Two years ago I posted on Facebook about how much I still missed livejournal, even all these years later. Not long after my time on LJ I joined another online community with a bulletin board type format and a culture of long form posting and personal reflection. Between the two I spent nearly twenty years regularly writing and interacting with others. I left that community in 2020. The things that would need to change for me to go back haven’t changed, but, still, I miss it.
Glad to see you writing. I resonate with missing those online consistent communities- they did fill a space /make a space. But maybe you are solving more than you realize right now
