Last Call for Entry Suggestions!
lj10mod wrote in lj_turns10
We're closing in on a rough table of contents for the book and this is the last week for open entry suggestions. 11:59 p.m. PST on February 25 is your last chance to suggest any and every excellent entry (remember that entries should be the author's original content and written in English). Things we're particularly interested in: entries from individual journals (it doesn't have to be your own); entries from the early years (1999–2000); and entries from the very, very recent past (i.e. 2007 and 2008).

Suggestion For the Site

I don't want the money, I just want to help. But I know there has been several people who has suggested getting a chat box, but if you had one big chat box with 100 some people, what would they do?. You should make chat boxes that are seperated by category. You have A LOT of people who go on this site and each person is different, but they all have similarities some where so have like a chat page with a bunch of categories on it like 'anime' or 'friends' 'enemies' or 'I'm in a bad mood'. They click on the ones they're most interested in and it takes them to a new web page where they can talk to people with the same personality as them or complete different if they wish.

I think the worst that can come from this is that some one will go on and they wouldn't want their username to show so there could be an option to hide their username.

Previously I left a suggestion for the site and I noticed people leaving links to stories. So... I'll go with the crowd. This is a link to my site:

http://shiannedirschel.synthasite.com/short-stories.php

The story on that page was a dream I had. Written from my point of view. It's short so it will take like 5 minutes to read.

This is a post about the recent presidental election and how things will work out the way they're supposed to.

http://kim1989.livejournal.com/510953.html

This is a little conversation between various brain cells in my body that took place January, 2008 as I contemplated exercise and losing weight in the new year.

Kit has a great entry here that talks about race relations in America from Rodney King through OJ Simpson and Tookie Williams that lays it out in a really readable way - it's must read materail for anyone who wants to learn more about why we're the way we are - despite living in "Post racial" America!

A sample:

Those riots came out of our collective despair. As I sat in the safety of my living room in Toronto, Canada, I felt a kinship with American Blacks that I had never felt before. I watched my people break windows; burning, pillaging, raging against the sky and the tears ran freely down my face as I said aloud to my empty room, “I can’t believe my people are doing this.” But I did believe it. Because I too, knew that rage. I too wanted to hurt, to tear, to rend - to rage impotently against the knowledge that there was no justice for us, that there would never be justice for us, that there was no reason to hope. THAT was why we rioted after the trial of the police officers who beat Rodney King. Because we’d just been told we were unbelievably foolish to hope. And when hope dies, what is left?

Miracle for supergman

these journals began aug.19th 2008 when our 8 year old son was diagnosed with a brain tumor that was sitting on the brain stem. As you can imagine, our worst nightmare had come true. The journals begin with a crisis, they show endurance and hope in the middle, and a miracle in the end. Now that we are on the other side of it, we thank God our son had a brain tumor. Had he not, we would not have seen that miracles of God STILL occur today. So many read the journals and were inspired to pray for him and to send it out to their circle of friends to join with them in prayer. For that, we are grateful. superg's mom

And if he doesn't get a chance to post it, this is very well-written:
http://soopageek.livejournal.com/71860.html

though i've been on LJ in one form or another since 2001, the only entry of mine i could find that seemed worthy of submission to such a project was this one here, which i posted after daylightsparks suddenly passed away. it was a surprise to find that i did actually have an entry that approached summing up what LJ has meant to me, why i've loved it since i joined, and why i hope i'll never leave.

An Example Of How Live Journal Makes You Think

This is basically what all LJ entries should be like. Short, to the point, and contradictorily sparkling. Dentists = SPARKLES OF DOOM.

(No wait, this might just be the epitome of my journal. Ah, well, I liked it.)

Here's the last of my entries that I'm submitting (I'm pretty sure). It's about buying books. (Buy now! Buy often!!) Btw, I'm sorry I repeated interesting in my first post. Yes, I should have edited it. (I was...)
