So here I am a longtime user of Live Journal (and a user of Dreamwidth since some of the hassles at LJ threatened to derail it as a platform for keeping in touch) opening a Word press account.


Why not?

I use social media platofrms (facebook, twitter, livejournal, dreamwidth, zurker, youtube to keep in touch with friends, spend spare time learning things, or listening to music and watching old tv shows or better yet vid clips from conventions and fans.

I also use some of them to keep up to date with news & politics and to keep a watchful eye on those who would oppress us (aka the politicians who believe the rich deserve more of their time and our money than the electorate).

But mostly I opened this to be able to comment on WordPress blogs without having to play silly beggars.
