Joey Coleman: Remember LiveJournal? Anyone?

Remember LiveJournal? Anyone?

It was a big deal back in the early phases of blogging. A pre-TheFacebook.

I’m spending some time working on fixing my blog archives and there are a couple of posts about LiveJournal and my attempts (eventually successful) to script a cross-posting module in MovableType to share my posts automatically on LJ using what we call today an API.

I loved LJ, it was simple, individual-centric, and offered simple communities for sharing information with people (not necessarily friends) that inhabited the real world communities one lived in.
