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..?

It's been replaced in different ways by different solutions that are better.
Wordpress and Tumblr do blogging better
Facebook G+ and twitter do mini-updates better
Facebook does event organising better.

We all started on it as a social network in the days before social networks were popular (oh hipster us). I still look at my friend list on occasion and wonder how many on there still check this place and how many took it off their hotbar a long time since.
