BLOG DROP [2]

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.

BOW!

End notes:
before you barrage me with your own wisdom, I should remind you that this is my opinion.

alright, now you may start!

BLOG DROP!

I was browsing around the net in the last two days and I came across some very interesting blogs. I wanted to link all of them, but I didn’t want to be associated with some. ahehehehe. That’s honesty for everyone.

A friend told me everyone’s blogging nowadays. Which is a bit weird considering I’ve been blogging since 2003… how come I didn’t notice. Apparently, the reason for my alienation is because nobody blogs in blogger anymore. They all transfered to wordpress or multiply.. darn! Some of my friends blog in livejournal and blogdrive which makes it more irritating. At least, nobody blogs in friendster anymore.

I just wished there was a pinoy blog directory…

maybe we should just put one up… no, maybe I should just put one up. But that would entail a website and that costs some money. C’mon do you really think creating a yahoo group for bloggers would work? blah! That’s gonna be filled with marketers in no time. Oh well.
