How did you come to start your LJ?
After finding gothic_babes
a long time ago I started looking at what other people were using LJ for. I first started a pen and paper version only starting this thing proper when I got my own computer.
How did you find your first friends?
They mostly found me. I was in an add_me community for a time where I picked up a few.
Are those first friends still on your FL?
Well they haven't deleted their journals.
How long have you been on LJ?
Created on 2007-01-03 at 09:46 so over 5 years.
Do you have more friends or communities on your FL?
Do you do a lot of friends cuts?
No I've only done one.
What do you like in an LJ friend?
Someone who I have something in common with so we have something to talk about.
What do you dislike?
People who will post one thing and then a little while later will post something that completely contradicts it. One of them is a lie but it's hard to tell which. Also if they can't be bothered to keep their story strait then I can't be bothered to care.
What would make you unfriend someone immediately?
A person would have to do something seriously wrong for me to do that. I have low standards for friendship.
Have you been caught up in a lot of LJ drama?
Twice about abortion.
Do RL friends and family members know you have a journal on LJ?
My parents and two friends know. But my friends don't know what my LJ name is.
Do you also have Facebook and if so, what do you prefer – LJ or FB?
Yes, LJ is far and away better than FB.
What about Twitter?
Do you blog on any other sites?
How often do you check in on LJ?
At least once a day.
What do you rarely or never post about?
Why don’t you post about that?
I don't feel I know enough about it to say much.
Have you ever thought about deleting your journal?
Have you ever changed your username?
Why did you choose your current username?
I took it from a series of superhero stories that I enjoyed years ago. After trying several other names (like Hydrogen Guy) that were rejected by LJ I gave SB a try and I've grown to love it
If you’re looking for new friends, how do you find them?
I don't really look. I probably should since it would be nice to have more friends.
Are you taking new people on to your Friends List just now?
Finally, tell us the reasons why you keep an online journal.
This is a place for me to express myself and connect with others.
