The first person I sold today was an old black man.. hid wife aS Japanese.

When I met up with Steve at 2 I told him I only had 1.. he said I was slow walking and he picked up 4 in the apartments quick. I knew he was lieing.. but still.. I knew I had to pick up more than 2 on the next drop.. shooting for 5 on the drop. I picked up 3.

The first girl I file was from Malaysia. Unemployed. Cash. The girl was really nice.. her dogpeed on the floor and she stepped it.

Next guy was a therapist. Totally could have gotten him for more than one.. but he didn't want me inside cause of his dogs and they were barking like crazy and he had to use my phone to pay by credit card and all.. I was too afraid of him folding to get more. Just wanted to get money and get out.

Next guy was from... ummmmmm.... north Africa?? Idk. He got sketched while looking for his money but I still closed.

Met up with steve at 2. He confessed that he only had 1 the 1st drop.. picked up one more on the second. I asked what he wanted to do.. he said he wanted to go knock some together cause he always hits a banger with me.

I should have said no.. I wanted to hit 10 today.. at least 7. Beat my high day at the minimum.. all I needed was freaking 2 more to have a high day! I could have gotten at least 4 between 5:30 and 7:30.

But I went with Steve.. Because I have fun with him. Took us a while to get into one of the lock ins.. but the lady we came in after was pretty funny.

He got a 2 banger like he knew he'd get. He was able to fake it into 2.. so we both had 4 before people started getting sketched and we left.

I know I should have went out alone for the last drop. Money motivated. But honestly.. I wanted to be able to wake up next to Steve. Wake up tomorrow in a better mood than I did today and have 10 in before 5.

This morning, I woke up next to Andrew.. with Travis at the door. He must have felt satisfied to see me in Andrews bed. But I was cranky over it. I don't like being told what to do.. or who to sleep next to.

I woke up in the best mood EVER 2 days ago.

The last thing written in here is from 2008???? Seriously.. does anyone have an E-Mail address or phone number for the mods of Blurty? I understand, it might not be worth it to set up paid accounts. But honestly.. i like Blurty.. and i know i'm not alone. I'm willing to send a check in the mail to their home address. All i want is to make a style and put a song on my diary. WTF?

Activity? Anything? [20 Dec 2008|05:18pm]

Create your own Blurty journal and instantly become part of one of the fastest growing communities on the web.

It states this right on the front page. However, the news has not been updated in 2 years, no suggestions have been made in over a year and most of them not replied to...every community I've come across is dead, and so many user accounts are dead.

I think that, especially if blurty is going to offer "paid accounts" (which I don't see anywhere) they should at least start updating the site, or something. I think blurty could be pretty cool, but nothing gets updated, and who would pay for that? Sites like livejournal flourish because they are always offering new things, updating a lot even if it's just to say things are going well.

Users know that their money is being put to good use, and people WILL throw out 5-10 bucks a month to sites where you can visibly see that they are trying to improve for the users. I used blurty a long, long time ago. 5 years ago, at least...and it looks exactly the same as it did.

I suggest that the blurty team starts getting in gear and making the site worth using again. Because it seems like most people don't even have a -reason- to use it.

PAID ACCOUNTS? [09 Sep 2007|12:41pm]

secrethoughts
When are paid accounts being offered? I know there's been talk of it for the past three to four years. I would be more than willing to pay for an account because I find that the regular accounts are really limiting, especially the ten friends limit, which I know a lot of people really dislike. I know tons of people who would be willing to pay for this feature...

I think that Blurty should allow posties to embed videos in their journals. I know that it can be a security issue, but as this is an adult community and we should be able to make that decision for ourselves.

Could Blurty have an Instant messenger?? Kinda like Yahoo and AOL and all the others do?? It would be great. Just a suggestion.

When will Blurty be introducing the 'change name' feature? I would like to suggest that they do, soon. Thanks.

Friends list [18 Nov 2004|12:13am]

sleepyhouse
All my entries are friends only so I need to add people back who have added me to their friends list but have run out of places! Would it be possible to allow more than 10 friends?

Also when are paid accounts going to start as I'd pay simply to be able to have a larger friends list and have a few extra personalise options.

My Suggestions. [27 Oct 2004|09:58pm]

It would be nice to have the login screen, or anywhere else that you enter your username and password to be encrypted. I noticed that Live Journal does it and I think it's a great idea.

strange < wbr > tags inserted into my page, which breaks XML [08 Sep 2004|03:28am]

[ mood | bouncy ]
[ music | my Puredata Trigger Gang Bang work in progress ]

If you type a really long word in a journal post or title (or maybe somewhere else too), the Blurty system breaks it up into smaller words with the <wbr> tag. This is all well and good in HTML, but in XHTML and XML it breaks the page, because it should have a closing </wbr> tag or be self closing like lt;wbr />. I put in a Support Request and they told me to make a suggestion, so here it is.

Todo list navigation/calendar highlight, skip empty days, RSS friends, month view community posts [23 Aug 2004|09:56pm]

claudiusmaximus
[ mood | cheerful ]

It'd be really handy to have a link to the todo list page in the logged in navigation menu. There's even a lovely little space just aching to be filled to the left of the calendar.

That's given me another idea - how about dates with deadlines for todo list entries being able to be highlighted via the calendar view style system? Maybe set a variable to a colour value that depends on %done - I'm thinking green for 100% with yellows and oranges in between to red for 0%. Perhaps have a set of different colour themes to chose from.

Another thing: in journals with only occasional entries it's a pain using the day view to browse through. It would be great if there was a flag you could set to skip empty days when navigating to the next or previous page, or maybe have both a "next day, previous day" navigation thingy and a "next day with entries, previous day with entries" navigation thingy. I wondered whether it would be possible on an empty day page to reload the next page in the right direction with Javascript but then I read that Javascript isn't allowed in styles so I thought no more about it.

One last thing for now: it would be great to be able to add RSS (or Atom) feeds in a way that would make them show up on your friends page, even if you didn't have the ability to add Blurty comments. If you could add comments, it could be useful for communities for feeds to be added to their posts.

Actually one more thing: on the month view it says "Here are the subjects of all posts by user claudiusmaximus in August, 2004." - this is slightly inaccurate as it doesn't display posts in communities. I think it should display posts made by the journal owner in other community journals, because otherwise it is a nightmare trying to find posts that you've made in the past if you can't remember which community you posted them in.

That's it for now, really.

RSS 2.0 feeds for syndication [17 Aug 2004|08:33pm]

claudiusmaximus
[ mood | geeky ]
[ music | Devin Townsend - Ocean Machine ]

Blurty provides an RSS 0.91 feed for each journal - mine is at http://www.blurty.com/users/claudiusmaximus/rss. The problem is that the feed is very minimal - it doesn't even have the date of the entries - so it isn't very useful. What would be much better is an RSS 2.0 feed instead, or an option of various types of feed.

I used the Blurty style system to make an RSS 2.0 feed, I wonder if Blurty admin would like to incorporate this (in some modified form) into Blurty? The styleid is 117685, you can use it with an URL like http://www.blurty.com/customview.cgi?user=claudiusmaximus&styleid=117685 replacing claudiusmaximus with the username of the journal you want to feedify. I'm going to start work on a version for friends pages, I'll edit this post with the styleid when I get it finished.

EDIT: here are the RSS 2.0 styles I made:

  • 117685 - claudiusmaximus-lastn-rss20-full - the latest journal posts, only works if all your posts are valid XML
  • 117695 - claudiusmaximus-lastn-rss20-headlines - just date and subject
  • 117694 - claudiusmaximus-friends-rss20-full - the latest journal posts, only works if all your friends' posts are valid XML
  • 117696 - claudiusmaximus-friends-rss20-headlines - just date, subject and poster

Phone Posts [16 Aug 2004|09:01pm]

jaded_riah
[ mood | cheerful ]

As a former livejournal member I am accustomed to the "phone posts" option in which paid members of livejournal were allowed to post entries by phone. I thoroughly enjoyed this privilege and as a new Blurty user would love to see this become available. I fully realize that it takes some time and money to get phone numbers for the member to call and be able to post and I think that if other members are as excited as I that they would be willing to help get the ball rolling on this. Just a suggestion.
Thanks,
Moriah

User styles for Month, Entry, To-Do, Icons, Memories, Profile? [16 Aug 2004|09:53am]

claudiusmaximus
[ mood | geeky ]
[ music | Cypress Hill - Another Body Drops ]

Are there any plans to enhance the Blurty styles system to allow user-created styles for these pages? In order of priority, the ones I would most like first, using my journal for examples:

  1. Month
  2. Entry
  3. To-Do
  4. Icons
  5. Memories
  6. Profile / Full Profile

I know implementing these would not be entirely trivial, but I can't see any impossibilities. Perhaps I could help code it? I have some 1337 skillz ;-) (Well, perhaps not 1337, but at least 1335 or so...)

(insert marketing spiel here about how it would set Blurty apart from other LiveJournal-based sites in a really good way)

i have no idea if this suggestion has been made before considering i just joined recently, but i would really enjoy having a more vast selection of blurty themes and mood icons since i am only a free user and are limited on what i can do to make my blurty impressing.

Music [06 Jun 2004|04:56pm]

I think that there should be a way to add music to your blurty. Through an override, or a blurty tool without having to make a style.

yrstruly
for livejournal, there is a program called lj-book that allows you to convert your journal into a pdf. apparently, there is nothing like that for blurty.

since this is my only source of journaling, i would really like some way to be able to convert my entries into a pdf. please look at my support request to get more information

Style creation [15 Mar 2004|10:18am]

sheep4859
On the style creation page, there is a drop-down menu listing system styles on which to base a new style. It would be convenient if that menu included the user's own styles as well as the system styles. At present, if I want to base a new style on one I've made previously, I have to go to the edit styles page or the style browser to look up the style ID number. I'll grant that I'm lazy, but it would be cool to save the extra step.

Support: FAQ References [18 Feb 2004|04:37pm]

ism
Sometimes while working in support, you run across a request that needs, or could best use, a whole FAQ category referenced. I think that it could be a good thing to change the currently unlinked items in the "Reference FAQ" field that set apart different FAQ sections (such as "[ Customization ]") to actually reference their whole respective FAQ category instead of referencing nothing at all.

Sorry if this is confusing, but I can't think of any better wording.
