Time to Look at Yourself

How would we see ourselves if we were to get to know ourselves through our own blogs? I made this generic, so people who use blogging services other than LJ can weigh in on this too.

Would you consider this a fair characterization of you? I.E. Does your blog accurately reflect you as a person?

Yes, pretty much all the time.
2(18.2%)
Much of the time, yes.

It doesn't really reflect anyone at all.

This blog isn't the real me at all.

Do you like the idea of going back and deleting/revising entries?

Never. Once an entry is written, it's in the record.
2(18.2%)
Maybe on rare occasions I'll make a revision/deletion if I was way off the mark, but not without a very, very good reason.
6(54.5%)
I don't have an opinion one way or the other, you do what you have to do.
3(27.3%)
I revise and delete quite often.
0(0.0%)
I'm always changing or getting rid of entries.
0(0.0%)

Ethics

are a part of who you are, so they will always get reflected in your blog.
10(90.9%)
are a part of who you are, but blogging isn't the real world, so you may fudge a little now and then.

mean little to you.
0(0.0%)
ultimately tend to do people more harm than good.
0(0.0%)
should be avoided at all cost.
0(0.0%)

Is the LJ Idol competition essentially fair and aboveboard?

Yes, absolutely.
0(0.0%)
Yes, basically.
3(33.3%)
No, I rather doubt it.
2(22.2%)
No, it's pretty clear to me that it isn't.
3(33.3%)
I wouldn't touch that crap with a ten-foot poll.
