Is it just a ghost town around here now? I haven't spent much time here because it's been easier to relieve the pressure behind my eyes with quick short inanities on Facebook, finding thinner but more numerous tendrils of connection in photos and reminiscences and chat. My problem with Facebook was the same problem I had with MySpace: having something to say was an afterthought, a tiny piece of the social-oriented whole. I guess that's where LiveJournal is massively superior. You can be social and chat here and comment and post pictures but the focus has always been on words. I do miss words.

This place has gone completely to shit. Its slow, it has pop-up video ads, the communities are filled with hypocritical little self-righteous preachy bastards, and all the money goes to fund the Russian Mafia. You want the old days back? Dreamwidth or Tumblr or whatever is ready when you are...

I am not so foolish as to desire the old days but a place to be more verbose without caring about audience or even response. I have Tumblr but have only ever used it once and it seemed more like an empty space to put upon whatever you will.

I have periods where I think LJ is slowing down but then I just add some new names to my f-list. As long as I keep restocking with new journals, I find I have plenty of posts to read. In fact, after coming back from a few weeks away from LJ, I'm finding it kind of overwhelming to get caught up again. I really like LJ the most of the various social sites online that I've tried.

I made this as a comment somewhere else a few months ago but I know you didn't see it, so here it is:

LJ is a shadow of its former self. Fewer people are here, and those who are come less frequently and post even less. It's really too bad, but who has the time to blog like it's 2002?
