This is soo true - spot on man!
I use sub domains - just on domains I own... i don't really like the not having control over my content. Whether it is blogspot or wordpress.
I've played on kongregate for several months now. I love it! Great games. the chat rooms are sometimes filled with kids - but sometimes they aren't too bad.
Nice ideas. I just use the bookmarks that I have made so I know the sites to visit. Then i go back and read them - when I see posts I like - i leave a comment.
