Right.

I'm definitely moving from Livejournal to Wordpress. New address is:

http://cfrankdavis.wordpress.com

I haven't actually written much at the new Wordpress site. It may take a few days before I get into writing stuff. For now I've just been trying out different templates, and the text editor it's got. So the look of it will change around a bit. I'll probably keep it a bit like the Livejournal page (whose text font and size I've grown accustomed to). i.e. simple.

Wordpress all seems to be much more slicker than Livejournal. And it seems there are more features available.

Commenting should be easier. No captchas (that I've seen yet anyway). At the moment it's set for people to put name and email address (just like WUWT). If people want to comment anonymously they can just put "anonymous" and a silly, made-up email address like "anon@anonymous.org". It doesn't seem to check email addresses. Comments have the usual HTML italic, bold, and stuff.

There's an option to import from Livejournal to Wordpress, but it might take a long time, given some 500 Livejournal posts and quite a few images. Whichever way, I'll leave the Livejournal stuff as it is. Except maybe switch off comments after a while (not yet anyway).

I probably won't post here any more.

So long Livejournal.

I'm not going to shut it down. I intend to leave the above as a last post, so that people know where to go.

Leg-iron had a Livejournak blog for a long time, and then moved to Blogspot, but kept his old Livejournal blog in being.

I may also copy the entire blog to Wordpress, so as to keep it all together.

No need to shut it down. You can feed directly from your WP site into LJ. I do it all the time (every post).

I'm self-hosted at http://slamlander.caselle-vpn.net

Also, I use LiveWriter to post to my WP blog. Formatting get very good that way. You are in trhe UK and I'm in Switzerland. If you want help send email to slamlander at caselle-vpn dot net. I'll be very happy to help you with plugin selection and whatnot.

Thanks. I'll bear it in mind.
