Xanga

Sorry no clever title. I’m not clever enough. I miss Xanga.com. It was a blogging site that was brilliantly laid out, highly addictive, your posts could gain traction easily and I met all KINDS of people. It was around pre-‘woke’ days, and before the internet was largely sanitised to the point of banality and mediocrity. This meant that you could find pretty much ANYTHING on there. Yes, you could find dumbarse racist accounts on there but guess what: YOU COULD JUST IGNORE THOSE ACCOUNTS. Imagine that as a concept. You know, the concept of “ignoring something I don’t like, moving on, and not shrieking on Twitter all day every day that it must be shut down because I don’t personally like it”. Of course the really bad ones were terminated – but there’s obvious levels of really bad on a blog site that is used by all ages from 13 on up.

But there was so much that the site owners let slide, and it was a massively richer experience because of this. I got talking to incredibly diverse, different and interesting people on there – lost touch with all of them once the original Xanga died.

Right now, it seems they tried to relaunch, but then stopped bothering again. The status is unclear. Whilst the login page is there, I’m not even sure if anyone can actually log back in. And that seems unlikely as that landing page has been sat there for at least 3 years now, and you can’t create a new account. Even if it did come back, you can imagine the hate-filled SJW mob infesting it like they have Twitter now, and making it an equally miserable experience. They’re basically like a form of cancer.

Xanga was the most accessible, interesting, varied, well populated social/blogging site out there. It will never be beaten by the glib, assimilated crap of Facebook, the autobot account closing trash fire that is Twitter, or the tedious anime infested Tumblr.

Xanga also represented the most interesting and enlightening times that you could, and will now EVER HAVE exploring people on the internet. And I miss it terribly.

R.I.P. Xanga. You were the best blogging site the internet ever had.

I'm a gamer. I'm a coaster. I am happy in general. We're all born by chance and we're all gonna die. That makes me no better or worse than you. Get over that fact and we'll probably get along. I comment on the Google news feed a lot. Oh, and I swear quite a lot.

    1. You’re lucky. Facebook is banality in a basket. When I deleted (not “deactivated so we can still sell your personal data every week”) my FB account not one single 1 of my ‘Friends’ even came looking for me – and they almost all had alternative means to contact me. That tells me everything I need to know about how genuine people on there are. 🤷🏻‍♂️

  1. I hear big things are coming with the 2nd phase of the Xanga 2.0 roll out which should occur in just in time for the 10th anniversary of the first phase. I know EdLives is very optimistic about it.

      1. Of course. Just be patient. You can’t expect these things to just happen overnight. Sometimes they take 5 or 10 or 20 years. In the mean time you can contact Eugenia about extending your subscription.

      2. I shouldn’t need a subscription to a blog site :/ I was never signed up to Xanga Premium. In any case I’ve this sinking feeling that it will be infested and controlled by the same kind of woke, shrieking idiots that have made Twitter a miserable, mind-numbing place to be.

      3. Actually that’s where I first discovered the woke crowd. After a while I started writing posts for the sole purpose of offending them. I wrote one called “Cutters Are Assholes” and oh boy did that provoke some nasty comments. Apparently cutting was a thing with the millennials and we were supposed to show only compassion and reverence for those who sliced themselves up an an expression of their inner pain.

      4. Damn, I mercifully missed all those types. Maybe that was because you were permitted the freedom to slap idiots down without your account getting terminated – ala Twitter.
