  1. I’m sorry but I am NOT a fan of xiaxue. for one thing, her blog’s ugly (gosh. I hope no fan of hers is reading this!) secondly, her blogging is so… messy. idk. maybe it’s just me. but me and my friends really find that she’s just wanting the attention.

  2. I have my reservations about the way she blogs too, but she’s got every right to blog the way she wants, especially since she became infamous because of it (judging from her no. of hate comments). Still, the popular way isn’t always the right way. While others may construe Xiaxue’s blog as what all Singaporean blogs are like, we shouldn’t worry too much about that but instead continue blogging as we see fit. Have faith and take time to show the others that blogs can be so much more.

  3. I’ve never actually been to her blog before. But I remember seeing an icon for her blog which had the slogan “the blog EVERYONE’S reading”.

    So I for one will choose not to just because…. heheh.

    By the way thanks for acknowledging my polyblog. Poser Nation has a nice ring to it dunnit? heheh The title was a bit misleading as it was a themed title of the month. We’re really known as Bastardisation of the East. But a name’s a name.

    PS Kevin: I really ought to have checked up on your follow up to my comment regarding your podcast interview sooner! I will get round to a reply soon….
