Well, I may have somewhat overstated that. You can forgive me later, I am sure.
As almost everybody on LJ is likely aware now, there are guys running around with "the end is nigh!" sandwich boards due to the signs of the times (to wit: the firing of over 2/3 of LJ’s employees, likely an indication that LJ is going on life support before too much longer and getting the plug pulled entirely at some point).
While I’m not in a giant rush, I have decided that it might be wise to begin checking out some other blogging alternatives. I’ve got a social networking thing in facebook, but I want something that’s specifically for blogging so I can keep my social network and my blog at least somewhat separate. I’ll talk mostly about geeky stuff and odd news items etc as ever in the blog of course. Now to ponder on where to hop to. WordPress is a possibility, as is blogspot. I hear that it’s possible to import an LJ journal into wordpress as well, which is nice. I guess I’d best do some actual research on this pretty soon.
LJArchive‘s looking like a good thing, too.
Any suggestions? Are any folks on my flist heading off in any specific direction?
