Let's try this again ...

I've been around LJ for quite a while now, and I've been active in fits and spurts.  It's always been my go- to home for fandom, and I've been all over the fucking map with that, to be honest!  But more importantly, LJ has been the one form of social media that has always felt like the right fit for me.  In fact, I never really thought of LJ as "social media" until recently.  I hate Facebook with the fire of a thousand suns; tumblr is just that place where I waste hours looking at pictures of pretty boys and collecting quotes from my current fandom obsessions.  But LJ ... THIS is where I actually interact, express myself, share my thoughts and feelings, you get the idea.  Here is where I write & journal & ramble, without worrying what someone else is going to think or say.  

And while it would be easy to assume - based on my prolonged absences - that this place isn't important to me, that assumption would be dead wrong.  So in the spirit of a new year, I am going to make an effort to be here more often.  To try and be legitimately "social" so I can be reassured of the dependability of this community.  

Because gods forbid I should come looking for LJ and find it has withered on the vine because too many people like me treated it carelessly, and even worse, took it for granted.  Because we all know there is nothing else like it in all the vast wastelands of the Web.


I haven't ventured to Dreamwidth, although I do see lots of references to things being cross-posted. Are you under the same name there? Duh, I guess so, since you changed your name here to be consistent across the internet, right? ;-)
I miss LJ sometimes. I don't hate Facebook, but it's for real life (mostly), so there's a lot I don't talk about there. Twitter is okay, but 140 characters isn't really enough. And yeah, Tumblr is for looking at pictures. When it works for me. Which is not often. Everyone should come back to LJ!
It's good to see you again, okVegas, I enjoyed some of the George conversations we had in the past!
