Over a decade on LJ - how did THAT happen?

I meant to post about this last month, but I forgot/lost track/got distracted by something shiny, take your pick.

As of Oct 17th, I've been on here 12 years. In the World Outside the Crystal, that's merely a smitch past a decade. A fair stretch, but not that much. Here, in the land of the internets, however, it's like a millennia. An eon even. The Epoch Of Live Journal. *snicker*

Well, it's not like its really any big deal. Other than there are cool people here on LJ that I am still in contact with only because were all still on LJ, and I'm glad for that. I hope everyone sticks around for another decade and some. Even if we don't all yabber as much as we once did, what with jobs and or kids and or other commitments that cut into our LJ / fandom / squee time, it's just really nice to know that you are all still there. So thanks for that.

Yeah. Okay, that's all, nothing to see here, move along.

Wow! Twelve years? I've only been here for nine. It'll be ten next May. My, how time flies when we're having fun. \o/

I joined LJ to participate in the 2008 SGA Big Bang...so only what? Six years for me. Six of the best, life-changing years of my life, almost everything of which is a direct result of being in on LJ and in fandom. :-) Wouldn't trade it for anything.

*nods*

Also, I personally Facebook incredibly annoying and hate all the ads; LJ gives me the same connection that some folks love FB for, but without all the extraneous crap.

ALSO FANFIC. What's not to love?

Congrats on the LJ-versary! I hit ten years this past March. Hard to believe it's been that long!

Dude, weren't you in the middle of writing papers and school madness 10 years ago? I vaguely remember thinking that you were insane because you did full time school and still wrote full length stories. It was nuts.

I am glad you are still here!

Ten years ago I was finishing up my masters and taking all the tests needed to get into law school/grad school. And I was, indeed, completely insane and writing a lot. Then again, I was also not eating much and not watching anything other than Buffy on TV, so. ;-)

" - just a dead body..."

It'll be ten years for me, come April. I don't have at-home 'net access, so I end up rushing things & spending too much time on FB. I would like to put more regular time on here; I've met to many precious folk through this site to forsake it.

*smishes you*

Have I told you how happy I am for getting to meet your awesome self? Never would have happened if not for LJ.

Gosh, nine years for me - if I go from the date I created my lj and discount the years of lurking... and yet here we are still hot and gorgeous. *g*

Yay for LJ! Even if it's just a nature photography blog for me in recent years, It's a grand place to hang out.

You take very cool pictures - I enjoy them, I just usually feel like I have nothing useful to contribute so I just don't. But I notice!

::giggles:: So, you must have been counting in the Imperial system (doesn't that sound faintly Star Warish?) i/o Metric. But, however long it's been, yay and congrats!

I think LJers are not only amazingly talented, but also some of the nicest people in this galaxy or any other!
