A little over a year ago, I set up this blog, Rich Text, on WordPress on my own domain, and since I had a permanent LiveJournal account (thanks, Rah!) that I didn’t want to leave to rot, I set up crossposting. That made sense at the time, because people could read one place or the other, and all the comments went to one place, and so on.
At the time, I never posted friends-only to my LiveJournal, because I was “blogging”, not “journaling”, and because my parents and coworkers weren’t the type to find either, and because I didn’t feel like I had a whole lot personal to say. But these days I’m finding more and more that there’s stuff I’d like to write about to people who are close to me, and not necessarily the whole Internet.
So I’ve turned off crossposting, and both my LJ and blog posts will have comments turned on in each place.
And I want you to keep reading! Here’s how:
If you’re reading this on LiveJournal, please add richtext to your friends list, so you can see both my Rich Text blog posts and my mendel posts. (You might also like richtextcomment which is a feed of comments to Rich Text.)
If you’re reading this from Rich Text or via RSS, you might want to read and/or syndicate my LiveJournal too. But you won’t see my protected posts that way, so you might want to read me on a LiveJournal friends list instead.
(And I’m looking forward to diving back in to LiveJournal-style LiveJournaling, too — I’m sorry I’ve been so quiet on the comments for the last little while, but reading LiveJournal friends via RSS did lose something in translantion, and I’m back to reading on a friends list again for my LJ peepz.)
