You might have noticed about new things on our catvertisement section. We are running a donation drive to keep Catmoji running.
Why Donation Drive?
We have reach a point where we no longer able to keep Catmoji running on our own. We have been footing the bills for over a year with our own pocket money generated from doing freelancing work. We have stopped working on Catmoji because of it.
From the get-go, our servers and hosting costs are way more than the money we generated through advertisements on the site. To be honest, money from advertising never reaches USD$10/month yet the cost to keep Catmoji running is around USD$110/month.
Catmoji is a place where catlovers talk about cat stuff, to social and support each other after hard days at work. We still have a bunch of happy users browsing and sharing cat photos and videos on Catmoji everyday. We want to keep Catmoji going as long as we could and shutting down Catmoji would be the last thing to do.
How You Can Help
Help us keep Catmoji running by donating. We need around USD$100 every month to keep it going.
To those who have donated, we sincerely thank you. All donated fund will be allocated to Catmoji’s monthly server hosting. The team will never take this donated fund for personal use.
The best thing to do is to donate a dollar or two to ease the team’s financial state. Another best thing to do is to hang in there (like how you choose to hang out on Catmoji) with us while we figure out how to churn enough funds to pull through this.
You can donate to us via PayPal. Every dollar matters.
Here are the donation we have received thus far (last updated on 23rd of July 2014):
May 2014: USD$ 133.97
June 2014: USD$ 40.00
July 2014: USD$ 50.00
It has been a month since Catmoji’s beta launch and team Catmoji wants to say thank you, thank you, thank you thank you thank you to anyone who is happy and enjoyed cat pictures and videos shared onto our site. We will show you a little bit of insight on Catmoji’s journey and growth after one month being released onto the internet.

The Launch and the Growth
We launched Catmoji as a closed beta on Christmas Eve 2012. Catmoji went viral when it was a week old because it has been picked up by news portal and blogs from all over the world such as BetaBeat, Mashable, Lenta.ru, The Star, Fast Company, UOL and more! As a result, Catmoji’s user base has grown from 800 pre-registered users to 8000+ users who shared and reshared 25,000+ cat pictures and videos on Catmoji’s website.

Not only we went through Christmas 2012, New Year 2013 and a speedy growth in our catmunity in a month, we made some UI modification to the website so it is more user friendly on tablets, and also added a few important features on Catmoji. New features such as users can now edit or delete their post and collection, add description to your collections, and onsite notification.
You can finally choose not to rely on email by keeping an eye on our onsite notification cat bell.
We are going to develop an ios app for Catmoji. Aside from that, Catmoji will announce its merchandise shop that focus on Catmoji’s illustrated happy cats. Keep an eye on our valentine special and maybe a few sparkling new catvatars in February.
Have fun in Catmoji!
Happy new year! It has been more than a week since Catmoji was launched and we hope you have a great time with us. Aside from releasing the New Year 2013 badge, we gave Catmoji a minor interface modification (as a simple fix on the user experience for tablet users) and added an important feature: Edit. Look for the green wrench on your post. You can now change the caption and collection, and also delete your own cat pictures and videos on Catmoji through this mighty edit feature!
We really enjoy making the world a happier place by providing you with cat pictures and videos. 2013 is definitely an interesting year ahead.
Catmoji wishes you a happy new year with more cats and happiness.
Happy new year!
