Moved over to Dreamwidth

As with many folks, I've moved over to Dreamwidth in the light of the most recent changes to the LJ TOS (see https://mdlbear.dreamwidth.org/1592457.html for more details). My journal there is https://tagryn.dreamwidth.org/ . Posting will probably remain infrequent, as these days most of my online activity is limited to posting garden pictures on Facebook along with a few links to neat pages here and there, and occasionally reTweeting on that platform. Longer posts, which are what DW and LJ are really tailored towards, are harder to put together for time and other reasons.

If you're in the same boat, I do recommend DW. The process to copy your content from LJ to DW is fairly painless (see https://cellio.dreamwidth.org/2002597.html). If you are going to make the switch, also see https://mdlbear.dreamwidth.org/1592824.html for instructions on claiming your LiveJournal OpenID. Even if you're not sure that you want to make the switch, I'd highly recommend at least taking these two steps, in case LJ suddenly decides without warning to disallow copying over of your content to DW...which, given how the TOS change was rolled out, would not be at all surprising.
