For years Livejournal was the end all, be all of my online journaling. Then with the onset of the social networking boom, there seemed to be this great diaspora of people leaving LJ to hang out on whatever flavor of social network most appealed to them.
When I first set up Twitter reposting, it seemed a great way to update once and push to all the various social pockets and tide pools that had sprung up.
Now that things have settled down a little bit, I think what has happened is that each of the social networks has established its own identity: Twitter for short, impulsive communications; Facebook as a sort of catch all, dynamic personal profile, MySpace for endless spam from bands, personal Blogs for those that are serious about their online writing, and Livejournal for long form diary entries.
I'm hoping by pulling the plug on the Twitters it'll force me to go back to using LJ for its original purpose, and have the nice side effect of reducing the redundant content for my friends that already get the Twitters elsewhere.
Let's see if I actually start writing again.
