athene (whom I never talk to anymore, 'cause I suck) gave me an invite code and helped me set up my LJ April 1, 2002 (though I didn't actually post until April 4), so my LJ contains records of over ¾ of my college career and of course my afterlife thusfar.
I just celebrated 2500 entries a few weeks ago and didn't have much to say then and still don't.
I've mentioned truepenny's manifesto just about every anniversary. It's good for me to remind myself (and be affirmed in my) that I'm LJ-ing primarily for my own self.
I'm currently being read by somewhere in the vicinity of 100 people, and I go back and forth between "why ever do people wanna read me?" and "why do more people not read me -- and more importantly, why do people not comment more?" As I have been more consistently busy I have gained increased empathy for the skimming.
My one-year anniversary entry was entry #733.
2 year anniversary post: #1,342 [609 entries that year]
3 year anniversary post: #1,932 [590 entries that year]
4 year anniversary post: #2,585 [653 entries that year]
(My first year had the most entries? How did that happen?)
Of her upcoming anniversary, sangerin just wrote, "I'm going to celebrate the anniversary the same way everyone else does: offer ficlets." This practice is new to me, and definitely not something I'm down with, as I still owe people icon drabbles.
