So, on the front page of LiveJournal, the staff posted this article from Fast Company about the changes LJ is making to draw in more users. This quote is a real gem:

LiveJournal's leadership has made it clear that their future American business strategy lies in generating new traffic rather than catering to the service's current small-but-loyal membership. The challenge for Petrochenko and other executives at LiveJournal will be redefining the brand's identity in a crowded media marketplace.

Charming. I'd say don't change, but LJ needs it. Badly.

Crossposting this over to Tumblr, where I've been spending a lot of time the past few months enjoying fandoms.

And because Dreamwidth is being really nice by dropping their invite code-only policy for the moment, I've decided to check this site out. I'm also planning on importing [livejournal.com profile] rfmadison and the few entries I have from there. I suspect that'll take less time than the entries over at [livejournal.com profile] amimichiru.

We'll see how this goes for now. But first, sleep.

Edit: Maybe it's because I'm using Chrome or because I normally use Semagic for my posts, but did LJ's post format change, too? So weird.

Edit #2: Apparently LiveJournal now allows all users to edit their comments? On the one hand, I've wanted that feature for awhile and now I don't need to pay to get it, which is nice. On the other hand, I still miss the "preview" button. Hmm...
