Holding out for TheGoodBlogs

Times Square was a source of inspiration for me, two and a half months ago. I watched thousands of tourists and locals stare at the giant billboards, mesmerized by the color, size and vibrancy of the displays. If only we could command the same attention for bloggers everywhere who had pretty neat content but no means to make themselves heard, left drowning in the blogosphere. Aren't the readers of our blogs, tourists and locals too? What bloggers needed was a champion, someone who could shout their cause, better still, create a community that was self-empowered. The idea within Tealeaf's head and mine soon found its way to our hearts. It became our passion. TheGoodBlogs was born.

I finally found time to take that the moment, saved in digital form, and add my vision which is the picture you see here. I know I will use this as my inspiration. When the road is not clear, our intent will nevertheless be unwavering. To become the Times Square for blogs so all can behold and marvel at you the blogger and your creativity.

I can hear my rendition of Bonnie Tyler's - "Holding out for a Hero"

Where have all the good bloggers gone
And where are all the blogs?
Where's the street-wise Hercules
To fight the rising odds?
Isn't there a white knight upon a fiery steed?
Late at night I toss and turn and dream
of what I need.
I need TheGoodBlogs

I guess you had to be there, in the 80's I mean.

Well, I won't be quitting my day job then!
