What a Week!

29th March, 2010

What a crazy week we've had at Zibbet!  It all started normally and then we suddenly got a flood of traffic to the site on Tuesday night causing our servers to slow right down to a crawl. 

We've had a number of issues with transferring all our data to the new servers and what was meant to take hours ended up taking days.  For that we're truly sorry.  The good news is that the site is back up and is using our NEW servers, which are BIGGER and FASTER and will be able to withstand a lot of traffic and data for a long time to come.

We've done our best to be in constant communication with our sellers, through a mass email to all our sellers, Twitter, Facebook and a growing community of Zibbeters.  We hope you felt informed and not in the dark about what was going on at various stages.

Lastly, I want to thank you for your patience.  It's been so great to to receive all your well wishes, virtual hugs, and coffee!  And even more so, it's been wonderful to see Zibbeters out there in various communities helping to keep others informed and assured.

I'm looking forward to seeing what this week brings.  Over 200 Premium Accounts sold in just 3 days last week!  If we all work together to promote Zibbet to our friends and networks, I believe we have the potential to exceed the momentum we built up last week.

Cheers to a great week ahead and to being well on our way to making Zibbet one of the best handmade venues on the planet!

Kind Regards,

Jonathan Peacock

Premium Accounts Will Be Reimbursed For Downtime

Over the next few days we will gradually be reimbursing all Premium sellers $1.00USD into their PayPal account.  It's not much, but we want you to know that we're sorry for the downtime, and as paying members you deserve to be reimbursed for the days that your shop hasn't been active.

500 Premium Accounts At $8/month!

Now that all the $7/month Premium Accounts have been sold, we're offering another 500 account at $8/month.  Still a fantastic price!  You better be quick because over 200 accounts sold last week, so we're not expecting these to last very long at all!

Limited time $7/month Opportunity...

Many people missed out on the $7/month Premium Accounts due to the downtime and server overload not allowing them access.  Because of this, we've decided to offer the $7 deal for the next 48 hours only!  You'll need to visit the blog for more details and to get your special coupon code.  Remember, the code expires in 48 hours.  Feel free to tell your friends too!  It's their last opportunity to get in at the cheapest level!

Baby Shower Season

Ahhh, the joys of spring.  Warmer weather, flowers, sunshine and new babies.  Yes, new babies.  They seem to pop up out of nowhere just like tulips and daffodils ;)

I have had quite a few friends tell me that they have baby shower after baby shower to attend this spring. I don't mind the business, not at all.  Cranking out diaper cakes like there is no tomorrow.

Which gets me there a baby boom? Or is Springtime the right time for Baby Showers?
Just like Spring is the beginning of Bridal Shows is it the beginning of baby season too?  

I have one spring baby and one fall baby.  As do some of my closest friends.  What seasons are your babies? Let's discuss.
