On July 19th of last year at about 11:30PM, an idea was born. That idea was to build a place, this website, which would present excellent writing across a wide range of topics. A place that would not feature sensationalism, but that would always strive to be sensational. A place that would endeavor to provide help to people who need it through a practical philanthropic effort.
Within a week of that idea, our team was built, and we have been working hard ever since to turn that idea into something real. It has been an honor and a privilege to work with this vibrant and dedicated team. Six months later, this is the fruit of their labor. It’s February 1, 2010 and our doors are finally open.
Life As A Human has begun!
To say that the writing community has expressed a great deal of interest in Life As A Human would be an understatement. Right from day one we have had tremendous feedback, all of which has been positive and encouraging.
We want to thank all of the contributors who have embraced our vision. Their support and the trust they have placed in Life As A Human has been extraordinary. Without them, these pages would be, well, pretty empty.
A huge thank you also goes out to all of our social media friends. Thank you so much for your tweets, stumbles and Facebook posts. Please don’t stop.
To our readers, today we have launched the site with seven articles. In the days, weeks and months to come, you will be introduced to a group of excellent authors from around the world. We will also present you with talented photographers, movie-makers, artists and musicians. Through their articles, posts and comments, you will get to know them, and they will get to know you.
Every day, new articles will appear in our Recent Articles section. As they do, the contributors’ names in the Authors link in the navigation bar will become click-able and you will be able to see their profiles and submissions. As well, you will see the Categories section grow very quickly over the next few weeks.
And so, with that said, welcome to Life As A Human! We hope you visit often and provide us with feedback and new ideas born of that wonderful quality called human creativity.
The Life As A Human Team
