In my very slow way I am planning to copy my LJ archive over to DW, and make DW my primary journal. I have a permanent account on both sites so I haven't been as affected by the creeping ads found over in LJ-land, but the constant DDOS issues, plus the ads to non-paying members, is making that site more and more unusable as time goes on. It's a shame as I've enjoyed it, and will continue to cross-post to LJ even when I've rehomed to DW, and answer comments at either place.

Anyhow, I want to finish some tag cleanup before I do that, because it's easier for me to retag things on LJ than here. (I have an offline app that handles it pretty well.)

But people who know me from DW and not from LJ might be surprised by non-recipe content (heck, any content at all; it's been a long time since I've been coherent enough to post a recipe here) coming online in... oh... probably a month or two... so I wanted to give a head's up. In the meantime any post-like things will continue to occur over there.

I've never paid for DW so far, and I admit that my lack of my vast icon collection kind of slows me down for using it. Intellectually I know I can just post here and it mirrors to LJ and, as you say, I can respond to comments wherever they occur. I dunno.

If I started paying for DW I'd probably stop paying for LJ, though. Neither of them are really expensive, it's just... principle? Not really. Cheapness. :)

Okay, I'm a little surprised I can't edit my comment. Can't I do that on LJ? Am I nuts?

Anyway I was going to say that another thing that bugs me is having to go both places to read new posts, but really, the new posts I get on LJ must be as many as... 3-4 per day, tops? So probably not that big an issue. :)

They make it pretty trivial to put in crosslinks. Theoretically I should have it set up (after the last one I crossposted, sadly.)

I have "Other Sites" set up like this:

Disable comments on crossposts to other sites is unchecked.

Add the footer to the post on the other site is set to Always.

My footer is set to:
<span style="font-size: smaller;">This entry was originally posted at <a href = "%%url%%">%%url%%</a>.</span>

And then I have both Crosspost by default and Display crosspost link checked on the Livejournal entry above.
