I notice that my livejournal account is expiring soon.

I will not be renewing, and I again encourage you all to look at LJ’s terms of service, and then make arrangements for a better place to host your journal. LJ has the right to suspend you – and refuse to ever return your journal, or return it only after charging you – for, basically, any reason they like. I would be happy to explain the migration process to WordPress, and give out a copy of my modified WordPress LJ importer that marks friends-only posts private.. (I really need to go through and improve it so that it actually supports friends.. I just haven’t had time to learn that much about the innards of wordpress)

Once more, LJ will suspend you for writing fantasy about underage sex. They will remove your user images if they show a casting of a nipple. They have put themselves in the role of Big Brother, and I’m not interested in having Big Brother telling me what I can and can’t write about my own life – which, by extension, feels like it is telling me what I can and can’t think.

    Good for you. LJ is the AOL of blogging 🙂 Unfortunately, that’s where most people go!

    I had a syndicated feed created for me, and it stopped working on 2/11, so now my LJ friends don’t see my stuff again. Argh.

    And don’t forget… people can head to for a simple free hosting package if they can install it themselves and I can help with or perform a basic install (without goodies or skins) for free on any paid account!:

    Paid hosting starts at $7/mo and domains are just $8.95 year! 🙂
