So, here I am; back on LJ.

I've thought about it and, well, I've been on Facebook more because I get more response there. *shrug* It's true. I need the feedback and the attention since being online is the only human contact I have many days.

I miss the days that LiveJournal was a vital, healthy, interactive, supportive community. I remember raising enough money on here to get [ profile] apocalypticbob a new motor for her car. I also remember she and a former friend helping raise money for my move back to Kansas City after my divorce. And that was also before social fund-raising sites like GoFundMe were even a thought; I'm pretty sure that such sources were invented from such efforts on LiveJournal,

But it is what it is and here I am again, hoping to reconnect with people here.

I'll try to be better about posting. I know I can say more on here than I can on Facebook.
And I hope to see more friends that I know IRL here on LiveJournal.

Here with ya Susi! I come to LJ for the very same reason: I can say things here without worrying about what someone will respond to. I often find myself posting things privately for only myself as more of a diary, but I, too, miss the connections that LJ once provided.

Welcome back! I'm glad you got my vibes that you needed to return here. ;)

Yeah, thanks!

Now to see if I can keep it up.

Yes, I've missed having more folks in this venue. I've stayed for the journaling. Being able to go back and check details has been handy on many occasions. But having company here is a great additional benefit so I'm very happy to have you come back here.

Yes, as I said in the first sentence, that's why I have been on Facebook more, too.

And we'll be more likely to see your posts here than on FB!

I hope so. It's hard to tell on some days.

LJ's not dead, and I hope it will never be. I try to get at least a post a week. FB's just the wrong venue for anything substantive, and those of us with important things to say about our lives will always need a larger canvas that isn't already scribbled over in crayon.

Yes, that's it exactly.

Plus I can post stuff here about my dearly beloved (but annoying as fuck) sister without her seeing it because she never could figure out LJ.

And FB is so fucking addictive.

I'm going to try to do better.
Of course, it may not be very fun to read.

Sorry I missed this earlier---I love your thoughts. Keep them up!
