friends poll

In my lj profile here I have this bit about how people should take my annual friends list poll so I get them in the right friends groups - but now apparently "annual" means "every five years" because I haven't had a fresh one since 2015! And that year I put a lot into making new friends on livejournal, which was great... now I have a ton of friends who I don't think have logged in since 2015. The lj friends lists just seem unmanageable!

So a poll it is... it's a test to see who is still alive, who am I missing, who should I be reading. I really don't unfriend anybody, I just add new ones, and make more of an effort to read the journals of people who comment. that works for a while.

Speaking of comments, feel free to comment on this post with your thoughts on the "state of livejournal". How is your friends list? How do you keep your feeds interesting? Any great new community recommendations for me? Why is rose the trendy color this year? It's really kind of peach, isn't it?
