Sorry About That [Nov. 6th, 2015|12:12 am]
Kelly J. Cooper
I'm sorry, LJ.  I switched computers and forgot about you.  There was this gap, this missing element, but I could not quite lay my finger on it until rmd said something like, "Hey did you see my post?"

Ah, you forget about LJ, but LJ no forget about you, comrade.

Seriously, nice to see your post. A friend of ours wants to get into blogging, and asked if LJ was a good place to start. I had to tell him "well, about 10 years ago I would have said definitely, but so many people have moved on to places like Facebook, you'd probably do better with someplace like Wordpress or Bloglines."

I'd love to get a group of former USENET a.c. and kalbo folks together in some kind of discussion group - there seemed to be some interest in that in the a.c. 25th anniversary thread - but everyone's so spread across different social media platforms, I wouldn't even know where to start.

Send your friend to Tumblr. That's where the kids are these days and the high energy sharing, resharing, quoting, meme blasting, etc.

As for a discussion group, that sounds fun! My suggestion would be to create it on all the major platforms (LJ, FB, Twitter, & Tumblr at least... maybe also Ello) and have them all point back to either (1) whichever allows comments without a login or (2) whichever has the greatest concentration of old-timers.
