One brand of blogs that range from free to enterprise network blog engines is from Six Apart.

Team Vox have just announced an exciting new addition to the Six Apart family. They saw a need for something that was placed between the quick status updates of Twitter and Facebook and the long form posts of “classic” blogging. The solution is called TypePad Micro, a new free level of TypePad that is streamlined for microblogging.
TypePad Micro is great for the blogger who wants to easily share stuff from around the web to a large audience. The opinion sometimes heard on the street corner that makes Vox unique, and one of the best places to blog on the web, is that Vox always has been—and always WILL be—the best place for “friends and family” blogging, where you’re in control over who sees what.

Have you begun using any of the Type Pad blog options, we would be interested in hearing your thoughts. To see how Kevin maintains two websites dedicated to Formula Simulator racing visit http://www.simdeck.vox.com
