How in the world am I supposed to juggle two blogging sites?

As of this morning, I think half of my active friendslist is gone to DW. Many of them (more than half?) aren't crossposting to LJ. I'd really rather not lose contact with people, but I barely keep up with my friends page on LJ, I don't think I could keep up with a DW circle(? is that the right term? Circle?).

Ugh. I don't blame people for leaving if that's what they want to do. I just wish there were an easy way to pull all the posts I want to read on LJ, DW, and elsewhere into one big feed.

You can make an RSS feed of your journal on either site, I wonder why you can't get a feed for your friendspage/circle? That would solve this problem.

Ah ha, hmmm, LJ DOES have a feed for your friendspage! http://user.livejournal.com/data/rss_friends (But that works only if you have a "professional" level account, which luckily I do.) So I suppose I could read on DW and pull my LJ friends list in there...

Well how do you like that. I made this post to complain, and by the end of it I solved my own problem.

I suppose now I have to somehow set up crossposting to both places...

Just to be confusing: I'm thistlechaser there (no underscore). Follow me here for the most likely chance of seeing my new posts. Follow me there to see them if I get this crossposting thing worked out.
