Perhaps some of you have heard the rumblings about the changes being made at Live Journal, including the move of headquarters to Russia. There are a few whispers going 'round that the site may be in for some turbulent times, including hacking or invasions of privacy. For several years we have maintained an account on Dreamwidth, a similar journaling site that has served as a back up of sorts whenever LJ has had issues, which at one point we thought might be very serious.
I have been updating communities on Dreamwidth, transferring all of our posts and comments to that version of our lives here on LJ. You can access Section 7 by going HERE
I will continue to transfer from other comms we have here on LJ: mfu_map_room
Dreamwidth isn't an exact duplicate of LJ, the environment is different but the concept is intact and the methods of posting and viewing basically the same. If you don't already have an account there, I am going to suggest that you consider opening one. It's a back up, but in times past it has been a necessary one, and may be again if things go wonky. According to their recent newsletter they have experienced a surge of new accounts, many of them Russian in origin. You can read the newsletter HERE
I post there as girlintheglen
and ironically my last post there was about a hitch on LJ. LIke I said, we've used it as a back up plan in the past.
You can post questions here in the comments or PM me here at LJ. We'll probably be addressing this periodically.
