It’s hard to measure the impact that Ms. Lauryn Hill has had on the music industry over the last two decades. When “The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill” was released in 1998, the multi-award winning artist, including 8 Grammys, said she just wanted to “make honest music.” That honesty has always been a career-defining attribute and something that her fans cherished, particularly as she has gone on to break down racial barriers and gender stereotypes.
Ms. Lauryn Hill’s latest effort to connect with fans in an honest way comes via her new website, mslaurynhill.blog. Hill was the first major musical artist who claimed a .blog domain and dedicated resources to building it out as a hub for information and owned content.
.blog creates millions of fresh, new options for artists seeking to name their blog and is the perfect place to build a home on the web. Domain ownership is crucial for artists and their brands. For Ms. Lauryn Hill, the .blog page reinforces her uniqueness and creativity in the digital space. Our hope is that she finds .blog to be an organic-feeling, safe place where she can continue to breakthrough barriers in the most honest way that we have all come to adore.
