The short article itself only mentions LJ in one paragraph:
LiveJournal, which costs $25 a year - or free if a current user refers you - permits only very tiny photos. Its best feature is its community-like structure that lets you easily meet other bloggers with similar interests.In a table, WSJ compares Blogger.com, AOL Journals, TypePad.com (their favorite, although rather pricey), Userland.com and LJ. The LJ part is:
Fairly factual, but I'm not sure they really get the difference between icons, posted photos and photo hosting.
- Name/Price: Livejournal.com
Free if you're recommened by a current user; $25 a year.
- Best Feature: A sense of community that links you to other bloggers with similar interests.
- Ease of Use: Piece of cake.
- Snafu: Lack of features, like photos, that many other programs offered.
- Comment: If you really want to interact with other Bloggers, use this. But many users are on the young side.
