The Missing

If I go all the way back to the beginning of my archived posts, the earliest one is on Friday the 13th, October 2000. Kind of auspicious but also incorrect. I started my journal in August of 2000 and had at least one post (in reality about a dozen) between August and September. At least one that I know of was about a trip to see friends at Nags Head, NC. Another was a listing of everyone I could remember sleeping with, along with photos. But all of these are now missing. I wrote LJ Support and they tell me that they are sure the October 13 post was my first one. I'm quite sure they are full of it. I would have said something like "This is my first post!"

Has anyone else noticed this problem?

Interesting... this is triggering a memory from a few years ago, i.e. I'm sure I've heard this complaint before, somewhere on Livejournal, but I can't remember any more detail than that.

My journal appears to be fine... but then again I didn't start writing until January 2002.

Did you perhaps write those entries in another journal before creating this one?

LJ support suggested that too. But no, this was my first attempt at blogging/journaling. I know it was LJ because people who are still on my FL commented.


I did the whole "download your LJ" thing back in 2005 or 6. If I can find that PDF, I'll check and see if those posts are there and maybe restore them.

It's a third party program. It's mentioned in the FAQ and it can take up to an hour if you have a lot of entries but you get a nice PDF document out of it.

I'm going to have to look back in my own Archives and see what's up.

I believe my very first post was about having visited you and Eric at Nags Head in 2000. It had a photo of me out on the deck in a whittis sweatshirt with my long hair everywhere.

Anna made my journal for me and threw out the first post on July 27, 2003. It's still there. But then I don't go back as far as you do.

Suport wrote me letter going into elaborate detail as to why they think the October 13 entry was my first. Very convincing but utterly wrong. Now I just have to prove it.
