I'm throwing in the towel on my online journal at http://littleowl.com/thursday
. I only ever really post here anyway because of the ease use involved with the security settings and when I do want to lock something, most of the people I want to lock it to are here. Oddly enough it's the advent of Holidailies
that has spurred this decision. When I went to register, I had to decide which site to put down in the box and given how things have been lately I just went 'frak it' and put my LJ in there instead of my site.
I'll need to do some archiving type activity over yonder, but basically, that journal is closed. I kept it up for ten years, though the spurts of writing over there have been largely limited to Holidailies posting and random entries for a while. Overall, I'm cutting back and consolidating on my online presence. I'll probably be dropping some domain names this year and one of my hosting accounts. The amount of bandwidth and space that Verve gives me as a long-term customer is totally insane, so I'm not going to drop them, and I'll keep littleowl.com because I'm too invested in that domain name. Anyone hosting with me, don't worry, not going anywhere, it just seems silly to me to pretend like I'm still journaling over there, when the truth of the matter is, that all my journaling happens here.
At any rate, all set up for Holidalies, including a slapdash LJ icon. And with that, it's back to working on some stuff and taking care of the family as the scarlet fever starts to turn tail and run.
