Going to try crossposting for a while  
What it says on the tin.

Basically, I'm going to test out how feasible it is to upkeep two journals at once. Dreamwidth had made it so that crossposting can happen, but due to the different user levels (permanent account on IJ, free on DW), there's going to be little things, like trying to figure out the tagging system, meta data, which will need to be edited manually on IJ once I've finished posting. But I can't imagine it being that much more work. Oh sure, importing once IJ goes down (I feel like IJ might crash way before DW) will be a pain, but at least stuff from now will be immortalized. Not that I have anything to immortalize or...

You know what? Whatever. Just testing it out and seeing how this feels. Besides, we all know I totally need to procrastinate or whatever, right? :D

*fails at life*

Oh, and for those who are still reading my IJ, again, because of crossposting, no need to switch over to DW from IJ unless IJ completely dies.

Eh, if I have to switch, so be it. Not a big deal.

Well it will be a while yet, since it looks like with the invite code system spammers will be kept in check and IJ will continue to function. :D

No idea how long it will hold, but we'll see.

Unfortunately the free account on DW only comes with 15 images... Ah well.

Well, what did you expect? Free LJ only offers three (six if you upgrade to "plus" which is ads splattered all over the journal). It's already more than what LJ offers considering that DW has an active community that's constantly fixing up codes and stuff.

IJ's mostly funded by ad support and therefore lots of RPers. Different strokes for different folks and all that. :p

Oh joy of crossposting made easy. :D

It looks like IJ has stabilized with the implementation of invite codes, so we're good for some time yet.
