I began this blog on LiveJournal about a decade ago [!], but switched to the DreamWidth platform in 2012 because I was enraged at LJ’s user-hostile developments. I spent some time at DW, but its clunky method of inserting photos into posts really put me off. I really sought an intuitive GUI like that of Blogspot, which hosts VTDL’s blog, but I wanted the control that comes from having a blog on one’s own server.
Powers of Creation has finally come to rest at the oddpla.net [“What’s a oddpla?” :p ] server, where most of my other Web sites live. Here I don’t pay extra for searchability, as I did with DW, and I can easily upload pictures to my entries.
I imported my journal from its mirror location on LJ, so my tags were all off. Thus all the months of painstaking tag curation that I did after transferring the journal to DW — all that has disappeared.Ugh!
I finally just deleted all ~600 tags from the import and decided to start afresh. I have decided to tag only sets of related entries not easily discovered by strategic use of search terms. That should greatly reduce the number of tags I have to populate.
Now that I think about it, I should probably bring the tacky trove, my Web site of 3d freebies, back to the oddpla.net server too…
