No more Livejournal

Posted on Wednesday, May 14, 2014 in My life

Last year, Yahoo bought Tumblr so I had to leave and delete my Tumblr. I really loved that photo blog. :/ And now it’s happening again. This time it’s Livejournal. I don’t trust them anymore. (Because of reasons!) What’s really sad is that I’ve had a Livejournal for almost 14 years. It really is the end of an era. 🙁

Fortunately, I have another journal on Dreamwidth. The software and interface are both great and I love the themes, but unfortunately I hardly have any friends and there are far fewer communities. Perhaps now that many people are leaving LJ, the existing communities will become more lively and hopefully some of the ones from LJ will move to DW. I’ll keep my fingers crossed.

Marry, Date or Dump: Hamlet, Meme

Posted on Monday, July 22, 2013 in Fandom, Humanities, Other

Since I found this “Tumblr-ish” meme on WordPress, I decided to do it here. Who would you marry, dump or date in Hamlet – Horatio, Laertes or Hamlet?

Hamlet, John Barrymore

I’d marry Horatio, date Laertes and dump Hamlet.

My Tumblr move

Posted on Thursday, July 4, 2013 in My life

It’s been a while since I had to leave Tumblr so I suppose it’s time to evaluate the move.

A little background info for those who missed the drama:

When I found out that Yahoo was buying Tumblr, I immediately turned to my old friend WordPress. And fortunately, WordPress was up to the challenge of transferring all my posts from Tumblr. In the end, I chose to only keep using my own photos, not all the cute and funny and informative reblogs I’d accumulated over the years. Instead, I started two new blogs to post all the interesting new articles and other pages I find on the internet.

I still miss the wonderful Tumblr community, but not surprisingly, since I’ve been using WordPress longer than Tumblr, I feel right at home here. The blog platform is just as good, if not better than Tumblr’s, but the community components, if I can refer to them that way, are a little more limited – there’s Like and Reblog, but not much more. Well, there’s also a very nice profile page, that I might start working on a bit more. What I really miss is the people, though I am beginning to make new friends on

Now I only hope that my Tumblr user info wasn’t handed over to Yahoo when they took over. I left in a hurry to avoid that, but I suppose I’ll never know.

Missing Tumblr

Posted on Friday, May 24, 2013 in My life, Whining

I’m already missing Tumblr, even though I’ve just left. Although I’ve been a little fed up with all the reblogs, I do miss seeing all those fanpics on my dashboard. Where will I get my fandom fix now? Don’t get me wrong, I really enjoy the fic recs I get on Livejournal, but I need photos too. WordPress doesn’t have them. Soup doesn’t either, but it should. It’s just as easy to share images and videos on Soup as it is on Tumblr. In fact, it’s easy on WordPress too, but I realize that isn’t the best place to look for copyrighted images.

Another thing I miss are the wonderful book blogs with book quotes and cartoons about books and reading.

Finally, I miss the food porn. All those yummy vegan dishes. Can I just have that on Soup?

Why, oh why, did Yahoo have to buy Tumblr? Of course, this misery is the perfect distraction from life’s greater sorrows, so there’s that, I suppose. Alright, never mind. As long as I can have a few fanpics (come on, Livejournal and Dreamwidth, help me out here), some book-related images (thanks, Booklikes!) and just a little vegan food porn (WordPress, Livejournal, Bleat…?)
