A few colleagues asked me for some help – they are going to be setting up a blog for a project. I thought I’d check out Vox because I knew that it allows posts to be private.
- First problem: no online tour. So I had to sign up for the service just to check it out. In other words, I married the girl before dating her even once. That sucks.
- Second: no Safari support. I usually use Flock, but my colleagues are much more likely to use Safari.
- Third: nasty interface. When you’re viewing your own blog and are logged in, you get a pilot’s dashboard with links all over the place.
- Finally: seems slow to refresh, slow to switch pages.
When you’re in the private, publishing parts of the blog, your main navbar still has links to Explore and other public, social pieces of Vox.
Not impressive! I’ll stick with WordPress, thanks.
