…a long time ago, before the world had heard about Facebook, a writers’ group to which I belonged chose to use Live Journal to put up some of our experiments and exercises. (remember Live Journal? if not, don’t say anything…)
Over the years, I met a number of people through LJ, and a number of people I met came to know me from my writing there. We all had different reasons for spending time on the site, but the connections were very personal. Very authentic and somehow more substantial than a lot of the interactions that happen now on Facebook and other social media.
