I got an account here to check it out and keep in touch with people who are potentially leaving livejournal. I haven't really had time to look at it yet but I figure I should post something. It's hard to figure out if you like something unless you try it out. I'm still not entirely clear how this site came about and the shift from livejournal. Of course, the lack of my own internet at home for almost a year now has made it hard to keep up with all of the different trends and dramas that are found out there. I feel on the fringes of so many things. I'm better connected with some people as I've actually had time and desire to get together with them. However, those that I normally socialize with online have suffered from my lack of internet. I haven't been good at reading livejournal and facebook has become much easier and quicker these days. I can get snippets from other people and leave my own with very little hassle. This has left me feeling disconnected with livejournal. I have moments of wondering why no one has commented for a while and then I remember that I haven't posted anything to be commented on. And the comments I have made either don't need a response or have already been responded to. I miss that social aspect of my life. It may be healthier that I'm spending more time with people than just online. That has yet to be seen as I feel there are several types of community. It's just a matter of balance.
