    i know its sorta dying down these days, but do you have a "blog"?

    to be honest, most of the blogs i've read, and even from my own friends', all appear to be rather self important, and not really as diary like as i'd hoped. then again, i doubt you're gonna say half the things you'd wanna say with everyone watching.

    what do you get outta it?

    Weblogs...weBLOG, I dunno where that came from, they're pretty much what miccheck said. Some are interesting (ie, Maddox), but most aren't worth your while...

    No, I don't blog...

    I use a blog to keep track of what I've been listening to. I was always getting stuck when people asked what my musical tastes were... now I can direct them to a website :D

    ps. Yep... it's kind of geeky but it does give me a useful reference both to see what I've been running past my ears and also to suggest ideas for future listening.

    I guess you could say I do something like that. I post a short rant on what is going on (mostly music related) on my website. For some reason my *fans* seem to like it, so I do it. Just one more reason to have them keep coming back.

    No, of course not. I don't even like to sound of the word.

    the xanga to actually write in.

    the live journal because someone asked me to.

    I do a blog. Pretty much just a reminder of my days. I get mad at the livejournals where people talk trash about one another.
     

  12. Perhaps it is short for Butt LOG *shudders*
     
  13. I am a Xanga user at the request of our very own DarkMazda since...ummm...a year ago? Two years?
    Anyway, I just use it as a way to communicate my thoughts when I'm bored or procrastinating.
    Sometimes I'll get home and remember a few things that happened over the course of the day and I'll think to myself, "Wow, I should really post that on Xanga."
    I hope I never get to the point where I start thinking during the day, "Wow, I should really blog this when I get home." Or like this. Both would be equally as bad. :p

    Started a livejournal like 3 or 4 days ago at the behest of friends (although I'm not sure if they wanted me to find a larger audience or leave them alone).

    It's kinda fun.

    I do read a few focused, topical weblogs. I don't really read any personal blogs.

    I have a personal hobby site, but it's mostly for programming experiments, etc.
