I've started my own blog apart from Livejournal. I've had a Livejournal since 2000. I obviously haven't been keeping it up to date recently but even so eleven years is a long time. Though I don't use this enough any more to justify paying for it and I'm not a fan of what I'd be getting for a free account.
I'm still going to keep the account to read everybody else's posts who still make them here so don't worry! I've never been a super commenter but I'm still reading everything. I'm hoping that having a blog on my own domain won't be too much out of the way for people to keep up with, but if it is then that's what RSS feeds are for. :)
Anyway if you want to keep up with it then head over to Sparkover @ Binaryreflections.com.
