Just missing all of you on Livejournal.  I hope everyone is doing well.  I just went back through some of my old entries, and there's a mojo here that Facebook doesn't have.  I miss it.

Nice to see you! How have you been?

Good. Amazing, really. Business is good, marriage is good. We're trying to buy a new home and Aly is 19 weeks pregnant. Excitement all around!

Holy crap - that is all huge! I'm so happy for you! Congrats on everything!

You are not alone in thinking that... this place does have a mojo that fb does not have. In fact, the only reason I created an LJ account was to keep up with friends I don't see all the time. They migrated, one by one, to fb... which I despise with all my being. However, it's the only place I can sort of, eventually, if fb decides to show me and I happen to log on in the five minutes that notification is visible, find out how they are doing. *sigh*

I miss LJ. The only thing on my friends page was friends... Nothing else to scroll through, no hours wasted, and whether I was gone a day or a week, I only had to read back to the point I last remember, and I'm done. It didn't change the order randomly, so there's no hope of tracking what I've seen or not seen.

Have I mentioned I hate fb? I do keep hoping something with change, and folk will migrate elsewhere. But I've given up hope it will be back here. *sigh* Good to know you're still out there! :)

The order changing thing is frustrating. You can click on each person and follow their feed back in order, but that can be pretty time consuming to do for very many people.

Hello! *waves back*

Come back to Livejournal - I agree, facebook has never been able to fulfill the need to express anywhere near the same way LJ does.
mishlaimishlai on April 8th, 2015 12:27 am (UTC)
And when I manage to express something well on FB I can never find it again if I want to.
Cassandrapinkrouge on April 8th, 2015 02:41 am (UTC)
Yes, that too! Ugh facebook.

Howdy stranger. Yeah, some of us are still lurking in the shadow of LJ's former glory.

I took the plunge and disconnected from the FuB a while back (completely, cold-turkey, no-turning-back). Life has improved dramatically.

I wish you all the best.

I've cut back pretty severely, and it has been an improvement. So much time spent, not all of it wasted, but a majority was not spent well.
