Today is the day of the tenth anniversary of my LiveJournal!

That is some awesome stuff!!!! I totally had no idea, but then [livejournal.com profile] pinkfinity said something on Twitter about how ten years ago, she was about to start an LJ, and I was like, well, shoot! This would have been my tenth anniversary, and I guess I missed it! Because I knew it was sometime in December, 2001.

BUT I DIDN'T MISS IT. IT WAS TODAAAAY. SERENDIPITOUS.

I had tried to start a blog previous to being on LJ, but I didn't actually know that blog software existed and I was just updating an HTML file by hand. BECAUSE I FAIL. Then [livejournal.com profile] atomicfiction got a LiveJournal, and I sort of copied him, as all good people are wont to do.

*PUTS ON NOSTALGIAPANTS*

Grrr, so I had a whole lovely entry typed out and LJ ate it. I am sure it was a delicious entry or something, but it could have left some for me.

I have a bunch more stuff to post in an "official" blog post, but this one is just for LJ. Official blog post is going to wait till tomorrow. It will have a rum cocktail and possibly some other things. Who knows?!

Anyway, these are the things for LJ!

1) I have been incrementally going back through my LiveJournal and making a lot of posts that used to be friends-only public. I've also been making a lot of posts that were on special special filters into friends-only posts. I think I have done from December 2001 when I started this LJ up to halfway through 2005. Sound like fun? I think it does. I tried to be careful not to make posts public if people who commented shared personal information, but mostly these weren't very deeply personal posts, I just, for various reasons pertaining to my own personal life at the time, locked a lot of things I would never dream of locking now. I don't know that anyone would ever want to trawl through my LJ, but if you want to see things like entertaining poems I wrote when I was 15, or pictures of me and [livejournal.com profile] liret dressed as pirates, these things are free and open to the public now!

2) It's that time of year again when I clean out my closet because I am getting out my summer clothes and packing up my winter ones. So I have a huge pile of clothes I would like to get rid of, and some shoes. The shoes are mostly 8 or 8 1/2 with a couple 7 1/2 and a couple 9s and mostly heeled. The clothing is mostly a size 6 or a size small/medium, with some 4s, some 8s, and one or two 10s. If anyone is curious about clothes, let me know and I can take pictures of stuff or just send you a surprise box. I also have various Betty Boop and Popeye items for the discerning whatever you are. As always, the only charge is whatever it costs to ship, and if you can't afford that, please just let me know privately.

3) Most of you probably don't know this, but I quit drinking coffee when I was 17. I was at the point where I needed two 20 oz thermoses of it a day just to function (I preferred caffeine to sleep in those days), and I realized this was bad, so I quit. In the past fifteen years, I have had maybe a few Starbucks-style frozen gooey coffee drinks, a couple of really good cappuccinos in Italy, and that is pretty much the extent of my coffee drinking. But now with my asthma so bad, I've been trying to slurp up a lot of caffeine because it helps. And I'm concerned about drinking so much soda because of all the sugar (also it makes your mouth taste gross after a while), so I actually drank more iced coffee this weekend than I think I have had in the past fifteen years. Anyway, I'm thinking about getting a French press, so I can make coffee at home and electric coffee pots just confuse me. I would like to enlist you all to suggest coffees. I would like ones that come already ground, coarse ground of course for the press, and prefer fair trade/rainforest friendly.

4) I wrote a story for LJ Idol this week. First, I wrote this entry, and then I had to revise it, and I revised it into a very different story.

As always, there is a poll where you can read all the entries (there are only 16) and vote. Please consider dropping me a vote! I am [livejournal.com profile] the_vernacular. poll beneath the cut! )

The poll is open until Wednesday.

[livejournal.com profile] theafaye also did this really sweet thing for all the people still in the game. It's a place to leave nice messages for all of us. It's right here, in case you've been following along and would like to say something. I'm going to try to, as soon as I finish up some work that needs doing!

<3 <3 everybody! Have a wonderful week! Mine starts tomorrow on account of a holiday for Memorial Day today.

I just sent this message to LJ:

Hi there! I have been a loyal paid LJ user for nearly ten years and I have always been delighted with your service and the wonderful community you have supported- so delighted that I registered for a permanent account nearly four years ago.

However, I have noticed a severe and sharp uptick in spam in the past two or three months. Before the beginning of this year, I rarely received spam comments-- I would get only a few spam comments a year. In the past few months, I have suddenly started getting many spam comments per week, sometimes as many as four or five a day. It has forced me to apply comment screening for anonymous commenters on my journal, but even then, many of the spam comments come from registered users, and it has really forced me to spend a lot more time moderating my journal. This is extremely frustrating and is the first time I have felt that the quality of my LJ experience has been compromised enough that I would consider taking my business to another service. I would certainly hate to do that because LJ has been my home on the internet for many years.

I've heard from friends that they have been receiving a similar uptick in spam, so it is not just me. I wanted to know if you are already doing something to combat it, or if it is on your development schedule. Please, please look into adding a spam blocker to LJ, something like Akismet or Bad Behavior. I have a personal blog as well and my personal blog receives many more spam comments than LJ, but the Akismet spam blocker catches nearly all of them. I would even be happy if paid and permanent account members were given the ability to just use the Akismet spam blocker voluntarily on LJ.

Thanks very much!

All anonymous comments are now screened on my journal. Apologies! I have just been getting so much spam and I would prefer to not have to delete it all.

Anyway! I am really not happy about this. Usually LJ does things that piss people off and I shrug and say, "eh," but this lack of spam protection is not acceptable. I've been getting multiple spam comments a day, whereas I used to get maybe one or two a year.

I was checking the source code on one of my friend's LJs, and saw this little line here:

LiveJournal ExpressLane: You received this page before 1 free users!

It sort of creeped me out. I have a permanent account, and I am glad I do; I like the security of it and the not having to remember to pay, and the extra features. I pay for it because I see it as my way of continuing the service. I am also glad that LJ gives paid account users a service with no ads, and other perks. You get what you pay for, you know?

I'm probably the last person to notice this, or something, but it's not just the idea that paid users get faster service. There's an undercurrent of elitism inherent in it, but that's not really any different from paying your cable company to get speedier bandwidth at home or work, or paying to get preferred service on an airline or train. What I don't like is the way it is smugly advertised in the source code, as if us paid users are sitting around competitively snickering at how much faster our connection is to LJ than everyone else's. That we're somehow basking in that elitism. I didn't even realize I got a preferred rate of connection on LJ. Probably because my connection speed so often sucks.

Which is cool and all, I realize it's a hefty site, but now this leaves me wondering how slow this is for everyone else.

And if there's anyone who actually checks their source code to luxuriate in the privilege of their paid account. It just kind of makes me go ick.

So, my little pumpkins!

I have been thinking about something lately, and I would like to put it out there for all of you:

Over the past few months since I started doing comics, the number of people who have friended me has almost doubled.

And I feel badly because I don't know all of you and just can't keep up with friending everyone who friends me. This is not because I don't like you! I love meeting new people and getting to know them and I feel kind of callous when I don't friend people back, but I also feel callous when I don't comment on lots of people's posts. I am trying to find the right happy medium. I sort of wish that there was a way on LJ to do what you can do on Dreamwidth and unlock friendslocked posts to people without adding them to your reading list. Yeah, I know usually people talk about reading people without giving them access to locked posts, but I'm a much more open person and my downfall is more in the context of wanting to tell people about more personal things but knowing I just can't keep up with the friendslist size (or with the complications of reading list filters-- I have tried and it just confused me).

So, I would like to do this! Usually people post that meme telling people to ask something about themselves, but I don't want to make this about me. I would like to learn more about you! If you're reading my LJ, I would love it if you tell me about yourselves! Even if you are someone I know pretty well, figure it will be for the benefit of other people who are reading, to see if maybe they would like to be your LJ friend, too! And if you do have questions you would like to ask me about...well, pretty much anything unless it's a topic I normally keep under a friendslock...please feel free to do that!

If you need help thinking of things to tell me, try some of these:
--What do you do for a living?
--What are some of your hobbies or interests?
--What is your favorite color?
--What is the airspeed velocity of an unladen swallow?
--How do you feel about chickens?
--Or anything, really! What is important to you to tell me?

<3 to everyone!

And if you do have questions you would like to ask me about...well, pretty much anything unless it's a topic I normally keep under a friendslock...please feel free to do that!

If you need help thinking of things to tell me, try some of these:
--What do you do for a living?
--What are some of your hobbies or interests?
--What is your favorite color?
--What is the airspeed velocity of an unladen swallow?
--How do you feel about chickens?
--Or anything, really! What is important to you to tell me?

<3 to everyone!

It is a new year! And I think I am kind of crazy, but I just started three new communities that I hope you will join if they interest you. I kind of have a bad track record with keeping communities alive, but I have also recently started a job that demands I keep a schedule, so I am thinking I may start scheduling other parts of my life as well. It has worked so far with cleaning house, at least!

I noticed a lot of people posting wishlists or posting to holiday wishlist communities this holiday season, but I saw that those all had an expiration date, or would be hard to find later on. So I started a birthday wishlist community, where posts can be tagged by month, where people can post wishlists and other people can scroll through and fulfill some wishes for not just friends, but maybe even some strangers!

I have been reading tarot cards for a long time, but there are some cards I know better than others. I also have friends who want to learn to read tarot or who are interested in tarot. So I thought it would be fun to put together a community where people can learn tarot cards one card at a time. If you are interested in tarot, read tarot, or are curious about learning tarot, please join up!

You all know that I post a lot of cocktail recipes to my journal! I made a community specifically for sharing cocktail recipes and discussion.

Please join or link and feel free to steal the graphics if you are going to pimp them! I hope all of you will join some of them and some of you will join all of them! But I will not be offended if you join none of them!
