We're back!! And where we've been...

finnymiapopg.jpg

Hello! It's been a while, and I'm so happy to say, we are going to be back and better than ever. We will be changing just a little bit- bringing you more frequently updated content, in a somewhat abbreviated format- more than 140 characters, but usually not more than 140 words. We will still have longer reviews, which we will be structuring into comprehensive buying guides. We will have new voices, as well as some familiar ones, and lots of great giveaways.

Where have we been? In a nutshell, I had a baby, and I thought I'd be able to keep running Popgadget with a newborn and I was so very very very wrong.

Welcome Oprah Magazine readers - have you seen our emails?

Omagazine-cover.jpg

Ever since the October issue of O, The Oprah Magazine came out, we've been getting numerous mysterious emails from readers telling us they found out about Popgadget in the magazine. At first, we replied, "What?" Then we noticed a huge spike in our website traffic that hasn't been seen since that crazy Bar 89 bathroom post.

What a thrill to find out that Popgadget, indeed, is mentioned in the latest issue of O Magazine - page 72. Goes to show - even the smallest mention in O Magazine can have an enormous impact.

So, while we have your attention, dear O Magazine readers, let us direct you to our email sign up page, where you can subscribe to our free emails to get weekly tips and Popgadget highlights, and to win great gadgets from our sponsors. Here are some of the few products we've given away recently.

Prior professional writing experience is not strictly required, but you should be someone who obsessively keeps up with consumer tech news, is familiar with blogging, and is available to write at least 5 posts per week. We pay on the high end of the going rate for blog writing. If interested, send an email to our editor Mia Kim at poplifeco@gmail.com, with the following information:

1. Name and location (city and country), and telephone number,
2. Languages spoken/written,

5. Your areas of knowledge in relation to technology,
6. Some background information (formal resume not necessary),
7. Days and times you can be regularly available (this is very important, we need to be able to reach you);

Whimsy & Spice: Babygadget editor's new food business now selling on Etsy

whimsyandspice.jpg

Jenna, our art director and editor of Babygadget, started a new food business this spring with her pastry chef husband, Mark. Whimsy & Spice, Brooklyn Confectioners, makes "handmade sweets with a dash of spice," which you can buy at the Brooklyn Flea on Sundays, and now also in their Etsy shop. Lavender cookies, chocolate and caramel marshmallows, espresso brownies, and chocolate chilli cashew biscotti are some of the edible creations you can now buy online.

Jenna and Mark keep a blog called "Sweet Fine Day" in which they chronicle their experience in launching this new business, as well as their daily food adventures (along with beautiful photos of dishes Mark whips up in their kitchen) and life in Brooklyn with their two young daughters.

Popgadget poll results on social network fatigue

We asked readers about "social network fatigue," which can mean either that you're getting tired of social networking sites or that you're simply exhausted from having too much of your time sucked up by online social networking (boredom, on the one hand, addiction on the other). And, indeed, it appears that, at least among those who participated in the poll, this phenomenon is real.

social-network-fatigue-results.jpgpercentages-social-network.jpg

43% of participants said they're afflicted and have cut back since last year, which could mean the novelty has worn off for them and the experience is no longer so fascinating, or that they've stopped shopping around and have settled into one or two sites they use regularly (which is probably good news for established networks like facebook). For the 9% who said they're afflicted but haven't cut back (the addicts?), those who are still getting acquainted with the whole concept, and those who just don't care yet, new offerings may still appeal.
