So, there is weird stuff going on with Livejournal. More details at the linked post, but the short summary is a) the Livejournal servers are now located in Russia b) the Russian government now has access to everything posted on Livejournal, including friendslocked and private posts and c) there are unconfirmed rumors of Russian-language accounts and posts being purged.

Given this, it seemed prudent to log in to my long-dormant Dreamwidth account and import my Livejournal. For now, until the situation is clearer, I'm going to be posting on Dreamwidth and having the posts cross-post to Livejournal. I don't intend to jump ship on Livejournal right away - I'll still be reading and responding to comments posted there - but it seems prudent to have a backup against the possibility that Livejournal will become unusable or become a platform that I no longer want to use.

If you're reading this and you're also on Dreamwidth, feel free to find me over at https://wshaffer.dreamwidth.org.
