This is my temporary post to welcome you to my new home on the Web since me and LJ had a bit of a falling out last week (starting March 4th, actually) over philosophical issues, which you can read about here. I’m not into underhanded blog/journal hosts, so I’m no longer going to blog/journal/whatever you want to call it with them.
Don’t get me wrong. I’m not doing this to be mean to LJ or to my friends. In my strange love/hate way, I still adore LJ, and it was home to various journals of mine for four years. I still like what LJ offers paid users especially, and I still like LJ as a whole, but I can’t deal with the deceptions in place there now, so I’m not going to. I figured it simplifies things for me both morally and emotionally to just move on.
In spite of what a pain it was to move Anti-AOL (it wasn’t easy, I promise), today I’m exceptionally happy – cheerful, even – to be back with WordPress (it’s not my first time here…ask almost…anyone). The CMS is extremely fast compared to LJ’s and offers many options that on LJ, you not only have to pay for, but code yourself (!yes, I coded most of it myself) and it just feels like a really smooth transition. I won’t be sorry I did this – I don’t think.
There might be (perhaps, major) changes to this layout soon – I bought the ability to change CSS, so I might as well. So, at times you’ll visit and things will look ugly and/or be dysfunctional and/or half-offline. Try to bear with me. I make most of my changes live, I change my mind a lot, and I’m never done tweaking anything, being the perfectionist that I am. My motto goes something like: “There’s always room for improvement” and there always is. That’s why I’m never done.
As always, if you can’t find something on this blog, just email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll be glad to help you out.
