'ello 'ello 'ello - Echoes of Flavio's Ghost Dreaming

'ello 'ello 'ello
The more I look at Ello the more I wonder. Livejournal can do all that Ello can and a whole lot more. So can Dreamwidth, the LJ clone. So probably can a number of the pretenders to the Facebook Killer crown that have appeared and quietly fallen by the wayside over the years. I hope they do get it right and I would be willing to pay (a small amount) for something that worked ok and had the right policies as well as the right set of features. But my friends and family would have to be in it -and therein may lie the rub.

I'm posting this from the new Android app. despite having accounts on all the other places you mention lj is still my favourite.  I use fb because that's where people are but I wish more would come back here.

Some seem to be coming back, at least occasionally. Maybe the world has moved on or something, but I too still like it here.

A migration back to LJ would make me very happy.
But I will still need something that does events...

This is true.

And that has all your friends in it (therefore it is not Google+...)

I still miss the days when everyone was on LJ. Even if my use of it has always been a bit...er...

But still, it's nicer than the alternatives. I can't see abandoning ship just yet. If I do, it'll be to something like wordpress.
