stuffy headed kit  
Is it just me imagining things, or are people posting less on LJ these days? I know it's the holidays, which has some effect, but it's seemed to me for the past three months or so the posting intensity has dropped. Which, if I'm noticing that, really means I need to get out more...

I've been taking cold medicine, what with having a cold and all. One of the kinds I took completely dewired my brain. Ted spilled syrup on the floor on Christmas morning, so I was cleaning it up, except I was sitting there on the floor with paper towels and dishrags with sticky syrup all over the place, and I could not, from second to second, remember what it was I was doing down there. o.O The kind I'm taking now doesn't seem to do that, which is good, 'cause I still need to go do my AAs. Good thing I'm five hours ahead of New York...

Ok, I see today is the kind of day where I end sentences with ellipses. Since that drives me batshit, it is clearly a Sign that I need to go play some City of Heroes do my AAs.

I posit the trajectory hypothesis.

You (generic 'you') join LJ: you're all enthusiastic at first, and post lots, joining in all sorts of conversations all over the place. Then, you move on, your interests change, you've already seen all the points made a hundred times, and your posting frequency drops. You may not actually leave, but you can go dormant.

Even if you don't follow the same trajectory, you may find that a number of people on your Friends List have done. Since a large proportion of that list will be relatively old entries, added when you were freshly joined yourself, the trajectory hypothesis means that the number of posts you see from them will tend to drop off.

Plausible...?

(Damn, an ellipsis has cross-contaminated me!)

That was pretty much my hypothesis, too, so it certainly seems plausible to *me*. :)
