Subject:Taking my ball and going home
Time:01:08 pm
Well, LiveJournal, it's been a good run. I had a great time and you were a major part of my internet day for five solid years. But, with sadness, I announce that this post will be my last. Even though I am paid up through December. Because I planned poorly.

I like LJ a lot and had a real sense of community and identity here when the place was busy. But, the fad seems to be over. Nearly everyone has moved on to either Twitter (kinda use it), Facebook (there in flesh but not in spirit), or some inconceivable state of not-internet. I'm down to less than five LJ friends that post with any regularity, so I can easily go days at a time without checking in. I'll keep up with you on RSS.

But the blog will live on, like a twenty-year-old cat that should have enjoyed a peaceful exit years ago. I've shifted my largely-ignored website to a new hosting service, and with it comes a wordpress installation, which I will use for future blogging. I still plan to do so at least at the frequency I've maintained over the last few months. Which is infrequent. But longing to be frequent.

Here is where I'll be. Please adjust brains and/or feed readers accordingly. Please do come visit me there. The first post is a doozy. Not one but THREE life-altering pieces of news.

yes, I'm not sure what happened to lj. Social networks only work so long as they are frequented by peeps, and unfortunately lj doesn't seem to be one of the cool kids anymore. Lj is a lot like detroit.
