I'm moving my online presence to Dreamwidth. As soon as I figure out how to move my content over there, I will, probably after Nanowrimo is over (and finals.) I have created an account as hobgoblinn over there, same as here, although there is as yet no post in it. Maybe I'll rectify that this weekend.

I think some of you crosspost here from Dreamwidth, so if anyone would like to share advice or experiences, please do.

My main reason for this is I'm getting tired of all the spam comments on my old posts, and the taking away of paid accounts and other actions by the PTB just seem like things I don't want to tolerate when I don't have to.

So, I will still check in from time to time here until my account reverts to a free one next Spring, I think. I will give plenty of advance notice if I decide to completely pull the plug on this account.

In hobgoblinn news, my job continues to be wonderful, and I have taken both the GRE general and subject (English Lit) tests. Other than math being as expected horrible, I think I did quite well on the others, enough that I probably don't have to retake any of them to get into a doc program if I want to fill my summers with that in a year or two.

And Wee Hob is being a Senior. At least his Senior moments involve lack of homework and nothing more serious. And my beloved is still wonderful.

I better get back to my write in. Can any of this count for word count, do you think? I am so far behind!

Love to all.

Crossposting from DW is so easy you don't even have to do anything besides set it up once. For me, if I want to post something, I always do it through DW and there's a box that is automatically checked that crossposts it to LJ.

I'll look for you on DW and add you!

Good luck on NaNo! What sort of thing are you writing about this year?

Any writing I'm doing currently all has to do with class and grad school applications. I'm still in the process of writing a personal statement (x8), but I keep getting cold feat about writing it. Not to mention my family has a vendetta against me being allowed a day of no distractions so I can get things done.

Otherwise, what I started writing was a sort of apocalyptic kind of thing with a biblical slant.

Side-note, this layout is very Star Trekkish. I like it!

I occasionally pay for the account every now and again when I have extra cash. The only difference I notice is the addition of icons. I usually only change around my header and accents colors.

DW has an importer that will move all your content over. It doesn't work as well now as it has in the past because LJ has changed some of their code, but it should still work well enough to get you transferred over. You really do want to watch the official communities, because they are good about telling us what's going on behind the scenes.

Crossposting is really easy, once you link accounts (as you have to do to import your old stuff) you can check a ticky box to have it import over here accidentally.

I would love to have you on DW--it's my primary home, and I much prefer it--but fair warning, DW gets spam too (although generally a lot less). The best way of avoiding spam on any blogging service? Turn off anonymous commenting

You can add LJs to your reading page, but it won't show you anything you'd have to be logged in to see, so you won't get any flocked things. I keep up my LJ flist for that reason. Now that you're on DW, I've removed you from my flist default view, and added you to DW.

I'd keep your LJ for the simple reason that you might want to be able to comment to other peoples' entries, but turn off commenting. You do that by going to the Profile tab on the menu bar (the one that has options for Home Profile Journal Friends etc.) and selecting Settings. That brings you to a page with a line of tabs on the top. Select "Privacy" and in the list it says Enable Comments. You can set it to allow comments only from friends, or from nobody at all. Either will stop the spam.
