Moving?

I'm thinking about leaving LJ. It has served me well for 6 years (holy batman, 6 years I've been on LJ!) but I'm looking to refocus my online presence (really focus on finances, family, cooking and spirituality) and I think creating a new avenue for that will help me focus. I really like the features that wordpress supplies, and it comes highly recommended from several people.

I haven't decided yet - I have a *LOT* of memories here and it would be silly for me to just up and leave. But I want something that is more accessible to people outside of livejournal, and something that gives me more... more web2.0, I guess, which is a silly way of saying it but a fairly accurate one.

So I guess I'm wanting opinions - does anyone utilize google reader or something so they can keep up with me? I plan on moving my livejournal friends over there so I can keep up, but I don't want to just leave. I mean, I have a bit of emotional attachment to livejournal but it just hasn't been convenient for me to stay updated. I could set it up to double post to whatever new blog and this blog, if that was something people were interested in.

Also, kiwiria if you still have that information on exporting LJ that you found before, if you could hook me up with that... thanks :)

I have several friends that now carry on journals in other communities. I have their addresses in my favorites and go to visit them from time to time. We'd miss you here, but I understand. What communities are you considering?

Yup, I use google reader, so I'd be able to keep up with you :)

And yes, I still have that information - http://www.ljbook.com - allows you to convert your LJ to a PDF. I recommend doing it a year at a time though. Otherwise it'll be unmanageable.

leaving?
ive been around 4 a little while. i didnt know u could twiddeo on lj! how do u do that? as 4 lj, my needs r pretty simple. i can write from my fone & ppl can read it. since im an old-timer im tickled pink that i can publish 2 a readership at all. when i was your age that was a pipe-dream. i think if anything, u could find a new direction 2 blog in; but i should read more thasn a page of your blog 2 find out if thats really true.

it looks like youre doing a pretty good job of showing what its like 2 b u. not everyone can, so youre contributing to the mouses database splendidly! now please put down your towel and get back 2 being u, or a nu u, or something different that youll find interesting enuf 2 keep u going & take us w/ u.
