Conversion

Posted by penuruloki on August 6, 2006

I’ve posted in the past about how the greed of commercial blog sites has corrupted the blog vision, and why I moved from Xanga to WordPress to rebel against their limitations. The worst offender has been MySpace, which lacks full text RSS feeds. If you have to go look at the hideous site anyway, why bother with the feed at all? Even AOL got that one right with their blogs. I had one friend with a MySpace blog, and I quit going to her blog because it was so hideous.

But now she has converted! She’s moved to LiveJournal, which is still a commercial blog site, and does still try to create its own little miniature universe with subtle little walls to keep its users bound to the mother site. But it does have full text feeds, and LiveJournal does support OpenID, so I can consider her saved.

The world just got a little brighter.
