— Creative Director — @ BylineBeat
Brooklyn, NY — It has been a great week for us here at byline|beat! We launched our #OccupyWallStreet Landing Page, we have seen record traffic days — back to back to back — our latest installment of ‘Drugs & Sex’ has seen more traffic than any other posting in byline|beat history, and to top it off, my post reporting on Microsofts Q1 Earnings was featured on Tumblr’s #Tech section. Admittedly, & probably most selfishly, the last was what I was most excited about. No disrespect to our great contributor that is Charisma, her ‘Drugs & Sex’ column is going to be a great draw to the site, but when I saw we had been featured in the #Tech section, I had this to say to our Editor-in-chief:
Yes! I was school-girl giddy. But I had that right. After all the work we have put in, philosophies we have debated & the amazing team we have assembled, it was starting to pay off. byline|beat was beginning to get the recognition we deserve. None the less, we are not finished pushing the envelope. We are just getting started & we are doubling down on our hard work. We continue to explore options for our #bbtv franchise, we are working to expand our #Occupy coverage & landing page plus many other interesting and innovative projects yet to come.
We would like to take this time to thank you, our loyal visitors. As we grow and expand, we couldn’t do this without you. We love each and every view we get through out the day. The only thing we ask is, if you enjoy what we’re doing, tell a friend. Email an article to your mother that she’d enjoy (she would love to hear from you!). Tweet out a link to us if you find a story entertaining or think your followers would enjoy it. And most of all, follow us on Twitter, like us on Facebook, or become a follower on Tumblr. We will continue to work towards keeping you informed & entertained. Turn to byline|beat to curate the news for you in this hectic, fast moving world. We do this for you.
To all viewing this: Thank You! -Kevin Gailey
