An inside look at Ketshop

It seems like every month we’re learning more about what our users want. In July, we started prototyping these important features and hope to release them soon. Here are some of the biggest improvements:

  • Offering you the ability to add items from other stores, like a registry.
  • Allowing you to add your own custom items or experiences.
  • Enabling you to share your family’s shops with friends and family.

These changes are major shifts in our business model, so it will take a little time to get it right. We’re excited to keep you in the loop and announce each of these new features soon!

In the news: motherly

At the end of July, I wrote an article about how I’ve been learning to let go and share control with my kids. It’s now published in, a fantastic publication that supports mothers in all stages of Parenthood. The story is about a 6 minute read, please check it out and share!
