What white/orange/blue blogging site did I use in 2002?

Help me find this blogging website from circa 2002! It had a white/orange/blue minimalist layout and few members.

Back in 2002, I desperately wanted a LiveJournal, but didn't have access to an invite code. I went in search of another blogging website and used sites like opendiary and diaryland. I also used a blog website whose name I've forgotten completely. It had far fewer members than most blog sites, and featured a very clean, minimalist layout. The blogs had a white background, and each entry was in a box with a light blue dashed border. The subject line and date for each entry were in orange. If I recall correctly, the newest entries by members would show up on the front page of the site. What website was this? Does it still exist?

Pitas? Looked like this in 2002. Even as I'm typing it, that doesn't sound right but wherever it was I feel like I had an account there too...

Best answer: This old pitas page has a sideblog that has a few more tools: pitas, xanga, webcrimson, upsaid, diaryland, blogger/blogspot, livejournal, conversant, 22blog, blogged up, easyjournal, blogdot, m-blog, free open diary, newsisfree (news portal), bloggingnetwork, electricdiary. Most are defuncy and the Wayback machine is super slow tonight. Anything sound familiar?

Response by poster: It was Upsaid! Here's what it looked like in September 2002. Thanks so much.
