Started in the golden days of blogs vox for me was a LiveJournal without the html mess and to have to find hosting yourself for your media content, because in its early days LiveJournal was hosting only the text/html part. If I remember well it was advertised as a LiveJournal for grown up, in the days they where both own by Six Apart. It was very sleek, sad it never got to be popular amongst myspace, facebook etc.
But it seems grown up where more seduced by Facebook! But do you really express yourself there?
I rarely say that but I don’t know if it’s going to be missed.
