Putting a polish on the journal

I dunno what people get out of listing interests, but I had some time to kill at work today, and I raided my friends interests. I'm not all the way through, but I have a lot more. For what it's worth.

I listed some initially because I saw other people doing so. I've found that they're semi-useful for two things: giving random people who bump into my journal a hint about whether they'll find it interesting, and finding other journals that I might find interesting through the "search by interests" feature. Not that I go surfing for journals all that often, but still...

What I've discovered during this process is the number of interests my friends have in common that I don't consider a high enough priority to list as an interest (or things they have in common that I don't care about at all.) But other than that, I'm not certain how much value I'll get out of changing things. *shrugs

There's a difference between the things you would spontaneously generate (probably many fewer than 150) and the things you see on someone else's list and say "yeah, ok" to. Unfortunately, there's no way to rank the list; you can't even do it by order, because LJ alphabetizes the list.

They're good for finding other users and communities that you might have things in common with, and vice versa.

Great. *More* bastards who lumber into my journal. Just what I needed. :)

If you don't want anyone reading your journal, write it on paper.

Then burn it.

I could go into more detail about what I meant...

...or I could just call you a bastard.


Somehow, although it is not more informative or helpful, it is more pleasing to simply point and scream. 8^P

I see you are trying to get to the meat of the issue. I won't ask you any questions, because some might think I was trying to grill you. I can tell that asking you won't help, due to the glazed look in your eye...

Now, Trey, tell me how you really veal. I'm fishing for the real answers, here! Don't stick your head in the sand like an ostrich!

I bow to your superior ability. I feel sheepish just even attempting to de-pig's-feet you.

If I can scrape up a few more, I'll do so...but it's busy at work.

How's my Eastern Seaboard coming?

Artic? Arctic!
Yer speling iz egzellant! Me likes.

Yeah, it'd be nice if you'd finish the one task. I have more assignments for you (my wife needs one of her coworkers removed, and I suspect that you have the skills to do so...) but I can't interrupt your first task because you might never finish it!

DSL good. Pie good. Me like pie. Pie!!!!!

I'll look for the links when I'm done cleaning my office. Looking forward to fine humor. :)
