Three years ago today, on February 16, 2007, modelmotion made the first post ever on LG15Today.
Welcome to LG15 TODAY
This is a bit of an experiment.
Try writing a short story…..lets say a summary of what you have been following today on LG15.
Then E-mail it to: firstname.lastname@example.org
The story should appear at http://lg15today.blogspot.com/
This might not be the best way to go about LG 15 TODAY………but its just a trial to see how well it would work.
Happy birthday Lg15Today!!! (And kudos to modelmotion for making it such a successful site for the lg15 community)

Three years ago today, on February 16, 2007, the 55 second lonelygirl15 video "Watch This!" was posted.
* With 1,111,006 views, Watch This! is currently the 25th most watched lonelygirl15 video of all time. The title, of course, was an attempt (trick?) to encourage views--and it was pretty successful, getting over 550,000 views in its first three days of release.
* While the video promises more than it delivers, at this time in the show's history experimentation with "action videos" (posted on a Friday) was still quite new, and a long distance shot of Jonas trying to punch a watcher, with no explanation afterward, didn't have quite the bang hoped for.
* The video includes a center frame shot with an "LG15" logo, the first video where this was tested (which they did for about two months).

Two Years Ago Today
Two years ago, on February 16, 2008, Sarah posted Things Fall Apart.
* Despite having only 58,183 views to date, this rare Saturday video features F-bombs galore (most ever for a Lonelygirl15 video)--and even new girl Gina speaks up--as TAAG experiences huge infighting after Emma's recent departure.
* Priceless comment board comment: "Am I the only one thinking this resembled an episode of Jerry Springer?"
* InsideLG15 announced a contest with the release of this video, where a lucky commenter would win the bench Gina constructed in Playing With Wood. Greenlacebeauty and Laurensav were the eventual winners.

One Year Ago Today
One year ago today, on February 16, 2009, Polish lonelygirl15 spinoff n1ckola posted its eleventh video, Siakta (which means "Grid"). At this point in time, the lonelygirl15 community was still suffering a fair amount of drama from the TSIY-Misfits brouhaha, and "The Last" did not debut until a few weeks later.
