Spiff sent me the link to this article, which is both very simple---nothing new or unexpected here---but quite profound.

I have to say I agree with its central ideas wholeheartedly.

Reading it was fun.

Big change

I've been saying that I am going to leave LJ for the longest time.

I've been threatening to start a Dreamwidth journal forever.

Up to this point, I have conspicuously not done so.

I hate switching out big things and switching over from one place/thing/person I've invested in to another. It's deeply annoying to walk away from a big investment, which is probably why I dislike buying new cars so much. All that research, all that decision making, all that energy, and then you have to get used to an entirely new car. Drat!

However, since I had so much trouble with this regarding LJ, I simply asked someone else to help me do it.

If you don't have to sit there and remake the decision every second, it's much easier. It's tremendously easier to simply ask someone to do a big switch for you, so all you have to do, emotionally, is just stick by the decision you've made.

Thus I want to thank sleepymaggie for researching the options and backing up my LJ for me---all the way back to 2004---and then setting up a Dreamwidth account in my name.

I'm not leaving LJ in the sense that I'll still read it religiously and comment on my friend's posts. But I'll write from Dreamwidth now, since it automatically crossposts to LJ for me.

If you have a Dreamwidth account, you can add me there.

You are welcome to comment in either place.

Here's to big changes!

Hmmm, the universe does not want me to spend time with my co-author. Every time we plan an opportunity to get together, something intervenes: a death, a severe cold, a work responsibility, something. What is it about our collaboration that needs to be delayed?

I don't know, but that's life.

I guess I am supposed to get farther along in my chapter revisions or something---there's some reason I don't understand yet.
