- Could someone please explain to me what's happening with LJ, or point me to someone who lays it out simply? I read the update and it sounds a little dodgy, but I don't quite get it. Looks like people are abandoning ship. I was already thinking of letting my paid account expire in September, and just focus on DreamWidth.

- I'm hiking for a cause on Earth Day (April 22nd)! I'm hiking to raise money for the Sierra Club. If you would like to sponsor me and/or share my page on social media, please do so! I would be very grateful.

- I haven't written anything since the end of December. Part of me is frustrated, part of me ... just doesn't care. I have an outline for a story I want to write about Leia, which is also kind of a tribute to Carrie Fisher, but it's ambitious and so far it's not coming together. I wonder if it would be easier if I felt more a part of the fandom, but there doesn't seem to be a whole lot of fandom enthusiasm on LJ or DW these days, and I've broken up with Tumblr. *shrug* If I'm going to get it done, I'd like it to be before the next movie comes out and josses everything.

Here is a link that provides a partial translation of the new TOS and why it might be a problem for people and here are two good (and probably somewhat redundant) link roundups on the situation: and here:

I feel like LJ will implode and it's just a matter of time. I am not going to post on there any more but I am trying to save my entire journal (other than just migrating them here) before deleting it. Unfortunately, not that many of my friends have moved over here yet, so I am also still going there to read entries. That contract we had to sign on there the other day was pretty sketchy. There's an English translation but it's not official, and the official agreement is only in Russian? great.
