|02:55 am - Hi|
Well, don't you look nice!
Have you done something with your hair?
That's just wonderful!
Oh, me? yeah, I kind of dropped off the face of the journalling internet. I wasn't feeling it. Or, more likely, I just got even lazier.
I've actually been thinking about twitter lately. When twitter first came out, I was bombarded with the craptasticly boring existence of someone, and it made me vow to never go there.
Now? I dunno. the short little bursts of information could be interesting. Plus, let's face it, everyone's a voyeur to some degree, and twitter is there for that purpose.
I haven't signed up yet though. So don't go looking for the real Mike or whatever lame name I may end up getting stuck with.
Oh, yeah, in case you haven't figured it out yet, with the excessive punctuation and capital letters, this is Mike, not miriam talking. Sorry. I forget to introduce myself. I told you it's been a long time since I've posted.
Do people still post on livejournal? Oh, not you! I mean, other people. I'm still religiously following you. (Crap. blew my cover.)
Also, I realize that posting this question on livejournal is not the greatest random sampling place. It's more rhetorical. But the kind of rhetorical where I really expect an answer. I'm looking at you. Don't worry, I know you're at work wasting time, so just waste a little bit more time right here. Ok? Plus, if you're typing out an answer, it looks like you're working, rather than surfing around looking at dirty pictures. Or webcomics. Or dirty picture webcomics.
Anyways, I wanted to get into a few other things, but, I'm just going to ease myself back into this. Plus, if I mention all the other things right now, I'm more liable to forget to come back here and write more stuff. You do want me to write more stuff don't you?
Wait. Don't answer that question.
In case I didn't mention it, you really do look great. Nice seeing you again. Don't be a stranger.
regarding the twitters, i will say that i did not get it at all until i thought about using it for one specific topic. and now i lurve it, but just for that. i still want to punch people in the nose when they feed their tweets into lj or facebook or whatevs.
if I do get a twitter, I'd end up feeding it to facebook. However, I promise to only use it for good and not evil.
basically, I would guarantee* only to post the same sort of random crap I already do, but just going from twitter. I would never post "Eating pancakes now. Yummy!" or "I can post from the toilet!"
Ok, maybe I'd write the second one. But I would probably write that in facebook updates anyways. The pancakes one, never.
*guarantee not valid in all 50 states. Or in Canada. Maybe in Quebec.
I'm still here! ...But no one else is. :[
Yeah, where has everyone gone? Was it a vast tumblr migration? Twitter doesn't really seem like the same market. Livejournal uses way more characters.
Or is there some super secret new trendy site that I've missed, because I'm too old.
I think the ads kind of started everyone meandering to Tumblr, Twitter, and Facebook. But then, a month or so back, there was some sort of uproar about Livejournal allowing your Friends Only/locked posts to be cross-posted publicly to other sites. It only lasted about 24 hours; but it sent everyone running. It seems like people are split 50/50 between Tumblr and Dreamwidth. I'm on Tumblr, myself, but it's virtually impossible to find people on there! D:
A long time back, I created a tumblr, because I had heard it was going to be the new revolution.
I think I posted 2 entries, and have now forgotten the address for it.
I have never heard of dreamwidth. So that is probably going to be the place where the awesome people hang out. Except now I know of it. Don't worry awesome people, I won't check it out.
Livejournal is so weird. I miss Diaryland.
Man, Livejournal was my FIRST blog/networking tool. I've always had one... for, like, 11 years. I feel really lost on the other sites. Especially since Tumblr doesn't have a commenting feature! :[
diaryland was mine. I loved it. Andrew was awesome. The people there were great. I usedta be a contendah.
Now I just flail around the interwebs.
I felt really firmly rooted in Livejournal. Now I'm flailing too! ^^;
I'm a really horrible friend. I tend to not keep up to date.
Only so much space left in my brain, and as I've already noticed, any new bits of info tends to push out old bits. And I really need some of those old bits. Like. Where did I put my wallet.
I never understood twitter until I got an iPhone. Then all the pieces came together.
Of course people tweet, it's like instant messaging, forums and texting all rolled into one. I wasn't sure what to write about at first, but then I just started going for it.
I find people are tolerant of multiple tweets, so you can pretty much get a blog post in there before anyone will bitch about it.
