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'm getting worse at updating, mostly for time reasons. I think you're right though, the communities have mostly moved to other places. I still want to keep updating though, because when I get my arse in gear it actually covers a lot more ground than what I say on FB, and it's nice to be able to occasionally put my thoughts in order.

Yep, this. Also useful for retrospectively going back and reminding me of things like, oh, when I moved office and STUFF.
