I'm really spoiled by Facebook sometimes. It lives in a little top menu bar drop down icon on my work computer, so any thought or link that I care to share is just a couple clicks away from my broad Facebook friends list. I wonder if I would be more apt to post to LJ if there was a menu bar icon for this service.

I also really like Facebook like buttons. Many times when I'm reading LJ I want to acknowledge that I like a friend's post, but I don't really have anything to contribute to the discussion. I don't just want to comment with "Like" so I just don't post anything.

I do like the long form nature of LJ, and I have fond memories of the community of friends I had here before Facebook created the great LJ diaspora.

I return back home here to LJ several times a week to catch up on my remaining friends and RSS feed posts. And I try to make a post here every month or two at least, though usually the post is about posting to LJ (like this post is).

Between LJ posts, you are welcome to see what else I'm up to via my Facebook account: https://www.facebook.com/drewan, or via my Google+ account: https://plus.google.com/u/0/100962651932024859944/posts

I'm with ya! I've always preferring blogging over Facebooking, but it's so darn *easy*. Still, I figure people with a passing interest get the 5-second blurb, but those people who want the real dirt can come to my LJ. :)

You detail why I don't like FB as much ... Just being able to click on a button instead of really engaging is unsatisfying for me. I like to be more fully engaged. I'm still writing my essays, though I feel they've been too focused on work and health. Most of the people who responded in the past, still respond. I would be nice to actually see ya'll in person. I've been living in the Twin Cities for close to four years and there are several people whom I saw before I lived here, I haven't encountered at all.
