I feel a little disconnected right now, LJ-wise. I have these grand plans, not so much for writing posts, which isn't a huge deal, but for being more involved with other people's LJs. I had a post-vac resolution to post more comments on my flist and I'm still trying to do that. But I'm finding it difficult to find the time.
I work full-time and I can't do LJ while I'm at work. I do log on at lunch sometimes, but there's usually only time to skim. By the time I get home, there are a lot of posts to go through and I'm usually busy in the evenings. As well, by then, if there are interesting discussions, they are usually quite well-discussed and anything I would add would be along the lines of "me too". (I think living in the Pacific time zone contributes to this.)
So I'm not sure what to do. I want to be more involved with other people here. I suppose I could ruthlessly cut my flist so I'd have less reading time, but I so do not want to do that. It's all I can do to keep from adding new people all the time.
And of course, all of this takes time that I might otherwise spend writing/vidding/reading fic. Aaargh!
(I think this is why it took me so long to get on LJ in the first place.)
How do other people do it? How do you keep up? How do you cope when you can't?
