I’ve recently quit Tweeting and shut down my LiveJournal as well. I pulled some of the longer pieces out of LJ (such as my 1989 Earthquake Journal) to archive here on my website. Twitter was fun but distracting–and, I mean, distracting a hundred times a day. LJ had pretty much ground to a halt for me. I’ve decided that I might as well consolidate whatever I do online and put it here, where I don’t automatically lose track of it. Although I guess if I ever want to read my old Tweets, I just have to visit the Library of Congress.
