The Cup Skips Town! (For now, anyway.)

Posted: January 4, 2006 by Emma Bull in art

My allegiance is still somewhat divided–I prefer some things about Blogger, others about LiveJournal–but a Wicked Good Fairy gave me six months of paid Live Journal account for a holiday present. That’s tipped me off the fence.

So I’ll be posting mainly on LiveJournal for a while. If something seems particularly Blogger-specific, I’ll drop it here, but you can find me most dependably at Dark Roast.

    First they say they’re just visiting livejournal, maybe setting up on account so they can talk to a few friends … next think you know, lj is their home away from home. 🙂

    It’s all about the userpix, baby.

    Actually, it’s all about the comments format…until the comment count hits fifty. Then the compressed threads make me nuts. Oh, well.

    Yes, another blogger realizes that Livejournal kicks Blogger’s ass!

    The comments format over here drives me crazy, plus you can’t get e-mail notification of comments or replies.

    Now, you just need to turn your charming husband over to our way of thinking.

  4. Emma Bull says:

    Actually, the comments format on Blogger is fine for things that don’t require conversation between commenters. If all you want is to enable people to leave a comment on an essay you’ve posted, it works really well. It just doesn’t allow for the back-and-forth that LiveJournal users prefer. Two different cultures, is all, designed for two different kinds of interaction, each useful at different times.

    That’s why there are posts I think of as Blogger-appropriate, and others that are LJ-appropriate.

    Will’s going to explain about e-mail notification.

    Sarah, you can get notified of comments on Blogger. Under “settings” and “comments,” just fill in the “comment notification address.”
