A brief advisory and a request

self
I've just this evening created a mirror-journal on Dreamwidth (and backed up my LJ content to the DW journal).  If you're reading this and are on DW, let me know your journal ID Over There so that I can build a reading page on that side of the fence.  This applies whether or not you're on my current LJ friends-list.

Let me assure the gallery: I am not leaving LJ, nor do I have any present plans to do so.  That said, what I'm hearing about the latest friends-page redesign makes me think that it's time to implement a backup strategy, just in case.  New entries will be posted in both places (since DW is set up to easily auto-crosspost here). 

Crossposted from my mirror-journal on Dreamwidth; feel free to comment here or there.

Purely a judgment call. On one hand, LJ is unlikely to fold up and disappear in the immediate term, and right now we're slightly ahead of any Great Migration Wave. Also, the DW user base is presently a good deal smaller than the LJ user base, such that activity Over There is likely to be very quiet indeed unless you happen to be following an existing community or group of friends that's moving or has moved.

On the other, backing things up is never a bad idea, and at the moment joining DW does not require an invite code. (That may change if/when a migration rush *does* start, and at that point the journal-importer may also build up a backlog.)

I opened an account over there several "scares" ago - don't know how to do the back up, but should investigate and use the port while it's not clogged :>. Now if I can only remember my ID/PW ;>

A quick look finds that you are "twilight2000" Over There as well. As to password, your guess is likely to be far better than mine.... :-)

I have to check on my Dreamwidth--something like jreynoldsward or joycerw or something like that.

However, I've been mirroring posts onto LJ from my website at www.joycereynoldsward.com--a WordPress blog on my own domain. You can either click on the blog link or go to http://joycereynoldsward.com/joyce-reynolds-wards-peak-amygdala/blog.

Okay, let's try this again, fixing the formatting weirdness....

...aaand, "jreynoldsward" it is.

I'm also attempting to migrate myself to a WordPress Web domain, but it's going slowly -- in part because I want to be sure I set up parts of the new site to properly allow for a couple of sizeable content archives. For one thing, in the medium/long term, I want to put up all the old reviews from my Dragon and Amazing columns.
