+  I seldom post anything original on tumblr, usually just reblog some pics or gifs that I like, maybe upload an original photo I've snapped somewhere.  Today was a banner day for reblogging.  It's all because of Suits.

+  Posted a sort of review over at WordPress of a book mentioned during the IASPR conference in May.

-  I'm thinking of making the comments have a mandatory sign-in of some sort, assuming that's an LJ option.  The spam I've gotten in the last month is ridiculous, a couple hundred comments, higher volume than legitimate comments, most in French, Russian and Hebrew, although a few in English (about canker sores?) thrown in.  There are a few people with whom I've interacted regularly elsewhere that don't have LJ accounts, so I'd miss their observations, but I'm reachable by email, twitter and over at WordPress (where I'll probably start keeping all my book-related posts) so we can still communicate, I hope.

-  Once again I was asked today why a data dump didn't work.  The two databases I've got admin rights to had the data; I have no idea why the report based on the data download is missing data -- that's probably an IT issue related to the report script or data migration that was part of the last release/update/upgrade of the program so IT would be the best place to go for help.  And yet somehow, they asked me first.  The logic escapes me.  

-  My romance reading ennui knows no bounds.  None of the samples or unread books on my Kindle appeal.  None of the books atop Mt. TBR appeal.  Am sad.

I am re-reading some Lois McMaster Bujold, with great satisfaction.

She's always good to reset my reading expectations :)

I'm re-reading Persuasion, another go-to read for me.

You can do what I did with this ID -- make it friends-locked. Only LJ members that are your friends can see and comment. I never get any spam on JP, only on [ profile] riley_merrick.

Sounds like you are getting way more spam than I am -- probably b/c your journal is more visited/linked to than mine.

The weird thing is that I don't think I get much traffic (which is fine because I'm not looking for it). And yet I am still a little reluctant to switch to friends only, although I'm not entirely sure why.
