State of the Shake

Hi Friends!

It’s been a while since we’ve posted, for that we apologize. We’ve been extremely busy the past month and a half as we had to return to consulting to pay some of the bills.

MLKSHK saw a tremendous amount of growth and traffic last month. Over 1 million unique visitors hit the site as the sheer size of our database of images means it’s very viral-friendly and usually there are a few images getting a ton of traffic.

We have pushed a few new features we’d like to tell you more about. Some you might have noticed, some you might not have.

First, we have become very attractive to spammers for obvious reasons. Because of that we’ve been spending time trying to knock them down. It’s not easy, especially with such a small team as ours, but I think we are doing a pretty good job of keeping the comments clean.

If you see something please report it. Either through the email address or hit us on Twitter with a link: @mlkshk.

Next is something we have been meaning to do for a while with the bookmarks:

You can now jump back to a previous bookmark and begin reading forwards. We’re still working out the kinks, and thinking about how to better present the experience, but we find it INCREDIBLY useful and we hope you will too.

Note that it won’t work for your old bookmarks, only new ones as they are created from this Saturday forwards.
