A good idea  
Hello Everyone.

I think that this is a good idea to promote LJ more in the UK.  I am from the UK and have been on LJ for about four years now (if anyone wants to add me please do).  I was just wondering if blogging was as popular in the UK as it is in, say, the USA, especially with the advent of the likes of Twitter.

Take care everyone.

I agree. Besides, Brits tend to write better.

Haha! Loving the generalisation.

Re: HELLO
Perhaps you should have advertised it better then? This is the first I've heard of a UK community. Of course I only got into LJ because some friends of mine were on here, post infrequently at best, and generally don't have much of interest happening in my life to blog about.... but I am here.

Well if they gave us the same level of service as the US... Say... a Voice Post number that doesn't disconnect after a minute, maybe it would be more popular.

Heh. My LJ just turned five years old. AFAIK, yes, blogging is as popular here proportionally as it is in the USA - there are just less of us from whom to take a population sample.

Everyone loves a good moan in the UK. Blogging would take off very quickly. :)

Obviously the UK is physically smaller than the US, but I would say blogging is very popular here.

I have been on LJ for 8.5 years now.. during which time i've graduated uni, got married, moved 180 miles down south, had a daughter, moved back up north, had another daughter, changed jobs and met some great friends, who i would not normally have ever met due to locations.

I think it's definitely popular here, although I know more people who'd blog on say MySpace or the Blogspot than on here.

Besides we've had livejournal_uk for ages now xD It's not just a UK community, it's a WIN community.
Yes, but you're fabulous.natterfly on November 28th, 2008 04:24 pm (UTC)
It's not just a UK community, it's a WIN community.

Hee. Agreed.

One of the things I like about LJ is the internationalism of it - I do have quite a lot of UK friends though. However I did not go out of my way to find British friends, I just looked around for friends, full stop.

Of course most younger Brits use Facebook or MySpace etc. - if you are one of the large community of middle-aged ladies, as I am, there are quite a lot of Brits on LJ - it seems to be our community of choice!

There's plenty of younger Brits on here too! I'm 23 and have been using LJ since I was 19. I've met many people around my age from the UK on here! :)

I just started using Lj a few months back... I tend to read the other UK community though...

There are plenty of us on here! :)

Hahaha. Oh wow.

Seriously, there's no wonder we have a reputation for being uptight. I think a few people need to chill the fuck out and realise livejournal_uk isn't on every UK'ers friends list, and by the looks of some of these comments, it comes as no surprise.

There's a world of difference between saying I'm Not Joining Your Geographic Proximity Association Because You Are All Mental And Like Boots And Writing Angry Diatribes Against, Oh, Everything (which is fair enough) and I Am Shocked, Shocked I Say, That In The Eight Years Of LiveJournal I Have Never Been Able To Join A Geographic Proximity Association Because I Didn't Actually Bother Looking For One, though.
