Silver Hat2

(no subject)

My friend cuboz has decided to commit more serious thoughts to LJ. I applaud him for having the courage to share some of these deep thoughts with us. Which bring up the thought about "us" at LJ and who we are and what we want LJ to be.

cuboz writes that Facebook is full of all "fluffy" thoughts and silly things. People ridicule serious subjects or ignore them completely. This certainly sets us LiveJournal participants apart from those at Facebook. If LiveJournal is to flourish we must have content. Perhaps this is a direction that we need to be working toward.

I know that serious writing can be draining but it can also be rewarding. The LiveJournal platform with longer content is ideal for putting down thoughts. I would really like to see more of that.

Everyone has their own style with some people writing on lighter subjects. My journal tends to be more travel related but I do try to share things of importance. If I see an article interesting enough to share its link, I also write my thoughts about it making it a more personal connection and hopefully making it interesting to you who read my content.

Share yourself with us. You will finding it rewarding.
