Not so long ago, in fact it’s just few months ago, Jux was introduced into social media. The main purpose of this is to give an easy way to bloggers who does not have very in-depth experience and technical knowledge in blogging to have an enjoyable and productive life as a blogger.
This publishing platform allows the user to present their works in a portfolio format that is streamlined. Basically, what this aims is to fill the gaps in Blogger and Flickr and to make the blog of neophyte bloggers looks more effective and professional. This will allow the user to post quotes, videos and photos, do slideshows and even do a countdown is a very user friendly interface.
To able to experience this, you have to visit Jux.com and have yourself registered. I have done it myself to secure my name availability. Immediately after I signed up, I was given options of what kind of post I want to do. Options I have are to post a block quote, an article, a countdown, a slideshow, a photo or a video. I chose to do an article. To my surprise, I was also given a chance to send my post to the world through facebook, twitter and email, options that I also have with my existing blogs. Editing the blog is also easy; options to edit its title, blog description and byline are available.
Compared to other blogging platforms, Jux is totally free to use. It also does not have any advertisement which most of the time is present in other blogging platforms. Having this, gives an opportunity to truly express what or who the blogger is without competing to advertisement within the blog. This ensures that when a reader visits your blog, the attention is on the blogger’s post 100 percent. But since this platform has been around for a few months, we can expect more improvement and changes from time to time. This is one way to improve benefits of bloggers and readers at the same time.
As expected, there are possibilities of basic charges to incur on certain features of the blog in the future. Possibly themes and every rate of exposure, but this is just an assumption. Of course we don’t want to eliminate the fact that the creators of this platform will need funds to support its users and also need to earn to support themselves. That is just normal and should not be taken against the developer.
Few things that are not yet available on this are the option to write comments on videos and photos uploaded by the user. It does have yet the ability to have the blog followed on RSS yet, (rest assured developed have promised this is being developed). I will be looking after this feature in the future, hope it would not be that long. Have you tried it or planning to create one? Share your thoughts about your experience with Jux.
