So after my last post, which was an epic flounce from the world of self-hosted/Wordpress blogging, I’ve realized that there are benefits to using WordPress over LiveJournal: (1) Posts are easier to find [for me and readers] and (2) some posts are better suited for this platform (e.g., teaching posts).
So I’m back.
If you know me, you know I tend to suffer from all or nothing, black and white thinking, so it either had to be all LJ or all WordPress with nothing in between. Except, after some time away, I have figured out that it doesn’t have to either/or but can be both/and. All that means is LiveJournal for personal stuff and TV talk and more loosey-goosey book talk, WordPress for more formal book reviews, challenge sign ups, and any teaching talk.
Both/and. It can work.
On the plus side, I am now way less stressed out about blogging. And I have got to find a way to stop working out my internal strife in public.
