Here is my thirtieth post for November. Not quite the same as writing a 50,000 word novel (or 50,000 words of a novel) but not bad. This is about the equivalent of three months’ worth of postings given what I was doing the previous year or so. The whole point, for me, was to make LJ better, if only for myself. It was only kind of a vague idea at the end of October; I wasn’t sure what I was going to do, really. A different idea was in the lead at the time. I won’t spill the beans on that, because I hope to do that and explain it better soon. (It’s not creepy, honest.)
I give a good part of the credit to my newest LJ friend quickcasey. He’s a friend of altivo‘s; I once confided to Altivo that I regularly read his friends list, which made Altivo comment that I must get really bored. 🙂 I’m sure he meant that it might be boring to read the journals of people I didn’t know anything about. But that’s the source of my interest in reading LJs; I’ve read and kept up with a lot of people who I’ve never met over the last nine years. Anyway, quickcasey had two ideas at the beginning of the month: he was going to post every day, and he wanted to gather more friends in LJ, because he, like I, was concerned about LJ’s future. I thought those were two fine ideas. So here we are.
From here, I’m not exactly sure what I’ll be doing. I will continue to post pretty frequently, though maybe not every day — there’ll be posts more days than not, I expect. There’s that other idea I mentioned previously. And I want to try to make more comments in my friends’ journals.
I know I said this about a month ago, but thanks to you-all, for being here and writing and reading.
