The Luv Biz
Ladies (and the occasional gent), I’d like to introduce you to a new site, run by myself and four of my amazing journalism colleagues, called the LuvBiz. Making sense of New York City’s Love Industry from Dating to Divorce. Click the link or find us at http://www.theluvbiz.com. Here’s what we’re all about over at the Biz:
Our Mission: To give readers the news, the economics, the stories, and the lowdown on the love industry in New York City.
Who we are: Five journalists with a few guest writers popping up here and there.
The Goal: To eventually have a readership that contributes to the conversation. Stories. Anecdotes. Advice. We want to hear it all.
What you’ll find here: Stories/contributions dissecting the different love industries. How much did that wedding dress cost you? Or, how little did it cost? How much revenue does speed dating bring to venue it’s at? How does eharmony.com match you up? Why have words like bridezilla, serial monogamist, serial dater, etc. invaded popular lexicon? And why is there a need to “brangelina” every coupling?
What you’ll be hard-pressed to find: Put it this way, we’re not really in a position to help you plan your wedding or your dream date. You probably wouldn’t want us to. Plus, there are a million sites for that. We’re here to talk about why there are a million sites.
So if you’re in the New York Metro area, or are just generally interested in city-life/love (and really, who isn’t?), check out our site. Occasionally, the Bride and the Journalist might have complementary content, and we’ll point it out, but we will continue to make fun of the bridal industry while feeding into it over here. The LuvBiz will make fun of everything else. Just kidding. There will also be news, photos, fun stats and witty analysis.
