Xanga is an online journal (otherwise known as a Blog) where people of ALL ages and ALL races, etc, can document their feelings, emotions, and life. It is like writing in a conventional diary or journal, only via the internet. While there are many stereotypes associated with Xangans (the popular, most used term for Xanga users) none of them are accurate.

- background of Xanga -

>>>>Xanga originated back in 1999 as a site for sharing book and music reviews. Driven by member preferences, it quickly morphed into a full-scale blog site, but it retains a marvelous ability to share reviews. Just name the song, movie, or book that interests you and Xanga grabs a link to Amazon.com, including a thumbnail of the cover. Xanga aggregates the links into a Top 50 list. Click the xTools button in the Links toolbar to comment on the site you're visiting, or post to your blog via e-mail. The attractive, fully WYSIWYG editor permits easy insertion of smileys, symbols, and links, and it automates the process of uploading and including images. You can try a free Xanga site, then upgrade to get more features and no ads.

It's easy to locate like-minded people among Xanga's 2.5 million users by checking out its blog rings. Members with similar interests can subscribe to one another's blogs (when someone subscribes or unsubscribes, you're notified). Xanga also gives the ability to subscribe without notification, a way to try a blog without risking offending the blogger by unsubscribing. Visitors can comment on your posts or give "eProps" to especially good ones.<<<<

A place where people steal livejournal icons/graphics and hot links them all over their own xanga without ever giving credit to the owner.
Some even go as low as claiming them as his/hers.
xanger user: "these icons are made by me, don't forget to credit!"

LJ user: "um...these icons are actually made by me."

xanger: "omfgstfubitch!!!Leave me alone you wh0re!"

Most make it a diary/journal type of site. Some jus put random things up which is better. The damn people who just post about their everyday lives really dont have any. They talk about whatever the hell they can come up with or remember. And when entries are 'emotional' its just because they JUST have to let everyone who might come across know it. Now, some xanga's are nice, with interesting pics, comical things, BUT most are lame and boring. Those people get ADDICTED to the damn thing!
Cool xanga: Checl this out (Pics laid out) We went there LAst week, it was great. Or... Kobe, he's the best (pic) Or... jus random, non boring things.
Lame xanga: Cheesy music playing/all text on all entries. Like... Today I felt so bad for doing that to Jasmine but she knew Mark was... Or... Im tired of trying to give you another chance, I know you love me and Bull S#!T
