Favourite Entry
natural_hero wrote in lj_turns10
One of the most memorable and favourite entries of my own took place during the black-out that occurred in parts of Canada and the USA in August, 2003. Throughout the evening I kept going back to my laptop and updating my entry on what was going on and how I spent my time without other forms of technology. It's a very in-the-moment snapshot of 16-year-old me.

So, without further ado:

"Thank God for laptops!!! (aka what I did during NA's biggest black-out)"

Thanks for reading!

Couples on LJ
oceansedge wrote in lj_turns10
A small but important part of LiveJournal over the last 10 years has been the number of couples who've met and fallen in love and married thanks to LiveJournal..

My husband and I met on LiveJournal in the spring of 2004 on our respective Friends Lists, later on that year we met for the first time in Portland. After a couple of trips to Australia he didn't pop the question on LiveJournal, but it was here we made the official announcement...


We were married on July 23rd, 2006. That was really the beginning of the story, not the end - he had to return to Australia and we had to process the immigration paperwork, there were still moments of heartache, but he made it to Canada, (and I finally figured out voice posting).

He found a home, I found a protector, we both found a lifelong mate.

And that's the whole story of how a middle aged bear from Australia met a middle aged single Mom cat from Northern Canada, fell in love, and got married, all thanks to LiveJournal.

Early Members

I don't have any wonderful journal entries to suggest (of my own or from other members), but as LiveJournal is turning 10 perhaps some kind of feature on the early, early members? I've been here since 1999 (#109). I joined because LJ was mentioned by another member (#34) and my friend from highschool (#113) joined not long after.

I apologise if this has been mentioned already as I haven't had time to read through everything, but there are still many members who are still the original owners (despite many an email offering to buy mine off me, for example) who will also be celebrating 10 years along with LiveJournal. Perhaps some kind of survey/mini interview about what LJ was like, how you found it, etc etc?

The Writers Strike

This item, which may contain some adult content, addressed a comment made by Matt Bors regarding Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert's return as show makers to their respective shows The Daily Show With Jon Stewart, and the Colbert Report.

The link

Whilst I appreciate this may not be the most appropriate choice, it occurs to me some recognition of the pitched battles and infighting that occurred during the writers strike of late 2007 should be included in your book.
