The long, slow, death of Livejournal continues

I blame myself, of course. Here are my visitor counts from 2011 and 2012, taken from the statistics page

Meanwhile, a quick look at my Google Analytics tells me that compared to last December, this December is 13% down in visits (5,100 versus 5,700) and 33% down in pageviews (10,100 vs 13,400).

You'll note that I'm not offering any solutions here. I do remember a time when more people were posting about what they were reading, playing, watching, and generally doing, but I assume that the pall wore off for most people, or they moved to somewhere where people had real names, and they could talk to their family about it without being embarassed at having a username of "EvilCow666"*. Either that, or you're all sharing pictures of cats over on Tumblr.

*Which is in use at various points on the internet, but not on LJ, so I feel relatively safe using it as an example.
