Firstly, thank you so much for checking out the site. It truly means a lot and as every click goes toward my final degree mark, and supports my concept, it’s a great help and really appreciated.
As I’ve always been passionate about writing it seemed fitting to start a site that brought together my love of writing and passions such as equality, feminism and current debates. However, as I started my studies the site took a back burner as I began settling in two and a half hours away from my home town.
Once I was settled and my journalistic skills had started to develop I decided to focus on the site once again. My aim was to give every weeks controversy a voice, even when that voice shook.
Slowly my concept and aim become more focused and my social media presence grew as more and more people started to share the page .
Over the summer (of 2017) the site had become a brand with a social media presence and support on Twitter and Facebook. Week upon week more and more people are following the site, joining the debates and visiting not only the site’s page but also the supporting social media pages.
Elephant’s Voice once consisted of unscheduled posts spread months apart with moderately good traffic, though it wasn’t consistent and the focus wasn’t clear – some posts featured news stories, some were controversies and others were personal posts. Between 2016 and 2017 the site’s traffic increased 140%+.
The aim for 2018 is to continue to grow my audience and use the content and supporting social media accounts as part of my professional portfolio.
