We wanted to wish everyone a happy new year and thank you for sticking with us through thick and thin. A number of people have asked for specific updates so here goes:
What about those !#$@ bugs? We are still tracking down bugs and stomping them out as best we can. Often we are unable to reproduce the reported issues, so when you email us at firstname.lastname@example.org, please be as specific as possible (and send a screen shot if you can). Usually if we can reproduce the bug we can fix it.
What about Jeff? Sadly Jeff is no longer involved in the operations of Blip.fm - we don’t think he is bored though as he has his hands full with other projects
Blip needs new tires and a paint job, are you gonna raise some money to do something or what? In the spirit of candor, we have to emphasize there is zero certainty here, but we are exploring.
What did we learn from the Rockethub experience? (1) Its a lot easier to get 50 users to contribute than 5,000. (2) We are not great at running a crowdfunding campaign. (3) Even a failure can accomplish much (missed our target by a mile but your contributions saved Blip).
What did you do with those gazillion dollars from Rockethub? Spent every last cent on locking in our servers at a much lower price for the next couple years.
Wishing you an amazing 2016 filled with music and joy!
