Vox is closing

September 16, 2010 | Uncategorized | , , , ,

I registered on Vox.com service at Aug 15th, 2006; four years ago. It was a nice blogging platform, members are not allowed to modify its theme but they can choose any cool theme designs that Vox provide. Here is screenshot of my blog located at http://sandal.vox.com :

But the service is nearly over, Vox is going to close its service on September 30, 2010. I don't know what the reason is. Perhaps the cost for server maintenance is pretty high while the financial benefit is less. Just my thought tough.

Right now if we open Vox homepage, we will see some tutorials of how to migrate blog posts on Vox into another platforms, TypePad and WordPress.

To be honest, my last article on Vox.com was on Jan 31, 2008. Two years ago.

It's because the access to my Vox blog is quite heavy, and I found My Opera is a lot better :up: Now I wonder if I could migrate my blog posts at Vox.com into My Opera account.

The Faces of Yogyakarta

October 30, 2008 | Uncategorized | , , , , ,

A few nights ago, I attended a launching party of a new website named wajahjogja.com made by some bloggers from Yogyakarta. Wajah Jogja means The Face(s) of Jogja (Jogja is refered to Yogyakarta), a blog that writes about people who reside in Yogyakarta.

People whom their name and story written in the blog didn't have to be a great or famous person. It could be some grocerry seller, a mad man living on the street, a pedicab driver, a student etc.

Wajah Jogja also accepts article written by everyone as long as it meets the following requirements:

  • Approximately 2500 characters
  • It has unique story and never published before
  • Using Bahasa Indonesia and pay attention on the grammar
  • A photo of the subject

Please also read the complete writing guidelines. If you can't read article written in Bahasa Indonesia, you can use Google Translate to translate the article.
