Attrition

Wow. Upon reading my friends list, I realize that not only did *I* stop journaling, but it seems the majority of my friends have stopped, too.

What ran us all off (besides that offensive stench that I finally rid myself of once and for all 2 years' ago)?

I have three friends who regularly update and that's it. Oooooooo El Jay - you ain't as purdy as you used to be.

I think its largely Facebook that sucked so many people away. I've only become active again recently to compete in a writing contest.

Its kind of too bad, because one of the fun things about LJ is that you end up friends with all kinds of people who you never knew before, where-as on Facebook, you primarily reconnect awkwardly with people who used to have crushes on you in high school.

What you say is all true, although my high school buddies are mostly female (LOL). :> I just lost my taste in being here for some reason, and was hoping someone could explain this phenom, beyond "Facebook is teh evil". :D

And I damn sure ain't participating in any writing contest on El Jay. That would be like participating in the special olympics, doncha think?

There's also not a whole lot of functionality at LiveJournal. I mean, the most useful feature is the friends' page and even that is sort of outclassed by Twitter and Facebook's front page feed. I guess basically there are better options out there for most casual users, which leaves the hardcore fanfic, furry and emo communities to keep things going.

Facebook really knew how to brand their product. Everyone and their relatives (ha) have one now - even those who don't normally surf the web.

It's bedtime for LJ. Who knows, though - I might pick up and start writing obtuse, ridiculous entries again from out of the blue. lol

Words.

Here is Belladonna, the Lady of the Rocks,
The lady of situations.
Here is the man with three staves, and here the Wheel,
And here is the one-eyed merchant, and this card
Which is blank, is something that he carries on his back,
Which I am forbidden to see. I do not find
The Hanged Man. Fear death by water.
I see crowds of people, walking round in a ring.
Thank you. If you see dear Mrs. Equitone,
Tell her I bring the horoscope myself;

One must be so careful these days.
