We’ve been bringing Xanga back to its roots as a blogging community.
As part of that, we asked a bunch of you for feedback about one of our
earliest features: blogrings.
The answer was clear; the vast majority of you use blogrings almost
exclusively to find other xangans who share your interests. So we
cleaned up the page a bit to focus on that, making the list of users
higher up and more prominent on the page. While we were at it, we also added a neat new feature (thanks to Justin!) which shows you related blogrings.
It’s pretty neat – say you’re in an awesome blogring like this one:i used to be gangster. i’m retired. - If
you were once a homie but retired your jersey, then this blogring is
for you. When the game gets too deep, you just gotta get out before
someone gets hurt. Nah mean player? Peace.
Related blogrings looks at what blogrings other members of your
blogring are in… and *shazam* – it recommends you check out equally
dope blogrings like this one (see what I mean – I seriously used to be
gangster):I check my hair in car windows & thats how I roll – Everybody checks to see what they look like in a car window, just make sure no ones in the car first!
Seriously though – if you’re checking out a digital photograph blogring, you can see other blogrings you might be interested in. It doesn’t just match you to blogrings with similar titles – it actually uses math to find blogrings that have similar members. It’s a pretty cool way to meet new Xangans.
Basically, blogrings will focus on their OG and continued purpose: to
help you find other Xangans who share your interests. Let us know what
