Unsurprisingly, the news that LiveJournal has been sold to a Russian media conglomerate has startled a lot of people.

Some of those are my friends, and some of those friends are planning to move their blogs from LiveJournal.

Now, I've never given LiveJournal a dime in my life. All I have ever had is a basic account, and I don't see that changing. That's because I didn't get into LiveJournal because I wanted to write for the Internet--I'd set up elsewhere if I wanted that. I joined LiveJournal because a number of my friends had LiveJournal accounts, and it gave me an opportunity to let them know how I am, and keep tabs on what's new with them, all in one convenient place.

But even before Six Apart sold LJ, that was changing. Now [livejournal.com profile] landley is using his development log as a blog, [livejournal.com profile] fadethecat is moving her blog to her own site, and other friends of mine are thinking of boycotting SUP, for various reasons.

This wouldn't affect my blogging, per se. But it will make it more challenging to keep up with my friends. And once that happens....maybe I should move too.

That's more work than I want to think about doing over Christmastime. Arrrgh.
