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.

Hi. I don't post much in your journal but this made me poke my head up. I like LJ. I prefer the longer, more thought out posts. I'm to slammed/lazy to add to the community lately. Between 3 (one newish-born) kids, a job, a husband and the wind blowing I haven't done much. Which is unfortunate because, for example, my first two kids are thoroughly chronicled on here and the latest one barely has entries. FB has added that timeline thing so I can at find the one liners but it's not the same. Perhaps once I'm back at work and can occasionally get quiet time I'll be better at it.

I still read every post on LJ. I guess I should hold up my end of the bargain and maintain my community, eh?

See, I haven't even updated the profile pick to add the new small. She's technically in there but you can't see her;)
