LJ Idol Results and Social Network Ponderings

Thanks to everyone who helped me make it into the Top 8 of LJ Idol, especially the very wonderful oneonthefence, who was my Champion this week, picking up the literary lance on my behalf. Now, for Hell Week: five pieces to write while staffing Otakon! Fun!

On a different but somewhat related subject, a friend of mine made it clear to me today that he considers LJ to be outdated, as outre as MySpace! How do people feel about that? Is it "uncool" to blog nowadays? Are there more "fashion-forward" blogging sites than LJ? Or are Facebook, Twitter, and the million other sites people keep bugging me to join the death of blogging?
