Back on June 25th, 2000 I posted my first entry over at LiveJournal. 10 years, 2,778 entries, and 6,347 comments later I’ve decided that it is time to move on.
Realistically, between sites like twitter, flickr, and my bookmarks over at delicious I simply don’t end up posting to my LJ as much anymore. LJ used to really appeal to me due to the large community and the discussions it generated. But now it feels more like just another abandoned alleyway on the Internet. I suspect that most people who read my posts do so through RSS or Facebook anyway.
So i have moved everything over to my new blog at https://sean-graham.com/. For the time being I will leave a cross-posting script set up to post my entries over there to LJ, but I don’t know how long that will last. I have disabled comments on my LJ, so if you want to discuss a posting of mine there will be a link at the bottom of each post to bring you back to my WordPress blog.
The edges are still rough at the new place, and while most of the content and comments have imported successfully, there were a few problems (100 or so anonymous comments seem to have been assigned to the wrong posts), but so it goes… I have been manually going through and fixing these edge cases when I have the time. The look of the new blog will probably change quite a bit in the near future.
So there it is. Update your bookmarks, RSS readers, etc. This is a perfect time to also start ignoring me. I rarely have anything of value to say anyhow. :)
