This is what a proud parent must feel like.
After months of fine-tuning and web temper tantrums, the site has left the nest (awww). Follow The Lede has made its debut.
Our first Lede, Lorna Tychostup, is a force to be reckoned with. This photojournalist’s captivating story about her time in Iraq in a post 9/11 world set the project off to a great start. She wanted to see Baghdad for herself, took matters into her own hands and ended up in a country she couldn’t point to on a map. To read more about Lorna’s story, click here.
Now, let me introduce you to her dorky little sister, Follow the Blog (go on now, clap!). This cutie pie is a creation by FTL editors meant to keep A.D.D. readers satisfied. For your entertainment, we will post between Lede features with around the clock news and badass recommendations. On Follow The Blog, editors will be highlighting interesting people doing interesting things from across the globe - much like our website concept, but on a larger scale. So be on the look out, like us on facebook, follow us on twitter and don’t be a stranger! Let us know what you think about this bad boy at email@example.com.
