Obviously I have no idea how LJ works because I have tried to become a member of a couple of communities and I keep getting declined. I have no idea why. Is it because I'm new and have no LJ cred? Is it because I don't have a paid account? Do I smell? I don't get it. It's apparent that it's not like the old Blogrings on Xanga were, back in the day, where you just joined and BOOM, you're in! I don't know what I need to do to fit the criteria of these communities. It's frustrating. I don't know how to meet people here. I really miss being social. I want to some new friends to be smartassed with. I have missed bitching blogging and now that I can again, no one wants me.
