10:46 pm - I feel bad about not updating LJ for so long
LJ has been a part of my life for many years; so long, that it overlaps with a text file journal I kept on my own computer from circa 2002-2004. I don't want to give it up. Facebook is NOT an adequate alternative. How to motivate myself to get back to LJ when so many people have abandoned it for FB is the difficult question.

I'm on it. But not many people are.

*Looks at G+ circle count and considers number of people I regularly interact with there versus here.*

I respectfully disagree. Although, you do need to be active and engage commenters there. If you circle me, I will 'pimp' you out to some of the more active & engaging people I know there. I've actually grown about 1-2 dozen friendships there in less than a year thanks in large part to G+ Hangouts. The best part? It's kind of like FB for the Livejournal set! Geeks and intelligent thinkers/people abound!

G+ is similar to facebook in that you don't have long entries. LJ is more personal, and definitely not as read by the hordes that my fb is. I'm here, and post frequently.
