Dreamwidth

OK, so I opened an account with Dreamwidth, even though I have no clue why, or what I'm doing.  Obviously I am sheep!  LOL  I chose the option to crosspost my journal here to there, but I have no clue what that means at all.

So, I'm pretty confused by the whole thing.  If someone is knowledgeable on this whole thing, and wouldn't mind taking the time to help me figure it out, I'd be most grateful :)

BTW, my account there is exactly the same name and stuff.  I don't know how to find any of you, so I hope you'll find me. :)

So what's the deal with everyone joining this thing? Are they abandoning the lj ship for Dreamwidth? I don't really see the point of having 2 journals in 2 different places, but that's just me...

I guess I also feel a little left out, like everyone found this cool new place to hang out and didn't bother to tell me. Especially since you need an "invite code" to join if you don't want pay. I know, I'm way too sensitive...

I don't think people are abandoing lj. I think, unless I'm totally off-base, this new journal offers some editorial freedoms that lj cracked down, and so people are exploring it.

And so far you aren't missing anything. I think people are just checking the whole thing out. I don't even know how far I'll go with it, but I wanted to see whats what. I'm nosey that way. :)

I only joined to reserve my name over there, and just in case anyone I love abandons LJ altogether for DW. But if you want to sign up, I have a couple of extra invite codes. Just let me know if you want one of them.

Dreamwidth seems to be a site very similar to live journal, but with more content freedom. I don't think anyone is leaving here for there, just setting up dual journals. There's a setting over there where anything you post there will also post here, which is a nice feature. But it doesn't seem to work the other way.

I don't even know if I need to have one, but all the cool kids were doing it, LOL And I desperately needed a distraction yesterday.

Its a site very much like live journal, but with less content restrictions. Or, at least I think thats what it is. I don't think anyone is leaving here for there.
