Happy New Year

Happy New Year!

Amidst celebrating we're looking back on a year of exciting stuff that's happened on Movellas



It's officially New Years Eve and we're all getting ready for our own parties with fireworks, fizzy drinks, and plenty of celebrating with friends and family. We know this is a busy time of year for everyone and while our movellians celebrate the coming of the New Year, we wanted to take a moment to mention and recognize all the awesome things that have happened in our community in 2017 too :)


Among other fun things, there were over 120 blog posts this last year that included feature weeks covering everything from Sherlock Holmes to Horror & Fantasy genres. Aside from the blog, there were also just under 20 writing competitions! Like every year, we have some traditions on Movellas that we repeated, like our Movellys awards (our version of the Oscars) and the oh so epic Battle of the Fandoms!


We also picked a new team of ambassadors that you all may recognize from their activity on Movellas that included writing stories for competitions, helping answer user questions, catch spammers, and so much more. Also made were a number of improvements to the website itself that included expanding search functionality on blogs and competition pages, the introduction of user blog writing, upgrades like being able to re-order chapters for all the highly organized writers out there :), being able to edit mumbles and comments, and even functionality so you all can connect movellas in a series.


Lastly, Movellas went through some change this year and while it was long-awaited, it was also very exciting as we went from a reading & writing site to the launch of Audio Stories you can listen to as well. For any who haven't had the chance to see more of the Audio project, check out our Audio page - we will be releasing new Audio Stories every month with another new release to follow in only a couple weeks! Our writers have worked really hard and so we're proud to be moving forward into a New Year full of possiblities and more Audio Stories.


This may go without saying, but we're working on a bunch of other exciting things in the New Year to come that you can all expect to see real soon, like bringing back our papella feature and the introduction of private messaging! We're wishing you all a Happy New Year, may 2018 bring you all that you wish for and be full of excitement and opportunity.


All the Best,

The Movellas Team
