Happy Anniversary to Me

Well LiveJournal, it's a year today since we started our relationship.  I know that I was a bit distant at first, and I admit that I thought you were just too odd and outgoing for my taste.  I couldn't imagine that people would see us together and not say "What is she thinking?  No one is interested in all of that.  She should really be acting her age."

But as time went on, our relationship flowered, as such things are wont to do.  We've learned to make friends, to communicate well with others, and even to post pictures.  There have been some disappointments, some crashes, some lost posts, but we've gotten through them and moved on.

I'm sure this year will be even better.  Maybe we'll even learn to post links correctly!

To all of you out there who've been with me from either the beginning, or just last week - thanks for your company and your interest.  It's been a fun year, and I love hearing from you all.  Here's to you, and to more friends still to come.  I hope I'm not boring you too badly ;-)

Eloise

Awww. *hug* I'm so glad you're having fun in here, & I think it's great fun, yammering with you through LJ. You're getting pretty good at it too! ^_^

Funny - "yammering" is exactly the word my mother would use. Accurate too.

We're both having a lot of fun - Bob lurks. He enjoys reading the open entries on his computer and keeping up with folks. Keeping a diary was something I was never any good at, but this is better - there's feedback!

Do you need to know how to post links? Ones hidden behind text you choose? I can always copy and paste the code found in LJ's many FAQS...or just link you to the right FAQ.

Hard to remember, easy peasy to copy and paste :)

Happy anniversary. I've been on LJ for 3 years in early June. Merimask happened to be my very first 'mutual friend' on LJ. Her sister, too, at the time, but she never uses her LJ anymore and only did for the first month or something.

Ahh, nostalgia.

If you could just point me to the right FAQ, I'll be good to go. Thanks!

I didn't really think I'd take to this. Originally I just got the account so that I could comment to other people without being anonymous, but after about a month I decided that I should just start using it so that I wasn't taking up space on Merimask talking about MY gossip. The rest, as they say, is extremely public history.

Also you can, for example, write an entry that says "If you want to see how to do a French braid, I found some good instructions HERE." And you want the link to be behind the word 'here', all you do is select 'HERE' then hit the 'link' button when you are making an entry (you have to be in Rich Text mode) and a new little box will pop up and you copy and past the url into it and hit 'okay' and then the word will be a link. :)

PS: The 'link' button is a little section of chain over top of a globe.

I didn't have luck with the link button. But I also have to admit that I didn't try real hard - I was too impatient.

I'll ping you if I have more trouble after doing my required reading.
