A place for anyone wanting to write on TIBU2.com.

If you haven't received an invite, just leave your gmail address as a comment, and we'll add you to the list of allowed bloggers.

If you've been invited, once you're logged in you're ready to write.

If you need a gmail invitation, please hit us up at tibu.two@gmail.com and we'll hook you up. There's only 100 people allowed to post here, and close to thirty invites have already been sent to those expressing interest using a gmail account, so hop on board if you're at all inclined.

Feel free to write whatever you want- we'll sort it out later. Old TIBU posts, new stuff, something from your personal blog, something that just flew into your head. We want to see it all.

And just so everyone knows: THIS IS NOT THE SITE ITSELF. This is just a way to post until TIBU2.com is up and running, as perfectly as possible. We wouldn't want to disappoint anyone, so painstaking measures are being taken to make it the best it can be.

In the meantime, please notice the links to the right indicating TIBU2's presence on Facebook, MySpace and Twitter. These "mirror sites" have been established to keep in contact with people and to get information about TIBU2's progress to people who wish to be kept in the informational loop.

One of the big problems at ThisIsBy.Us was a lack of candor with respect to letting users know exactly what was going on with the site, and we'd like to avoid making that same mistake by being as forthright as possible. We're making this up as we go, and although every effort humanly possible will be made to launch this beast by 1-1-2009, please understand if it takes a little while longer. We're doing our best.

Thank you.


  1. I'm right behind you, Larry, which some would argue is not such good news for you, but most of them are certifiable wingnuts. Go, Larry, go!

  2. Just wanted to say thank you for the invitation! What a relief, knowing I have another place to write. TIBU will have another incarnation??? I was seriously bummed when I found out it was dying a horrible, screaming death.

  3. Ricky- your support has meant a lot around here. Please keep posting!

    Bathory- This is TIBU2, for the time being. We're processing and developing a stand-alone site, but we wanted people to have a place to congregate and write in the meantime. It's a shame what happened with ThisIsBy.Us- especially in light of the incredible goodwill borne by its constituency. The new site was scheduled to launch on January first, and while that may be slightly delayed, we wanted to get something up and started gleaning people from TIBU before everyone left and we lost track. We're glad to have you here, and we look forward to seeing your work!
    Thanks for coming over.
