Well, its been a while.

I've been neglecting my LJ. For those that read this, I'm sorry.

I've been using twitter a lot these last few months, so I guess you could say I've jumped on the bandwagon. I don't like just posting my tweet stream on here as it just seems even more lazy than tapping out something original.

To me, twitter is better supported on mobile devices. It is more than just being able to post from my phone. Being able to take a photo and post it is stupidly easy.

Compare this to LJ. If I wanted to write a post and include a photo, I'd have to open a browser, upload it to a service (flickr/lj scrapbook/whatever), get the url, compose some html code and type it all up.

I know LJ really wasn't meant for on the fly, mobile posts (whereas twitter is). It has been a while since I looked at some clients and the web interface.

I would like to think LJ Scrapbooks ease of use and client range has been improved since I last used it. Not holding my breath. Last I checked the web interface was still the best way and that was still prone to the odd bug or two.

My habits have changed, there is no doubt about that. I would like to post more media on here, I'd just like to have a client that works and is easier to use than lj2me or the web interface.

Everything else in my life is great at the moment. Maybe more later when I have time to add some media?

that's why I don't have a twitter, because my phone is super basic and doesn't have internet

I only just noticed it the other day. I'll sign up and have a play with it. I just downloaded the linux client for LJ (again) and there is a java app for uploading pictures which looks good - but whether Scrapbook can handle it is another thing entirely. Also, I've still got something like 13gb of space on LJ/scrapbook so I would like to utilise it. But it probably won't work out :/

I like it already. I haven't even posted anything yet. Although the majority of the themes eerily reminds me of the Hungry Beast graphics.
