For reasons I won't go into here I've been looking through my earlier LJ posts. There were a LOT more of them. Granted that was when I assumed everyone wanted to know what type of kitchen appliance I was and what element I was most aligned to, so some reduction ought to be expected.

The reasons I generally post here are to keep people who might want to know what's going on in my life updated on such. I have been posting a lot less lately, though, as the years go by. I think it's partially because I don't want to come across as whining about things. But I don't see how that can cover all the slowdown, though.

I think another part of it is that I can't see how the smaller things really interest anyone. Oh, they MIGHT, but I don't see it. So, this is what's semi-new.

The wall in "Spar Oom" still leaks when it rains so I have to move all the furniture away, pull back the carpet and use the wet vac on the cement then. Joseph has finished reconstructing the main bathroom so that's a load off my mind. He's making noises like he wants to poke holes in the other one, though, the Spar Oom bathroom. That will be less of a hassle, though.

I am attending Shock Treatment at the Nuart next Friday night with Richard, Krystal and hopefully Lori, Gary and Martin. My friend Bill will supposedly be there, I haven't seen him in years. I will be wearing a lab coat and little else at midnight in February and then going to class at 9 am the next morning.

I'm thinking about not releasing icons anymore. I used to have people in the triple digits take and use my icons in the past and last time it was.... five people? That's a lot of work for five people.

I still have Brianna's vacuum in my trunk.

Aren't blogs supposed to be about sharing awesome links and pictures and deep insights? Maybe I have less of those lately...


That's all. Not sure if I should post things like this or not.

I seem to have less of those, too... No shortage of annoyances, though. I figure that since that complaining about them was my original purpose in starting my blog, it's ok.

Do people comment on those posts?
Violet Tigress: Aliceviolet_tigress1 on February 13th, 2010 06:56 pm (UTC)
Yes. Sometimes.

I always feel motivated to give an "aw" for a dear friend's "ow", at the least...

Sorry about the vacuum and the no-see for so long... must fix.

I think the post and icon thing can be blamed on Facebook... (do they even have icons there?)

I've been posting less frequently too. Maybe in general, LJ is winding down for a bit. *shrug* I like the connection I get with you when you do share, even when it's about kitchen appliances.

I blame facebook. If so many people hadn't migrated I think people would post and comment more often.

You actually like quiz results?? *laughing*

I haven't posted an acting update in ages here. Part of it is Facebook, but part of it is that all of my LJ friends list is from fandom, and I'm moving away from that. Doesn't mean I dislike anyone, but the common bond isn't as strong as it once was. The friends I want to maintain contact with are mostly on FB.
Fritters: Ed Resting by Frittersfritters on February 13th, 2010 10:32 pm (UTC)
Yeah, but there is the update limit. Unless you want to post a note, which not everyone may see, it's hard to really connect WELL with friends. You can say little quips, but nothing really deep. That's why I like here. I'm mainly on FB for the games.

I love to read your stuff, all of it. I can not seem to get up off of my ass an make it to go see you in person so this is how I keep in contact with you. I think this is a great post because I get to see inside of your life a little bit.

I need to motivate to post the little things more. Most of the comments seem to be leaning that way. Perhaps I should have made more amusing comments about Joseph tearing apart our bathroom ^_^

I certainly can't fault you for posting less when I barely do it myself anymore. I'm even having trouble organizing posts for that other blog I started, and the whole point of that was to force myself to write more again.

I think when it comes to lj, its important to do it because you want to, and not because you feel like you have to. Even though you mostly stick to picture posts these days, I still enjoy looking at those a lot even if I don't comment on them.

That's a very, very hard thing to do for pretty much everyone I know. One of my friends has his screen saver set to say "Are you writing?" every time it runs.

Good to know you like the picture posts. It's hard to make a point of posting and commenting more, but the whole point of LJ is to connect with the people who are important to us more, so I think I will put more effort that way.

As you know I don't update, barely if at all. My attention is mostly on my twitfacebookterwhatever. I just don't really consider myself much of a writer and when I am motivated enough to write something, it's usually because i'm bitching/whining about something. But I do like reading your entries and keeping up with you. :) Also because I have to:

I will be wearing a lab coat and little else at midnight in February

Pics or shens.
Fritters: Dr. Who - Grins by sweetly_iconsfritters on February 14th, 2010 07:24 am (UTC)
Pics are planned like whoah. I don't think I would dress up as nice as I'm planning if I didn't think I could get a good photo out of it.

Looking VERY forward to seeing you then cutie. :) <3

Just hoping it all turns out as well in real life as I'm planning in my head!
