is LJ dead?  

Is Livejournal dead? Are we all using Tumblr and Twitter (and for me, to an increasingly lesser degree, Facebook) these days? I don’t ask because of this article (touting LJ’s return; hat-tip to Charlie for the link), but because man, it’s *really* seemed quiet the past few months, and only seems to be growing increasingly so. And of course it’s not any skin off my nose to keep cross-posting, but boy, there’s a lot of whistling in the wind going on.

Of course, a Saturday afternoon/evening is probably not the best time to post and ask this, but once upon a time it wouldn’t have been a *bad* time. Or maybe it’s just everybody’s moved on to a new phase in their lives where they don’t have time to blog as much, much like there was a slow visible drop-off in MUSHing among my friends lo these many years ago now as people moved on and out of college and perhaps out of jobs that let them be online 24/7, and started having children and doing other things which quite reasonably had greater demand on their time.

I dunno. I miss the community. I know I’m not doing a great job keeping up my end, either, with sporadic postings, but I miss it anyway.

I get virtually no interaction from Facebook (and even less from Google+). LiveJournal is my primary social network site.

I'll leave it as an exercise for the reader as to whether that says more about LiveJournal or about me.
