InsaneJournal's birth is similar to that of various clone sites. Jason, known on InsaneJournal as squeaky, created the site. InsaneJournal's first URL was http://journal.insanityspeaks.com, but this changed as the site grew.
InsaneJournal got started when Jason (better known as squeaky) was bored at work one night. Several of his friends were using LiveJournal. While browsing the site, he noticed that it was an open source project. So to give himself something to do, he said, "What the heck, let's see if I can do this on my own." And it just grew from there.
With a few dedicated volunteers to help, this site continues to grow and improve. If you'd like to support us, please consider upgrading your account.
