I've had a DreamWidth account for quite a while (well... a few months) but never actually made a post. I recall thinking that it would be nice to have so I could follow a couple people who had accounts here but no Livejournal, and then... mostly forgot about it. There are a few proposed (and apparently imminent) changes to LJ that do not please me... the endless-scrolling "feed" replacing the friends' page is a major one. That particular 'feature' of infinite loading/scrolling is what makes Facebook and Tumblr all but unusable for me... my poor abused laptop overheats and shuts itself down with little provocation, and that's plenty to make it happen. If LJ starts doing the same thing, that's going to definitely bother me a whole lot.
I'm terrible at keeping a regular posting schedule. I hardly seem to use LJ, and when I have in the last few months, it's been to give links to posts I've written elsewhere. I want to write more... I just either have enough to do that I don't have time, or have time but nothing I feel is worth writing about. :P But I can always keep trying, yes?
AND. DW also has a handy crossposting feature! So even if LJ is being a buttface for me, I can still post there!
And that's part of why I'm making this post. To make sure the crossposting works, and so I can have an entry in my DW journal so I can test out some layouts and such.
Also: I know pretty much no one on Dreamwidth. Anybody else have an account? If so, I'd very much like it if you'd friend me! :D My username t/here is mistressofmuses. For the lazy, here's the link directly to my journal: http://mistressofmuses.dreamwidth.org/
If you aren't familiar with Dreamwidth, it's basically identical to more old-school Livejournal. There are a few differences, but not a ton. So um... yup. I'm not leaving LJ entirely, or anything; I'll still read friends' entries on LJ, and the crossposting means I'll still post there, too. I just feel like this site may be a much smoother experience for me.
