- Your Journal -

5. Why do you have a Journal page? Do you have a Journal page for yourself, your friends, strangers to know you, and/or everyone? Well, for the things I write, here people can at least comment on them without too much searching - they don't have to stumble on my webpage. Also, its convenient as hell. I don't have any greater purpose.

6. Why did you pick LiveJournal (LJ) over another service or handwriting? Its the first one I heard about.

7. On a scale of 1-10 (10 being the highest) how well does your LiveJournal represent who you actually are? 8, I think. There are some things I don't get into, but I'm lightening up.

8. How do you think your LJ represents you the most...
Factually: To its logical absolute
Emotionally: Heh. See: "FUCK!!!!!"
Sexually: I guess fairly accurately - since there is no sexual life, LJ has no appearance of one from me.
Religiously: Only scratched the surface, although I don't hold anything back when I do talk about it.
Artistically: I haven't posted a great deal of my "artistic" writing here. That is something I would like to change. Although I do come up with ideas for things all the time.

9. How much about your life do you post to LJ? Sometimes it probably seems like I don't talk about my life at all. Those are the occasional posts. The rest are commentary.

10. On a scale of 1-10 how interesting do you think your own journal is to others? Like a 2 to most people, but much higher to the people who choose to read it.

11. From whom/how did you find out about LJ? sumthinboutmary

12. Has anyone ever joined LJ because of you? motionless, shycomputerguy, and thats all I know of.

13. How long have you been a member of LJ? January 10, 2001

14. How often do you post to LJ? When i have something to say I feel is worth saying....or if I haven't forgotten it yet.

15. What proportion of your posts are friends only? Not many. I really don't care if random people read my shit.

16. What is your favourite interest on LJ? I don't know, death metal I guess.

17. What is your favourite community on LJ? Top Five, I think. Funny stuff.

18. Have you ever learned anything new on LJ? Well, yeah. You read that much, you learn something.

19. Has anything on LJ ever caused you to establish, rethink, or even change your belief or position on something? Perhaps they have encouraged me to better support my stance on something, but I have yet to make a turnaround on anything.

20. How often do you respond / comment on other peoples journals? I will if I feel I have something worthwhile to say.

21. Do you prefer to write in your Journal, read other Journals, respond to others entries, or get responses to your entries? In order: Post, get comments, read, respond

22. What's the longest you've gone without posting to LJ since the day you signed up? Somewhere between 6 and 9 days early last year after I started it.

27. Have you ever specifically asked a question for people to reply to in your Journal? Of course, several times.

28. Have you ever tried to play the "trace yourself back through friends from a random LJ user"? Nope. I would if Kevin Bacon had a journal.

30. Have you ever lied/fibbed in your journal? Why on earth would I do that?

31. Have you ever had something mean said to you or been stalked, harassed, or got into an argument/flame war on LJ (or did it to someone else)? Briefly, with a huge waste of air that got suspended at least once.

32. Have you ever banned someone from your Journal? Nope.

33. Has LiveJournal had any significant impact on your life? In a sense. I haven't really altered my thinking since I got it, although perhaps my disdain for the general populace has increased. I have been exposed to more different types of people, for better or worse.

46. Are there any people's Journals (users / friends), communities, interests, or searches you frequent on LiveJournal that you don't or will not list in your user info page? The naked and not-so-naked communities. I'm a huge perv. (read: male)
