In my last post, I ranted about some of the negative aspects of Xanga 2.0. However, in this post, I want to emphasize the good things about Xanga 2.0. First, I find that it's a very smooth and reliable platform. I find that everything feels more polished, more cohesive and simply less confusing than Xanga 1.0. I also find that Xanga has done a great job of maintaining old posts and transferring them to this new platform (no easy task). These are great things to build on. Of course, it is still my hope that Xanga puts together some sort of front page. But this should be obvious to the Xanga staff, and my guess is that they're working on it. I also think it is imperative that Xanga becomes free again, if they want to ever seriously be considered as a viable option for most people. In other words, why pay for something that Blogger and many other sites offer for free?
