Or maybe it won't work. Let's see!

Last week, LJ came under attack and was down for three days. I missed it horribly; I went over to Dreamwidth, but it just wasn't the same. When LJ came up, several of my good friends posted to say how much they missed LJ, but several also posted to wonder whether this wasn't really the end for LJ, whether they wouldn't just move wholesale to DW or Twitter or Google+, for so few people post now and so few comment.

Let's make this week Show LJ Some Love week! If a friend posts to LJ, and you've read that post, comment. Even if it's just a silly three-word comment going 'that's really hilarious!', 'your boss sucks' or 'get a divorce', show that the community's still here. I know I have many friends on my list whom I do read every day, whose lives I do know about and care about, but whom I never comment on, because it doesn't occur to me, or because I don't think I have the time, or because I'm on my iPhone and typing is a pain. This week, that's going to change. Are you in?

I support this plan! And I'll be back at posting some time this week, too.

HOORAY! In that case, you have to pass my meme on by posting it TOO *wheedle*

Aww, lovely! This is an ace idea, and hello! I am reading. FWIW, I have no plans to move wholesale to DW or elsewhere, and while it was down I realised how much I missed it.

It was fun bolting off to DW for the day, wasn't it? - like running off for a secret smoke outside the party - but let's not do it again. Post my meme! Spread the LJ love!

Go on then - it'll mean I must get round to writing up what we got up in that Scarborough last weekend.

Ooh yes do! Bet it was more fun than what I did in Scarborough the one time I went, viz give a public talk on my PhD after travelling on rail replacement from Bling after a twelve-hour work day...

Yes! Me too! But I am also glad that DW was there to provoke you into posting pics of your palace.

Hooray! And I haven't commented on your journal in a ridiculously long time, so that is most definitely one of my new LJ-loving resolutions.

Hooray! But I am not surprised, because you are LJ Love personified.

I did consider setting up on DW, but by the time I got there it was slow as buggery, having been besieged by loads of LJ refugees backing up their journals. Made me realise it wasn't quite equipped for the occasion.

Do you need an invite code? I have several spare.

Much appreciated

Hooray! There are several posts of yours that I really meant to comment on, but never got around to. No more! Although possibly commenting IN PERSON IN MANCHESTER will substitute once the meme has passed...

I would be in, but we leave for Bayreuth tonight :( I will be back on Thursday/Friday, though, and I thoroughly support this drive for reminding people about LJ's brilliance! (And will try to post a variant of this meme over on my journal before we leave.)

Bayreuth! SO JEALOUS! That is an excuse and a half for abandoning LJ for a bit. Photos when you come back, please!

Eek, not a chance! If I had to actually comment on everyone whose journals I read it would take so long that instead I would have to stop reading them!

I will however make a post reassuring people in general that I'm still around and reading, which is possibly the best I can offer.

Resisting memes is a sign of character! Do not fret! But it is good to know you are reading x

I have no reading filters. If a person's on my LJ flist, and I'm reading LJ at all, I'm reading them.
