We ❤️ music and we don't prohibit music on our platform. It is however important that if you want to upload music, you should own the publication rights. So posting your own music is perfectly fine, but for music created by others you will need permission. We reserve the right to remove any unauthorized content without warning.
We think that the sweet spot of a Blip lies between one and three minutes. Our platform allows a bit more, but we don't want them to be too long. After extensive testing we've determined a maximum of 200 seconds (just over three minutes).
No, the idea of our platform is that you follow accounts. The system then creates a syndicate feed for you, based on a (for now quite simple) algorithm. In essence, you will have your own personal radio station.
For now, you can enjoy your Blips via our mobile apps (for iPhone and Android) or online through shared links on social media. In the future, we plan on making Blip accessible via CarPlay and Google Auto, at home through Chromecast and very soon also smart speakers and personal assistents. Also, we're working on a brain implant for your pet, so that you can listen to your favorite Blips via your cat or dog. Or your meerkat, but we'd have to report you to the animal police, because they're illegal as pets.
No. But yes, we do want to make some money. We're in the process of setting up a business model where we can keep the service running, but without annoying you with commercials about how good Dentix tooth paste is for your teeth, how it helps against both dental plaque and caries, and keeps your teeth healthy and strong. Dentix is recommended by dentists. Buy now.
In addition, we're hoping to create a way in which you as content creators can partake in the success of Blip.
Blip is the brain child of Joost Lubach and Toon Toetenel. Joost already had a (Dutch language) short audio site (leukverhaalkort.nl) and Toon already had the idea of doing something with short audio for a while now. They got together and quite quickly came up with this idea.
Blips are in fact a kind of short podcast, and podcasts shorter than 200 seconds can be published through Blip. Longer podcasts are not suitable for Blip unfortunately, but we welcome podcasters to publish shortened versions or promo's for their episodes.
No. Blip feeds are rather dynamic, which doesn't really suit the static nature of RSS. In time, we'd like to offer some kind of feed for integration with other systems, but let's just take it easy for now.
You suffix -ler or -lar to the word, dependent on the vowel in the last syllable. Is this a, ı, o or u, then suffix -lar, e.g. kurbağa (frog) -> kurbağalar (frogs). Is it e, i, ö or ü, then suffix -ler, e.g. göz (eye) -> gözler (eyes).
