This And That (Now With Hate!) 6:33 am-

So I signed up over at Diarist.Net to have my humble site listed in their Registry. Doing this goes against my personal beliefs. For one (and don’t tell anyone) I hate (like really hate) having my site being refereed to as a Journal, a Diary or a Blog. So it’s odd that I would have myself listed at this place. Of course in the end it is another hit or two.

And on that topic of hate. I also hate the places that pander to these people that find the need to run that kind of thing. Diaryland, Live Journal, and Blogger to name a few. These “hosts” deal the same bland and stereotypical look and feel to the internet like a guy who sells coke to a drug addict.

And I know a few people that use these services. So I know it’s not all bad what these places offer. But I wonder why they use these places? And I expect a reply to this because it’s something I’ve always wanted to know. How hard is it to setup and run your own website? It’s not that expensive, so that can’t be an issue. Find yourself a nice content management script (and not that fucking Movable Type) and get to it. Sure it’s not as easy as that. But at least try.

Because if I can do it anyone can. And I know my site is far from perfect. My html is crude and ugly. I don’t even properly use css. In fact I don’t even really know html (ok a little). But who needs to with such products like Microsoft Frontpage (not trying to pimp the evil empire, it’s the only one I know of)? So I say to you diarist’s, you journalist’s and you bloggist’s be creative and be original (or at least steal someone else’s hard work). Again if I can do it so can you.
