Who introduced you to LiveJournal? Why did you first open an account or get involved?
I first got a Livejournal back in the day when you still needed to enter a code. Zaya gave me the code from her account and girlsnotgrey888 was born. I have since gone back and read through this journal and nearly wept at the hysteria of it. Also the godawful typing. I'm so glad I learnt to type in mainly logical sentences.
I got an account because it was felt that I needed somewhere to let out all that teenage angst. I don't think it really helped though, just gave me a soapbox from which to shout it.
