I don't read LJ every day any more. There's not enough content to justify it.

I'm entirely useless at updating. I've started taking a snapshot or two every day to at least remind me of what the hell I was doing on any given day. But they go up on Google+ because that's the easiest dispatch method. I'd had a vague idea of annotating them but who has the time?

The LJ "community" is all but gone. The new homepage changes show that LJ care nothing for me, they are courting gossip-loving celebrity obsessed people who want to be popular among their peers.

I haven't been to a convention since last year's Eastercon, which I didn't enjoy. I'm signed up for Nine Worlds and Worldcon but not sure how much I'm going to get out of them. Somehow I'm not part of that world any more, and it wasn't entirely intentional.

On Tuesday I went to a talk by Terry Pratchett and Stephen Baxter, expecting to see numerous familiar faces among the audience. I recognised the guys who produce The Museum of Curiosity, and Mitch Benn was pointed out at the end. There was a face I thought might be familiar but I couldn't attach a name to it.

How things change.

If you're on my friends list, though, I am reading your stuff. I sometimes even comment. But engagement with LJ is definitely diminishing.

  • But I don't WANT to be ill

    Slept away most of the day. Discovered eating is a BAD idea (you are spared the details). Have a stomach ache and still feel tired. At least this…

  • Zzzz

    Time for Ang to look smug. She said all the non-sleeping would catch up with me. I estimate I've had about an average of 4 hours per night since last…

  • Apathy

    Michael just messaged me "Help! Apathy!" And, yeah, that about sums up the working day. I'm tired today. Probably the combination of hard bed…
