Livejournal, Butter and Editing - Oh My!

I've been chatting/commenting on some LiveJournal blogs recently which really has re-interested me in livejournal versus blogger blogging. I like the friends thing and how it's more of a cross conversation than just posting entries with no back and forth like I feel I do here. I also like the changing avatar ability when you comment. At the same time, I like being able to control the look of my page, which seems more of a blogger thing. I don't know...anyone have any thoughts?

Last night I had a work dinner at Butter, one of the real scene'y restaurants in NYC, where Paris Hilton often hangs out. (Sadly, no sign of her last night.) The food was delicious! I started with a warm, goat cheese salad, then duck confit, with rasberry beignets for dessert--mmm. Washed it all down with a couple delectable Butter Martinis.

I'm sooo close to being done with all my Gamer Girl edits. I'm just re-reading it through now, making sure all the changes are in and make sense. I hope my editor likes what I've done with it. Next up will be finishing my anthology and doing edits on News Blues. Never ends, I tell you!

Today in the studio we had Carolyn Kepcher, Donald Trump's former right hand woman on The Apprentice. She was really nice and down to earth. I never really watched the show so I had no idea what to expect, but was pleasantly surprised.

That's about it for now! :)

I agree, LiveJournal is definitely the better blog (which is why I blog on both). And you can still integrate it into an existing site without too many hassles (they even tell you how to, from memory).
Blogger feels a lot more isolated because it's much harder to keep track of comments (both yours and others), but it seems more people are going for it. Whyever that may be...

I think you SHOULD come back to LJ. I love it for the lazy-factor in the friendslist. It makes it sooo easy to keep up. *g*

What's your LJ username, may I ask?

Have a lovely day! :-)

It's Starrgirl7. I have only been using it to read friend journals and comment so far, but I really do think I'm going to start to cross post from now on! :)
