I don't WANT to leave LJ!

Now that I know a lot of people are leaving LJ and moving to DreamWidth now, I feel the need to make a probably incoherent ramble about how I really don't want to have to move to DreamWidth, or even create a backup journal on DreamWidth just because everyone else is. (Unless there's a way to transfer ALL of my old entries and ALL of the comments on them there, because I'm a nostalgic guy who likes having a LJ because I get to look back at old entries and comments from several years ago and DO NOT want to lose that, especially not while I'm still not done with my trip through memory lane / catching up on things I'd went on a hiatus from checking) So if you're moving to DreamWidth or another site, PLEASE don't leave LJ entirely, okay?

This is making me so sad... In 2015 or so, LJ was already a lot less active than it used to be - now it feels like everyone who hasn't already left is leaving! :(

There is. The importer can grab your whole journal, tags, icons, profile, comments and all. Good luck!

love, lore

Well said! I'm not going anywhere either. I love my LJ and I'm staying right here.

What just happened?!?
Did I just turn into a highly visible user?! When I started this journal in 2007 and came back to it after a hiatus in 2009, I never thought that 10 or 8 years later, THIS would happen!

So, hi new people! I know most posts in this journal probably only make sense to long-time readers, that's because I never expected this to happen. I'll post an entry answering your comments later.

I've been on LJ since their popular days, before the company began to switch hands so often and I'll always have a soft spot for it. For me, it just began to feel like screaming into the void because so many of the amazing people that I came to know here left, and now with the TOS change, even more of those people are leaving. Dreamwidth is a good alternative, and I'm pretty sure I have a journal over there that I don't remember the details to, and maybe I should dust that thing off. Right now, I'm trying to make a home on Imzy.com. It's up and coming and in a stage where members feedback is being heard quickly, and being responded to, which is something that I like. I like to feel like I'm building my presence at a site that is also building itself up at the same time. It's not for everyone, but I like new and shiny sometimes and feeling like I have a say in things.

If I had to pick six words to describe myself, I would panic and ask someone for help because I am so downright random and weird that there is no possible way to describe myself or my journal in only six words.

So here's a list of things you'll probably see in this journal, in no particular order:
- Posts about my life
- Posts about my worrying about being disliked for any number of reasons
- Posts about the fact that I'm trying to fix all the things that are messed up in my LJ and DW and catch up on lots of websites that I'm behind on reading
- Backups of my posts on Miiverse now that Miiverse is discontinued... so if you want to know what some random guy was saying about New Super Mario Bros. U or Nintendo Land five years ago, this is the journal for you :P
- Quizzes and surveys and such
- References to random things I'm obsessed with
- Whatever else I feel like posting

Some of the random things I'm obsessed with are:
- LiveJournal (obviously)
- Looking back at things that were made years ago... old posts on LJ, etc.
- Math
- Weird dreams
- Video games (mostly Mario, Super Smash Bros., Kid Icarus, and Chip's Challenge)
- Video game music
- Homestar Runner
- Enya, my favorite singer and biggest celebrity crush
- Too many comics/webcomics to name... Garfield, mezzacotta, Terror Island, and Circle Versus Square might be the ones I'm the MOST obsessed with though. Oh, and Super Mario Maker Crash Course - that counts as a comic, right? It certainly counts as something I'm obsessed with :P
- Speaking of Super Mario Maker Crash Course, my biggest *fictional* crush is Mary O. Yes, I have a crush on the guide to a video game MANUAL. I'm so weird...


For a (hopefully) complete list of interests and Q&A about me, visit my profile. :) (Which is still in need of an update...)

This journal is semi-friends-only, but there's not much rhyme or reason to which entries are public and which ones aren't...
