Six Apart launches new blogging community
Six Apart is launching a new ad-supported blogging service, to "combine the publishing power of TypePad, the community aspects of LiveJournal and the years of insight garnered from Movable Type." Since Mena Trott wrote about the new service here it has been renamed from Comet to Vox.
"Half blogging platform for newbies (albeit with rich and deep functionality) and half social network" but I wonder, will Six Apart be giving it a professional abuse team? Will users of the new network be treated any better than LiveJournal users, and is Six Apart finding that LJ just doesn't make enough money to be worth taking seriously?
Before signing up for this new service potential users might want to look into how Six Apart has managed LiveJournal, it's a cautionary tale.
