A New Year Begins

A new year of journaling has begun. I have to say, I was sad at the lack of posts. January has always been one of the busiest months for this community. Hopefully it means we are all writing. :)

This post really had no purpose other than my observation regarding lack of posts. I know. I'm silly.

I've been writing nearly every day, but my son loves electronics and always yanks my laptop off my lap or throws a fit if he can't touch the scanner, so I probably won't be showing off any pages in the near future. But he turns one on Wednesday, so I'm letting him get away with it.

I think LJ is slowing down a lot lately anyway, but I don't think it's directly related to people losing interest in the community - a lot of communities I've seen lately have been slow :) Fingers crossed we will have some new posts soon! <3

I almost wonder if someone should take the initiative to create an offsite forum about journaling so LiveJournals and non-Livejournalers alike can have somewhere to share our journals and post about them.

I got a MAHOOSIVE Journal after I finished my tiny one. Its actually rather daunting to fill! :)

Everything on lj seems to be a bit quieter these days. I'm busy working through a massive journal and I'll be posting that when I'm done with it.

I dream of a day when journaling gains more popularity and a website will be made, teeming with rabid writers clutching notebooks and pens, and we will be flooded with inspiration.

What I would like to do is get my camera out more, travel about with my journal, and take pictures of our (my journal and I) adventures. I'd find that enjoyable once winter ends.

I agree, I think it has something to do with the drift away from LJ.

I noticed that the community was quiet, too. I remember in 2008, I was on-vacation in Nepal at the time, and I just skimmed, because there were so many entries. The number of introductions were insane.

So, in some ways, it's nice, because the people that are here are dedicated to the community, but it's sad, because it feels like some of that energy and excitement is gone.
