Putting the “Co” in Brit + Co: Announcing the Launch of Brit Picks
When I started Brit + Co. a little over a year ago, my mission was to help people find ways to live more creatively and simply every day. Since then, our entire team has been both humbled and inspired by you, our readers. You’ve remade our projects, shared your own ideas, and come together to collaboratively create. We want Brit + Co. to continue to be a place for you to get inspired, create with one another, and connect with new makers you’ll love.
That’s why today, we’re launching Brit Picks, a brand new way to discover the best DIY projects, recipes, and makers across the web. We have begun by hand selecting 25 partners and will be adding more over time. These creative minds are some of our personal favorites on the web and have a unique style and quality to their work. Starting today, each of these makers will have their own channel on Brit + Co. which will consistently feature their latest projects and/or recipes, giving you a one-stop shop for the best, most up-to-date creative inspiration from all around the web.
We have also created a Brit Picks page, so that you can see all of our favorite makers in one place. This page spotlights each maker and shows a few of their most recent projects. Want to be included in the list? We’re taking applications from publishers here.
Additionally, you will soon start seeing a “social score” for each post, which is a new algorithm we have created to showcase content that is starting to trend or that is extremely popular. This score combines pageviews, comments, favorites and shares across many social media channels.
Oh, and if you’re an iPhone user, you’ll be happy to hear we’ve just pushed a new release of our mobile app! You’ll notice a slight redesign, better performance, and way, WAY more speed. This thing is about 10x faster than the last, thanks to some chops on our engineering team. We can’t wait to hear what you think. The app should be live in the App Store over the coming day or two.
