What is the deal with LiveJournal? 80% of my friends who blog, use LiveJournal. I think LiveJournal is great in a lot of respects as in you get to view all your friends entries in one place, privatize your posts and more.
But seriously, why do all the layouts at LiveJournal, look like they are from the 90’s? Everything is very boxy, and dull. There are sooo many people who use WordPress and Textpattern and Blogger with beautiful templates but so far I’ve seen just one or two good templates on LiveJournal. I think it might be because a lot of people dont build templates for LiveJournal? Or maybe because the majority of users at LiveJournal are non-designers.
LiveJournal is owned by Six Apart. The same people who own Typepad. So if typepad can look so good, then why cant LiveJournal? Either way, I think LiveJournal should hire some designers to create some templates for them.
Another day, another rant.
