Twirly McSwirl- For the People  
Greetings, fellow LJ-ians. I am a 22 year old college senior/archaeologist from Florida. Like everyone else here, I am throwing in my hat for a seat on the LiveJournal Advisory Board. When it first was announced that this position would be created, I knew it was the perfect outlet for me to be the "change I want to see in the world." Or, at least, in LiveJournal.

I have been an active LiveJournal user since November 10, 2002, originally as clarinutter. I changed to this journal shortly after starting college, and it has been a paid account since. I have posted actively almost continuously over the past 5.5 years, created, moderated, or maintained numerous large communities, followed most LiveJournal official communities regularly to keep abreast of the site, and even served a stint volunteering with LiveJournal Support. (While I thoroughly enjoyed the user assistance aspect, I don't pretend to be as technologically knowledgeable as many of the other volunteers, hence why I am no longer active there.)

What can I bring to the board? Unbridled enthusiasm and opinions out my ears. I fully believe not in doing the most good for the most people, but the least bad for the fewest people- as nothing can be worse than alienating users who don't fit into the target demographic. I am also pre-law with a focus on copyright law, so I can bring at least scholastic knowledge, if not practical experience, to that arena.

The most important thing I bring, however, is passion. I have a true and fiery passion for the community LiveJournal has created, and undying determination to preserve it. For some, it's just an online site. But to the users who make LiveJournal what it is, it is our cyber-home. Not the lack of reality, but a very real addition to it. I have formed real, lasting friendships with people I have met on this site. It's not just a diversion, and it shouldn't be treated that way. We all have so much invested in this site- emotion, experience, content- and it all deserves to be protected.

If elected, I swear to you that my voice will never falter in the will to do just that.

Hey! I say a lot more here! Read me!
