We out


It’s that time of year again: The class of 2013 has made it through the other side of the Gates, and our once-distant summer plans are… well, pretty damn close. Whether you returned home or lived out the last few weeks of May at Camp Brown, we’ve been able to shelve our stress, reflect on the year, and look forward to what the next year has in store for us. In the meantime, while we business-casually slog through our summers, BlogDH may not be able to provide you with the same amount time-wasters as per usual to help you procrastinate at your summer job (we need to look good, too!). But don’t go too far—we will post periodically throughout the summer to satisfy all your cravings for life in Brunonia and Lil’ Rhody.

We offer heartfelt congratulations to all of the graduating seniors on our staff, and to our founder, editor-in-chief emeritus and “Chairman of the Board” Matt Klimerman ’13. Matt was instrumental in bringing the site from concept to launch in its early stages back in 2009 and has worked thanklessly over his years at Brown to invigorate BlogDH and elevate it to the level it’s currently at today. BlogDH’s characteristic creative energy is a product of his constant innovation in content, design (e.g. this picture of Dean Bova punching an exit sign), and strategy. While we’re sad to see the last members of our founding generation leave the Hill for more professional pursuits, we’ve got our succession plans in order and are ready to keep bringin’ it day in and day out.

Peace out beezyfaces (sort of)

It’s that time of the year again.  Finals period’s finally gotten into gear, and it’s very likely that you’re reading these words during one of your hourly (well… let’s be real… more like five-minute-ly) breaks from studying. Like you, we at BlogDailyHerald have papers to BS, exams to cram for, and projects to slough off on our group members. And, after writing about drugs, sex and furbies for the entire semester, as well as wasting a ton of your time, it might be time for us to buckle down and git ‘er done.

As the year draws to a close, we’d like to welcome our two new Deputy Managing Editors for next semester, Jenny Bloom ’12 and Talia Kagan ’12, to the BlogDailyHerald editing team.  While this announcement unfortunately means that we will be saying goodbye to the likes of Thea Aguiar ’13 and Alicia Chen ’12, as the former goes abroad and the latter writes a thesis, we could not be more excited to have Jenny and Talia on board.

Now, don’t stray too far!  We’ll still be here with regular study breaks, breaking news, and finals period mischief to help you get through this stretch of mild to severe unpleasantness.  We will also be posting sporadically as things catch our eye.

Lastly, this wouldn’t be a true end of the semester post without a little sentimental piece, so here it goes: We really want to thank all of you for making BlogDailyHerald the huge success that it is. We have grown immensely in the past year, entirely due to the genuine interest and involvement of our readers.  As we look forward to Fall 2011, we can’t stress enough how grateful we are to all of you and how important your input is to the site.  Tweet at us, shoot us an email (blog(at)browndailyherald.com), or write to us on Facebook, and let us know what you like/don’t like about BlogDH and/or what you would like to see more of in the semesters to come.

This blog post is so titled for our earth mother and former blog czar, Ellen Cushing ’10.
