The great blog dispute

Feeling “type-y” today… it’s the equivalent of chatty, just in blog
speak instead.

There are several versions of blogs out there; the “ready to be posted
to, comes along free with your profile” accounts, which you’ll see on
sites like MySpace; the “slightly modifable blog” that serves solely
for blog posting and allows you to change colors, fonts and
backgrounds, such as Blogger; the “slightly modifable blog + friends”
which is essentially the same format as above, but emphasizes the
“friend” aspect of blogging more; and finally, the “fully editable
blog”, such as WordPress or Cute News (not that these are of
equivalent powers, they just fall into the same catergory of blog).

I have several blogs. One on Myspace, a few on LiveJournal, one on
Blogger, and I hope to someday convert my blog over to WordPress
(although there’s been talk of this conversion for nearly a year now,
and no results yet). One difficulty I run into; each type of account
is used by different friends… and it’s difficult to get their
updates regularly, and to ensure they’re getting yours as well. Since
switching over to Blogger, I have no “friends” list that exists beyond
my website frequenters. I still check my friends page on livejournal
to see what the most recent updates are.

I signed onto my livejournal friends page today and commented on a few
friend’s blogs for the first time in months. It’s not that I don’t
want to know what they’re doing, I’m just a slacker when it comes to
keeping up on even my own blog, let alone others. To exemplify my
slackerism, I’m out for now :)
