The more eagle-eyed among you will have noticed the new MySpace link on the right. What can I say? Some sort of cyber madness drove me to acquire a MySpace profile. I guess there’s some kind of ego thing at work here – wanting to stamp as much internet territory with my name as possible. Hey – it beats urinating on lampposts.
Anyway, I can’t say that I’m particularly impressed with the MySpace set-up. It’s all rather drab, clunky and workmanlike. There’s no finesse or sophistication to it. I much prefer good ol’ Blogger. Customizing MySpace is a complete pain in the A too – in the end I had to download some pre-written code just to make my profile look half decent. Unfortunately it doesn’t spruce up the MySpace Blog section so I don’t think I’ll be particularly dedicated to keeping it up-to-date. My devotion to Blogger will continue unabated.
The only good thing I can say about MySpace is it’s an opportunity for a spot of self-advertising on the World Wide Web. And it’s free...
I’d only recommend it if you’re terminally bored.
(But if you already have a profile and want to join my friends list – feel free!)
