Ground control to Major Tom...

I removed a whole crapton of people as "friends" mostly because I'm in here so intermittently, and all of the people I removed were also so intermittent. I kept anyone who's updated at all in 2015 (and even 2014, for the most part, unless I couldn't remember who you were - sorry!). There was one friend removal (a dear friend, who I still keep in touch with on Facebook, thank goodness), who I'd hung on to here that hadn't posted since 2006.

It was pretty bittersweet to go poking through profiles and see the last updated dates... oh - and if your last updated date was recent but I couldn't seen any entries after 2012, I assume we are also no longer "friends." :-) It's ok. So much less drama than an LJ unfriending used to be; I guess that's one of the good outcomes of Facebook, or maybe just being an adult.

Anyway, I am still blogging here intermittently. I tried my own domain; that didn't work out so well. A lot of the ephemera goes on Facebook. But now that I'm out from under heavy kid management time, I expect I'll continue to occasionally update because I'm such an external processor. But I am still on Facebook much more.

I hope all of you are well, whether we are still LJ friends or not, and if it was a mistake to remove you and you suddenly come roaring back to life journaling, well... just leave me a note and I'll probably add you back <3

I know I go back and take my archive and make it private sometimes, so that new friends can't go back and read things from three years ago, sort of thing.

When I write for LJ, I write for me, and for my friends, but I feel like the record is just for me, you know?

Oh, yeah - I certainly have plenty of private entries. It's just like... if I am listed as a friend but the last entry I can see was in 2012, then I assume that person isn't using LJ to interact with others (or maybe just me).

Making old entries private is a good idea!! I hadn't really thought to do that, but yes, stuff from eons ago doesn't really need to see the light of day anymore :-)

Good to see you again.

HI :-D

I'm glad to be back-ish.

You can thank [livejournal.com profile] compulsivelyme for getting me back on the bandwagon by getting back on the bandwagon herself. :-)

I am posting rather regularly

actually I am posting rather regularly... you will find some posts not daily but perhaps weekly more or less and several a month. I regard it as my permanent blog as things here remain accessible in a way they dont on facebook... that does not mean you have any obligation to keep me as a friend of course but since you asked. :)

I wonder why I was not seeing your posts on my friends list. Maybe re-adding will reset that? We'll see.

well I suppose if you go directly to my page you will see my posts they are all open to the public. http://seraphimsigrist.livejournal.com/

I need to weed through as well, not that I have a ton of friends, but yeah, some never update, or like you said, i don't see them. Glad I made the cut :)

I had a clean-up like that not too long ago. I agree - very bittersweet. Especially with those people who've just disappeared completely - not on LJ, not on FB, not anywhere. I can't help but wonder what they're up to.

[identity profile] jadeejf.livejournal.com 2015-10-29 06:58 am (UTC)(link)
Indeed! There were so many that I wondered about; and people who left LJ before the mass exodus, too, that I have fond memories of and am curious about where they're at, but have no way to get in touch with.

I really need to do this...

[identity profile] hankdmoose.livejournal.com 2015-10-31 07:10 pm (UTC)(link)
If I did what you did, I would literally have 2 friends left. Not that I have that many now. I was much more... introverty with LJ than I am with facebook. It's why I don't post anything of substance on facebook.

I could really use to start posting stuff here. I used ot love sitting down and writing posts... thinking about what I wanted to say, how to say it... it's so much better a medium than facebook, even if it's not as popular or as convenient. Time to breathe some life back into LJ?

I vote yes!

Guess I'm in the not-really-know-you batch :) but no problem. However if you bumped based on not posting, well that's definitely not me.

[identity profile] foundmercy.livejournal.com 2015-11-20 08:25 pm (UTC)(link)
I stopped using LJ a long time ago, but I remember you as one of the most level-headed, supportive people I met here. Just want to say thank you.
