I loved 2005. It was the year I was most active here, and when I felt closest to my Xanga friends. But it was also the year MySpace started stealing everyone, and by 2006 most of the people I knew here had abandoned Xanga for that horrible, horrible site.
I also liked 2009. That was the year I came back to Xanga, and even though it felt different and I didn’t know anyone, I liked what it had become, with a lot of people posting more audience/feedback-friendly posts (as opposed to the mundane “I saw my friends, we ate at a restaurant” posts that used to dominate Xanga but are now more common on FB and Twitter). That format made it a lot easier to discover complete strangers here, whereas I used to only blog for people I already knew, or friends of friends.
