altivo: Blinking Altivo (altivo blink)
Suddenly I'm seeing talk about migration from LJ to DW (or other platforms) again. I bailed from LJ not long after the Russians took over, and don't know a lot about what happened to it since then. I've been quite happy with DW but then, I don't insist on a constantly shifting platform that wants to be "cutting edge" all the time even if that means undercutting its own long term users. I have accounts elsewhere (Blogspot, Tumblr, FA, Furry Network, and so forth) but don't really use them or care for the sites. Mostly I keep them to avoid being impersonated by someone else. I do use Twitter with some regularity, but don't consider it to be as effective for real communication.

Anyway, for those who are choosing to leave LJ now and come over to DW, welcome. Dreamwidth has a number of things in its favor. They promised not to try the kinds of wholesale censorship that SixApart fell down on. They promised not to shove advertising in your face. In my experience and exposure (which may not be complete, admittedly) they have kept those promises. I consider that a huge point in their favor. I am happy to pay the annual charge for a paid account, and I encourage any of you who can afford to do so to follow my example. DW staff are helpful and unobtrusive, and the site has very few technical difficulties (unlike some of the dedicated furry sites that I won't single out by name.)

I generally follow back most who choose to follow me, and my DW journal is public, not locked or private. I look forward to reacquainting myself with old friends and perhaps meeting new ones.
