Voxification

Like , I am contemplating switching from LJ to Vox. No particular reason, other than the fact that, as my life has changed, I think maybe it’s time to start a new blog. My LJ has a tone that maybe I don’t want anymore – not that I want to delete it all, but I think it’s time for “Matt Stratton” to have a blog, not “Mugsy Malone”.

Anyway, while I play around with Vox, I’ll be probably posting to both. But if you want to track-a-doodle along with my Vox adventures while being an LJ person, you can always add to your flist and follow along that way.

If you want an invite to Vox, just send me an email (matt dot stratton at gmail) and I’ll sign you up.

  1. I’m thinking about switching over eventually as well. I think I’m going to wait until after I change my last name, though. You men don’t have to deal with that. 🙂 Of course, I could just sign up as Laura-Gee. Initials staying the same, don’tcha know.

  3. What exactly is the difference between LJ and Vox?

  5. I’m still kind of working that out. At least one thing is that Vox seems to be less over-run with emo teens. But then again, that’s only a problem if you have emo teens on your flist.

    Vox seems to have more tools for integration with photos, videos, and audio. In that way, I think they’re trying to be more like MySpace, but without the suck.

  8. I *hate* myspace…

  10. Agreed. Hence the “without the suck” part. I guess what I meant was, it’s trying to do the thing wherein you can easily promote/display your audio work, video work, etc, along with your blog, except that they do it with some software that actually works, instead of blowing up, and then they don’t have to fix it because every teenager in the world lives on myspace no matter how much it sucks, so why bother having anything that actually works, since you’ve got your marketshare completely pwned already?

  13. I just signed up for an invite – I’m curious. I’m not sure I would do a whole-sale crossover, as I’ve been LJing for 5+ years and I’m not sure I could deal with restarting at this point, but it does indeed look interesting.

  14. I got that… I was just expressing the mutual hate.

  16. Yeah, my LJ goes back five plus as well, which is what makes me hesitant. A few years ago I had decided to leave LJ and move to a MT blog on my own website, and that lasted about three months or so. We’ll see. I think I’m seeing this more as separate blogs for separate things (I also use LJ a lot for communities, which is another reason I’d be loath to leave) – although ditching LJ would maybe make me invest in actually getting a “real” RSS reader working 🙂

  18. I’ve only known a couple of people to use Vox…they like it for what it’s worth…
    I wanted to ask you, how close are you to the big warehouse fire that’s been all over the news (even here in Canada)?
