Every time permanent accounts become available, I debate getting one.  Hindsight being 20/20 and all, I should have gotten one when they were $100 way back when.  Then, I was more concerned about whether the website would last.  This was back when good content on the internet was still sparse and to pay for it was a strange idea.  I had already taken the plunge and paid for my account because I liked LiveJournal and wanted to help support it (still do).  But a permanent account.  Today at $150.  That’s over 8 years to pay for itself.  I don’t doubt that LJ will still be around in eight years.  But will I still be on LJ in eight years?  Keeping a journal has always been a sketchy thing for me.  Doesn’t work on paper, no matter how much I try.  Here, my entries are often sparse.  I have a tendency to tell things over and over in my head until I’m so tired of them I don’t want to write about them here.  (I should probably work on immediacy in my life, eh?)  Then again, I never thought my LJ would last this long…
