Sad times. Vox is closing its doors. Vox was the first blogging platform that I chose to use. Its robust privacy settings, encouraging community spirit, and ease of use inspired me to jump on the blogging bandwagon in a way that I hadn’t done before. Oh, I’d contributed to the millions of existing blogs by starting a blog on Blogger and other platforms. But, Vox is the one that got me going. On September 30, it will be over.
Vox is going out with style, though. True to form, their customer service is excellent. They sent an email informing users of its demise and how to port blogs over to a new platform. I’ve just imported my entire blog to WordPress in under five minutes. Kudos to Vox and WordPress for that!
While I am sad to see you go, Vox, I am thrilled to be on WordPress, the platform that I’ve recommended to all clients professionally. (Maybe that kind of distinction is what killed Vox…) Here’s to a new start!
