Is it just me, or everybody else is also bored to death with LJ? It looks so... Some of my friends seem to drop here ones in a month now to say "Hi, I am still alive, and I remember you", some other friends I care for do it ones in a week or so. There're nothing interesting is going on, except for the rare photo-, art-, and poetry- posts, that became rarer and rarer. And I see most of the art and photos of my friends in dA anyways - and before it appears in their journals, as they see my stuff in my dA gallery first. Really, the only thing why I keep checking LJ is my j-rock community. I don't bother to translate my posts anymore, I don't care - and seems that no one does. I don't bother to share news and photos - for the same reason. Blah.
Does everyone else feel the same about LJ?

I've been feeling the same way -- hardly anyone posts any more...and when I post, hardly anyone comments which makes me feel like it's not worth it to even bother.

That said, I like knowing what's going on in your life!

Oh yes, I like to know about your life and thoughts too! I'd love to know how my other friends are doing - but they hardly post anything those days.
Those who are still active are mostly re-posting boring stuff from some unknown and uninteresting to me persons' journals. Some are saying "I am reading my friends' posts, I just don't have time to comment" - not very encouraging, either. And I am afraid that if it'll go like that we also will become "shadows in the f-lists" with time.

And, as I mentioned, I see your art in dA earlier than in LJ - we even started to comment on each other's art there, I guess it's because dA's atmosphere is much more alive that it's here.

Isn't it what happened to Elfwood community at some point?

It's very much like Elfwood! I used to love that site so much and check it every I only update it once or twice a year (and I was actually thinking of deleting my gallery...but I don't know. I still have good memories of the site, even though I don't like it now).

I've been noticing very few people posting, but it seems like something that sorta cycles here and there? I like LJ because it's more personal than facebook. But I agree with Sara, it seems like no one comments so it's sorta like "Why bother?"

I like knowing what's going on with everyone, but it has been quite slow lately.

I also like LJ more than FB - I've no idea why I still keep my FB account, I never post there anything. Guess you are right about it having active/non active cycles.... May be it's just the end of winter.

У меня в ЖЖ уютная компания. Иногда некоторые из этой компании оживляются, иногда затихают. Такие волны были уже не раз, все циклично :) Сейчас как будто небольшой спад, февраль и все такое, в основном у моих френдов остатки зимы, ну кой у кого уже весна, но их меньшинство. А остатки зимы для меня, например, это тяжело, какой-то такой период не лучший... но есть в моей фленте люди, которым пофиг: зима-незима; пишут, вдохновляют, не дают засохнуть.
Мне нравится ЖЖ, много вдохновения и пользы. (звучит прям как реклама)

Хорошо тебе! :)
А мне кажется , жж стал такая тоска, что и самой что-либо постить влом. Впрочем, насчёт цикличности - это наверное верно...

Everybody must work! Arbeit macht frei! :)
That sounds very german! :))

I have not enough time for LJ because of many activities in real life. Sorry for that, but I am not able to change it. Lazy? No inspiration?
No matter as long as I fulfill my duty.

In LJ's of my friends I am sometimes a shadow, as you described. I don't know, how shall I change it. I don't like anything artificial.

С Днём Защитницы Отечества Тебя и семью! :))

Да понятно всё, у меня тоже еесть реальная жизнь. Для меня жж в основном творческое общение,всегда грустно, когда у людей нет времени и желания творить.

Тебя тоже с праздничком:)

I know I am not here as much and I don't post as much. I have also noticed that if I don't get on LJ for a few days I have only missed a few pages of updates. Most of them are by you and and Sara Bean.

I really miss sharing like I used to and I have the best intentions of doing better, but I cant' seem to get things scanned and post. I feel my life is chaotic, I guess. Like I am running a thousand miles and hour but getting nowhere.

I love seeing your art and I always enjoy getting a glimpse into your. You are one of the few people I know online that I really connect with.

That's what I am talking about. For me situation looks somewhat the same.

I am trying to keep it alive, but I really don't know why.
