This week's featured article
LiveJournal, often abbreviated to LJ, is a social networking site and blogging platform where many fans post their fanfiction, meta, and other works, leave feedback, and have personal interaction. The website gained popularity in fandom in the early 2000s, which declined about a decade later. See also: Timeline of Fandom on LiveJournal.
It was created by Brad Fitzpatrick in 1999, sold first to Six Apart in January 2005, then to SUP in December 2007. Both sales were unpopular among many fans using LiveJournal for their fan activities. Brad Fitzpatrick left SixApart in early August 2007, shortly after Strikethrough and Boldthrough.
