At least publically. I still use LJ as my own personal journal. But I've been ignoring the "live" part for a long time. Seems that most folks are on other social networks such as Google Plus, Facebook and twitter. Which are both fine but seem a lot more impersonal and for the "quick and dirty" updates.

I do miss LJ. I miss the community that seemed to be built around it. FB and others seem to be more like sound bites than real stories.

Anyway, who is still around here?

Indeed. On the other hand, the others are also dirt simple, possibly because they're designed for our sound-bite world.

Seems to me I wind up using the others until I want to blather on about something at length, and then I do it here. And then link to it from FB, since that's where everyone is these days...

Oh, and there's the other reason I'm not here much: My Russian is _terrible_...

yeah, since the russians took over, I must say that things have felt much different. Even before FB took over the world.

That's been my feeling. LJ hasn't been LJ for years now... and it's been reflected in it's vanishing English community

Not here anymore. Keep thinking I need to archive my entries and then delete this journal. Never make the time. Nowadays I am most often found on Facebook.

I'm still here. I guess I'll always think of LJ as my home on the Internet. Most everything else is just noise and fluff.

I rarely post on LJ anymore - only sporadic image posts. And the last one was over 3 months ago. I spend most of my time on FB, but you already knew that.

I'm here reading. I was really never much of one for posting. I do post to Google Plus but that's mostly because it is easier to share photos there and +FoodFriday got my attention there and a friend from Denmark asked to see my fiber project photos and he won't join Ravelry.

I am here and I update here with things I want to keep forever.

I'm still here. I can't talk about "real" stuff on fb or G+. Not that anyone else is here to read it when I do post, but meh... I like keeping a searchable archive of my life.

Bah, am TOO here to hear when you post ;p

I'm sorry, that was badly phrased wasn't it? I didn't mean no one no one. I was thinking comparatively to the heydays of lj when lots of people were here and posting and it really felt like a community. I miss that. But you are very right: you, and [ profile] kth_dragon are two people who still read and comment, and I appreciate you both very much for it.

There are a few other people still around, too [not dissing anyone here!], but it's less than what I can count on two hands these days.

I'm still here! I write here when I have more to say than just a short paragraph, and I read here regularly.

I'm also still here. ^..^

I'm still here.

Still working out personal demons via the keyboard.

You're right tho about FB and the rest being blurbs..
Not a LOT of substance.
Not like here..not like "way back when."

I'm still here, though it can be intermittent.

I'm awful about posting on my own thing, though. These days, I do well to throw short updates on Facebook, much less any real journal time, internet or otherwise.


I should probably work on that.

Still here, still listening. I too have gone more private with my posts.

Still here. I mostly read, but I have been posting more.

I think Facebook is the "pass this email on to your friends" kind of place. I try to be more substantive than that, but I fail... a lot. ;-)

Google+, to me is like a microwave. To quote "Pinky and the Brain": "Nobody really knows how a microwave works"....

My primary blog home is dreamwidth, which replicates here. If I want/need to write something long, it goes to DW/LJ. I don't necessarily link this back to FB or G+, because there are people on FB that do not want or need to know some of what ends up in my real blogging environment.

unfortunately, I need to return home before I can tell the story of this deployment.

I lurk. I blog over at blogger now. I started a mommy blog, which is really just a glorified baby book these days.

Still here reading. Mostly posting FB, that's where a number of people I'm close to hang out... I'd love to drag everyone to DW and get them to make that home, but a lot of what's going on on FB is politics, and that b----y "share" button is just *too* convenient....

Still around, just not as prolific with my posts as I once was. I also miss how LJ used to be. :T

Same here. Don't post much because my life is somewhere between absolutely boring, or too controversial for public display. (Mostly just the boring.) But I read, and delight in updates. And let's face it, FB just doesn't let you do this...

One does not silly walk into Mordor...

I am still here and emphatically NOT going to FB or Twitter or the sixty thousand other social networking places. Ugh.

Also belated congrats on getting married!

I pop by occasionally, but primarily live on twitter.

Still here intermittently, when the urge to write more than a sentence hits and stays. I miss it, the community you mentioned.

I'm still around, although not as frequently as I mean to be.
