Well, it’s finally over. Livejournal, I mean. I gave them fourteen years of my life, but that appears to be all in the past. Doing all my journaling here from now on, and no longer cross-posting. I’ll be deleting my LJ ere long, or at least “sensitive” posts. Don’t know if I’ll keep up with the weekly self-portraits thing. The Weekly Puck, which I just updated, is still going strong.

I have to say, I don’t feel that Dreamwidth has the community that LJ did. I mean, people do this “granting access” thing, but I can’t find a way to read their posts apart from actually clicking on their name to read all their posts at once. Am I missing something? I know that DW is not LJ, but I feel there must be something obvious I’m overlooking. Apart from that, it kind of feels like shouting into Outer Space. There’s something disappointingly lacking in communication about DW, at least that I have seen so far. Writing with no audience isn’t terribly satisfying.

In space, no one can hear you scream. . .

Hi Mike,

Well, I am here now, and I suppose as the migration continues people will check in and let you know they are reading. It's a big change, and it will take time. But I'm sure the Dreamwidth people are eager to have communities form, and sooner or later someone will post instructions on how to do it. Perhaps AllanH, since he is a computer whiz.

Meanwhile, I am very impressed by the henna effect. Does it last as long as regular hair dye? And did you have to dye your mustache as well?

Your "Reading Page" is the equivalent of your Friends Page on LJ. In order for people's post to show up there, you need to Subscribe to them. It's a two-step process to get a fully symmetrical relationship with someone else.
