It’s been a little over two months since The Library first launched… only two months people! I am beyond proud of the work we have produced thus far – this blog is like our baby!
The feedback we’ve received so far has been great! We really do thank you all for the continued support. One suggestion that I’ve noticed has been figuratively ReTweeted is that some readers want to see us come hard and spark controversy. Now, I know controversy gets all the buzz and yes, we would love to be the next big thing in the Blogosphere. However, what you must understand is that we still have to stay true to our original mission statement – the reason we decided to start this blog in the first place.
The Library is not a blog where all we care about are the amount of site hits and views we receive weekly. While increased popularity is great, we are and will remain to be a blog for the real! Yes, we all experience some form of scandal from time to time and yes, we will write about it – but it will always stay true to our voices.
With all due respect, we are not trying to be gossip columnists like Necole Bitchie and Perez Hilton. They have their own audiences that they cater to with their articles – and quite frankly, they do a damn good job at it! What we are trying to do is create our own viewership that stands out from the crowd.
Although we are new to the blogging world, we want to make The Library represent something greater than gossip and controversy. We want to be respected as entrepreneurial women doing something with substance and meaning. I will admit, we have some entertaining pieces that will brighten your day with a little bit of ratchet, but these are simply aspects of the multifaceted Librarians – it is not the sole definition The Library. We are all educated women that will make a name for ourselves within this New Age Media Society.
So if you are looking for a blog that is full of mean spirited articles, aimed at exposing secrets and talking sh*t, you may want to locate that red “X” on the top left corner of your screen and leave. The Librarians are not, and will never be the new “Mean Girls” of the Internet.
You want us to come hard? We will hit you with the truth of our generation and produce well-written pieces that are the result of elevated thinking. We will never sacrifice the authenticity of our creative voices for views and online visibility. I’m sorry, we’re just not sorry.
