What Is Xanga?

Now Bateeilee Blog will post What is Xanga?. Xanga is best described as a social blogging website. In many ways, it is similar to other blog hosting sites such as Blogger or LiveJournal. Users can choose to blog with text, photos, video, audio.

Xanga also allows a lot of customization to the look and feel of the blog. And, for those not artistically inclined, there are truckloads of templates to choose from. Can't find the perfect template? No problem. Just choose the closest to what you are looking for and then customize it to bring it in line with your vision.

So, How Is Xanga a Social Blogging Website?:

Xanga goes beyond being just a blog hosting site by combining blogging with social networking features. Along with creating your web log, you can join blog rings (similar to the groups found in other social networking sites) and add friends to your friends list.

The pulse is a mini-blog that is displayed on the site and is usually a one or two sentence blog about what's going on at the time. The pulse can also be sent out to your friends' cell phones.
You can also nudge other people, build up or purchase credits, and use credits to give people a "mini" (miniature picture).

Sounds Great! Why Use Anything Else But Xanga?:

So, is Xanga the right blog host for you? The best way to answer that question is to determine why you want to blog in the first place. Are you wanting to say something? Or, are you wanting to meet people?

Because it combines social networking features with blogging, Xanga is a great choice for those that want to start a web log and actively participate in a community of bloggers. It will give you a chance to meet new people which, in turn, can lead to more people reading your blog.

For those more concerned with the blog-side than the community-side, a more traditional hosting site like Blogger or LiveJournal might be a better place to start. Because they concentrate mainly on blogging, they have a fuller feature set. Thus, it becomes easier to customize a blog with templates, widgets, and link lists.
