Interestingly, my longevity on this platform likely inserted a major snag into the process of leaving it. When I tried to import my entries to WP, I had issues with the encoding. Apparently, LiveJournal converted to Unicode at some point after I started using it, so I had to mass-convert everything to that encoding. Once that was accomplished, the transfer was a breeze.
I'm not sure yet whether the switch will lead to increased output; I do hope it leads to increased visibility. As for this, I've got no reason to take it down, so I won't. But it'll remain frozen here on September 3, 2012. That being the case, it won't be too out of date when the reckoning comes to pass in three and a half months, right?
I'm back here after less than three weeks.
