Is it silly to still have a xanga?

Asked by live_rose (1223points) June 7th, 2009

Does anyone remember the ancient social networking site that was xanga. i use it daily to upload icons . . .a pointless hobby but my pride and joy none the less. Is it pointless to Keep a xanga when everyone else but my iconer friends have forgotten about it?

No, not if you enjoy it. Especially if you keep your work someplace off site too.

So long as it brings you enjoyment, it’s not silly at all.

Hell, I’m almost forty, own a house, professional job, husband, have a daughter, etc. and I still read comic books every week. Haven’t missed one since I was twelve. I don’t consider my hobby the least bit silly.

And neither should you.

I agree – not if it makes you happy. I still have a MySpace, although I don’t go there anymore – because that’s where I blogged – and they are still there…I might want to add to them someday.

No, I don’t think so, even though I didn’t know what a xanga was until I read this question. I thought it might be some kind of primitive skateboard or possibly some sort of hair device.

I still have my xanga, and I use it to update new developments in my life to the people there I can’t contact any other way. I thought about shutting it down, but I’ve had it for many years, and just can’t bring myself to kill it.

I did however kill my FaceBook account and will do the same with MySpace pretty soon. Those two serve no real purpose for me, and I very much dislike them. If people are looking for me, they need to come to Fluther.

Oh that reminds me, I need to kill my Askville account. Anyone want to buy some Askville gold, cheap?

No, I miss a lot of things about xanga.

I think if you still like using it then don’t delete it. I still have my xanga account and even though I am sure nobody reads it anymore, I still enjoy writing in it. I love to go back and read the old entries.
