You’re all gonna hate me for this.. In the last month that I’ve been active in the blogosphere I’ve come across blogs on other publishing platforms that just irk the hell out of me. So this post is dedicated to them. ahehe.
1. Friendster – They claim service to over 40 million people. Pfft! Half of them are filipinos with the names “Certified Hottie” “Certified Adik” and a multitude of poseurs named after artists, specifically Hero Angeles. The first thing on my mind when I see people on friendster is “21st century zombies”
2. Multiply – What would you choose: A fake Hero Angeles account or a real KC Concepcion account? *insert evil laugh* Anyway, I would’ve liked Multiply if only it weren’t too cool. I mean, really, you can do anything on that site. Although, you cant put google ads and you cant comment on other blogs unless you’re logged. Bummer.
3. LiveJournal – They make cool people look like products of some charity event. I think they try to control the ballpark too much. Plus they’re interface is ugly. I mean, why do you have to see your photo every time you post something?
4. Blogdrive – Rhey will be reading this. So I’m not gonna say anything… ok, just one – some blogs you cant see unless you’re logged in. (sa iba hindi ka lang pwede magcomment pag hindi ka logged in, dito hindi mo man lang makita yung blog)
5. WordPress – Pag kinakarir mo na ang pagb-blog, you have to switch to wordpress. Seriously, they have anything and everything you could ever want for your blog. They even think of things before you do. But when you take out everything.. those widgetty stuffs aren’t the ones keeping the people on your blog. Sometimes they can even be distractions to writing.
6. Blogger – This is where I spend most of my time so I know how messed up it is. Ever heard of Spam blogs? They’re all using blogger.. ahehe. But I like the freedom on this blog. Not too uptight, not too indifferent. Just right for me.
before you barrage me with your own wisdom, I should remind you that this is my opinion.
alright, now you may start!
