I’ve been an avid Lovelyish fan since the blog started, mainly because I’ve had a Xanga site since I was a middle schooler. Long before the days of Facebook or Myspace (yes, Myspace) Xanga was the social media site to have.
Not only did all my friends have one, it was a one stop shop to find all the ridiculously sappy love quotes that used to take up our AOL Instant Messenger profiles. Don’t pretend like you didn’t have one, complete with faded color schemes and special symbols. Ah, to be young again.
As years passed, Xanga somewhat died out with my friend group. I still avidly visited the site, finding quotes (ones I hoped were much more mature than the junk I used to think was inspiring) and reading blogs. There are infinite amounts of Xanga’s solely dedicated to quotes, and I was one of those people who would spend hours reading through them. I have a growing list of my favorite quotes, and its still a hobby I have to this day.
Unfortunately, most of the Xanga’s I subscribed to died out. There just isn’t a market as much, and I’m sure those people, like me, have aged since they first created their site. Responsibilities kinda suck, but they happen as you age. I hardly any see updates, and that’s from almost forty different subscriptions.
Pinterest has become my trusty replacement. Granted, these quotes are found in GIF version, but I am able to find all my favorites in one handy place, rather than on a saved word document. Well, I suppose it is the same thing, but having a board named ‘The cold hard truth’ sounds so much deeper than having a private word document with the same name.
Lovelies, where do you find your favorite quotes? How do you save them?
