A fresh start?

So I'm thinking of moving away from LJ. Every time I glance at my ad blocker, there are an uncomfortably-large number of advertising and tracking companies in the list, and I'm a permanent(!) user. I shudder to think what free users have to put up with.

I'd probably move to Dreamwidth, or maybe to my own site, but I really like how commenting just isn't an issue on large sites. Those of you still reading, where do you spend most of your writing time nowadays? Do you still blog/journal/etc.?

Another advantage to Dreamwidth is that I can mirror back to LJ -- anyone still here can continue reading with no effort (literally, since I make approximately zero posts a year right now :/).

I'm also not really sure if I should import my LJ to wherever I move to, or archive it and start with a fresh slate. I'm leaning toward a fresh slate but I can see advantages to both. Thoughts?
