Yeah, the one thing LJ was good for was the protected post thing, and comment threading. But even a protected post could become a social/professional suicide unless you restrict it to only the most truly trusted people - probably a small enough number that you could chat with them in person or on the phone individually, but possibly a large enough number that they might not all be on or regularly reading a specific service like LJ. It'll be cool in The Future when they get a big federated identity system actually functioning, and like my RSS reader can pass creds that are linked to my LJ creds and I can see protected posts in it.

I think in the near run I want to just dispense with that tenuous illusory security 'filtering' ground and teach myself to do the long personal post kinda things in public on a non-LJ 'blog' that's very specifically set up as a personal journal, as opposed to "Angyl's Awesome Blog Of Doom" which would have things of general and professional interest written for that audience. I read several blogs done in that attitude and I think it could work for me. Later this summer I just want to play around with different blogging and *casting approaches and see if something delivers the satisfaction that LJing used to.

Wow, so much simplicity, it burns! I've heard wordpress is magically not hard to upgrade anymore tho, so I might give that a whirl
