How Depressing

I've had no actual comments here in a while, but I just got two spam comments in less than half an hour. I really fear that LJ is dying. I admit to my own guilt in spending too much time on FB, but I've made some attempts to maintain a presence here, too. I really hope it doesn't just go away.

Hope not, as well. Where else am I going to post installments for NanoWrimo?

Yeah, LJ is a great support for folks who like to write. It's one of the reasons it's so superior to FB in my reckoning.

I'm not posting much but I'm still reading...

Yeah, I read more than I post, generally.

It won't. I won't say I'm helping a lot, because I never write much anywhere, but still.

*HUG*

I'm on here every day! Reading, even if I'm not writing.

ETA: I have set my journal so that there's no anonymous commenting. so that helps the spam.

For reference, my work blog gets anywhere from 6-20 spam comments per day.

You are one of the main reasons I am here much at all.

I'm still here! I don't check every day like I used to, but I do diligently check. I do hope people will stay, and hopefully even drift back eventually, as updates here are generally immensely more meaty and satisfying than those on FB or elsewhere.

Very true. LJ is a much deeper venue.

i will NEVER abandon LJ for Facebook!

-- security / privacy issues
-- threaded comments
-- feeling like we can actually WRITE here, like something longer than a "status update" - and there are fewer folks reading but they are actually reading, not just skimming. FB is a big noisy public event and LJ is that awesome lingering conversation around the dining room table.

Totally! I feel like I am in a cozy salon here. I feel defensive and uncomfortable on FB.

I try to do a "read back 100 posts" every weekday.

Almost never on FB.

If I have something to say of import that cannot fit into a 140 character tweet, I write it here.

That's how I roll, these days.

So glad you are still here, hon. It gives me hope.

This is where I put things that aren't frivolous. I DO use it.
