Why LJ is dead as a dodo for me

1. Most of the friends who were on LJ have moved on.
2. All the comments, debates and conversations have ceased. I find FaceBook a place where all this happens now.
3. Some days, I am not able to even open LJ. If I do, I am sometimes not able to post. If I can, I am not able to see friends' posts, or comment on them. Sometimes I can't even reply to the rare comment that someone leaves on my post.
4. I think that spammers are the only visitors I have. My stats have recorded 190 unique visits yesterday, 160 today. ONE comment, and 80 spam comments (in Japanese, mostly, nowadays.)

I'll still continue to post (I must say, I am able to post most of the time now, and occasionally see friends' posts, more often than earlier.)...but LJ...the "live" has gone out of it for me. What's the use of a place where all the action, and the interaction, has gone?

The sleeping angel

Throughout the evening, after she returned from daycare, she troubled me. Didn't want to wash her hands or feet...didn't want to start, or finish, her dinner...kept pushing me to see how far I'd go...I was exhausted by the time her father took her upstairs to brush her teeth and go to sleep. Between her and her baby brother, the noise level was enormous, too...

A while later, I went upstairs, My heart melted to see a little angel, fast asleep, with a toy bear clutched tightly...oh, my lovely little one, you can push me to the limits, but there are no limits to my love for you...
