I post several times a day. I read my friends list several times a day. I comment on other people's journals when I have something relevant to add.
99% of my journal is public. I still get a kick out of finding new friends. And I'm LOVING refinding old ones these days. I'm adding people to my friends list who have listed here. I'm not asking, I'm just adding. If I'm added back, great. If not, one day I'll cull my list - no harm, no foul.
