The past six weeks have been the most memorable six weeks for the team here at Paper.li, and all of the credit goes to you - our community!
Last month you succeeded in nominating Paper.li for the 2011 Mashable Awards. That was not only an honor for us, but something that we never expected. As you know, we didn't end up winning the award, but what we did win was the extraordinary chance for our team to experience first hand the power of our own community, and it was truly amazing.
Every day, and at every social corner we turned, we experienced you in action tweeting and re-tweeting, posting and reposting, all with one aim: voting Paper.li to the top. You have inspired us, and energized us far past an award in our hands. It has been a wonderful experience for the entire team.
We congratulate CrowdTap on winning Up-and-Coming Social Media Service at the 2011 Mashable Awards. It was a challenging competition and an honor to compete against other start-up greats like Banjo, Empire Avenue, Trakt, Chime.in and Summify.
Paper.li community, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts to the top of the Alps for making this competition so much fun and so memorable for us. We are lucky to have a community as engaged and motivating as you, and we look forward to a lot more exciting times together in 2012!
