There's little that makes you feel so invisible on LJ as to write a heartfelt post and get no comments.
I'm sorry. I do relate. There've been times when i've reached out on here and really couldn't believe the crickets. Of course, that's largely outnumbered by the times when i reached out and did get many many supportive and thoughtful responses. Overall, i'd call it win, but it still makes it tough when that one key post goes by.
I think it's harder nowadays because of LJ's languishing status. There are so few people still even reading over here, it's that less likely that they see it. Additionally (at least in my case), i'm posting less often too, so when that heartfelt moment comes and manifests itself in a rare post, it's that much tougher to take the crickets.
FWIW, i try to read what i can, but i'm also spending a lot less time online in general these days, so a lot of stuff goes by skimmed or (due to long login lapses) missed entirely. I do miss LJ's heyday, but i'm also glad for those of us who are still enjoying what's left of it!
