1. You have not yet commented.  Just a Lurker.  Swimming in the primordial soup.

1a. You sign up for an account.  You call yourself "Abiogenesis."  You've grown ovaries, and legs, and you've crawled onto land.  AND, you can Rec, and perhaps soon.........HR!

2. Your very first comment ever, having to do with the futility of vaccinations, gets bombed to oblivion with HR's.  Who knew?

3. Your second comment ever, apologizing for saying vaccinations are futile, survives. But no Rec's.

4. Your very next comment, spouting the wonderfulness of vaccinations gets 59 Rec's.  

5. Your first comment written from the heart, gets a Rec.  (woo-hoo!)

6. 12,856 comments later, you write your first diary.  About the futility of vaccinations.  HR'd to oblivion.

7. Your second diary, apologizing for that diary, gets 1 view, no Recs.

8. Your third diary, praising Kos and the site, kissing as many asses as you can, gets you your first Diary Rec (Woo-Hoo!!!!).  In fact it gets you 12 Recs.

9. First comment on the Top Comments list.  Something to do with how great cats are.

10. You get an invite to join a group, by the name of "Cats Are Great."

10a.  Someone subscribes to your account.  Someone who loves cats.

11. You take a hiatus from the site for 2 months (fame is tiring).

12. You come back to find the site has been "upgraded."  You can't find a goddamned thing.  You sulk.  You fume.  You explode.  You write a diary about how badly the new site sucks ass.  Your very first diary on the Recommended Diary List!

13. In that diary, Kos himself replies to one of your comments.  He tells you your opinion is as good as anyone else's.  (SCORE!!!!).  But, does he really MEAN it?

13a. You brood about that for three months.

14. 15,204 comments later, a front-page writer quotes you (!)

15. 3,129 comments later, a non-recommended diary you wrote gets linked to, on the front-page.  It's about water levels in Ukraine lakes.

19. New front-pagers are chosen, and you are chosen as an alternate.  Should anyone fall, you're in (!!!)

20. Kos is arrested as head of a guinea-pig-racing syndicate, under RICO statutes.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
