I've moved to https://ernieseruditions.wordpress.com/!
I've been on LiveJournal since the navel-gazing days of blogging, even paying for a permanent account during one of the early pushes. I remember running my own instance of one of their servers, back when it was open source. I definitely write in fits and bursts, and I'm sure there's some embarrassing posts and thoughts, but I think that's to be expected considering 18+ years of posts. Having been around so long, it feels like it's worth preserving the posts.
Picking Wordpress.com was mainly since it seems like the best free option these days for a personal blog. My currently reading The Year Without Pants likely influenced the decision as well. I'd also recently assisted with moving the Montana Destination Imagination page from Drupal to Wordpress and had been pretty impressed with the software as well as the ecosystem. The political bits about LiveJournal being owned by Russians and concerns over free-speech were also a factor.
I'll still be a sporadic poster, with random thoughts and no cohesive theme to anything here. Just a place to dump my thoughts.
