Today's our birthday! We launched Bilerico Project two years ago today. It seems appropriate to make an announcement about the future of TBP and our affiliated sites today.
We're in the middle of creating a new look for the Bilerico sites and we hope to have everything up and running before the end of the month. We're going to more of a magazine style than simply running large swaths of text down the left column; we want to be able to highlight our best content and current actions while still maximizing what contributors and readers have to say about the day's topics.
Not only will we be launching the new look on TBP and Bilerico-Indiana, Bilerico-Florida, and Bilerico-DC - we'll also be launching Bilerico-NY at the same time! Father Tony will be taking the reigns of the new Bilerico affiliated site so you know how irreverent and lively it'll be. Tony has lined up some incredible talent as part of the Bilerico-NY family and I'm looking forward to seeing the mischief they'll cause.
With our new format, we'll be able to facilitate more contributors without stressing the Editorial Team past their limits plus we'll be featuring breaking citizen journalist news reports from around the country. We'll also have more ways for Projectors to connect with each other and help shape the site. If you'd like to apply to be a contributor to Bilerico Project or one of our state sites, please submit an application.
As Bilerico has grown from our original idea into what it is now, I wonder what the future holds. Any suggestions? As we put the new site together, do you have anything you'd like to see or things we should dump? Any contributors we should seek out? What should we do to bring you back every day and get you to invite your friends too?
