First, Happy Birthday [livejournal.com profile] stevefoxx

I went back thru my posting history and realized I have not made a substantive post in quite some time.

I used to post quite regularly, weekly even, with ideas of importance.. and now? Not so much.

So, to Re-Cap;

I got laid off in December of 2010, I then;
Went to a RAIn BOD meeting in Whidbey Island.
Drove down to LA, spent a month.
Spent a month with my "It's Complicated" (Mate) in San Jose.
Went to FC2010.
Went back to LA for January Prancing Skiltare Party.
Drove back to the bay to visit with [livejournal.com profile] tamino
Drove home, visited with HunterKitty in Eugene on the way out.

I then came back and found a job at a Data Center.

I miss the conversations, and wide social network I had 3-4 years ago, I need to stop looking inward and start looking outword again.

I also have a partner (kinda), something I at some point I need to post about?

Is LiveJournal dying? god I hope not, the alternatives suck.

From my point of view LJ ain't dying as long as there's interaction between friends.

Unfortunately, many friends view this as a one-way street.

This, then makes it so that less people respond to their post. I have one friend who posts daily. Most of the time he gets zero response. He never reads, or responds to any of his friend's blogs!

One the other hand, however, if you're big, all you gotta do is post a pix with one word: "Hello," and you'll get about 25 offers for sex and friendship.

Just my 2ยข.

You know, every time I see someone with a big grey beard, I think of you now :-P

Maybe I ought to post more pictures then.

My opinion is that the more cerebral the post..the less attention it will get. People seem to be after instant gratification these days.

This has been largely true for me. I think the majority of what I post is long enough that people don't bother with it. But It's stuff I want to write, at least for myself, so... *shrugs*
