I know. I used to have an account on Diary-X before that crashed and burned a few years ago. And, I only read the journals of people who I knew in real life, girls I went to school with, my bestfriends, etc. But, I was never comfortable asking for advice or posting what I really felt. I've had a bloop before too, like two years ago, but after it got deleted, I didn't come back for a long time.
I love how helpful everyone here is. How welcoming and comforting they can be. And, its true, you do know a lot of people on your faves, or have at least talked to them more than once on some random comic.
I'm rambling, sorry. But, I do really likethis site a lot more than any other blogging site I've been on.
