IBNeko's Journal-Nyo~!
Wow... /or a comparison of blogs.
I now have 8 journals scattered all over the net.

Of the 8,
4 livejournal typed thingies
1 pitas
1 diaryland
1 blogger
1 xanga

I have spent a total of 5 dollars all together.

Of all of these, livejournal typed blogs are still my favorite. They're still the most powerful in terms of customization, communities, and etc. Pitas is nice in that you can customize the html, but there's no userpics, and there's no communities. Diaryland is too... childish. And clunky. Like a bad website. Blogger... is overused, and thus slow. And also, I don't like the feel of it. I mean, it's kinda nice and all, but there's really no userpics, no communities, etc. Plus, it has Ads. Not that annoying, but compared to the other ones, like pitas, which doesn't have Ads.... Xanga has communities, but it doesn't allow customization. And it has Ads. Of course, neither does livejournal, but livejournal has free server code, which I'm using to run IBNeko.servehttp.com. OOooh, but Xanga has a lifetime account for $100. Psssh, like I'm actually going to buy it. I can just run livejournal on my own.

As of this right now, there's two other things I haven't tried yet.
First, there is DeadJournal, which is the same as liveJournal (same code, just a different server cluster). It requires $ to join. (well, so does LiveJournal). Assuming you can't get an creation code.
Then there's Movable Type. I haven't looked at this at all yet. Plan to do so in the near future.
Oh, and there's another journal thingie, similar to DiaryLand, but very childish. I've forgotten where. It's by the same guy/using the same code... In fact, Diaryland is actually an extended version of the pitas code, if I'm not mistaken.

ibneko From: ibneko Date: April 18th, 2003 12:22 pm (UTC) (Link)
hehe, nah, I only actively update this one and the one at IBNeko hosted on my computer ^^ ::points to the "IB Corner/Neko server status" icon on the recent entries page:: The other ones get updated once a month, if they're lucky...

sure... there's really no need to ask, is there? ::blinks confuzzledly:: or is the friends thing really that important on livejournal? o.O ::only uses the friends options to set filters when he needs to...::

Thank you ^^ ...lofulah gave it to me when I randomly asked for it ^^;;; ...you can go tell her she did a great job making it...

just added you :D i'm mami-chan by the way and you are? you don't have to give me a real name if you don't want, just a nickname i can call you. i think it's more friendly and personal to call someone by their nicknames then their usernames... oh but don't feel pressured or anything. i can refer to you by your username if that's what you really want, no problem. let me know :D

Hmmm.. My real name is Benjamin.. but eh, it get's used (and abused, "Benji" "Benny" etc.) enough in school, so "Neko" will do... or Neko-chan if you want, since you are older ^^ ::shrugs:: I really don't care too much.. so long as I can figure out that you're refering to me, anything will do...

Hey, I have just as many (I think) and I've spent no money . . .

I want to get a DeadJournal because it's prettier (black and purple, the two best colours) and there's a Willow mood set.

Xanga's as stupid as hell, but Kerry uses it . . . yeah, I know, I haven't been updating it, but I still read yours and comment, so no bashing me, right, Kerry?
ibneko From: ibneko Date: April 18th, 2003 12:32 pm (UTC) (Link)
mmm... you have 7? I think? not sure.....

Willow mood set? there is? find me the link to it and I'll see about grabbing it for you... it should look something like this: http://www.livejournal.com/moodlist.bml?moodtheme=140 'cept with the deadjournal server instead of the livejournal server... and a different moodtheme id...

Of course no bashing you! I just don't bother to look at your page anymore, and it's all cool.
I agree, it is stupid as hell. But I didn't even think about blogging until Natasha Kiessling arrived from Pakistan and told ppl at JFK about her Xanga site and how she uses it to keep in touch with friends. Since Nat, Nechama, and Amy soon had accounts, it seemed like a good way to keep Amy, who was about to move to Turkey, informed of my life.
And I could move, but it's too much trouble, and I have friends and acquaintances at Xanga.

I could give you a deadjournal activation code if you so wish, but you gotta promise not to laugh at the content of the journal it comes from :D

Re: DJ

Oooh, that'd be cool..

I, Benjamin Juang, otherwise known as Numair, hereby solemnly promise not to laugh at the content of the journal it came from.

Re: DJ

Btw, do you have a http://www.ujournal.org? Seems like yet another wonderful lj clone.

Re: DJ

Yep, I do... don't use it 'cept to read a friend-only journal that my friend has there...
