And so livespaces is finally giving up the ghost and turning itself in to the blog police for crimes against blogging. Must say I feel a bit bad for the old fella. I can’t help but raise as a smile when I view the lurid pink eye assualt of my old blog and the way you could arrange your ‘modules’ where I could concoct the most ridiculous lists that my strange mind could concieve.
I’m also vastly fond of it as this is the first place I found my ‘voice’ as a blogger. After a couple of years writing surreal posts on a discussion board, I felt that I wanted to write something that I could drive solely and the discussion boards had served me well in helping me carve out and create a persona with various idiosyncrasies and an extensive back story.
Blogging was a tremdous escape/avoidance as I mentioned in my previous post https://worldofsheds.wordpress.com/2010/09/14/new-resolutions-brave-new-sheds/
and I discovered some genuinely gut wrenching funny people through livespaces.
However, the frustration with livespaces was the inability to track your comments and to see whether anyone had replied to you. There’s also a huge amount of spam comments with links to korean porn or something which you’d have to delete (or forward to some open minded friends).
So, here I sit, anxiously waiting for my old blog to import into my new blog, like two worlds colliding. When I first started this wordpress blog I would copy and paste into livespaces and then I became enveloped in my long-time associate-apathy.
So, don’t be surprised if you see some duplicate posts, and don’t be surprised if you start coming across some totally off the wall, slightly blue stuff. It was very much 0f-the-era in a sense of humour style that evolved in that internet forum. As a much older, wiser and responsible (boring) Angel, I feel a bit more ‘responsible’ in terms of content! I know. Social conscience- a luxury of being in your thirties.
Anyway, be intersted to see what you think of the old WoS. I’m vastly fond of it, and I hope you learn to love it too.
