I wandered over to dreamwidth, where I have an account, and started adding in people that have said they are leaving. I looked at my list of accounts I follow here, and so many of them haven't had new postings in years.

I noticed something else. Some of them, like [livejournal.com profile] maestrateresa and [livejournal.com profile] jaylake and [livejournal.com profile] likesargent and [livejournal.com profile] kathlaw, will never have new postings. I don't want to leave LJ, because it will feel like finally leaving them, too.

Life goes on?

I, too, have people here who will never post again and I don't feel that I am leaving them. They left me already. I would never take them off my friends list, but...well, I still miss them all. I'm not sentimental about skipping off to DW.

A family friend, and my kids counselor, died in a back accident in August.

I'm sorry. It must have been especially hard on your kids.

When I did my list-pruning, I found that 80% of the people on my friends list hadn't posted at all within the last year, and probably 60% hadn't posted within the last two years.

Yes. I got it a long time ago, but never used it.

I'm going to set up a DW account today, and i"m a bit wistful about it too. In 1994 when I joined LJ, this was the first real social networking site I'd been a part of. Not a newsgroup or a mailing list, but a site with friends lists and features that let you read what you wanted and filter what you don't. I suppose I'd better use the same name over there so that people will know who I am.

I kinda wish
