This time last year, I was still blogging daily on Xanga and the Xanga Team’s announcement had not happened yet. Xanga was still Xanga, and when I think back to that time, I don’t believe any of us regular Xanga users had any clues about the change that was going to happen. Whenever the Xanga Team updated, they never let us know the website was in a bad state. I’m sure most users knew that Xanga didn’t get the traffic it used to, and that it definitely was not the popular blogging website it once was, but I believe we thought everything was okay. The Xanga Team didn’t lead us to believe otherwise. We only found out when the announcement happened.
And looking back to March of last year, I never thought that WordPress would be where I blogged regular. A lot can change in a year.
And here, a year later, I am blogging on WordPress regular, and honestly don’t visit Xanga much. It’s a big change because Xanga was the first website I would visit every day. I do miss it though, the old Xanga. And next year, around this time, will Xanga still even be around? I don’t know.
I think I’m happier this year, though. I feel I can be myself on here and I lost that on Xanga in 2012.
Those of you who were Xanga regulars, this time last year did you have any idea the Xanga Team would announce what they did? Did you think Xanga was really that bad off?
