Dear friendslist,

If you haven't already, do backup your LJ!
Well, in truth, I only read that FAQ link, skipped it, & searched for other methods instead *lol*

I stumbled upon very helpful tutorials and found a couple of nifty tools for backing up LJ.

The great tutorials:
1. Backing up your LJ: a guide for Windows users (thank you [info]brown_betty)
2. How to Back-Up Your LJ (thank you [info]liz_marcs)

The best backup tools:
1. ljArchive (see [livejournal.com profile] ljarchive for updates)
2. LJ Backup (see [livejournal.com profile] ljbackup_dev for updates)
3. LJ-Sec (see [livejournal.com profile] ljsec for updates)
4. LJ Migrate (check out the tutorial)

I only use the first three, because the 4th one uses Python and I'm too lazy to learn it :P
From the three above, my favorite is ljArchive. It lets you archive communities as well (provided you have posting access). How nifty! Oh, and let's not forget the sync ability! I just love it! ♥♥♥

This whole backup awareness all started because of the oh so many computer mishaps in the last two months, and I've become very aware of backing up my online & offline data as a result.

Oooh, I absolutely LOVE this layout! ♥♥♥

I happened to bump across this layout within the last week while searching on yahoo! for "lj layouts" & found LJ Directory. From there, I found [community profile] thefulcrum, the LJ layout community created by [personal profile] grrliz. Beautiful, simply beautiful!

So anyway, I just finished customizing it. While also at the same time browsing for cool icons, and other LJ & non-LJ resources. Guess what... I found the most wonderful graphics resource community: [info]freshmakers. Too bad membership is by invitation only... but you can still download the resources :3

Only recently have I realized that LJ has a lot of nice design & graphics communities. And the icons! Neverending... I always managed to find lovely icons in new & old communities/user pages everytime I searched for them. Why did it take me so long to figure it out? >_<


"There are those relationships that open you up to something new and exotic, those that are old and familiar, those that bring up lots of questions, those that bring you somewhere unexpected, those that bring you far from where you started, and those that bring you back. But the most exciting, challenging and significant relationship of all is the one you have with yourself. And if you can find someone to love the you you love, well, that's just fabulous..."
