Would you blog on a site that didn’t allow you to customize the look of your blog?
I’m conflicted about this. Myspace was notorious for horrible looking profile pages but people seemed to like that option. Facebook on the other hand doesn’t let you customize anything and people seem to like that as well because you can always read everything and there is a consistent design.
Xanga lets you customize and there are been times peoples sites look horrible and unreadable and most other times they’re not.
Right now I’m building a site that allows blogging, but no customizing. I’m rethinking this aspect. But I know even xanga can be confusing when you’re on someones page and the navigation is all messed up.
