Cooler weather. Currently it's only 77˚F and partly cloudy. We begin to approach green autumn.

Yesterday I wrote 1,017 words on Agents of Dreamland.

And I'm feeling bad about how often these entries are so very, very short, how my LJ entries of late don't bear much resemblance to the more meaty entries of years past. But the truth is that readership here bottomed out a long time ago, and it's hard to motivate myself to write on LJ at length. I'll likely keep the journal going, out of habit, and because I think there are interesting days ahead. Maybe another year, maybe a little more.

I'm not quite awake. Seven hours and all the drugs, they leave me groggy and turned about.

TTFN,
Aunt Beast

I think it was, very much so. Blogging required a good deal of focus and a commitment of time from the one keeping the journal and all those reading. No way that can compete with the immediacy and ease of Facebook, Twitter, Imgur, Tumblr, etc. I'm pretty sure blogging hit its peak sometime in the early 2000s.

I think there might be a generational gap in there. I'm wondering if all the people who used to be so into blogging actually migrated to the easier things like Facebook, twitter, etc. or if they just disappeared. A wide variety of ages use Facebook but some of the other services seem to be the domain of the Millennials. I'm not sure the tl:dr folks would have taken an interest in long format blogging anyway. Where the actual bloggers went, is what I want to know.
