My main blog is this one but is less a blog (public posts) and, as you can read at the top (see the top of the page at natf - the 'sticky' post), has had to become largely 'friends-only' which, in livejournal terms, means that only livejournal users that I have added to my 'friends' list (that I prefer to call my 'reading list') can read most of my posts. This has come about because I have had a lot of troll comments, spam comments and 'helpful' comments - people needing to help to fix me even if I have expressly stated that I am only posting as a vent and that I do not want or need any help.
I have a number of other livejournals, as follows:
|natphotoblog is my old photo blog - a separate LJ login - logging in and out of different accounts got annoying.|
|nsf_photos serves as my new photo blog and is an LJ community that only I can join and/or post to so that I no longer have to log out of natf.|
|nsf_artwork is a similar LJ community that I use to post scans of my artwork.|
|nsf_writing - I rarely use this now but it is another LJ account (not community, unfortunately) that I have used to post writings to in the past - I rarely write to that LJ any more though.|
|natalieford - I snagged this account so that nobody else could have it - much like it is suggested that you snag all URLs (e.g. .co.uk and .net) when buying a .com domain - I have natalieford.com and so wanted to preserve this LJ account in case I had a need for it in the future.|
|jadieh is an LJ community that I used to use to post my World of Warcraft 'blog' - Jadieh is the name of my first level 60 - a Night Elf Hunter that has changed servers more than once and now resides on the Dragonblight, UK server.|
I am trying to find a way to import posts from these other LJs into this one. It may be that I need to copy/paste the entries one by one - unless anyone else knows of a better way to do it (from both LJ communities that I own and my other LJaccounts)?
I also have other websites, blogs and web presences, as follows:
|My old coppermine photo galleries on my website.|
|My flickr which has replaced my use of coppermine on my website.|
|My twitter-ings / tweets on twitter.|
|My del.icio.us links page.|
|My (as yet unused) Etsy store.|
|My GreetingCardUniverse store.|
|My (as yet unused) ImageKind store.|
|My Vimeo videos.|
|My ScrapBlog page.|
|My Blogspot account that I only use for commenting on others'.|
|My PostCrossing profile.|
|...and, of course, my NaBloPoMo profile.|
So, in the absence of a blog post with real content, I bring you the above and add a quick question that I jotted on paper (and tweeted on twitter) last night:
Can anyone point me to somewhere that I can buy chewing gum without Aspartame in it? Aspartame crosses the blood-brain barrier and so is unwise for all of us and especially those of us with MS. I miss gum but no gum in the UK, these days, has sugar in it any more, or another less nasty sweetener like sorbitol or splenda...
I leave you with a quote that I have just read in a book:
Chaos should be regarded as extremely good news
It is just a pity that the MS makes me close to autistic-like when it comes to routines and things being in their right place. How to reconcile the two things...
