It's become increasingly common for me to miss posts of late, and I haven't been able to pay much attention to the daily maintenance of the community. Truth is, I have a lot on my plate at the moment, and LiveJournal just isn't a part of my daily routine any more, and with everything else I'm concentrating on at the moment, I just don't have the time or will to try and force myself to include the community in my routines.
For a while, I had no issues with it, but now it's become clear that I have to force myself, which means it will become a chore. It's not that I don't enjoy the prospect, it's just that I've realised I just can't incorporate maintenance, posting, and chasing after people into my daily hither and thither - the idea of forcing myself to do it, and therefore turning it into a chore, doesn't sound appealing. My work is already a chore which I hate, and I have to do that for nine hours a day, five days a week. I really don't want to turn this into something I 'have' to do, rather than love to do.
That said, I'm looking at stepping down as a poster and maintainer of the community, and would like someone to take over. Naturally, it can't be just anyone - I'd prefer someone who can do the place justice, and do for it now what I did for it a while back: really invigorate the place and make it a fun place again.
Anyone who is interested in taking over should email me at shirosenshi at gmail dot com with their expression of interest. I'd like to know what plans you have for the community, how much time you can spare, and what your next steps will be following taking over.
I'd like to thank everyone for their support while I ran the place, and apologise for my lack of posting of late. As I said, it's better to step out gracefully than just disappear and leave you all wondering what's happening.
