For the last couple of years, entries to this blog have crossposted to a few different places. They automatically appear on Xanga and Livejournal, and I also have a blurb go up at MySpace when I publish something. Facebook picks up my posts through an RSS feed, but that’s not really crossposting and so isn’t addressed here.
I’ve decided to stop crossposting entries to Xanga, Livejournal, and MySpace. There are a few different reasons for this, but what it really boils down to is that
- It’s buggy and slows my site down, sometimes breaking things entirely, and
- I don’t think many people subscribe or read my blog through those sites.
If you do and would like to continue reading, there are a few options. I recommend foremost that you subscribe to the RSS feed. You can do this through any RSS reader, though I particularly recommend Google Reader myself. Some people use Netvibes, and that’s cool too I guess. There are a few others out there, so whatever floats your boat, just subscribe.
You can also visit the site directly. I usually update daily, Monday through Friday, though the time isn’t set.
If you can give me a compelling reason to keep crossposting, I’ll do it, but I don’t think there is one. Therefore, this will be the last post that shows up on Xanga, MySpace, or Livejournal.
Livejournal, and then Xanga, were my first blogging sites, but I can’t say that I’m sad to leave them behind forever. Adieu, adieu, adieu.
