The last time this question was asked was back in 2009, so just wanted to see if anyone had any advice or recommendations for getting a super old LJ printed into some sort of keepsake book. [more inside]

What's the social media now for LJ?

I used to be on LJ and loved it, making online and RL friends until I began editing myself to silence because my ex was not keen on what I wrote etc. Now I'd like to talk to people again but how's that done in 2015? Twitter, Tumblr, Myspace? I want to be able to write short random posts, but what I miss most is the interaction and sense of community, reading a group of friends and having conversations in comments and messages. Facebook feels like shouting across a mall.

Looking for blogs in all the wrong places

Due to some nostalgia from my high school days when it seemed like everyone had a LiveJournal, I'd love to start reading more of that type of personal blogging, but it seems a little hard to come by these days. I'm looking for suggestions for blogs (could be on any platform: Tumblr, LJ, et cet) that are regularly updated and used mainly for personal, introspective, "journal-y" writing. [more inside]

Is there a way to tell who is reading my LiveJournal page?

Is there a way to tell who is reading my LiveJournal page, either by LJ account name or IP? Does it make a difference if they have friended me (but not vice versa) or whether I have a pay account? I know about the "My Guests" tab, but if I'm understanding things correctly that only tells me about people who are logged in and have opted to be "visible".

Who do you like to read?

What are some chatty, intelligent, funny personal blogs that I should be following? I used to love reading about people's daily lives on Livejournal, as well as knowing what music, books and films they were enjoying, but I haven't been back to LJ in years, and most of my friends have stopped updating. Something like a more regularly updated Defective Yeti is what I'm looking for. [more inside]

Help me count hits and track referrers on my LiveJournal site.

A colleague of mine, as well as a fellow blogger, used BlogFlux's MapStats to track hits and referring addresses with his TypePad site. Now, he's switched over to LiveJournal, which doesn't allow Javascripting, so he's lost the ability to track referring addresses. Does anyone know of a free HTML counter that he can use that will track referrers? He's found some HTML counters that can log hits, and some others that can track referrers with Java, but he's looking for the best of both worlds. Thoughts?

Archiving LiveJournal

I've got a journal in LiveJournal that I want to download to my home computer prior to deleting. The tool on the LiveJournal site will do this, but only one month at a time. Is there any tool that can handle more than a single month? I'd prefer the XML format, since I might want to do something with them at a later date.

Away from Livejournal

So I am sick of livejournal, and I want to start a blog independent of any form sites. Also, I am interested in learning to create backends and architecture for sites similar to Mefi. Where should I start? What languages? Perl? Bear in mind, my own programming experience is limited to a fairly fluent grasp of HTML, which I know isn't really programming at all. Tips?
