Farewell, LJ!


After 15 years and 1,914 entries, I am leaving LiveJournal.

The company, which was purchased by a Russian firm several years ago, recently changed its terms of service. The new rules prohibit users from posting “political solicitation materials” and anything “contradictory to the laws of the Russian Federation.” I also don’t approve of the idea that my writings can be used and/or sold at the company’s discretion without compensation.

So, as of this weekend, I’m deleting my account. It’s been a good ride, LiveJournal. Time to bid you farewell.

Oh, and thanks for the husband.


  1. I hadn’t looked into the new terms of service. I think I need to export my content and bail out as well. It’s a shame- I’ve had a permanent account there since 2003.
