The Unpopular One  
Well, I know I am in the minority, but I am going to post a little bit on my stance with Dreamwidth.

I have nothing against the venture and I think it's pretty cool. I heard it has some awesome features. However, I really like my LJ account so I'm not moving over. I don't really want a duplicate account because I'll lose track of things. The only way I could ever see myself moving over to Dreamwidth is if LJ has a complete shutdown. But I'll cross that bridge when I get there. If and when that happens, I might have moved on anyway. I continue to push for professional writing status, and I want to post more and more on that blog. In the future, I know it'll be hard for me to keep up my professional blog and have a extremely active fannish one going. I never plan on abandoning my fannish side so I guess we'll see. I just plan to worry about that when the time comes.

I know that many people on my flist have moved over there, some of which don't post on LJ itself anymore. I wish you luck and I hope we can talk again some day. Other continue to post to both. And I know people have backups over there.

Whatever happens, whether we keep in touch or you move on, it's been lovely knowing you :)

*clings* I'm with you, not following the hype.

I also don't have a dreamwidth account and I won't have one unless LJ has a complete shutdown. I don't feel like updating another journal and I don't see a reason for moving.

I hope my friends stay at lj and won't leave it completely.

I'm the same, I just don't have time to start up another journal

Eh, I made an account over there and haven't been back since so I have no idea if I'll end up using it that much. I can't see myself posting to both at this point.

Like you I think I'll utilize dreamwidth if LJ completely crashes on us (although I desperately hope it doesn't!).

I have an account there, but I will always be a LJ fanatic and I love my friends here, so I am with you on the fact that I probably won't move over there unless something happens with LJ.

It's difficult enough for me to get on LJ. Yeah, LJ would have to completely shut down for me to leave. I think many people on my flist are cross-posting. I'm glad that they're doing that.

I'm with you mate! I like LJ!

First InsaneJournal now Dreamwidth. It seems like every year there's something new. So, no I'm not going until it shuts down (which also has been predicted numerous times).

Is Dreamwidth like LJ? LOL I thought it was like a web hosting company like dreamhost. D'oh!

I've seen people leave LJ for other services, but I've always stuck with LJ. It seems there's more people on LJ, no matter how many leave.

I have been away for a while... so I'm not completely in the loop as to why this Dremwidth is so popular with the kids...

I feel the same way about it. I personally can't understand all the fuss over it, but that's just me. I've heard lots of people like it, and that's fine. I'd be sad to lose people on my flist here, but I'm not moving over there either. For pretty much the same reasons as you.

I'm happy with LJ at the moment. I don't have any reason to go somewhere else. And having two accounts is just too overwhelming to me.

I've created an account at DW and I'm crossposting there but I definitely have no plans to leave LJ. It's still my main account for sure. :D
