My Favorite LJ User

This is my response to the free topic in therealljidol.

Who is my favorite LJ user? The quick first guess might be kittytech. And why not? She's my girlfriend, the love of my
life, right? Well absolutely she is, but no, I think my favorite LJ user
is me. I say this not to be vain, but for several other reasons.

First, I put a lot of time and some money into this LJ. The time is
considerable, and while the money is neglegeable, it is still money. Why
would I put this investment into an LJ that wasn't my favorite?

Secondly, I want people to enjoy my efforts. If I am to achieve this
goal, I have to like it, I have to be enthusiastic about it. If
I'm not, my LJ turns into something like the kid in the Cheech and Chong
routine writing about what he did on his summer vacation. you know, "I
woke up. Then I went downtown. To look for a job. Then i hung out in
front of the drugstore." And so on.

So that's why I'm my favorite LJ user: not because I vainly believe my
LJ to be better than anyone else's, I know better than that. But I
believe that if I am not my favorite LJ user, this whole thing is an
exercise in futility.


I don't think that's vain at all. I think it makes sense. If you're going to have others read it, you have to like it yourself.
I wouldn't know how to answer a question like that. I think it's an unfair question, because I have people on my friends page, because I want to get to know them. I don't really have a favorite friend, so why would I have a favorite LJ user? I like you all.
I don't know how I feel about that. me seems a little confused. And he doesn't update very much anymore!
LOLOLOLOLOLOL Even that name was used, was it?
http://i.livejournal.com/ exists too. I is very politically minded by the looks of it. And I (me) also has very bad grammar too. *g*

And, I think this one, http://you.livejournal.com/, may have been created by me :-) It's never been posted in, so could be available to the highest bidder. You want it? *g*

You can probably haz it!
I'm not surprised me is confused. me could be any number of people, including me. *g*

Is there a You, I, or myself out there, I wonder? I'm going to look. heheheheh
I'm glad you wrote about your LJ as being your favorite user! I was considering doing that myself, so don't think there is any vanity involved. It was a great entry, and it's great to see a non-contestant writing!

I hope you will play the Home Game, if you haven't already!
