Well kids, today we're going to add something to the growing list of things that Tom really hates. Today's topic is Xanga. Or not so much Xanga, but Xanga users. Not all of you are evil, but a lot of you are.
Here I go with another list:
- Hey, check out my Xanga site!
Let's get some shit straight. There is no such thing as a "Xanga". Xanga is simply the name of the service that you annoying people use. Their logo even says "A Weblog Community". You're using a BLOG, not an Xanga. Blog is short, for weblog. Drop the "we". Get it? Right. So no more of that, it makes you sound really annoying to the rest of us who use real blogs.
- How do you say "Xanga"?
OK, I found out I've been saying it wrong. I said it "ex-an-guh" when in actuallity its "zang-guh". My bad. Still though, Zanguh? Sounds like something you'd find on saturday morning cartoons. Maybe I'm being nitpicky about the name, but look at all the random shit people sent in about how THEY, THE USERS, use the word: go there and read it... I don't have the heart to type that crazy shit.
- All that extra crap!
All that other stuff gone, there's still the question of all that weird stuff on the side. "Xangas I read", "People who read my Xanga", "People who subscribe to my Xanga" who the hell cares! Thats just more space that you're not using and its taking up space! Damnit.
So, if Xanga's that bad, what do I recomend? Blogger.com. That is THE place to put a blog. No extra un-needed crap, more advanced users who are older then the age of 12, and there's a lot more freedom for design and originality.
