for those who read my journal: how old are you?


icon: "curious (my face, looking straight forward with one eyebrow up and a sideways smile, head tilted down a little)"

bunnika and I were talking about the olden days of LJ (when we were about the average age on the site I think) and realized it's been 10 years. Now I'm wondering if LJ has aged in its average user in my little corner, answer pls!

Poll #2001991 age of people who read my LJ (only I can see your responses)

in what range does your age fall?

And I think I started when I was 12, so it's been 12 years.

I started this LJ at the age of 20 and I'm now 35. 15 years. Sobering.

(I still have the email...somewhere...from the friend of mine who got me started on it, saying that her friend had created a blogging platform and was opening it up to others, which is what led to me starting it...)

Looking at the results, the ages are older than I would've thought - but of course, it makes perfect sense; I've been on LJ eleven years now (not counting my first really emo account), and people who were 18-22 back then (like me) are (again, like me) 18-32 now, and people who were 23-27 are now 33-37. (Though there were a lot of people in their mid thirties on LJ too, IIRC.)

I love how my age bracket is the last one. It's as if after 48, you're mostly dead.

on communication, social justice, intimacy, consent, friendship & other relationships, spirituality, gender, queerness, & dreams. Expect to find curse words, nudity, (occasionally explicit) talk of sex, and angry ranting, but NEVER slurs or sexually violent language. I use TW when I am aware of the need and on request.
