First off, I "maintain" a blog at http://und1sk0.blogspot.com/.

It has not been seriously updated in many, many months.

I feel that the trend of blogging peaked probably around November of last year, and now it is well into a down grade from which it will not recover. I have no facts or figures, but I am confident that history will vindicate me.

That said, I really think that LiveJournal is uniquely positioned to experience a major uptick in usage (and by that I don't mean one LOL post after another, but serious usage, substantive postings and an increase of users).

Perhaps my optimism for LJ is based on a myopic nostalgia for communication fora of my youth. I believe that, 4chan notwithstanding, LJ is the biggest, best (and prettiest) BBS of which I've ever been a member.(*)

(*) Sorry, Tom Jackiewicz. UPT was fun, but it is no LJ.

i mentioned in a class yesterday concerning social trends that livejournal is becoming trendy again and patted myself on the back for staying with it for four + years. needless to say a few people ive encountered have had this very discussion as of late
