Editorially users: export your data now, service ends May 30

Filing cabinet

This past February the team at collaborative writing service Editorially announced they would be closing their doors and shutting down their app on May 30, 2014. With that date just around the corner, we thought we should give users a reminder to export their information now before the service ends. In their initial announcement, the Editorially staff said their reason for closing down was their inability to attract enough users to be sustainable in the long run.

Today brings some sad news: Editorially is closing its doors. The application will remain available until May 30, at which point the site will go offline. We encourage all users to export their data. We're proud of the team and tool that we built together and incredibly thankful that so many of you were willing to give it a try. And we continue to believe that evolving the way we collaborate as writers and editors is important work. But Editorially has failed to attract enough users to be sustainable, and we cannot honestly say we have reason to expect that to change. We wish that were not the case - we've spent much of the past two years working on the hypothesis that the reverse was true - but today we must be honest with ourselves, and with you: this isn't going to work. We know many of you have spent time and energy making Editorially a tool you use every day, even going so far as to evangelize it to your friends and colleagues. For that: thank you. We're sincerely sorry to have let you down.

It's sad to see such a useful app die. Make sure your information isn't taken along to the grave with Editorially.
