The Bilerico Project Shares It’s Last Post

Pioneering LGBT blogger Bil Browning at The Bilerico Project has shared his last post on the group blog:

Projects are meant to be temporary and so was Bilerico Project. After more than a decade, it’s time to wrap up our experiment. The media landscape has changed dramatically over the past decade and so have our lives and the LGBT movement itself. It’s time to turn the page and start something fresh in this new environment.

My first post in 2004 was a quote from Margaret Meade. “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.” I think we’ve done our part to make the world a better place.

This will be my last post on Bilerico Project. The site will be archived at bilericoproject.com so that all 31,000+ posts will still be available for readers. It’s been a long strange journey and I’ve loved every single moment of it, but the time has come to end the project and call it a success.

Bil and other LGBT leading voices inspired me to begin The Randy Report.

A heartfelt thanks to The Bilerico Project for the insight, leadership and passion all these ll years.

eMarketer reports:

A Community Marketing Inc. (CMI) survey conducted in June 2013 found that a substantial proportion of gay males and lesbians in the US had engaged in a variety of media activities over the seven days prior to the survey. The most common activity among the men and women polled was visiting LGBT sites and blogs, at 67% of gays and 58% of lesbians. And when responding to a separate question, more than one-third of LGBT web users said they’d increased their visits to these sites in the past year. Network and cable TV came in as the second most popular media activity engaged in over the previous week, followed by mainstream sites and blogs.
