I just looked in my livejournal info section and it says I am "Friend of" 349 other users. I know a lot of people have many more than that, but for me the idea that hundreds of people are reading this thing is just insane. So many... I remember being impressed when the number said 100. My friend likes to tease me and say i'm an "internet celebrity" and says i have a "fan club". It really gets to me too :P I don't want to be one of those people who everyone knows of, but don't really know. I don't want to be one of those people who others think they can talk shit about or drag down just because they're "so popular anyway". People have a tendency to badmouth people who are more "popular" than themselves so that they can somehow even out the scales, making themselves look better and the other part worse. I'm sure you all have friends who saw that guy from that band at that afterparty and "oh my god he was so gross and totally groping all the girls like he was the king of the world or something". Ya know? I don't want that.

While I was writing this here just now, I got a message on AIM from a guy that had added my journal to his friends list a while ago, and was a bit upset that I haven't added him back. Cuz that's common courtesy right? I'm really sorry about this, but I just can't. I'm sorry everyone who have added me without me adding you back, but my friends list is already flooded with entries. It's really hard to keep up with it all, and I'm getting worse and worse at it. To be honest, I rarely read the longest entries anymore :(. I have 141 people on that list right now, and if I was to add 200 more? Ay ay ay. It makes me feel really bad that I'm not able to return the attention everyone is giving me, but I just can't. Also to be honest, I am a real slacker with these things. I get these really nice and long emails and I go forever without replying to them. It's terrible, I know.

The whole thing is just really strange. 349 people...plus all the ones without journals. It started out two years ago with some of my friends from tarvalon.net, and now it's all over the place. Everything is so public, and I've caught myself rewriting sentances to be more politically correct. Not so long ago someone was upset I said 'retard', and I thought yeah I guess that's not the best way to show my respect to mentally handicapped people, but ughhh. Ya know? Ugh.

As always when I write "serious" and "long" it ends up all chaotic and random. Please forgive, and just be thankful for paragraphs :P

And please don't think I'm not eternally grateful for all the support. 349 + is just amazing, and you're one of the biggest resources in my life <3


I feel like a dork talking about my own "popularity", but it's on my mind and this is my journal. Don't think this is me being self absorbed. If you know me, then you know I'm not.

don't know if you noticed, but there's a huge lack of attractive guys on lj,or guys period.
so when people find one one here, they friend him =]
plus you seem really nice and sweet, and you take great pictures.

There has been a Moradi fan club for ever, which of course means there is one for you. :p \o/

Then you get all creative and take pictures and even more people can join. :)

But just remember where it all started. :waggle

Your photography is amazing and provides a window to Europe for me anyway. Thanks and keep posting great pictures please.
30th-Apr-2007 08:46 pm (UTC)
Thanks for watching :)

Well in any case, people add you because you are a good photographer and it's beautiful. For me, personally, you inspire me. Don't worry about all that stuff, it'll get by.

Seeing as you are feeling the LJ-popularity pressure, I would have deleted you to help relieve the strain..... but you're European so I actually can't by law :p Not by my own personal law anyways.

I prefer more Europeans on my friends-list cause obviously we'd be on the same wave-length and they'd atleast understand some of the stuff I talk about. Unfortunately they seem to be lacking online so I have very few :( Maybe thats why I get bored?

It makes me sad!

You truely have no reason to say sorry, but I think it's really cool that you did. This is why you have so many "friends". You're a good person before being a total cutie (which you are).
That's something rare, and truely a inspiration in humanity.
(Yeah, I know that's possibly going a tad on the deep end... but not really. Cute boys = assholes almost always without fail.)

This (to me) is why you are a star.

I wish people would stop with the star talk :P

Yeah I already do this to filter out my groups and comic feeds and everything. I don't want to categorize people like that though. If this one group is never gonna get read anyway then there's not really any difference in that and not adding them at all.

I just read your blogs for the photos.

Just like when you buy a magazine.

I rarely read the blogs.

Every know and then.

Can I have your autograph? =p

I need to get it in fucking order that's what I need. It looks the same way as the rest of my not very interesting handwriting.

you should always be able to say whatever you want how ever you want in your own journal stranger :]
30th-Apr-2007 08:57 pm (UTC)

30th-Apr-2007 06:48 pm (UTC)
