It's been 10 years...

Today is the 10 year anniversary of me creating my livejournal, after broin told me how awesome this new "Live Journal" thing was. You needed an invite to get in then, and I paid for a month's membership in order to bypass that. 10 years on, I'm still paying for my account, and very happy to do so.

It's also my 10,000th post. Which is a mindboggling number to me. Admittedly, a chunk of those were automated, but I've only been doing that since 26th September 2008, so it would be 8,800 posts even without that, which is 2.4 posts per day. For ten fucking years. Wow.

I've met a lot of interesting people through LJ, kept in touch with a few people that I might not have otherwise managed to, read a huuuuuge amount of awesome things, engaged in far too many arguments, and documented far too many things that would ridiculously embarass me.

I am still happy to be here, even if LJ is no more reliable now than it was back then, and still seems to be run by idiots far too much of the time. I won't be leaving until the last person on my flist stops posting here. You're a great bunch, and I thoroughly enjoy reading your posts and your awesome comments.

Will I be here in 10 more years? I guess that's up to LJ, and you lot. I'll definitely be posting somewhere, and I hope to see you all there!
