After more than 5 years of being on LiveJournal, I have finally come to bid adieu. I haven't blogged in more than a month (almost two actually), mostly because I've been busy (trufax) with school, and with the new year rolling in, I had been contemplating on moving blogs this 2012, so I held back on making any more posts here for the new year. Also, because whenever I looked at my blog (aesthetic issues) I just lost all drive to make any posts.
I've actually been toying with the idea of moving blogs for a while now. I was really reluctant to switch blogs, 'cause I get really attached to things and have issues with letting go. Srsly, my shift from Plurk to Twitter? That took ages! And I made such a big deal out of it! And I haven't even really moved out of the former anyway, since Twitter acts as an open chatroom for my blockmates and I more than anything, while Plurk remains to be the true microblog.
So I'm probably being really overdramatic about this, but LJ has been my blogging home for years! FIVE YEARS! When I moved here I had originally come from Xanga (thank gods my account got shut down for some reason -- the shame that blog contains!) after a really messy fall out with some people. LJ witnessed my growth/ups and downs/achievement and dramu in high school, as well as my transition from high school to college. And everything in between.
This move was first initiated by the fact that I couldn't find any personalized layouts that could be modified and that could accomodate my large images. And then I thought, if something that simple made me stop blogging here, then maybe it's time to move!
I think 5 years is a pretty solid blog life. I know some people who constantly move blogs and just can't stay put with one. Go figure. I asked around for blog choices; most people suggested Tumblr, then Blogspot. One suggested Wordpress. I tried Wordpress before and didn't really like it, and I don't really like Tumblr as a blog. So yes, I went with Blogspot. I'd like to think it's the 'greener pasture' LOLJK
I'm not shutting this down though -- I could never do that! I'm leaving it open because, like I said, it has recorded so much of my life. I love you and I'll miss you LJ! Thank you for being my blogging home all these years. It's been a good run. *blogging tears*
