Much to my dismay, I found myself creating a MySpace account yesterday. My brother, sister, and mother have been on for a while, and I've been able to see them without an account. But this year my sister is posting one picture per day... and if I want to see them (which I do) I had to create an account.

I'm not sure why I'm leary of
MySpace, I just seem to hear more negative than good about it. I'm quite happy here at Blogger, making my blog and reading my friends blogspots.

Oh well, I'm there, and I've tried to make my account as "private" as possible. We'll see how it goes. Luckily, the "Delete Account" option is prominient in the Settings section.

Does anyone have anything positive / encouraging to offer about MySpace?

I have been using MySpace for years and I really like it. I like that I can customize my page and put on music to match my mood. I post pictures and send notes to my family and friends in a fast and easy way. One of my friends has forced me to create a Facebook account recently and I am not liking it nearly as much.

Plus, since you like to blog you can post in both places with the same blog and save some footwork.

It is a very user friendly environment and you can keep your profile private and choose who you share with. The only thing you need to watch for is that the url is a .com and not something else because that is how they are able to hack your account. If you can manage that then you will be fine!

Welcome to MySpace...look me up sometime. :-)

Being a writer, I use it to promote myself and to connect with other writers--both inside and outside my genre. My niece and nephew and a lot of our DSG people are on there, too. But I've been known to deny friend requests. My friends are mostly writers, have something to do with writing/reading, or musicians in the genre of music I listen to: alternative.

I really like it. Feel free to friend me as well. I'm under Celise Downs
