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.

I've got a Worldcon membership for 2014, but today found myself questioning whether it was a good plan. The last few conventions I've been to have been mixed bags and I'm not certain I really enjoyed them. Going to Worldcon puts limits on what units I can take for my degree next year and it might not be the best way to get quality time with my friends. So I dunno.
