Is LiveJournal dead?
How many of you still have a paid LiveJournal account? Any reason why I should keep mine?


Edit: Thank you all very much for your input. 10 responses is pretty damned meaningful in and of itself. I'm going to set up my own blog, probably in Drupal, but I think I'll keep this as a paid account for one more year, then move over posts I want to keep, and set up automated cross-posting as a fun exercise and useful option. In a year I'll revisit it and possibly move over to a free account.

mizzlaurajean and I both have permanent accounts.

I have no real interest in the LJ alternative;, I comment on FaceBook but don't actually post.

That's at least one good reason to keep it one more year.

I have a permanent account, so I'm here until the Bitter End. And I dislike Facebook's system.

I never did get a permanent account, so I have the option of downgrading to the free ad-based option.

I am not keeping mine after it runs out next year. I may even delete it. This place is a graveyard.

It's not what it used to be, but there are still many folks here. I might set up my own block and then get it to automatically re-post to here.

There's still a community here. Not as big as it once was, but I find it satisfying. Facebook and Twitter just aren't for me...I blog on my website and cross-post here, but all the comments are here.

As for why you should keep it? That I don't know. How often do you come by? How many on your flist post regularly?

I think I will start blogging more often... but I've said that before :P

Oh, I hope you do. I've always enjoyed your posts. Smart, and thoughtful.

I had no idea there were so many of you.

I love live journal!

As with your beautiful husband, a good reason to keep the account one more year.

I still have my free account, and use it on a semi-regular basis.

I think that's the route I'll go in one more year.

do not have a paid account, but check here almost as often as other sites even if I don't post here as much as in the past.

I need to set up my own blog and then pull in feeds from all over to that site. Might be fun.

I have a paid account; just renewed it a few days ago. Never had the $$$ for a permanent account when they were offered and LJ is still worth the $18.42/year they charged me.

I use LJ for chatty/rambling posts and G+ for linky-type and short posts. Photos are so much easier to post to G+, I'm tending to put them there.

I do savor your presence here; would hate to be even more out of touch.

I'm going to give it one more year and see. I do need to get back to blogging.

I do. It's not particularly expensive.

Agreed, though I might dump the "extra userpics" option.
