Someone once described LJ to me as online group therapy but I really think it's so much more than that.

When I first joined LJ it was just as a bit of fun. Little did I know that I'd wind up with over 200 people on my flist, some of whom I am just as close to as I am to my RL friends. I have travelled all over the world to meet some of my LJ friends, which I think is an indication of how much they mean to me.

For a while LJ was just about posting fandom stuff, but it's more than that now. I can talk about all the stuff that's going on in my life and there is usually at least one person out there who has been through what I'm going through and is able to offer advice.

Is it sad that I can't imagine not having LJ? Maybe, but I don't care.

Sadly it seems I am more of a receiver

Posted: 37,057 - Received: 52,918

I don't know why really. I do try and comment in other peoples journal wherever I can. Ah well, I clearly suck. LOL!

Edit: [livejournal.com profile] danceswithgary has pointed out that a lot of the received comments will be feedback on my fic and icons. That possibly explains it, although I do try and reply to all comments I get.

Edit2: Replies to comments aren't counted apparently so that solves the mystery I think

It would be easier to ask me who I met outside of LJ. LOL!

I honestly can't remember what my first user pic was. I suspect it will have been something Buffy related.

My current default icon is this one. It's a cartoon version of me that I made using this nifty little site. I just figured it was something nice and simple for my non-fannish posts (not that I make many of those) and people can see sort of what I look like.

[livejournal.com profile] padfoot_uk first showed me LJ and talked me into getting an account. [livejournal.com profile] flickums gave me an invite code - because you needed one back then.

There wasn't much of a fandom presence on LJ back then so I mostly used it for posting quizes and memes, with the occasional post about what was going on in my life.
