Ten years ago today

Ten years ago on a cold, dark night, today, I set up this account, here on LiveJournal. Ten years already!

It wasn't a social action, but one of self-accountancy, a purpose for which I still use it; although the social elements are even more of a use for it these days in my life. Then, the only person I knew using this service was offline for a month with her newborn - V's birthday is always an advanced reminder to me that this account anniversary is coming up!

These days, despite all the gloomsayers of the end of LJ, there's lots for me to read here on a daily basis, especially from friends whom I know both in spite of LJ and because of it. Thank you all who write it for me (among others) to read.
