Farewell AKA My Final LJ Post

I have been a loyal Livejournal user since 2001. I came across the site right before my family and I left Houston for our journey to Knoxville, TN and decided it would be a fun way to exploit my life online (don't believe me, look at my archive. No really. Go look. I'll wait). Since I started I have posted a record of 2,322 entries, including this one. Some of them were random. Some of them were long. Some of them were very short. Even when I grew tired of posting in my Livejournal (and people ridiculed me for still having one) I continued to remain loyal to the LJ community and write about my inner-most thoughts. For the most part, it had been good to me. Sometimes, it got me in trouble. It has been there for me when I needed a shoulder to cry on or someone to lend an ear...or even when I just wanted someone to celebrate with.

After 9 years of continuous journaling, I have finally decided to retire from the LJ community.

I have my reasons, so before you start flaming and trolling, hear me out.

First off, up until recently, Livejournal has been completely ad free. I have supported the site through facebook and advertising on my own freewill, and I feel like LJ has supported itself through account upgrades. As a future employee of the media variety, I understand the need to have advertising...I do. But it just kind of annoys me after having a 9 year journal that I have to sit through an ad in order to post. I figured at this point Livejournal would at least reward loyalty.

I wanted to keep the trend going, of course, and perhaps one day become "the girl who has the oldest running livejournal account ever." But I just don't see that happening.

Don't get me wrong, of course. Even though I'm complaining about the advertising first, that is not the biggest reason.

A majority of my posts were made between the years of 2001 and 2005. If you guys (that is, any loyal LJ friends still out there) can recall, those were my high school years. And as you may or may not know, high schoolers tend to go through a lot of hormonal changes, and feel 10 times the amount of emo that they should. And yes, even though I still fly off the handle and get that emo twinge every now and then (it happened a lot today. Don't you love insecurities?), I just don't feel like I (or others) can take myself seriously with THAT stabbing me in the back.

This is not me running from the past or trying to hide anything. I know where I've been, who I am and what I've done. I don't need a public journal to remind me.

Lastly, I think it's time I move up in the "blogging world." Everyone else under the sun has taken advantage of it, why haven't I? Bloggers even make money through advertising.

(WOAH WOAH WOAH WOAH. MEGAN. YOU HYPOCRITE. Why don't you just stop right there. Didn't you just say -

You know what, shut up. It's one thing if you start with advertising, it's another if you make your 9-year-old veterans sit through it after remaining faithful for so long. I stand by my opinion strong.)

...anyway, you understand what I'm saying. I have already started a blog (which can be found here.) about my on-going struggles against a local gym and their crooked ways. I plan on starting more blogs, including one where I review certain restaurants, games, tv programs, etc. and perhaps even another blog where I post personal thoughts, but with more of a well-written, philosophical standpoint than just me blabbing on like this.

Also, you can't change the name on your livejournal. I started this one up when I was still obsessed with Pokemon. Get it now? Put that in your pipe and smoke it.

So here is my final farewell to Livejournal. My thank you to the site that watched me grow. The site that carried me from three cities, saw my heart get broken more often than not, and was there to share stupid quiz results and retarded rp banter.

I wish you luck, Livejournal. It's been a fun ride. But now I am off to better blogging horizons and new beginnings.

Too-da-loo.

Sincerely,

Вы пользовались услугами девушек в Москве?

Приветствую всех

Если в советское время не болтали,что есть [url=http://www.superrike.ru]проститутки москвы[/url] и информация была не доступна, но все равно существовала, то в 90-е годы уровень услуги [url=http://www.superrike.ru/devochki/statya-4]секс услуги[/url] резко начал расти. По многим источникам только в одной Москве количество предложений [url=http://www.superrike.ru/devochki/statya-1]интим знакомства[/url] возросло до 30 тысяч, а во всей России число этих девушек достигло 180 тысяч. По данным других источников 130 тысяч проституток насчитывали только в Москве. Если сравнить с Польшей,то это достаточно большие цифры, даже если не брать во внимание размеры территории. В Великобритании, например,услуги [url=http://www.superrike.ru]dosug[/url] насчитывали всего 90 тысяч, во Франции чуть больше – 95 тысяч, в Германии – 80 тысяч.

Если во времена застоя практически ничего не слышали о мужской проституции, это было вообще неприемлемо, то в 1990-е годы уже появляются не только слухи об этом, но и стало нормальным,что [url=http://www.superrike.ru/devochki/statya-2]shemale[/url] предлагают свои услуги [url=http://www.superrike.ru]интимсити[/url],ну и вообще начинает развиваться данное направление.



С уважением ваш друг Демид
