Who introduced you to LiveJournal? Why did you first open an account or get involved?
I was on Facebook looking at my friends' profiles to see what they were doing, and I came across my friend Edgar's page. He listed his personal website, which was an LJ page, and I decided to read it. I didn't have any blogs at the time, but I knew that I liked writing and I liked the internet, so I decided to get an account and check out the site. I actually didn't write for a while at first 'cause I didn't know what to write. lol I didn't have any friends here either, so I wasn't on here too much. I eventually joined a few communities, mainly the ones concerning mental health, and I e-met and befriended some awesome people. :-)
At the time I got the account, I was in college and doing horribly. I was anxious, depressed, and alone. The people I met on this site helped me a lot, and they still do♥
I pretty much needed a safe place where I could express myself, not feel so alone, and get support. Since this LJ account, I've opened up a few other ones. I have a couple other blogs outside of LJ, too. I just like to write about my personal thoughts and feelings, and I like to read up on other people's personal lives as well. Livejournal actually is my favorite social site. :-)
