My Journey


I originally posted this on APT 18 and the Feedback Page. I just felt like posting it on YSBU too 🙂

I’ve been on Storybird for over two years now, and it’s home. It’s family. It’s life, to be honest.
On October 27 2012 (my birthday), I was flipping through a children’s magazine, b0red. In the website reviews section, something caught my eye:

storybird.com

I decided to visit it, even though most websites they reviewed were too childish for me. I typed in the URL and pressed Enter, and I was taken to another world.

News, News, News!!


So first of all, N&N (New & Noted, aka Featured) for Longform Books is finally here!! Aaaah!

Also, the italics and bold features for Longforms will be here very soon, probably this week. To italicize something, you will have to do _this_, and to make something bold, *this*.

Exciting, no?

Also, APT 13 is here!!! And more importantly, Cookie is back!

Most of you already knew this, but:

1. The commenting filter (which did not let you write certain words) has now been removed, because all comments are moderated anyway.

2. Also, @christina has left the Storybird team, @Nate is now the new Community Manager, and @SkyBluePurple is well, a part of the SB Team!

Hey guys,

I’m a little short on ideas about what to post at the moment, and I need some fellow admins. If you’re interested, just comment below, with your username, why you want to admin and what you have in mind. You need to be a Storybirder, and have at least 5 books/chapter books/poems. I’ll talk to you on Storybird about administrating the blog soon after you comment 😀

Remember, any inappropriate behaviour, if you are chosen, will result in immediate expulsion. Wow, I sound like a principal.

Thanks!
