To live-blog or not to live-blog?

As you may have noticed, I live-blogged Glastonbury this year. I really enjoyed it. For previous festivals I have made more-or-less comprehensive notes with the intention of blogging about them afterwards, but my record of actually writing the damn things up has been lamentable. By contrast, I find that there's only so much dithering that I can do when I'm limited to 136 characters, so I can actually get shit posted in a timely fashion.

However, while I am pleased that I posted more over Glastonbury than I did in the preceding year, I realise that others may not feel the same way. I therefore considerately present the following poll:

Poll #1016038 Live-blogging

Would you prefer to be spared my live-blogging of future musical/cultural events?

Yes, it clutters my friends list
0(0.0%)
Yes, it incites my jealousy
1(3.0%)
No, I love having my friends list puntuated with pithy musical opinions and/or meteorological reports
28(84.8%)
No, I fear that answering 'Yes' will start teh dramas
3(9.1%)
Meh, I only read LJ for the polls anyway
1(3.0%)

Oh, and while I'm at it, does anyone with an inside line have idea when there might be a UK text-to-lj number? I'm using sms_to_lj and it kicks ass, but I'd love anything that would allow me even just a few more precious characters....

Where's the option for "I like seeing posts from my friends, or else I wouldn't have friended them, and if it starts to bother me I'll just scroll faster"? :P

If you're shy about posting short msgs to LJ you could try the refreshing Twitter alternative. Apart from this being what Twitter is for, it means I get texts arriving during dull meetings which is a lot more fun than dull meetings not being interrupted by texts!

Re: livetwittering
I did consider this, but I like the idea of everything being in the same place. I write so much less than I want to, I don't then want that output spread between two blogs (or possibly one blog and one 'blog'. I dunno).

Now if I could set Twitter to auto-update LJ, that would be nifty. I'm pretty sure it can be done...

You didn't include an option for "all of the above" in your poll.

Look, one could have filtered you out for the duration if the frequent happy mud-puppies got too line-depth/frequent for browsing. And one didn't. 'Nuff said. Personally, I was looking forward to the next installment of band reviews while scrolling though 'I'm in the tent, again'.
