I'm here, no surprise, I just hate to feel left out of things. I have no idea what I'm going to do here yet, if it's going to be a supplement to LJ posts, which have been sparse as of late, or if I'm going to use it for stuff I no longer feel like posting there. Part of me thinks "Fuck it, just drop LJ and start fresh here," but I'm not sure I want to do that. I've dedicated nearly eight years of writing there, and I'd miss the audience I've developed over those years. I'm not confident enough to believe that they'd all follow me here.

More than anything else, I just want to stake my claim, not that anyone is looking to use my name in the first place. I'll keep an eye on things around here for a little while, see how it goes, see who really does jump ship from the S.S. ElJay completely. I don't think anyone will, really, not completely at least. We shall see. I will say, they have done a pretty good job of emulating the old LJ, without the ads and lame writer's block questions and all that shit. If this becomes more of a refuge for those who feel pushed out by the trolls and fanfic freaks, I'd be totally down with that.
