So I was talking to an acquaintance last night about the eminent decline of LJ. She had a pretty good point that much of the casual I did this today and quizzies have all moved to Facebook. /nod true enough. However regardless of my presence over at Facebook I still have a affection and purpose for LJ. I like reading longer thoughtful posts that most don't bother with on Facebook. I also like the communities and it is where all my external blogs feed to. So, in an effort to make my contribution to the continued success of LJ, I am making an official effort to post everyday for the month of February, and hopeful to continue into the rest of the year. So I will leave you with a poll.

[Poll #1674720]

Pretty much anything at all, really.

What is this imminent decline of LJ? Just people migrating slowly away, or is there some event I'm unaware of?

I'm not much interested in joining facebook. I definitely don't want my family in my online space.

IMO, I'd say it's the slow (or not always so slow) migration to other social media locations that are time-sponges. I don't spend as much time on LJ - either reading or posting - because the free time I have is spent trying to keep up with Twitter and occasionally dipping into Facebook. Also, now that I have a smart brilliant phone, I get the vast majority of my social media via that device, and there's not a good LJ client for it.

Mainly it's what Mike said. A gradual shift away from LJ into Facebook & Twitter. There is also a small amount of attrition DreamWidth and external blogs.
The reason for the post and the effort is just some grumblings I've been hearing about lack of people posting. Reminding me that I like it when I post more.
