It's been a particularly long week here at The Bilerico Project, our favorite LGBTQ news and culture blog. (And it's only Wednesday. Boo.)
Most are aware of Bil's recent post about comment threads, netiquette, etc. I'm not going to link back to it here; it's gotten more than enough attention.
So here's the deal. It's time for some cosmic balance, folks. A lot of negativity has been thrown around on here recently, most of which has not been directly aimed at Bilerico, itself.
Still, we need to remind ourselves why questions of comment moderation, readership, comfort levels posting, etc., on this blog gin us up so much. HEY, Bilerico's a great place to be! We care about our queer e-home away from home.
That's why I'm officially declaring this Bilerico Appreciation Day. (To the editors, I apologize if you were already planning a Bilerico Appreciation Day. We'll just have to schedule two.)
Take a minute to leave a comment reflecting on what you like, and only what you like, about Bilerico. It's good for us, it's good for new readers, it's good for karma, global climate change, and in particular it's good for our Dear Editors, who devote so much of their time to this blog, providing us with what I consider to be a vital service to the LGBTQ community.
I love Bilerico because it brings together so many voices -- through contributors, guest posters and commentators alike.
I love that the staffs of organizations with tons of resources and reach in our community are daily in touch with the needs and opinions of people in our community in all corners of the country (and increasingly the globe).
And I love that Bil lets us contributors post different photos of ourselves -- one for the main page, one for our profiles -- because who doesn't love to show more than one side of themselves?
Now it's your turn. Commence the love!
