bilerico in the news

the indy star has an article today about friend-of-the-site bil browning, who, with the help of others, has revamped the old bilerico blog into a national blog that's grown so successful that he can now live off its income.

to be honest, i sometimes miss the old bilerico. as a hoosier, i felt i could relate to it more than i can the current version, and there are only a handful of hoosier-oriented blogs worth reading, as opposed to a bazillion national political blogs out there. (plus, let's be frank, they used to link me on the blogroll but no longer do; that's their prerogative.) but supporting yourself through your blog is many a blogger's dream, and extremely difficult to achieve—and i do like some of the new features and contributors (though not all). so clearly bil's been doing something right.

congrats to bil and the whole bilero team. the article mentions bil & jerame plan on launching new blogs in the future, so keep an eye out for that, too.

Thanks for the kind words, Stallio! You'll be happy to know that one of our projects we're about halfway through with is the launch of so we can get back to our roots with Indiana-based coverage too. Bilerico:Indiana won't just be queer news though - it'll be progressive politics in Indiana.
