the followup to my previous ping

I am blowing off work today, and so, I will finish this post about my internet presence.

Much as I hate to contribute to the third (or fourth, or whatevereth) LJ diaspora, the fact is, I've been having trouble writing here for over a year. I've tapered down to the point where I can no longer easily slide into writing. When I tried to do what I used to, it was so jarring that it seemed like a real physical sensation.

I'd started and then deleted enough drafts here that I started thinking a change of venue might be helpful, so when a friend suggested setting up a Wordpress blog, I did it. This was JUST before the DDOS attacks started happening here, which did immediately prevent me from starting out by crossposting. Now I have some posts over there, and I need to make that crossposting decisions and some others, too.

This LJ account is permanent, and I have no intention of deleting it. I may revamp the way I use it, though. The first thing I will do is let it sit for a while until the taste of all those failed attempts to post subsides.

So, in the meantime, there are questions. As threatened, I am attempting to post a poll for the first time ever!
