Should I, or shouldn't I?

Probably wouldn't have even thought of it if my debit card didn't change.

LJ emailed me a few days ago to say my paid account would auto-renew for another year on the 16th of the month. I would have probably forgotten about it until after the transaction went through and kept another year of paid status by default, but that debit card has expired and I have a new one. So I was weighing earlier whether to drop down to free status for the first time in quite a long time (maybe 4 or 5 years?), or renew once again. I know most of the benefits that I lose (ad-free, access to lots of user icons, polls) but there are probably more now that I don't know I'd be losing. Thoughts?

I vote no. It's easy to hide ads nowadays with an ad blocker, and all of the other features were really only fun and useful when LJ was a bustling metropolis, in my opinion.

I'm trying to re-bustle it all on my own, but probably too tall an order.

Off-topic: I am going to San Francisco next month for a conference. Are you in town mid-November? Let's hang out if so; I've never been to Berkeley!

Oh, go for it! Even with a paid account, we're cheap entertainment.

And besides, the investment might encourage you to post more often. :-p

Haha, I think my schedule has opened up enough that I can blog more often regardless. But we shall see. :)

I ended up not re-upping if only because all I do now is lurk. Maybe one day I'll get the urging to write a longer thing, but...Twitter! And comments on facebook shares! Sigh. I am the problem.
