As you may or may not be aware by now, Twitter recently announced that they are shutting down Vine. As we use this service for our weekly video posts, it’s clear we are going to need to make some changes! Going forward, we have put some plans into place. These will ensure that we can continue providing the videos alongside our recipes.
First of all, we are currently in the process of moving all of our Vines to a cloud server so that we have back-up copies. During this process we are also re-uploading them to Instagram. That is where they will live, at least for a little while, as we make the transition. When Vine does close its doors, we will be shifting every blog post over to an Instagram embed rather than a Vine embed.
We’re pretty upset to lose our Vine followers and statistics as these have been the backbone of our audience so far. With some of our videos reaching over 100,000 loops, it’s a big blow for us. But we’ve decided to take it on the chin and use this as momentum to get our standard higher than it already is.
To that end, we have plans to switch from mobile video to using a DSLR. Videos are going to be fully edited and posted on YouTube once Vine expires and we reach the end of our video backlog. We want to provide a smoother, more professional video process so that you can enjoy a polished product every week.
We’ll give you a heads up when we are ready to open up on YouTube, but for now, please go ahead and follow us on Instagram for the latest updates. It might be the end of Vine but it’s certainly not going to be the end of us!
