Who Ate All The Pies stopped being updated in September last year, but now Ollie Irish has retaken his role as editor-in-chief, with Anorak handling content production but (at present) with the blog still very clearly branded as Shiny Media’s. Details of the deal aren’t known (and probably won’t be made public) but I’d imagine some sort of revenue sharing and pay-per-post deal is in place to keep both the writers and companies happy.
Shiny’s Nintendo gaming blog WiiWii had a two-month leave of absence but is back with Chris Schilling at the helm.
Finally, DollyMix also took a two month hiatus but is now back with freelance editing and writing from Sian Meades and Robyn Wilder.
It will be interesting to see how these non-fashion niche sites fare as the content cranks up again.
