EdisonNation activity rather quiet these days.

Things seem rather quiet around EN these days. How does EN stay viable with such low activity?

Low activity in the forums doesn't necessarily equate to low activity elsewhere.  But you're right... everyone must be on siesta...zzzzzzzz

In my case work and personal pressures leave me with little time and I'm reserving that for working on my ideas and active submissions. Kim's right - there's a lot going on with EN right now but you wouldn't know it from community member (including me) forum participation.

"As the duck appears to be gliding slowly and carefree across the pond... His feet are paddling like hell just below the surface."

I think you'll see an uptick in activity with the L &G search as it progresses.

Yeah not seeing much activity or success stories on here, so I hardly come here any more.

I've been in product development my entire 23 year career, and according to my experience, this is completely normal.  Product development ebbs and flow, it's not steady state.  It's not at all like cranking out product from a factory, where it runs continuously.  There are tons of factors involved like sponsor product development calendars, key decision maker out of office schedules, country holidays, even finite bandwidths.  I'm not really concerned about the perceived "dry period", I just keep plugging away.

Good, analogy Thom.  Although per my personal MO, I'd say "padding like crazy".... :) none the less point well stated.

 As always, I am very appreciative to see what longer term members have to say in the forum. But as a newer member, I feel there is plenty to be excited about. There have been (2) sponsored search's over the six months that I have been involved and If I understand correctly there is more sponsored searches on the way. And..... if thats not enough,  there is ongoing open searchs available all day every day! .   Personally I am pretty geeked to be associated with EN and the many like minded people enrolled. I truly look fwd to all that EN has to offer in the days and months ahead !

Thank you, Rodney. Just a quick note to our awesome EN community, please remember that not everything is posted on the forums. Please check our Facebook and blog posts. We have several licensing deals that have been announced, along with new brands started under Edison Nation, creating more opportunities for our community, and boy have we been traveling to meet as many of you as we can! 5 events this October alone. AND…THE SHOW, Everyday Edisons” IS COMING BACK!!! We are working on creating and filming an entire tv series that will be launching with a significant # of innovators with their products being featured on it.

In good fun, if that is EN being quiet...hate to hear us when we are being loud!! :)

On that note, if everyone could check that your email is up-to-date, we have our newsletter that we send out monthly to keep you informed of the happenings and coming-up's! We have a great community and we intend to grow the great culture, positive energy and opportunities that we are able to provide, thank you!
