It’s probably just a simple ploy to try to mimic myspace, but now xanga is offering us the opportunity to choose “friends.” It’s not enough simply to subscribe to the people you know–now you have to be “friends.”
I’m not sure I’m ready for this kind of commitment (grin).
I must say, though, I am hopeful that xanga will not delve toward myspace philosophies in other ways. If it even gradually begins shifting toward a collection of sites on which people paste sexually provocative photos of themselves for all to see (as myspace accounts, sadly, have the reputation of doing), then I shall abandon it altogether. And so, my new xanga-friends, if at some point I become strangely silent on here, do not be terribly surprised that I have forsaken the online journal universe…only please revert back to the archaic “emailing” method of commerce and communication (smile). For I will miss you.
p.s. “The North Avenue Irregulars” was quite entertaining (grin). Anyone up for “Rear Window” tomorrow night? Give me a shout…
