LJ stats

I looked at my stats today and liked the repeated numbers. Look at all the threes! also, my comments-received finally outstripped my comments-posted. *sigh* I liked having it ahead!

Share yours? (please just copy paste the text if you do so that the comment thread is accessible to screen readers, or describe your image) I am very curious to see all of them in one place to see if there are any patterns *smiles hopefully*

I think people don't realise I've been here so long because of how I started. started LJ to keep in touch with local people and to swap funny stories with them. It was a 'cool' thing to do at the time and I discovered I loved it, so stayed longer than anyone else. I didn't seek out people who lived in different countries, as I didn't know how to find them. Eventually I stopped posting in 2011 after a gradual drop off. No-one was reading and I just felt isolated.

In 2014 I was upset after being dumped and I went back on to read some of my old stuff and had a look around. I asked around and was told I could find people in friendzys, and was shown where one was, where I found you, amongst other people!

As for tags, I never used them until recently. I always thought they seemed superfluous and enjoyed the challenge of trying to remember when a certain thing had happened if I wanted to go back and read it. But you and many others use tags so effectively that I began to see the benefit of it and decided to try it. I try to keep them as overall terms though, rather than being too specific as I would like lots of related entries under 1 tag to 'follow a story' as it were, rather than ultra-specific tags that only contain one or two entries.
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.
