Soooooo... LiveJournal, huh?

2010 saw a slip in my blogging due to the advent of that thing called Twitter. And the less I 'jouraled' the less I actually READ LiveJournal. Facebook was just way to rediculous to keep up with.Twitter screams by at the speed of light, so on 12/30, after maxing out at 500 entries not read, I'd realized one of the reasons LJ slipped into the "Yeah, I'll get to that later" category was because it, too, was pretty overwhelming and packed with way too much information.

So I did a bit of house cleaning, eliminating about half of the people, most of the communities, and nearly all of the feeds I was following. For now. Once I get back into the swing of things, I'll likely start slowing re-adding people/things. But if you were one of those caught in the purging, I apologize. There's just too much going on in my life right now for me to be able to keep up with so many folks. At this point, 99% of my follow list is people I've actually met, or have known for more than 10 years (yes there are people I've not met who I've known for more than 10 years -- something needs to be done about THAT).

And as a fresh start, I dropped the $14 to rename the journal to clayrobeson.

Anyway, here's to 2011, and me actually writing more than the occasional post. The other blogs that I 'keep' (puppets, food and soon to be photos) will all also re-post here as well. And all of this will get reposted to Facebook. (Yes, Facebook, I still miss MOST of what goes on there, sorry.)

    So on a POSITIVE note (which I seem to share so few of recently), I've been seeing a trainer for the last year or so. Twice a week, 30 minutes a…

    I may or may not have just scared off a raccoon that was outside my window with a lightsaber flashlight.
