This Livejournal Thing 
4th-Jul-2007 01:52 pm
So, mrissa asked how I was liking using Livejournal versus my old Journalscape journal. So far, I like it quite a bit. I'm planning on sticking with it, and more or less leaving my Journalscape journal on permanent hiatus.

One thing I'm noticing with Livejournal is that it's easier (and feels less silly) to dash off a very short post of a few lines. This has the advantage that I'm less likely to vanish off the face of the Internet when life gets busy. On the other hand, I'm well aware of the danger of this becoming "Wendy's New Improved Journal - Now with 54% more random and inane observations!"

Userpics are fun. And the ability to tag entries is entirely too much fun, as you can probably tell from my tag selections. (On the other hand, it's also useful when I want to see what I've posted on a particular subject.)

I get slightly more comments over here on LJ, which is nice.

I still have to look up the correct syntax every time I refer to another LJ user or do an LJ-cut, but I suppose I'll learn it in time.

I'm looking forward to figuring out how to customize my journal a bit more, which probably involves getting a paid account and all that good stuff.

In short, y'all are stuck with me. Have your friendslist filters ready!

Okay, I'm going to stop checking the Journalscape journal unless I hear otherwise, then.

The other thing about lj in busy times, besides the short posts, is that I don't feel like people will decide to stop checking my journal if I go several days without an update, because most of them are reading it on their friendspage rather than clicking laboriously on each link.
