A Decade..?

I find this rather odd, but it would appear that I have had my LJ account for a decade today.

Once the home for all my musings and ramblings (and the site of more than a few bits of hideously self-indulgent whining along the way), LJ has ceased to be important for me in terms of creation and / or publication, but I do still read the journals of those that post here, they who remain...

Since getting married I've found myself devoting less and less time to blogging of any kind, and LJ has suffered more than most. I had a brief spike of posting when I was in New York for work last year - I think that this was mostly because I was on my own and had time to kill - but I haven't posted anything since, until today.

Nonetheless, I find myself unwilling to simply back up the journal and delete it, and I log into it most workdays, if only to scan the work-safe filter that I have on here for reading friends' journals; I sometimes comment...

I wonder if I will still have this account in another ten years..?

I potter about on here more and more again, but still don't feel the urge to post as much as I used to.

Seems we're all in a similar situation. Our lives have moved on and got busier. We don't post as often. We still check the site, but don't feel we have the time / motivation to post. The longer we leave it the harder / less likely it becomes as we feel we'd need to make a long / significant post after such a long delay so don't post easy / short things like "saw a blackbird and 4 bluetits in garden this morning - nice start to my day". We feel nostalgic about LJ, but don't miss it enough to spur us into action. It is fading away.
