After all the years with lj I find I don't use it as much as I should to have a paid account. So I'm dropping it (the paid account that is). I will still read but I don't even do that daily anymore.
It's sad in a way. I just don't want to miss my contacts. So if anyone is on Wordpress, facebook, flickr, or even twitter. Please leave your
link here. I think LJ like myspace is a dying breed. I've noticed fewer and fewer posts when I do come back to read. I know there are die hards still posting
but it's getting fewer and farther between.

Love ya

LJ seems to be more of a networking tool amongst writers. I set up my LJ posts to also go to Facebook, where I have more friends and family contacts, but my LJ f-list is heavy on the writer blogger side of things. I don't have a paid account, however, mine is one of those funky free accounts that has some of the features of the paid accounts. Some writer sorts have migrated to Dreamwidth, and I have an account there as well, but I don't check it very much. LJ and FB keep me plenty busy.

WordPress will crosspost to LJ as well. I'm looking at that since I'm getting ready to create a Web page to promote my writing stuff (and some other things I'm doing).

It's funny but back in 2001 I slowly started blogging, and before I moved to Canberra I met people that lived here through LJ, and it started friendships for me here. By the time I moved to Australia I was posting here at least once a day. I posted lots of photos and stories about the differences I was experiencing. My mother read my posts daily and so did other family members. Now everyone has moved on to facebook or other places. I have a wordpress blog but I keep it private (more like a diary) Some day I might open it up more. I'm sure that if someone wanted to find it and read they could but I don't go out of my way to advertise it.

If you want to have fun with LJ, you can always look at my f-list. Granted, it's usually a bunch of writers either avoiding writing, talking about horses or cats, promoting their latest work, or arguing about esoteric political points of the genre. But as long as we're not in the midst of RaceFail, Mammoth Fail, or NippleFail, it can be kinda interesting.

Well, okay, the Fails can be entertaining as well. Don't know if you read sf, but if you do, there might be a couple of folks you like on there. Political input is also to the left of center (for the US).

FB add

I think FB has sucked a lot of LJ energy. I like it a lot there. However, I don't pour my heart out there like I do here on LJ.

I myself am probably going to be leaving Facebook. Bored.

I'm on facebook, but I never look at it anymore. I find it too boring. Not that LJ is very dynamic these days, but at least a few people are still writing something!

I can't remember if I have you on Facebook, if not I am more than happy to add you. Seems a shame that lj isn't used as much, I know I don't use it as much even though I do check in from time to time to read.
