It is just a little under two years since LG15 Today launched and a few minutes ago the blogspot passed the 500,000 visit landmark with over 797,000 page views.
A long long time ago the 436 had taken away the official chat on the lonelygirl15 web site so a few fans got together to create the LG15 Addicts Userplane chat site. While chilling there the concept of the collaborative valentines card was hatched. It was a huge hit and it became quite apparent that given the opportunity this community had a huge capacity to collaborate creatively using the tools provided by the Internet. It was out of that spirit and the open free philosophy of lonelygirl15 comments that LG15 Today was born as a collaborative blog with the goal of keeping the community up to day with what was going on in the Breeniverse. Whether it be
lonelygirl15 news, community videos, a snow ball fight on comments, lonelypirates15, the latest ARG puzzle or any of the other antics that were taking place in the community we wanted to find a way of keeping the community up to date on what was going on.
We want to thank the many people who have contributed to the success of LG15 Today. Some helped out with the design, some have made many many posts, or helped market and promote the blogspot. Others have done research for the blogspot, passed along tips, created cartoons or just written very funny, insightful or historical stories. In particular, we want to thank the fans over at LGPedia who provide the community with the most amazing resource. Of course we are indebted to all the video series creators who work so hard to entertain us. Some in the community have gone on to tell their own stories based on their own mythology while others stick with the traditional LG15 mythology but whatever your flavor you are part of this vibrant community and we thank you all. Of course a blog would be nothing if it was not for its readers so we thank each and everyone of you for your loyal support and many insightful comments. Finally we want to thank Google for providing us with a very robust and dynamic platform on which to build the blogspot.
It has been great to watch the development of this community which has always had so much creative energy. Sites like Anchor Cove continue to stamp their identity on the web series universe. The community now has BreeFM, its own community radio station which we have been able to work closely with. We have a plethora of IRC chat rooms and other blogs that put their own spin on things of interest to the community. We have even seen the development of community portals such as the Coalition web site and other more specialized web sites for individual community web series. It is never easy keeping up with all the news but some how by working together we are able to do it. That is the magic of LG15 Today!
