I just noticed that TV Dot Com will be removing Blogs, and thankfully, you can download your blog to archive it for posterity. At least they provided that small crumb. At first TV Dot Com had a lot of ads and money behind it, but I knew it would never grow into a big thing like IMDB or Wikipedia because it was too difficult to use. If you wrote a blog and forgot to click some arbitrary button for tags or category your whole blog would be lost. It was the most user unfriendly site I had ever seen. I just wanted to blab about TV shows I was watching, but it was torture. Instead of spending so much on ads, they should have put some money into web design. Then they fired the whole tech department, so even worse. If TV Dot Com was a network it would be NBC but without SMASH.
So, not surprised that it is removing all blogs. Now even less reason to visit it.
MySpace is also having a rough time, but they brought it on themselves. They offered free web addresses to people who used it, but then they just dropped the addresses. No tech support at all. Even if I google it I can't even find a mention of what happened to the email addresses. Like no one even got one, because they knew it was a desperate move and MySpace wouldn't be able to maintain them. I feel like a chump for ever even signing up for one.
Don't get me started on the Bakerfield Californian web site. They stiffed me, too.
Bakotopia had a little hiccup a while back, but they are hangin' in there. For now. But I have my eye on them
Thanks for letting me rant and rave--again.
