FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
November 14, 2011
Babble today announced it’s acquisition by the Walt Disney Company all because of one lone Babble Voices blogger, Jennifer Doyle and her Pulitzer prize worthy articles about Disney World in Orlando, FL.
Filled with heart and creativity, the Walt Disney Company knew they wanted to be associated with a company that has “that talented Jennifer Doyle on staff.” (Quote source unknown.)
“Disney is embracing a new genre of storytellers – parents who are able to eloquently, honestly and often, humorously, share true stories from their daily lives that resonate with moms and dads,” said Brooke Chaffin, who oversees the Women and Family division of Disney’s Interactive Media Group.
“See!” said Jennifer Doyle, “When Ms. Chaffin says ‘eloquently,’ it’s obvious that she’s referring to my writing here at Babble. Specifically my post about just how I would surprise my children with a trip to Disney World, then the follow up post that included the heartwarming reveal video that showed me weeping. Yeah.”
There is speculation that behind closed doors, officials with the Walt Disney Company teared up upon seeing Ms. Doyle’s reveal video.
“Speculation, smeculation. That’s a great video!’ said Ms. Doyle, enthusiastically.
Ms. Doyle is quite excited about this acquisition and is anxious for the future. She’s particularly excited that mothers and fathers writing about their lives-parenthood, marriage, and everything in between- is again being validated by Disney’s embrace of Babble. It goes without saying, Ms. Doyle has had her eye on some princess Mickey ears and is hopeful that these will be arriving in the mail shortly now that she’s “got the hook up with Disney.”
“After our trip to Disney World last month, I’ve become a true fan girl. I mean, I’m 100% certain they have magical pixie dust! Being able to say that I now work for Disney is pretty cool,” Ms. Doyle explained.
Official confirmation from Babble or the Walt Disney Company has not yet been received regarding the impetus behind the acquisition.
“But we’re all assuming it’s because of me, right?” asked Ms. Doyle as she nodded convincingly in affirmation.
