Alliteration isn't helping, either.

Tags haven't been working on this blog for at least a couple of months, which is kind of a bummer. I had been using them more and more to refer back to my many entries, but now clicking on any tag just gives an error page. I finally wrote to LJ about it and they replied that it's because the S1 style I'm using is no longer supported. Looks like I will have to convert this thing to S2 in order to use them. I haven't messed with styles since college, but I suppose this is as good a reason as any to take the plunge.

In other blogging news, I can't quite believe it but I'm considering starting a third blog. In addition to two Twitter accounts, this one, and my Tumblr, I actually need a home for urbanism and planning-related posts. This is very much a personal blog, as is my Tumblr, so I'm seriously considering opening another blog. Who knows how much time I'll actually be able to put in to it, but I'm sorely tempted to give it a try. As for the rest of my online presence, I'm technically on Google Plus but haven't been on it for more than 60 seconds at a time. I'm not really sure what to do with it at this point. And I still read Facebook but don't post all that much in there.

EDIT: After a five-minute scare in which I thought I had deleted my entire journal, I successfully picked a new style pretty much at random. At last I've joined the S2 world, and my tags work again. But I don't quite like this style; photos don't fit in the center frame, and it doesn't display my title-subtitle format the way I want. I'll probably mess with it more over the weekend to try to find a style I like, so don't be surprised if it changes 44 times in the next few days.

I'm actually kind of enthusiastic about Google+, though I have no idea if it will survive long-term, or not. It'll never replace LJ for me, but I'd really like to see it replace Facebook, a place I've nearly given up on.

I'm willing to give Google+ a chance, but it's started out much differently from other social sites. Because there's so much buzz about it, it's pretty overwhelming for it to be so big from the first day I signed on.

Facebook is a behemoth now that I can't really manage, but it was relatively quiet and manageable for my first couple of years on there. But these days I don't post many updates because I have such a jumble of family/friends/co-workers/acquaintances that I'd have to spend way too much time toggling privacy settings in order to share most anything worthwhile.

Yeah, I feel pretty much the same way about FB ... I hardly ever post there anymore, partly for the same reasons, and I'm no longer a regular reader. And the noise-to-content ratio over there just keeps getting worse and worse.

I've read that FB's American user base has already started to decline, so it seems like it's not going to be the social network of the future. It'll be interesting to see whether or not G+ turns out to be the one ...

Yay LJ forever (or at least for a while)!
