Blurty was a journaling service based on the LiveJournal open-source code. Membership was restricted to users 18[note 1] and over, with 2,000,000 registered members since 2002.

In its early years the site had a small fannish presence, after a migration of users who could no longer access their main journals (LJ) and saw Blurty as a backup alternative.

Around 2000s, it was home to several profiles of fans and communities, including Fandom Wank for a brief period in 2003.

The site appears to have remained online and active until mid-2015, when a "Server Upgrade in Progress, Be Right Back" message began to host the main page.
