I haven't been here for about year and a half... and honestly, I would prefer to have just one journal (LJ), but in the past few days (weeks), I see that more and more of you use DW (and crosspost to LJ), so I decided to at least take a look here again.
It feels a little strange and I am a little confused - LJ feels more like home. But then, I don't like some new "improvements" on LJ. No, I don't want to leave it, not if I don't have to. But let's be prepared, just in case... What I'm sure of, is that I won't renew my paid account on LJ. I'm not giving them my money any more. Not for their "improvements".
Anyway, for now, I'm staying on LJ, and I'll probably post only on LJ. But in this post, I'll try crossposting.
And in the end, question for those of you with basic account on LJ - you can have 15 icons, if I remember correctly?

I'm on the fence still about whether to renew my paid account. I'd hate to lose my icons! *iz shallow that way*

I'm still using DW mostly as back-up, and am very thankful it's there.

Yes, I hate to lose icons too, but I'll stay with my decisions. I already started to delete some icons that I used only once or twice. It won't be easy to reduce it to 15, but I'll do it.

I post my daily blog from DW over to LJ because it is a bit easier for me to copy my blog from my standard eblog to DW and then LJ than to LJ directly. That said, I don't use DW for anything else, and most of my friends are on LJ and so I choose that platform to interact with them. I may not like everything they do, and they are attacked often, but I'm one more lemming among a crowd of fellow lemmings and I like the company I keep on LJ. I read you wherever you choose to post :-)

I like LJ and my friends here too, and I hope I'll stay here for a long time. :)

I will probably keep my paid account, but may get one at DW as well. Right now LJ is my main place to hang out, and I will probably stay here until someone tears it down.

But I am going to also post sometimes at DW, and I will import my LJ there more frequently.

(You do know you can import your whole LJ over there, right?)

I know that, for I've heard people talk about it, but I still haven't discovered how... *blush*

It's not too difficult to do, although it is taking longer these days because of LJ acting up.

Just go to your profile page, and click on "Organize" and then "Import Content" in the drop down. Then you are sent to a page with directions on how to do it. Just follow all of the directions in the order they are given.

I've never had a problem with it, though some people say they've had to try a few times before they are successful.

A basic LJ account only allows 6 icons, I believe. (http://www.livejournal.com/support/faq/38.html) A Plus Account gives you 15 icons. I have been using a Plus Account since my paid account expired, because I don't want to pay anymore either. Plus Account is free but it puts ads on your page. They do not seem to be too intrusive, but I use an ad blocker anyway, so I never see them.

I haven't been posting much lately, but when I do, I've been mostly doing it from DW, which cross posts to LJ. However, most of my friends are still here!

I meant plus account.
If I'll need help with how to use ad blocker, I'll ask you, ok?
