Each year, the Mudbug Media team takes time to give back to our community. As we enter 2013, we take a look back at the wonderful individuals and organizations with whom we had the opportunity to partner during 2012.
Here at Mudbug Media, the office is filled with creative minds of every sort. Towards the end of each year, the Design and Front End Development Department gets to let a few of these creative minds loose to design and create our yearly holiday card.
This year, our card began as a collaborative effort among the entire design team and one member from each department at Mudbug. This mega Mudbug team of designers and department representatives brainstormed together to come up with a holiday card idea. Scott, our president, suggested along with other department representatives that the card be something practical, something the recipient would find useful. With this goal in mind, we set out to develop a holiday card that was not only beautiful and full of holiday cheer, but also useful enough to not get thrown away at the end of the season with the rest of the holiday decorations and cards. We wanted recipients to remember Mudbug Media and keep us on their desk all year round.
What is Pinterest and How to Use it
Pinterest has become the third largest , as well as one of the fastest growing, social media websites. After launching in March 2010, Pinterest was slow to gain traction. But, after summer 2011, traffic grew rapidly from approximately 5 million visitors a week at the beginning of October 2011 to over 21 .5 million weekly visitors by the end of January 2012. Not only has total traffic on Pinterest increased, but it has also become a excellent referral source, as Inc.com saw last year when Pinterest drove as much or more traffic to their site than Facebook.
Our offices are headquartered in New Orleans. We love the city’s culture, music, and food, but it also means we have to be prepared for an occasional hurricane and the potential electricity or network service outage that can accompany a storm. We’ve always kept our customers’ production web servers out of the city; currently we have servers with Rackspace, Linode, Amazon, Engine Yard, and Peer1. However, we still run an in-office file server and a staging web/application server.
