I come here some times for one reason or another and feel a bit sad... Livejournal used to be my main fandom platform and there were thigns about LJ and LJ culture that I really loved and still love/would love. But...over the past few years I've basically switched over to tumblr. Not because I like everything about tumblr so much but because LJ has had a massive drop in activity. I was already noticeable when I first got a tumblr but now its very clear. Most of the people I've had on my flist here who are still in fandom (as far as I know) are on tumblr too. The culture there is different then it was here and I still like the old LJ culture more than I like the tumblr one. Tumblrs searchability for fandom purposes is, admitedly, far superior of course, due to tags...
But I do miss this place sometimes... It's become, more or less, obsolete but...So many of my fandom experience happened here. Pretty much my entire HP phase happened here and a lot of those experiences were formative, even though, by then, i had technically already been in fandom for several years.
I don't even know what this post is baout. Nostalgia I guess? So much nostalgia...
