Two questions:
Who still reads this LJ?
Do comments still matter? (in the staying "friends" sort of way)

I'm trying to figure a way to follow y'all better but haven't been succeeding. Real life is busy. :)

1. Me!
2. Not to me, but they might to others.

I'm mostly on Facebook now with my own status updates. However, I know that is not for everyone.

I still read this whenever I have time!

I still do. Comments are nice because there is no way to see/track if anyone has read your post. But it is harder and harder to post on LJ. I still read lots of community posts that I am a part of. And I post on them more then I do individual posts on my own personal LJ.

I still read.

I read, I just don't comment much. No offense at it, just as much as I don't really know what to say half the time about it. I'm sure the feeling is mutual.

And yeah, real life does the same to me. Most of the reason why I keep updating LJ anyway is for the sake of a lady friend who is always curious.

I still read, even if I don't comment (or post) too often.

If I didn't read you, I'd take you off my FL. So the fact that you're still there means I read.

Comments have never mattered to me - just because someone wants to read doesn't make them obligated to comment, and honestly I'd rather people not comment at all than comment simply because they feel they should. I have some friends who are very commenty, and others who aren't, and that's fine, everyone's different. I certainly don't measure friendship by it.

I read via the magic of RSS.

That inherently makes comments more difficult, but clearly, not impossible.

I read. Comment when I feel I have something productive to add. For me, it's a decent way to keep in touch at least a little.

1) I read
2) Comments only matter if the post is about something I'd think you care about and have good input on, and then you don't comment.

I read but I've felt for a while that this forum is simply dying and I haven't come up with a good way to replace it yet.

I still read, too.
assfingers From: assfingers Date: April 3rd, 2012 05:44 pm (UTC) (Link)
I read and expect daily comments to my multitude of posts.

1) I read it

2) Not really. The people I'm closest with that I met through here...well, some of them don't even use LJ anymore. If friendship is important, then it's important enough to make an effort to sustain outside of this little world.

1. Yes! This is the only place that I follow what you're up to (except for random Twitter updates)
2. I rarely comment, but I can see how getting none would make you feel like no one is listening. Chicken and egg, I suppose.

Still reading! Still commenting. feel free to comment, correct, or come over for scotch. :D
smed From: smed Date: April 12th, 2012 03:03 pm (UTC) (Link)
I read. Not often but perhaps every few months I drop in for an update.
I rarely comment though. It keeps my creepy stalker status current...

... oh fuck, now I've gone and ruined that...
