Anyone who wants to blog and has time to spare this weekend should register for Vox. It’s really cool. So what if you already have a blog? This one has features you could link to your blog. See "See My Photos" in my sidebar? It’s a feed from my Vox blog, which I just created. Sure, I have an even snazzier link to Flickr using its cool, distinctive badge. And there are other ways to integrate audio in a blog using a music player like StreamPad or Pandora. But why not upload the good stuff on Vox where you can blog at the same time and control who sees your posts?
That’s another great feature of Vox. Not only can you have separate feeds for audios, videos, photos and posts. You can also control the "privacy settings" on Vox. You decide which of your posts, photos, videos and audios should be private, accessible only to your family and friends, and which should be public, open to anyone browsing the web.
And posting, uploading, on Vox is a breeze. Posts can be re-edited and published on the web as easily and quickly as on WordPress.
Vox also offers plenty of designs for your blog. You can change the appearance of your blog in a minute. Changing the design takes no time at all. You can also show off your collection of books.
You can also cross-post to TypePad and LiveJournal. If you enable cross-posting and post on Vox and check the cross-post box, a summary of your post will appear on your TypePad blog or LiveJournal with a link to your Vox post.
Now that’s one feature which possibly works even better on another blogging platform called Multiply which I read about in TechCrunch. Anything posted on Multiply can be cross-posted in full to TypePad and Blogger. Multiply also has privacy settings. But Vox is cool. Check it out. Register now and wait for the invitation email to pop up in your mailbox that will let you start blogging on this hip, new creation of Ben and Mena Trott and all the good people at Six Apart.
