This entire experience of Xanga announcing their pending demise has been fascinating to me.
In case I've not previously said it, the reason I have not stood up and vowed to help keep the wheels on this particular cart is because I cannot support a pay to blog model. One of the very best parts of Xanga is that it has given me the opportunity to "meet" people I would not normally meet in my daily life. A pay to blog site will not attract the same crowd, and I don't want to be on that site. I have read blogs from teenagers that just needed a place to vent and instead found friends and in some cases parental figures that have helped them, that wouldn't happen on a pay site. I have read blogs from people who are basically homeless and writing blogs from free access at the library, that wouldn't happen on a free site. Not worth it to me.
Yesterday I was sure I would move to LiveJournal to keep the Xanga feel. Today I am sure I will move to blogger. The one thing blogger has is the ability to add feeds and URL's from other sites to a reading list, including the LiveJournal sites. Now if only I could figure out some of the bugs! I'm sure blogger will undergo a significant change in the next couple of years so hopefully they'll make it easier and more beginner blogger friendly for people.
I found these pictures on my phone.I have no idea if this is me, or someone randomly grabbed my phone. It doesn't look like me.
I tweeted this. Kohls is always an excellent source of amusement to me. What the heck are "eco dynamics" in a pair of pants? That's can't possibly actually mean anything.
The 2nd floor hallways are being renovated in our office building. I find the carpet distracting. I really like the colors. Much better than those 1st floor people got when they were renovated!
