Damn kids better get off my lawn

You know, I always knew that the LJ world had a pretty young demographic. It's hard not to get that impression when you run across enough angsty teen journals all about how Melissa told Brad that Cindy pulled the train in the boys locker room last week. I just never realized that the average is as low as it is. This is what I found when I took a look at the LJ stats:

Cripes. Talk about being in the tail of the bell curve. The saddest part of the whole thing is that I was already well on the declining slope when I eve started blogging here. If I had spent some more time thinking about it before just jumping in, I probably would have picked a site that would have better grown with me across demographics. Instead, I just end up looking more and more like the creepy old guy on a kid's site. At least there are another 100k or so people my own age on here, but that's a small drop in the bucket compared to the infestation of kids. Hell, there are almost as many 14 year olds running around.

Oh well, que sera sera. It's not like I'm going to try to pack things up and run off to blogger or blogspot or something at this point. Besides, I had that momentary bout of insanity earlier this year and bought that perm membership and everything. I have to stick around for at least another half a decade or so to make my money back, right?
