Think livejournal is "dying"? Want to build it back up?

siderea has come up with what she thinks is the optimal formula for LJ posts to build community:

Every month, post AT LEAST:
2 personal diary entries ("this is what I did")
2 "bleg"s (a question inviting response / provoking discussion)
12 pointers (reposts of interesting content, probably with a bit of text. This post is a pointer.)
1 op ed (a post written by you, but not ABOUT you. Review, etc.)

I'm not so good at this, as I haven't posted more than once a month for a year or two. Well, having kids completely changed how I use my time, LJ included. :)
