Lots has been happening for Disrupto (our company), so we wanted to let everyone know what’s been going on and how that affects Steepster.
First off, I want to apologize for the lack of communication recently. A nasty combination of complications and general work “busyness” kept me from letting everyone know what was happening. I hope this hasn’t affected anyone or their use of Steepster.
To give a little background, we started Steepster as our personal passion project and the first official Disrupto LLC product over a year and a half ago. In that time it has grown to a vibrant and diverse community of thousands of tea drinkers (yay!) and we couldn’t be more proud.
At the same time, as Steepster grew and evolved, we worked on other projects under the Disrupto brand. Everyone wore several hats to manage multiple projects, but Mike’s and Jack’s expertise has forced them to focus on other areas while I (Jason) took over the management of Steepster. But now, even though I’ve had a great time interacting with everyone on Steepster, our other business activities demand the majority of my attention.
What does this mean for Steepster? Moving forward, Steepster will remain up and running as usual. We hope everyone will continue drinking and logging teas and sharing their passion with others (and as always, invite your friends). However, I will only be able to manage and interact on the site in a reduced role and I’ll have a limited capacity to respond to questions and requests. We will also be unable to address bugs and errors as quickly as before, but will do so whenever possible.
We’ve brought back Steepster Select for the next couple weeks, but after that we’ll be ending Select until we have more time to run it. In the mean time, we hope you enjoy some great teas, big discounts and stock up on holiday presents.
In other news…we hired Ricky! The lovable rascal worked his way into our hearts and is now a (happy) member of the Disrupto family. If you see him on Steepster, feel free to congratulate him and tell him to get back to work.
So, if you have questions, comments or just need to bring something to an admin’s attention, continue to email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) and I will do my best to get back to you.
Thanks to everyone for continuing to make this a fun and rewarding tea-related journey.
