11th anniversary on LJ

Today marks 11 years I've been on LJ. Wow. The site (and my use of it) has changed tremendously in that time. I originally joined in order to be more active in the Buffy fandom community, then lost interest in that fandom, then lost interest in actively participating in any fandom at all, and ended up using LJ almost exclusively as a place to write about my daily life and thoughts, interacting with local and distant friends (old and new) on a nearly daily basis. Now, I still write, though not as often, but my "friends" list contains almost exclusively fandom-related stuff, which no longer interests me much.

Funny. The reason I came here is now almost all that remains, but I no longer value it, and what I came to value is mostly no longer here.

*hugs* I fell out of fandom and pretty much life for a long time, too, as you know. I hope that things get better for you. I'm back on LJ mostly trying to just 'connect' with people again and to let off some of my steam in writing. I hope that even if you don't get back into fandom, that using LJ for journaling helps.

I hope you stick around anyway, because it's one way I keep in touch with you. I could probably point you to some folks you'd enjoy reading who aren't into fandom-as-you-use-the-term.
