Figures as of April 30th 2012. The site officially started May 4 2011 after 5 days of experimenting with Appearances and Categories. We had started a year earlier on Facebook with a few categories as a pages. Then we moved as a blog on Google for two month after which Google unceremoniously closed us down.
At the beginning of April 2011 we launched Civicegypt.org and on the 28 of April 2011 we contracted with site ground for Liberallifestyles.com and reserved a domain names Liberallifestyles.com and wewantexualfreedom.com
By the 4th of May we where fully operational and had both sites as one till November 2011 when we split the sites as individual entities with the same material published simultaneously;( Different audiences with different tastes)

Well as you can see we have every reason to be proud of ourselves. We hope to improve and with your input we are improving and doing our best to please all visitors so that they do return and tell their friends about us. Please book Mark us and tell what you would like us to bring to you in any of our 42 categories or even new categories we will be adding as our Human and financial resources allow it.
We are under funded and rely on friends and lovely donors to keep us going. As you are aware we are commercial free and even when we do post commercial items we are not paid for it.
We are working on improving our marketing as well as our financing. It is not an easy matter when we do not have Venture Capital or accept dictation from investors who would like us to change our format and what we do best. We think of our sites as entertainment education and very informative news for people in North America and around the world. We cannot always find material to please everyone but we work hard on trying to reach out to all out visitors and hope they find something they like in their own language or culture or about their countries.
We are a small team of very dedicated people all items are researched and revised before posting most articles are from upto 10 different sources sometime less sometimes more. It takes time energy and money to do what we are doing and we try to be decent and nice to our employees as well as our volunteers. We do not have time to detail our sources but usually thank the main source or credit them.
A major part of our work is from our own creation and our own editing.
We depend mainly on donations and volunteers
Thanks to the team and the volunteers keep up the good work and thanks to all our donors and supporters and you our dear visitors whom without you we would not be celebrating our first anniversary today.
