If I redesigned my LJ to look like a Blogspot page?!?
You'd all be really conflicted and go like "OH NO, there goes our trendiness! LJ does everything that Blogspot does, and it also adds friend lists! The only thing that separated the two were the cool designs that Blogspot has! Why, Jeffrey, why?!?"
Seriously, I think the only thing that makes LJ different from Blogspot is that most people read your LJ from their friends page, while you have to be coaxed into visiting the person's site to read their Blogspot - but that's not really true anymore, since both places offer RSS. Excuse me while I syndicate all your Blogspot pages so they're back on LJ whether you like it or not! I'm reading all your Blogger blogs from LJ, suckas. You've been one-upped!
Now, someone find the post I made back in 2001 or 2002 when I was back on Blogger where I talk about why LJ is so dumb for the same exact reason.

The embarrassment will never cease!
