We’re growing up

We’ve been getting feedback that the site feels more snappy over the past few days, and there’s good reason for it too. Last Thursday we more than doubled the number of machines serving up Blip.fm. Without getting too nerdy, this means things will be fast and reliable even during peak hours. And, as more people start using Blip.fm, we will continue to add resources as needed to keep things running smoove.

We’re still running just a fraction of the hardware that the big guys like Yahoo!, Google, or even Digg, have but we’ve proven that our product can scale, thanks to a solid core framework and some clever engineers. That’s a pretty big stepping stone for a website that’s only been around a few months.

So bring your friends, I want to buy more servers.

Hugs.

Filipe

If you want anyone to help translate this site to portuguese,lemme know.

Preeti  on October 5th, 2008

An app for iPhone, social networking sites like Facebook, Orkut will allow more exposure for this.

Carol  on October 7th, 2008

I’m form Brazil too. As the other have said, it’s a hit around here. but we brazilians have the habit of invade most of sites, so if you translate it to portuguese be prepared o be an almost only-brazilian site!

But if you’re still interested on Brazil, an app to Orkut would blow your mind. Almost every person on Brazil has an Orkut account, and I’m sure that the most of them would love Blip.

xoxo,
Carol

Congratulations for the site, cool!

Pamela Kramer  on October 13th, 2008

Where can you add blip.fm to facebook? I can’t figure it out!

Carlos Lorenzo  on October 21st, 2008

This site is fully functional, usable, and addictive. I have been long using other dys radiostations sites like yahoo’s launchcast. This one is free, the sound is great, you can share, you can upload, people can vote and get voted. I hope it lasts for long with everyone’s help. Of course it can be improved but I think it is great stuff. Kudos.

Is there a way to embede my playlist in my website?

Mara  on October 27th, 2008

I love this site! Im new to it, and Im addicted already ^_^

Thiago  on October 28th, 2008

Hey,

i love this website. I really do. I blip almost every day and love the huge database that i can access from this site.

But, today, i am intrigued. I was looking for a Beatles song, which i had already blipped, but i couldn’t found it. For my surprise, the blip was erased without any notification. I tried to search again for the song, but it was missing.

What happened? Do you have any explanation about this?

fuzzygroove  on October 28th, 2008

@hugo: We might take you up on that some day, right now there’s only two developers and just english is enough work for us :)

@Preeti, @Pamela Kramer: We have apps for Facebook, MySpace and the iPhone in the works!

@asael2: Click the link that says, “Embed Blip.fm on your site” in the right hand column. That’ll help you get Blip.fm embeded in your blog.

@Thiago: Unfortunately due to licensing restrictions we had to remove the Beatles from the site… we’re just as disappointed as you, hopefully we can work something out in the future.

Thanks for all the kind words!!

Thiago  on October 29th, 2008

Ian,

that is very hard to know. If the song of Beatles were removed from the site, who will be the next artist? This opens a very bad precedent!

What blip is planning to do? Can you send me an e-mail explanning what happened?

And, Ian, i think would be better if you post something about it. My blips were erased whithout any notice, whithout any explanation. The members of this community should know about something like this, won’t you agree?

[]s,

Betto  on November 4th, 2008

Hi!
Blip.fm is great!
Congrats!

Just a suggestion… What about the possibility to get Blip.fm in other languages,like Spanish?

See Ya!

Betto

Mark  on November 8th, 2008

I love your site.

Two suggestions:

1) Make it easier to delete blips and playlist items.
2) Raise the limit on playlist items

thanks!

Curtis Atkisson  on November 10th, 2008

I’m glad to see that you guys are getting bigger. We use Blip in our whole company, and this will make it a much better experience. We’re currently using Blip to build a sense of team togetherness. As a matter of fact, I just wrote about that not too long ago.

Oh, my god, is Blip the coolest site ever or what!!

It might get me back into my first love - music..

Juano  on November 24th, 2008

Exelente sitio… saludos desde Argentina.

Cael  on December 23rd, 2008

What about Blip’s API? I still haven’t heard about it still.

tània  on December 29th, 2008

thanx 4 creatin such a fresh site, bwoyz! i lub it!!!!!

i’m new here & i wonder few things, lemme put it like this:
despite that your database is quite good i miss almost the 50% of the music i want 2 blip & if i can’t post the songs i wanna find on the database (no matter how, uploading or using the url tool) because are not my own tracks, how are we gonna make this site bigger????
cause if only artist & record labels are allowed 2 do that then there’s a high risk of falling under majors control (that only crappify this kind of gr8 places)

i know that licensing restrictions are a pain on the neck but there’s a good way of getting rid of the restrictions without breaking the laws that works 4 conventional radio stations & it can work 4 you 2!

email me if you are interested on this possible solution & i let you know ;)

peace………

john rosenfelder  on January 5th, 2009

this site is awesome. keep it up.

Santhosh  on April 27th, 2009

I’m so waiting for the iPhone app which can play my playlists.. WITHOUT the WiFi network though

indiangypsygirl  on July 16th, 2009

I got introduced to this site through a friend. Since I’ve become a member, it’s been my constant companion during work hours, *grin* and I feel it to be a truly brilliant product!

I noticed that you mentioned there were only two developers? As I work in a dotcom company as well, I can relate to the amount of effort required for the upkeep and forward progress of such a site.

Hats off to your whole team for a site well done and well maintained! Thanks a mill. :)

Solecist  on July 17th, 2009

We don’t need an iPhone app. Just a minimalist flash free interface for posting. Like a mobile flickr. Mobile.blip.fm where I can post from my iPhone browser

Todd  on July 24th, 2009

don’t listen to Solecist. We want an iphone app badly.

iaian7  on August 3rd, 2009

Agreed - a native iPhone app would be greatly appreciated. Would certainly earn a place on my page of music apps!

Exodus  on August 3rd, 2009

Congratulation! it’s a great news!

I like Blip fm so much!

corryzahn  on August 17th, 2009

I’m with Solecist. I don’t want to listen to blip.fm on my iPhone, I just want to be able to send a post on the go. Something to update my blips. Whether that be an app or a flash free mobile site, I’m all for it.

jimc  on September 15th, 2009

When is that iphone app or mobile interface coming? We want to post to our blip accts!

tigarlily  on September 21st, 2009

I 3rd the mobile interface! Or some kind of mobile app, j2me or symbian would be cool. There’s already an unofficial iphone app. Besides, not all of us have iPhones you know…I want one but I’ll have to stick with my sony instead (:

Jgd3  on October 11th, 2009

I also desperately want a way to post on the go - please give us a mobile interface! I couldn’t care less about listening to blip.fm on my iPhone. I’ve got music on it already that I’d like to post about. :-)

archhead  on January 25th, 2010

iphone app would be great

Thegryffin  on August 4th, 2010

Defintely need an iPhone app. While some people may want only to register blips, still need ability to listen to/QC the result of the blip. (Sometimes the song blipped returns a crappy rendition of the song - not the original)

djmaxpower  on October 30th, 2010

Build an iPhone / iPad app, charge $5 for it and you will make a million or so you can then use for more servers or to pay for some cloud hosting.

themadone  on October 13th, 2011

Is there any platform out there for the mobile,,I just bought a Nokia N95 and was wondering if blip works on symbian based mobiles

Hard to believe games of this magnitude are all coming out within such close proximity to one another.
All available games can be selected by simply walking in front of them.

Sure, the story might sound very similar to Borderlands or Fall
Out, but I guarantee you this game will be awesome if just for the technology and the chance to experience id’s

Communication can also help to establish a level of intimacy that many couples fail to enjoy.

After all, if one’s loyalty and fidelity is dependent on being watched all the
time by one’s partner, how faithful is one to the relationship anyhow.
Both of you need to be able to communicate your expectations about important things in your relationship.

I’m really impressed with your writing skills as well as with the layout on your blog.
Is this a paid theme or did you modify it yourself?
Anyway keep up the excellent quality writing,
it is rare to see a great blog like this one these days.
