Different but the same  
I found today's xkcd amusing, not least because a couple days ago catbird was asking about alternatives to LJ, and when i asked her about it she pretty much said she wanted something that was like LJ, but wasn't LJ :)

Of course in the case of LJ that would be Dreamwidth, and speaking of that, i've still done almost nothing with my DW account. One of these days i ought to get around to importing all my posts over. And what's that tool i see people using for crossposting to LJ and DW at the same time?

But anyways, i ought to check out the Google+ thing at some point, but after the experience i had with Buzz and my Google Profile i'm rather suspicious of their promises about privacy. I've actually got a number of gmail/google accounts now because Google pissed me off so much, but even if i use one of the alternates, if all my friends use profiles with their real names and i link to them then it would be pretty trivial for people to figure out what's going on.

Importer: https://www.dreamwidth.org/tools/importer

Then there's an option on the "my account" settings to automatically crosspost to LJ from DW: http://www.dreamwidth.org/manage/settings/?cat=othersites

I started using DW mainly because of LJ staff commenting inappropriately on locked entries and then denying it, and keeping the staff member on. That's why you can't comment on my LJ entries.

But I want an alternative to LJ ~and~ DW. I have issues with both of them!
