Sometimes you write a post, and the words are like a huge echo. You have no idea where the words travel, who hears their tone, or in what country the human reading them is located. So, this post is just a short test to check blog traffic, and see who is still visiting LJ during the long holiday in Russia.

I can't imagine having so many days off in a row, as it is unheard of in the USA unless you are taking personal vacation. The country simply would not shut down for two weeks. I was off for too many days the past month because my office was empty, with no work to do. I almost went insane from idleness, but got to see some films in the cinema - the children's movie "Sing," "Passengers", and a very good and touching movie called "Manchester by the Sea." Plus, tons of old films on Netflix. :)

Who is here? :) Also, how many of you have heard of Dreamwidth.org? This is another blogging platform, with an interface similar to LJ. I am thinking about cross-posting there, as there is a mix of both Russian and English language blogs, in an effort to draw new readers and commentators to the blog. I want to continue to publish posts about my journey to the tiny gem called Georgia, but only if there are people to view the words and photos, to absorb the stories, and somehow find meaning, pleasure, or even aggravation in them.

Happy New Year dear readers! I hope 2017 is a good one...

Great! Many readers recently told me about Dreamwidth. The interface is compatible with LJ, and it seems there are a lot of overlapping readers from LJ and this platform. The advantage for me is that there are also a lot of English language blogs there, and my audience here on LJ is composed entirely of native Russian speakers. I love them, but diversity in opinion and thought is always welcome here! Plus, people will not yell at me for writing in my native language. :))

Hi darling ! I still oldtimer and read LJ but when I home ! It's not so comfortably to read blogs posts via smartphone screen . So please continue to announce about your posts in FB !

The technology on this platform really sucks and is shameful, as Russia is full of talented programmers and tech folks. Or, perhaps they have all come to the USA or Europe to work. :)) Every Russian person I know in the U.S. works in this field. I really hate the mobile version of LJ, and the fact that you cannot easily insert pics or .jpgs into comments, without using HTML language, or storing photos on a third-party site. I will continue to cross-post links on FB, and I write there much more frequently now than in the blog.

but we don't have the holidays.
dreamwidth is not very popular here

P/S
we're surprised with western "Christmas week" too. Nobody is working for 1.5 weeks, nothing is happenning...

From: [identity profile] peacetraveler22.livejournal.com
That's right! Many people take personal vacation days during the last few weeks of the year, and this year our holidays like Christmas and New Year's fell on a weekend. This was good, as it gave most people four day weekends, on two consecutive weeks. I have mostly European clients, and it seems the entire continent shuts down from December - January and August - September. :) Absolutely no email communications, orders for new work - just silence. :)

Many (most of?) people don't read blogs directly on the platform, but use RSS/Atom readers instead. And for those people it really doesn't matter which platform do you use - they read your posts in their lovely RSS aggregator/reader.
Significant amount of authors I read moved to Dreamwidth from LJ after the latter moved its servers to Russia.
Bottom word: seems you're free of choosing Dreamwidth or any other platform you feel comfortable with, and it won't make any issues to your readers in case if you flagged that you moved to the new address.
But keep posting - I'm one of your silent readers ;)

From: [identity profile] pinkjackal.livejournal.com
...and again, it is usually possible to make 'cross-posts' from new platform to the old one - for those conservative people who don't want to read you on the new address.

Yes, I've heard of medium.com, but it appears there are mostly English language writers there. I want something more "multi-cultural," as I like to communicate with people from far away, foreign lands with a lot of non-Western type of thinking, stories and users. Helps expand the mind. :))

Hi -- I'm still around (but fortunately I'm not in Russia. Or, to word it differently, I'm STILL around BECAUSE I'm not in Russia... and in my case there's a greater truth in this statement.) Like many others, I have just duplicated my LJ account on Dreamwidth. Just got a letter from them saying they have some 100,000 new members from RU and UA -- thanks to the KGB. There's one glitch though: I couldn't figure out a way to have it automatically duplicate there any my new entries in LJ. Any setting I missed? I could only do it manually, i.e. after posting to LJ go over to Dreamwidth and play around there...
Anyway, happy New Year! (Your post sort of implies you only do your blogging while in the office... Good work! Same here.)

I haven't even attempted to navigate Dreamwidth, as I only heard of it last week when a reader told me about it. However, it's good to know there is a huge influx of users there, and it motivates me to cross-post on the platform. I usually write travel posts at home, but short posts like this can easily be composed at work. And, of course, I like to communicate with readers in real time, so I'm often responding to comments during work hours due to the nine hour time difference between me and most readers. Plus, my work is very, very slow now. So, I have idle time while sitting at my desk...:)
