Why do I do that?

Your Livejournal Analasys

Your Livejournal's Age

According to the information you provided, your Livejournal was created on 2001-08-01, meaning that your journal has been around for 528 days. What does this mean?

With over a year of LJ experience under your belt, you can safely call yourself an experienced user. If you are still actively using your journal by now, then chances are you are here to stay. You probably don't add friends nearly as often as you used to, and more than likely have removed a bunch of people that used to be there. Staying in an online community for a year is something of an achievement, you know.

When I tried out this livejournal I made a few posts and then - feeling I had nothing worthwhile to say - ignored it for the next months. Then my job changed, I moved towns and I discovered that keeping a journal was a good way to reflect over the day and release stress. It's primary purpose is therefore purely selfish. Being a part of a community was always secondary though I enjoy reading other people's livejournals and even comment - sometimes.

Your Livejournal Friends

Now let's talk about your friends list. You indicated that you have 47 LJ friends. A good, considerable number of friends. This list probably represents a spectrum of both your good close friends as well as a number of passing acquaintances. A few of them might be folks you met through LJ, or simply journals that you found interesting, as well as adding random people back who added you at some point in the past. A fairly reasonable friends list.

You also have been listed as a friend by 24 users. It's getting there, but still a little thin. Your journal has been around a while, and chances are you don't add or get added much these days. Your interests and habits are obvious, and the people who are going to notice you have noticed you for the most part. Not to say your list won't grow, but by now your list of friends is fairly developed. And you like it that way.

Finally in this category, you have a friends to friends-of ratio of 1.9583333333333. This is a relatively high ratio, meaning you add quite a few more people than have added you to their friends list. This may be a sign that you tend to add people fairly randomly to your list, although there is also a good chance that you simply do not advertise your own journal much, and don't expect too many people to be adding you back.

None of these friends I have ever met in Real Life. In fact, I rather socialize over the net if at all. a) I add journals I find if they catch my interest and are enjoyable to read, b) if they are inside of a rather narrow field of interests and c) I try to keep the number manageable. If I add you, I also want to read your entries. Quite often I add several (topic specific) journals of one user or communities. That's probably one reason why I'm less often befriended. Another is that I usually don't comment. The people I befriend hardly notice that I'm there. Plus, I don't think my journal is so interesting.

Your Posting Habits

You have indicated that to date, you have made 555 entries into your Livejournal. This gives us an average post rate of 1.0511363636364 posts per day. By updating your journal at least once a day, and from time to time even twice, you view your journal as something of a news outlet for your life. You almost never miss an opportunity to keep your journal appraised of what's been going on in your life. You probably also post the occasional silly webquiz or something like that to flesh things out. In short, you make good use of your Livejournal.

I try to journal daily. Doesn't work everyday but most times.

Your Commenting Habits

According to your information, you have posted 185 comments and have recieved 100 of them over the lifetime of your journal. Let's see what this information can mean.

First of all, this indicates that you have been getting an average of 0.18018018018018 comments for every Livejournal entry that you make. This indicates that you get less than 1 comment for every 5 posts that you make. This is a very low number, but it does not necessarily mean your journal goes ignored. There's a good chance that you simply don't have many friends on your list, or your friends might prefer to comment to you directly as opposed to on your journal. Either that, or you don't seek to make interesting posts.

Everything of it is accurate.

A more fair measure of how many comments you get might be your average number of comments per post per friend, which is 0.0038336208548975. This may seem low to you, especially if you have lots of friends.

The final statistic is the ratio of your comments to comments you get. Your ratio is 1.85. The higher the ratio, the more talkative you are compared to your friends, comment-wise.

Yeah, I should be more outspoken, make more comments. But you know, I'm very introvert. Don't take it personally.

That's it for now! Perhaps there was something insightful in this analasys, and perhaps you learned absolutely nothing. Feel free to post your results on your own Livejournal, and invite your friends to take the Livejournal Analasys today!
