(As an aside, I've been reflecting on how meaningless my LJ postings have recently been. I'm going to attempt to limit my posts to 3 or 4 a week in order to not let it become a chore to read or explore all the topics or website links I mention. I hate it when nobody comments. For example in the last 2 months i've received maybe 4 comments and posted about 50 posts. The only reason I sit and type posts on LJ is for other people and if I'm not achieving, then I should reconsider my motives.... (suggestions in the comments section of this post are implied))
