Not only did I import all my posts from [livejournal.com profile] renewed2, which is my current lj, I've also decided to import posts from my earlier livejournal. Reading through all of my entries made me sad and brought back so many bad memories.

My life has changed since the journal's creation in 2007, but I feel I haven't progressed enough. I'm still living in the same place, still dealing with similar issues, still this and still that. When will my circumstance truly change? I'm truly tired of living in this shit hole shared with an enabling dope and a fuckin shit-head. Living here wouldn't be so bad if it weren't for those two. 

I hate it that I sacrificed so much time and money going to school. Yes, I finally completed school and earned a BFA, but it was done at a huge cost to me and my sanity. 

Looking back at my life, I wish I had someone looking after me and my best interests instead of their own selfish agendas. 

I suppose I shouldn't look back, can't change anything. I'm trying to look forward, but it's difficult.

I like WordPress, but automating the cross posting was a headache, so for the time being I will be posting from DreamWidth. I still think it's fugly and I'm unsure if DreamWidth will even be around in the next two years, BUT it's the most compatible with Livejournal so...

UGH!!!

This cross posting thing is stupid. Livejournal and Dreamwidth strips all rich and html text. I shouldn't care, but it's the designer in me that is very bothered by the fugliness of the posts sans formatting. Why can't I just use RSS without email to update these stupid blogs?! UGH!!!

So this is my first cross post from WordPress. Considering there isn't a service that enables direct cross posting/sharing between Livejournal and WordPress, figuring everything out was a bit of a headache until I found this post ( http://www.lexislounge.net/2007/09/publish-your-blogger-blog-to.html )  detailing how to make use of Livejournal's email posting.

Instead of having a direct posting connection between WordPress and Livejournal, I added another connection, which is Dreamwidth.

DreamWidth was not necessary to enable the crossposting, but I added it as an backup/archive account. My Dreamwidth username is nibblezz ( http://nibblezz.dreamwidth.org/ ) . This is how my cross posting works:

Post from WordPress goes to email subscriber (DreamWidth's special email posting address) > Posts to DreamWidth (account is set-up to automatically cross post to my livejournal) > WordPress post appears on Livejournal.

There are a few kinks to work out such as the post formatting, but I'm sure in time I'll figure out how to make the posts less cluttered with all that category junk WordPress adds to it's email subscriptions.

I wanted to make an account over at Xanga, but they're not accepting new users :(

WordPress wins by default. Love the fresh and clean themes. The free version doesn't have the level of post customization compared to Livejournal, but it'll have to do.

Maybe I'll just output my WordPress blog posts to livejournal. Not sure how I want to handle this. I'll figure it out.

My WordPress blog.

Nothing there yet, but when I get the time I'll customize it and maybe create a banner and new user images.

So Livejournal has a new user agreement. After 12 years regularly using this service I feel it's time to move on. There's no way in hell I want to conform to "the Civil Code of the Russian Federation."

No, I'm not a Russia hater. I have nothing against the Russian people, it's their government I have an issue with--most notably Putin. I could go into depth about all the ways I feel the updated user agreement will censor our speech, but why bother?

My only question about this, is what service will replace Livejournal? I've tried other blogging platforms and they're just not the same. I've heard of Dreamwidth, but the site looks AWFUL and who knows how long the site will be operational. I'll keep searching.

Home? Yes home, right now I'm suppose to be in class drawing, but instead I'm home blogging. Long story short I stayed up all night and day to complete a project, consequently I became too tired to drive, so I stayed home. After months of all nighters, driving on 2 hours of sleep, my body just had enough. I'm glad I stayed home. After that stupid cold, I'm pretty much wiped out. So I'm making the most of my time off tonight :)

I'm not leaving Livejournal, I'm just undecided about where to host my professional blog. I already have a blogger and it gets the job done, but it's pretty isolating. Tumblr offers a community of users, while the Weebly blog offers seamless website integration. WordPress is known for it's professional content, but considering I don't what to go through the trouble of hosting my blog and associated issues I'm going to eliminate it as an option right now. I think I'm also going to eliminate the Weebly blog. Eh. I don't know...it's just doesn't have the advance out-of-the-box capabilities in terms of features and look that Tumblr and Blogger have.

Hmmm...

Perhaps I should keep blogger as my main blog and dump my blogger posts to Tumblr. Now I just have to figure that one out...

Thought I would try the paid/premium LJ account for 14 days. Being able to use Google analytics is one of the perks of having a paid account.

I'm a bad influence...my mother is addicted to Angry Birds. I gave her my old 2G iPhone to play her little games and check her bank balance. Perhaps I shall get her a smartphone for Christmas :)

It would seem most lj users have grown-up and left the lengthy question memes behind, but darn it I miss them! I want to do one so badly! 

Bleh.

Just as well. I need to complete my project for my 3D design class.
