So Long, LiveJournal

Originally published at Rodney's Blog. Please leave any comments there.

Well…the time has come to say goodbye to old my friend, LiveJournal (LJ). Well, maybe not goodbye, but it won’t be my primary blog anymore.

I have now moved all of my content to my own WordPress-powered app on my own website at There were a few reasons to do this. First, LJ seems to struggle to keep up with the times. They don’t offer the ability for automatic re-direction for mobile users, non-LJ users found it difficult to comment, and most importantly, I am paying a monthly charge for a website that I am not getting full capacity from. So I have decided that over time I will start to make greater use of my own website’s capabilities (including blog and photos) and stop paying other places to host content that I myself can host for free. In the worst case, this will give me a reason to keep my website updated.

I actually won’t delete LJ…there is some great communities there that I still find relevant today and will continue contact with. It is just my blog will automatically post to LJ but the posts are essentially read-only now. Shortly the same thing will be done for Tumblr.

I hope you still following along. And hopefully this move to a new blog makes it even easier to do :)
