Great shades of election 2012 where there is a great divide between those too poor to pay for xanga 2.0 and those xangians who can afford to pay for one year at least.
The richer xangians are hoping that xanga will reach the $60k mark so far if the fundraising remains steady we (the people who can afford to pay $48 per year) can be around to see xanga 2.0.
Since PPhilip wants to help the poor here is my suggestion:
That the facebook page is used to enlist some of the rich xangians to co sponsor "guest writers" to their blog. For example my long list of subscribers I could volunteer to copy and paste their blog onto my blog. PPhilip's home page on Xanga 2.0 will be having selections from my guest writers. After a while if a blogger becomes popular then that person can graduate and go to their own Xanga 2.0 blog.
( to see a larger view of the cartoon:http://calmblueoceans.com/71/)What makes a good father? Helping to raise a child or giving the child good genes? In a way some invitro fertilized women choose to have a "good father". And some "gold digging" women choose to have a great person to help them raise their child.
The best answer is both. Helping to raise a child and providing good genes is a nice thing but hard to achieve when most people have ordinary genes or just an ordinary income.
Whatever the attributes, all Fathers, stepfathers and helpers should be honored on Father's day.

Then there is a list of people that subscribe to me but I didn't subscribe to them back. That will probably be my next blog and I am sure this list with the @ overloaded the servers at xanga.
Here are two photos, one taken from a cell phone and one taken from a cybershot camera.The picture from the cell phone is horrible but it doesn't appear that bad on my computer before I uploaded it. Sometimes when the photo is horrible, I wonder if a person who is on mobile xanga just can't detect the difference?
Yesterday I did a horrible thing. Someone was criticizing one of my favorite blogger on the use of the term "they". The term they used to mean only use it in the plural meaning but the new pc (politically correct) way to not deflame a gender instead of saying he or she you can use the term they.
I rather say they drive bad instead of he drives bad or she drives bad. I rather say poor grammatical choice instead of bad grammar mainly because a lot of us make word choices rather than use bad grammar.
I am also glad that some of the internet people who know me recommended my comment.
Xanga has become like a small town to me. Whenever things happen, it doesn't happen in a vacuum. Trolls get their just deserts and friends get their validation of being on xanga.
Tempers flare but do they keep burning? In a way yes because that is the nature of xanga. However we also keep growing and keep getting more aware of each other. The caring folks have already formed ties elsewhere beside xanga. Xanga 1.0 will pass away but some people never forget, just because something clicked on inside of their souls.
I went to the swap meet and instead of spending money I made money. When you go to the swap meet near closing time some of the people are getting tired and want to go home.So yeah I sort of volunteer to help disassemble their tents and help put away the merchandise that they did not sell.Los Angeles has people who do not have a car. They often "borrow" a shopping cart and park it locked to a tree. A person who "borrows" a shopping cart often think that they did shop at their store and deserve a little bit extra. Besides the store owner I think the neighbors do not like this eyesore near their homes.
Instead I think most people would love to have flowers planted near their homes.Even though I am a botanist I am too lazy to look up this beautify group of flowers. No one is paying for my time and I do need to do other things besides naming flowers that no one would care to know.
