“Where’s the blog?” in Windows Live Spaces?

Remember those old Wendy’s commercials where an old lady yelled “where’s the beef?”

Well, let’s play “where’s the blog?”

First, let’s pull up a list of the most recently posted Windows Live Spaces. I did at 8:29 p.m., which is where this list came from. It didn’t really matter, though. I’ve been watching for the past few hours and the results are pretty much the same.

Aside: as a “blog service” Live Spaces is DAMN SLOW.

http://pebblesstone.spaces.live.com/blog/ has one entry, but first thing that actually looks like a blog. But, low octane post all about her kids.

http://soccerluver7.spaces.live.com/blog/ has one entry with one line of text which cracked me up: “I’m bored” it says. Tell me about it! Nice soccer background, though.

http://muayad86.spaces.live.com/blog/ SAYS “There are no entries in this blog.”

http://09151989.spaces.live.com/blog/ has one post that says “this blog is intentionally left blank.” Oh, thank you! I might have gotten confused about that and thought it was blank by accident.
http://bibliofly.spaces.live.com/blog/ has one post, just a repost of something on MSNBC.
http://rasiya.spaces.live.com/blog/ has one post, just a group of photos.
http://emythepiggy.spaces.live.com/blog/ has one post, just says “first day of school was stupid.” Yes, apparently.
http://tf-live.spaces.live.com/blog/ has one post with some naughty words.
http://carbendink.spaces.live.com/blog/ has one post with one word: “hey.” Is this code for “Scoble is stupid for trying this.”
http://anandthakker.spaces.live.com/blog/ SAYS “There are no entries in this blog.”
http://campbell1959.spaces.live.com/blog/ has two posts about summer vacation and the poster’s dog.

So, that’s 50 posts. None of which have anthing like a blog that I usually read, but let’s assume I’m an elitist toad and that I should read any blog with two posts or more. That leaves one blog out of the past hour’s worth of posts! That, for those doing the math at home would come out to 2%.

I’m tired. These things took more than an hour to do because the service is so slow. Gotta do other work. I’ll try to do the same for the other blog services (will need to take the posts off of weblogs.com cause they don’t expose their most recently posted the way Live Spaces does).

  1. PS You can read more of me at cyquick.wordpress.com

    What I hate most of all about blogging is the fact that I cannot delete my early comments of 15 May in other places, or indeed any comment. I can edit my own work on my own blog. I cannot edit my own work on the blogs of other people. I do wish everybody would feel free to delete my comments. This lot for example. Is it not crying out to be deleted? Yap yap yap. Cy

  3. Further from Cy

    I am surprised that #55 worked. I thought the thing was closed and the guy above (I cannot find his name above or below) had somehow wound up the thing. I do not think the discussion is any more pointless than asking the questions “Why are we here, and what is our purpose in life?”.

    The answer is obvious of course. We are not here to please or placate some imaginary guy in the sky, we are here as mindkind to give conscious control to what was previously an inexorable automatic natural process. We have clawed our way up from the gloopy puddle hit by lightening to being able to blog, planet-wide, the supreme accomplishment of any animal species.

    Given this splendid progress, we might as well carry on and educate the six-billion strong moronic mass, eliminating the canker of theism from their harried mini-minds. Also, Eurosport should cover the entire bike race, not just the end. And Doo-Wop should be played more on the radio.

    I have just found the guy’s name. It is 9400 so you can see what happened. I was just not ready for the whole uncompromising edginess of the thing. Cy

    I would just like to say that I think it is better when a comment BEGINS WITH the name of the commenter, rather than, as in this set-up, the name’s being at the end like a signature. No, I have changed my mind. Leave it as it is.
