A Missed Anniversary

I missed it this year, but Saturday the 5th marked seven years for me on LiveJournal!

I'm not as active here as I used to be, but it seems like most people aren't. I do miss the thriving, vital community LiveJournal used to enjoy before all the advertisements and Russian spambots took over, but I think there's also been a natural migration toward Facebook and Twitter. (After years of grousing, I finally gave in and joined Facebook last year, but I continue to steadfastly resist Twitter, which seems even more gratuitously fatuous than Facebook is, if one can imagine such a thing.)

But happy anniversary, LiveJournal! You were my first dedicated public online presence, and it's true what they say: you always remember your first.
