I know there is like this..mass exodus to Dreamwidth but I'm not going. Yes..I did go and look and I just can't get the hang of the place. I don't like how it looks and every place I click that I think it will take me to one page ends up taking me to a completely different page and I end up going in circles. Its frustrating.
So I'm staying where I am. yes the new format is weird and it got rid of some of the stuff that is actually convenient for RPing and whatnot..but LJ has been my social network home since 2003. I really can't get used to any of these other social medias. Even twitter is hard and frustrating sometimes.
Facebook is okay for some things but when I want to post my personal thoughts and feelings..this is the place I want to do it. This is the journal I rely on for staying in touch with people. I don't want to have to shorten what I want to say. I don't want to have it posted for not only friends, but people I vaguely know from conventions, and even for my entire family to see. Lets face it..I've said things on here that my family doesn't even know about. They have no idea I went through all that emotional shit a few months back. And I like to keep it that way.
Does this mean I'll eventually phase out of RPing because everyone is moving to dreamwidth? Maybe. And..maybe I'm okay with that. I've used the new format and for what we do at Compound, I don't see any issues with it. It hasn't given me any problems yet. I know it could only be a matter of time..but whatever. If everyone wants to go elsewhere, then..fine. Go. Leave the old dog to her old tech. I'm fine here and I'll find others who are too if I really feel like putting that much effort into it.
I'm done paying for accounts and icons and all that shit. Because it seems like I'm the only that cares sometimes and I'm done putting effort in and being the only one. I've wasted enough money on this site. I'm not doing it at any others.
So everyone who is fleeing, have fun and enjoy your new shiny place. I'll be here in my rocking chair, letting the dust settle around me in my old busted home. I'm sure I'm not the only one.
