In 2008, I decided it was time to embrace the “new” technology and create a web presence as a way of expanding knowledge beyond the 50,000 subscribers of my printed newsletter, The Bob Livingston Letter™.
We went live with the site on June 23, 2008. In the beginning, Personal Liberty Digest™ was simply a place to reprint content from the monthly letter. Within a couple of months, some of my friends joined me in this endeavor by becoming contributors and spreading word of the site to their circle of friends. Some of them already had something of a Web presence, so that helped us to grow.
We began some marketing efforts designed to introduce more people to Personal Liberty. This helped to expand our subscriber base and other liberty lovers began to take notice. Through advertising and word of mouth, our presence spread.
Since then you, dear readers, have given me the greatest present I could ask for: your loyalty and your daily participation. We have more than 600,000 subscribers now, and we are constantly growing. I’d like to think you all come here for a daily dose of a skeptical look at conventional wisdom and the truth you can’t find anywhere else.
I know that most of you come here for that; but there are others who are here for different, more sinister reasons. That doesn’t matter.
Whether you visit each day because you care about liberty and the Constitution or because you simply want to bash us and the liberty movement, you have made us the No. 1 libertarian site on the Web.
Thank you for that.
So Merry Christmas to you: every one of you. My gift to you is my promise to you. We will continue to do our best to present the unvarnished truth to you every day, whether you like that truth or not. There are no sacred cows when it comes to personal liberty… or Personal Liberty. We will point out the criminals in government — and criminal government — whenever and wherever we find them. We will expose the progressives and totalitarians when we see them. We will fight the police state. We will give you our take on the events of the day regardless of whose feelings get hurt. We are not controlled by anybody, and we are not funded by anyone or anything beyond our hard work.
That is Personal Liberty Media Group’s promise to you this Christmas.
Again, from the entire staff at Personal Liberty Digest™ and Personal Liberty Media Group, a Very… Merry… Christmas!
