I think I have to stay

I can't bear facing this dissolving. Mass exiting. happening so fast.

This place is, has been, so actual a place I can go. Come in out of the rain. I can't put into words the magic of it, the traveling to you, the stories of your lives, the love and tether I feel. And I know I have taken it for granted lately, sure that it would always be here... this place made up of people from across everywhere that so many times make a world of difference for me... small but huge, with all everyone's rough edges and good humor and brilliant suggestions and wit and how many times I have felt rescued, been given a hand and I am just so very sad and ok, worried about my sanity.

So for now I am here. I think goodbyes are stupid. Maybe I'll start posting every day.

Please do. I'm on the fence.

Just stay

I'm still here. I'm going to try to post more.

good---I enjoy your posts!

I want to k ow what happened to Razzle. I know you don't know but what happened to make you notice a change? How's he doing?

Apr. 20th, 2017 08:28 pm (UTC)

Hang on, what has happened to The Razman?

I will try to figure out how to post about it

I've missed your posts here.
Apr. 20th, 2017 08:40 pm (UTC)
I've been distracted, sorry

It obviously meant more to some than others, or maybe people just like something new or different or more "torrential" which LJ has never been. I liked when I'd open the page and see 2-3 posts from people I really want to hear from, or care about. Now I can sometimes go a day or two with NO new posts... and that was sad. But I was ok with the lessening. FB drives me bats. I do see some worth in it for some things, but the whole flow of it really grates on me. I'll try to participate in the FB LJ page... but I have a feeling my heart is not in it.

FBLJ is just something different

It could be lovely, to gather secretly there amongst the noise and flash, but its less of a real place the way LJ is... FB feels evaporative

Yes. I haven't figured out how to make it feel right.

If others will follow, I'll start posting on dreamwidth. Same format and I was able to transfer my entire blog there super easily.


The facebook group is nice but it's not like LJ, that's for sure.

how are you liking your other, Kestrel blogging place?
Apr. 20th, 2017 08:52 pm (UTC)
I really really like the platform, but only for more formal "groomed" thoughts. Pretty much all my posts here are friends locked, sometimes double locked. I feel like I can share pretty much anything here, so they function very differently for me
Apr. 20th, 2017 09:15 pm (UTC)
right. platform looks stylish cool, but you have to finish your thoughts? yep, too much for me right now, it'd be like writing a book, ready for publication thinking...

and i have major loved the LJ multi-locking levels aspects here. I have indeed

It's been an amazing place for so long. Kind of beautiful to hear how it has impacted everyone's lives. I've always loved your posts

I don't think I would ever have developed the kind of tethering I feel to the LJ peeps if I had just met on FB... you know?
Apr. 20th, 2017 08:52 pm (UTC)

Yes it's a different space

I just can't leave yet, I don't want to give it up. I haven't posted as much lately. Maybe this is a good wake up call for me to post more and not take this wonderful space for granted. I like the LJ 2.0 FB group for short little quick snippets though, especially when I am on the road since my LJ iPad app stopped working a while ago.

good. glad you will stay. I'm going to make an effort to be more of a presence here too. I've been so busy working with Razzle, for a while there we didn't think he'd make it to Finland
Apr. 24th, 2017 02:30 am (UTC)
I'm staying! Post away and I'll be reading and will try to comment more! :)
