Web Trends

May 31st, 2002 Comments(13)

What web trends have you followed? Those that I'm still following are Megabook, weblog, webcams, 88 x31 buttons, blinkies, owning a domain and 404 pages. I find nothing wrong with trends as long as they don't start getting annoying. After all, even owning a website is a trend.

People who go out of their way to be different are kinda silly. "Everyone has this so I'm not going to have it!!!" You'll end up with nothing. o.O I have to admit though, websites with no original content bug me.

    I just got over livejournal and am into greymatter :p

    I used to blog, but found it to be too creepy all not on my server and stuff.

    I prefer Movable Type. Greymatter is just too buggy and take up way too much space. And all the rebuilding drives me crazy.

    Hrm. Tagboards are silly, in my opinion. And putting a big "Hiatus" sign is quite unnecessary too. Just go! Leave a small note and that's it. :)

    O.o There's also the teen domain trend... :P

    I see no point in tagboards. Makes it easy for spammers to spam you. But hey! Whatever floats your boat!

    i *almost* got a tagboard. but my online friend was too lazy to bother helping me, so i gave up.

    hey do I qualify as a teen domain bc I turn 20 soon :P


  8. Samantha @ May 31st, 2002

    No idea. But why are people going "yucks" about teen domains?

    What's wrong with having a blog only on your site? It's not as if blogs are all but crap outlets that lack content! ...are they?The article's slightly controversial, though.


  10. Samantha @ May 31st, 2002

    *Shrugs* It depends on what is actually on your weblog. For me, it is a crap outlet. The serious stuff goes elsewhere.

    oooh, i follow trends, and don't forget those quizzes dude!!! hahaha, those are like, the latest thing, i still have my lovely livejournal, i'm gonna get greymatter for my site tho, ahahhaa, can you say trendy? i didn't realise there was a 31X88 button trend going on...ahhh, i'm so outta it...

    oooh i got a tagboard, actually, i find it the same as a guestbook, i was planning on a megabook, but i couldn't find a decent host offering cgi/etc, so uhhh, i just got a lil tagboard, versatile...hehe, and you can just delete the post if people do spam, it's quite convenient, as easy as delete email-spams...
