A friend was wondering so...

tumblr-logo-icon-7.png I thought I'd mention that there is a new-ish friending community, 2017 Revival, that I have joined because, frankly, while those who have remained on my friends-list throughout the ages are cherished, many others have moved on. The problem, I guess, with mainly being involved from the beginning with fandom and when that peters out, not entirely but some,not really knowing where to go next. My journal had become a little too one-sided. Me talking, no one listening. Can't help but wonder...why bother.
          So, I am now making new friends, those who post more about life, politics, art and such, and that, in turn, is making me pretty darn happy. Change is good. New friends are always good. So, just letting you know in case you are of a need to change things up a little too :)

One last thing. Livejournal has provided a cute little heart 'LIKE' button on the comments page of every post so that, if you don't feel you have anything to comment, you can click the heart 'LIKE' button and then people who are like me who get very very sad when no one comments to their painstakingly crafted, or not, posts can at least get 'LIKED'.And 'LIKED' is good. Very very good.
          I would like to thank connorblond for making me awae of this feature which, until he 'LIKED' something I'd posted, I had no idea even existed.
     Easy frickin' peasy. Yes?

I discovered long ago that friendships, whether through the internet or in person, are like everything else in life... ever changing. Sometimes you make a friend and it's for life. The connection is never broken. Sometimes you make a friend and they disappear, either slowly over time or suddenly. That doesn't make them any less valuable than your lifelong friends. Each person you interact with makes a mark on your life. I value every one of them. I agree with you 100% that making new friends in another forum is a good thing and I'm glad you found one you like. Never doubt that there are folks here that care about you too, including myself. I often post and receive very few comments if any, but I can tell by my Stats page that my posts are being viewed by plenty of folks and I completely understand that they don't always have the time to respond. And sometimes there just isn't anything to add to what is in the post. I'll have to check out that LIKE feature. I knew nothing about it too. And yes, I'm a faithful Facebooker. I often simply click Like when reading a post just so that my friend or family member will know I've read what they posted, whether I have any comment to add or not. Thank you for the info. Warm hugs, Grammy

All you say is just right. What I guess I'm trying to do now is develop friendships more based on something more substantial like RL & less transitory like fandom. Although I miss it greatly. I love to write and wrapping that around a pre-existing universe was so much fun :)

I was unaware of the stats feature. Your comment sent me on a discovery quest. Looks interesting! I will have to check that feature out more. See? Always educating each other. Perfect!
