coaldustcanary: (Life - ElJay)
[personal profile] coaldustcanary
I'm really torn about buying a permanent LJ account.

I'm very tempted because I've now been using ElJay for 5+ years, even as the Internets change and social networking becomes a very different animal. (If it is an animal, it's a chimera or something.) If I'd bought one years ago, it would have paid for itself already, of course, and somehow I don't see myself ever giving up on ElJay entirely.

But I just don't know. I mostly use LJ for three reasons:

1. My friends are all on it.
2. My fandoms are all on it.
3. It requires almost zero technical know-how on my part to make it go.

But will ElJay still be here in a few years in the same form? In many ways little has changed since I started using it, but I can't really count on that remaining true indefinitely.

They do come at awfully awkward times, don't they? :\

I'm having similar thoughts. As it is so close to Christmas though, I may just wait till the next one.

I remember when it was only $100 to get one; now it's $175. I'm sure it will be $200 next time. Bleh.

Is it really worth it? I mean, how much better is that to the free version of LJ?

Well, I've had a paid LJ for a long time at this point. I like the prettier styles, and the extra userpics, and my custom Doctor Who moodtheme, and some of the thread-expanding benefits on big threads. I pay $25 a year for this anyway - now I just need to decide if I'm going to be using LJ in 7 years. :P
