So I launched a "friendstarter," asking for 20 real life actual pals to commit to going back on the air on LiveJournal. Ironically I did this on Facebook, because that is where everybody is, and has been for some time now.
It looks like it's happening.
So I'm opening up all the disused rooms in my LJ and throwing out the stuff that was abandoned there years ago.
Remember when it was tacky to unfriend anybody on LJ and people wound up setting up filters for who they REALLY read and... yeah, we're all grownups now and most of us aren't even here. So I'm going through my nine friggin' pages of friends and pruning out anybody I honestly just don't remember anymore. In the hopes that my actual feed, rather than my special "mustread" feed, will be something I can really consider grappling with.
I'm pretty excited about this. I'm a little amazed to be excited about having to use the godawful joke of a mobile interface that LJ offers... or rather, to just have to wait until I'm at a proper lappy, which is probably healthier anyway. But apart from that, excited.
