Um. You did WHAT?

LiveJournal has apparently done away with free basic accounts. Now if you want to create a free account, you have to have advertising.

I am soooo not down with that anymore. It’s kind of like, the “line” beyond which I can’t really go, in all countenance. Not even discussing the non-handling of the situation (which is, really, part and parcel with LJ history). It’s also not a viable strategy.

So, anyway. My question for all my LJ friends is this:

If I leave LiveJournal and close my account, will you still love me and follow my blog over on

For those of you with Friends-only journals (or half-and-half FO and non), how much of your life will I miss?

Because right now, the only reason I still have an LJ is to keep up with friends I’ve made over there and read the Friends-only posts there. But really, if most of my friends have branched out and are willing to read my blog away from LJ (via RSS, the blog page, or by email– all three are available), I’ll do that.

Also, if anyone wants/needs an ad-free blog and wants some help/advice setting it up, feel free to ping me. There are other options.
