Not going to lie, pretty excited today is well, TODAY.
Sure it’s 1:24 AM BUT I’ve been working closely with TSC App Team on the relaunch of THE SKINNY CONFIDENTIAL APP. There’s so much newness & fresh features that I think you guys are going to LOVE. At least I hope.
About a year & half ago I launched the first baby version of TSC App.
As the brand grows, it’s important to keep the app up to date so for the past six months we’ve been brainstorming how to bring you guys the BEST, seamless experience EVER, on an App.
Like I can’t do any of that ugly colored, crashing bullshit. It has to function in the most amazing way possible for you guys or I’ll give up & die.
SO although I may or may not have micro-managed the App Team to death ( but literally to death— hopefully they return my e-mails tomorrow? To be entirely honest after this week I’M SICK OF MY OWN E-MAILS. Is that possible? ), I did it because I just want you guys to LOVE the app.
On that note, every feature on the NEW TSC APP is an experience. How so? Well…
THE APP REVAMP INCLUDES:
+ FRESH LAYOUT: that’s right: FRESH. Think clean, concise, & simple.
+ EXCLUSIVE CONTENT: for $2.99 a month you will be able to access EXTRA TSC content. These will be posts by me & Michael geared towards the reader’s specific requests. Fresh photos, fresh content. Basically EXCLUSIVE CONTENT that you won’t find on any of my other platforms.
+ PODCAST SECTION: yes please. You can listen to TSC HIM & HER PODCAST right on THE APP. Super easy.
+ DISCUSSION FORUM: guyssssss, I am SOOOOO excited for this because it’s an open discussion forum where we can discuss whatever it is we want to discuss. This is amazing because I kind of feel like I’m already friends with some of you via Snapchat messages so a forum to TALK openly? UGH, I just love this.
+ YOUTUBE: forget logging on to YouTube because UM, you can watch the videos right on the app.

Wait, but let’s talk about the EXCLUSIVE section.
Here’s the deal— and I’m going to be real honest here: if you haven’t noticed I removed ALL, yes ALL advertisements from The Skinny Confidential.
Now there’s just not a lot of blogs on the web have NO advertisements. It’s rare & that’s entirely ok with me.
You know if everyone is doing something one way, I tend to go the other way. It’s in my nature honestly. Doesn’t always work in my favor— HA!
Ok but the reason I have no ads is very, VERY simple actually: this website is about an experience.
It doesn’t suit the site to have advertisements everywhere. Too many ads are gross.
Basically when you sign on to The Skinny Confidential I want YOU to feel inspired, energized, & really ready to fucking conquer whatever the fuck it is you need to conquer, you know?
Advertisements are just not what it’s about.
It takes away from the whimsical, pretty community.
I’m not saying I’ll never advertise. I’m just saying right now I have not found an organic fit ( not even close actually )…& at the end of the day I’m really not willing to compromise…no matter the price.
On that note, in place of advertisements I’ve created a section on TSC App called “EXCLUSIVE.” THAT’S RIGHT, where YOU, the viewer, can CHOOSE what you WANT to do.
For $2.99 a month you will get ‘The Skinny Exclusive.’ This will include specific questions you guys ask me. Think of it as geared posts towards EXACTLY what you want.
Of course, the content on the blog will remain exactly the same.
The app was FREE for the first two years & it still is free. But if you want more than what’s available, Michael & I will be posting in the EXCLUSIVE section. For the first two years, it was important that you guys had an idea of the quality of content I plan on providing. This app is an extension of The Skinny Confidential brand that I’m personally writing for you.
AGAIN, the app along with the site will have NO ads ANYWHERE, AT ALL. BECAUSE EW. I wanted a clean, real experience for you guys.
Keeping up with an app requires time, money, & a lot of work so the option for EXCLUSIVE is just available if you want it. The $2.99 is because it will be run by me & I’ll be writing more posts than normal. The EXCLUSIVE will just be extra TSC written for those who want to connect even deeper & hang out in the discussion community.
Basically the EXCLUSIVE content will just be icing on the cake, k?
