Live Journal and Its Fifty Percent Staff Reduction

Just fair warning. The fifty percent staff reduction at Live Journal I take as a bad sign. Of course, I write the majority of my work over here at Word Press, and it’s mirrored at Live Journal, but that said, there was a time before the writing journal that Live Journal was my mainstay for talking to the world.

With that in mind, then, I am going to move some of my old Live Journal writing over here in a kind of reprint effort. I have toyed with the idea of putting together a small collection of my journal essays into a non-fiction book (mostly for me, although I could make it available to others that might want it), but I can’t do that if I wake up one morning and all my essays are gone. So I’d best get rolling on that. I’ll try to offer some contextualization for you, the reader.

That said, most of what I have in my old journals is crap, and you don’t want to see it, and I don’t want to share it with you. So, this should be a manageable effort.

It’ll be too bad in the end. I have fond memories, but yup, the only permanent thing is change. And other cliches that I hope to get away with.

By the way, as you can tell, headache is biting the dust. I loves me some pain free evening!

  1. I sure didn’t! 🙂

    My assumption was that because Kizmet linked to it, it was current news, and in my headached state, well, there you go.

    Anyway, looks like things are still chugging along, so perhaps this is a non-issue. Of course, I should probably do this anyway.
