…I’ve been worrying for some time that Livejournal may one day go away and that everything I’d written there might disappear. My friend Jim Flangan sent me a script that could scrape everything in case I wanted to host it elsewhere, but I never relished the work that it would take.
Then, in an instant I noticed the tool on WordPress.com that would allow me to re-home the journal here with just a little bit of work. And in a trice, it was done!
I write for a number of other blogs, but sometimes there are just things I want to put in a personal online journal because they don’t quite fit elsewhere. Now I can do that and I don’t have to worry about it disappearing. I believe WordPress will be around for a long time.
