When we first came together in 2012 to brainstorm ways to bridge the worlds of blogging and social media, we laid the foundation of a new app, Pippit.Our vision for Pippit has always been to create a beautiful social media platform that highlighted strong blog content with tools for discovering and sharing helpful information as a new framework for social commerce. We shared the prototype of that vision last summer. With your wonderful support, Pippit was ranked as the #1 paid lifestyle app and #2 App of all paid apps.Because of our other work, family life and commitments, we have not been able to maintain Pippit and its community at the level that we envisioned. While we have seen great success with the app in many areas, the tech world is new territory for our team and we want to be able to dedicate the appropriate time, energy, and resources needed to carry Pippit to the next level, which we cannot do at this time.We have discontinued support for the app, but we thank you for your time, energy, suggestions, feedback, and the wonderful support that has come in many forms as we poured ourselves into this new endeavor!We look forward to seeing you again soon in the online world.With much gratitude,Josh Davis, Naomi Davis, and Joy ChoCo-founders, Pippit
The pippit twitter account has been inactive since November 30, and little to no mention of it has been made by any of the founders for several months. There is no word on whether the app will return.
In a performance worthy of the Grammys the folks at Social Media Marketing World sang the moving song “We Are Social”. The stirring performance is being hailed as the new “Give A Kidney” and we fully expect a full length musical to be written around this amazing song. If you want to feel like you’re being held by a choir of angels for 7 thundering minutes of musical bliss, do yourself a favor and watch this video.
So brave. This is just more proof that constant praise no matter what results in magnificently talented humans. Only positive feedback ever for everyone!
Happy Monday, hams! I’m trying to figure out why the internet turns into a pit of boring every single year around the beginning of April and I have to assume it’s just spring fever. So in order to combat this intarwebs slump, and because we all had a such fun last time, I have decided to do Liveblogged Blogger Book Reviews as a semi-regular feature.
I just put in an order to Amazon for the following:
- Homemakers: A Domestic Handbook for the Digital Generation by Brit Morin
- Design Mom: How to Live with Kids: A Room-by-Room Guide by Gabrielle Stanley Blair
- Cupcakes and Cashmere at Home by Emily Schuman
- Oh Joy!: 60 Ways to Create & Give Joy by Joy Cho
I’ve saved the next Young House Love book and the second Ramshackle Glam book to order as their release date approaches. It would obviously be delightful if I could get blogger books early all the time, but eh no big deal. I have no problem buying them and then mailing them on to one of you hams when I’m done.
Design Mom liveblogged book review will happen Wednesday afternoon! Are there any other blogger books I should add to my list?
Young House Love‘s second book Lovable Livable Home: How to Add Beauty, Get Organized, and Make Your House Work for You is evidently going forward despite the closure of their blog. It is up for pre-order on Amazon.
And CecilyK, ‘snackable content’ expert, will be taking her hair to NMX in order to speak about being a successful content marketer. Because when people think of success, they think of Cecily Kellogg for sure.
The Whole Pantry, the app and community created by magical mystery cancer lady Belle Gibson, appears to be unraveling. The app is apparently no longer found on the Apple App Store – and publisher Penguin has pulled the ‘Whole Pantry’ book.
…we have been left with no other option but to stop supplying the book in Australia. We remain hopeful that we will receive the formal assurances we have requested in the coming days…
Since Belle’s instagram has been emptied of photos and the Whole Pantry facebook page seems to be unavailable, media outlets can only continue to wait for some sort of statement from Belle about what exactly is going on.
