So, has anyone linked their DW account with their main/Wordpress/website blog?

I'm on the deck now, having just breakfasted. First load of laundry is in the washer, with another in queue. Dinner is soon to be prepped for later baking--meatloaf, which isn't exactly a hot weather dinner but oh well. Made a 7-grain pilaf/roasted veggie salad y'day for a side dish. Meals for the week.

Made roasted veggie hummus y'day as well. Red pepper. Zucchini. Carrots. Sauted the garlic to take the bitter edge off. Oh my, this is a keeper.

I wanted to go see HP7.2 today, but no go. Too much to do. Early start required at the day job tomorrow, so can't stay up late, either. Once again, Sunday will go too quickly.

The latest LJ DDoS issue has convinced me that it's time to give WordPress a try. The great tech support that is SFFNET has already installed it on my site, and soon Miz Ruta and I will be adjusting some theme or other to suit. I spent part of last night going through said themes--the one I loved was only offered on WP itself, drat it--and settled on 4. I think I know which is the winner but won't know for sure until we try colors on it.

This will mean a redesign of the website, which will be slight or stripped down to the joists depending. I will likely keep the Mists by The Gates photo because I love it, but colors and the books pages etc may change. It was time, I guess. Clean-Out 2011 continues.

I think I'm enjoying Ebert more as a blogger than I did as a film critic.

What we can't seem to accept is that the oil is leaking and we can't stop it. This doesn't fit the modern narrative in which we can fix anything if we get organized and throw enough money at it.

Here's another fine mess - Roger Ebert's Journal

But instead of working, I was reading this.

So now I have to get rid of my old camera and it still totally works so I thought I'd put it on ebay.  It's a Canon EOS digital rebel with a zoom lens (18-55 mm) and it works great as long as you duct-tape the battery door and then push the battery door really hard with your thumb so that the battery makes contact with whatever the battery needs to make contact with.  It takes practice but it's a good workout for your hands.  Plus, no one else can use your camera because only you know the trick of how to make it work.  Also, there's toilet paper taped to the flash because it's like a home-made diffuser.  You can take it off but I wouldn't because it's awesome and also it's double-ply so yeah, it's pretty f-ing luxurious.

I forgot to post the title of the sale page.

Ladies and Gentlemen, The Bloggess.

Thanks to David Niall Wilson over on Facebook for the new timesink. This woman has to have an LJ feed. She has to.

How much do DW seed accounts usually cost? I received emails about sales, but the numbers thing seemed to have slipped past folks.

I set up DW to import my LJ. Do I need to do that every day, or will the importing go on automatically?

Is mirroring the same as importing?

I know DW has a FAQ. I figure I will get an answer more quickly here.

I am mirroring/importing my LJ to Dreamwidth, and I sincerely hope that I did not dump several years of old posts into all my DW Friends' lists. If I have, I am so sorry.

I now have a Dreamwidth account under ksmith. I can't upload photos or pictures for icons for some reason, but I don't have time to worry about that now.

Will you folks who are getting Dreamwidth accounts be leaving LJ?

Update: I think I'll wait and see what other folks do, and whether Dreamwidth offers an improvement over LJ. I like LJ, and I'm pretty comfy here. And truth be told, I am considering going the Wordpress route and having my official blog installed within my website. But one step away is still one step away. I'll probably go where most folks go, just because that's where all the joyful noise will be.
