Just for the record  
I'm staying on LJ. I have a Permanent account, and I'm not going to give up the money I spent just to stomp off.

I am not on GJ, IJ, DJ, or any of those. Just here.

<Stomp, stomp, stomp.>

*Hugs*. Doesn't matter to me where you are; I'm glad you have an online presence.

*hugs you back* I do not begrudge you stomping.

If I detect a large chunk of my flist all moving to the SAME service, I'll probably get an account there too and use/write software to mirror my posts to both, as I too am a perm account holder here. But I'm guessing people will end up spread across a bunch of services and I'm just not that industrious. Similarly, I don't use any of the photo hosting services out there (fokti, shutterbug, fishsnap, blinko, flikr, etc etc etc) because there's not a clear favourite and I'm lazy. And my existing email provider just offered a bunch more storage and options for the same price, maybe I'll just host stuff there.

smashingstars made a very good post about the people whining about the current round, but it's locked.

Though it's sad to lose centralization, the up side of this diaspora is that all of these blogging networks can interlink with each other through syndicated feeds that show up on one's Friends page. The only thing that will be affected (alas) is Friends-locked entries, which is why I'm keeping my account at LiveJournal, even though I won't be blogging here any more.

Good point. I always use the web interface, though. And I can't install software at work. Grr. I suppose I could do RSS so the feeds show up on my flist, but commenting will be a pain in the ass.

I'm so lazy. :)

You do realize I might decide to take that as a challenge, and try to tempt you to change your mind, right? ;-)

Not gonna happen. :) Dude, I can't keep up with a bunch of places. Here I shall remain.

I'm leaving LJ, but at this point I plan to keep the account as a free account to read. But once I get organized I plan to only post elsewhere.

Aw, hell. Don't go! Argh!

I've been posting on *ahem* -=rhymes with MYFACE=- for awhile now.

I would post there, except I loathe the interface. Why does it look like it was designed by monkeys on crack?
