As previously mentioned, site’s that don’t work (or look dumb) in Netscape are ones that i generally ignore. I realize this isn’t some malicious conspiracy on the part of bloggers everywhere, but for your entire site to come up underlines in Netscape is something i’m sure anyone could easily fix. One such site is Conceited Much?. When i first saw its name on P.B i thought i would be terribly amused by it, but the only amusing thing was their old layout (featuring both posters kissing their mirrors and primping). They might be attractive (hell, they are), but they aren’t especially interesting. I want them to be, because i feel a certain kinship with any other person as narcissistic as myself, but unless someone can step in and explain the allure of their site i’m lost.
I feel that way about a majority of P.B’s consistently top10 sites, sadly. Maybe that’s a comment on quality over quantity, or maybe these people have too little life and too much time to talk about it (and, gee, neither of those comments sound familiar), but i just can’t bring myself to read them daily. More likely is the fact that i find weblogs extraneous and tend to veer more towards journal-like blogs for my personal enjoyment. I’ve evn finally ascertained the reason for /usr/bin/girl/’s existence (though i don’t really acknowledge it), and i actually stop by survivorBlog occasionally (though i refuse to send them any more traffic than they’ve already got).
On a more positive note, prolific is a great read (and seems to have temporarily) overcome their Netscape issues), geekgrrl dot log is rather witty, and i like /dan.el.ope/ just based on his indictment of an immature blogger who took a pot-shot at /usr/bin/girl…. oh, um…err… nevermind.
