I have GREAT news to share with you…
I am officially writing for the Huffington Post!!!
- My first post was published on 28/01/2015 and it made the FRONT PAGE of Huffington Post UK on 29/01/2015!
- It was up there with:
Barack Obama https://www.barackobama.com/
Lenny Henry http://lennyhenry.net/
Mehdi Hasan http://www.huffingtonpost.co.uk/mehdi-hasan/ and
Justin Welby http://www.archbishopofcanterbury.org/pages/about-justin-welby.html
(who was actually below me!)
- I was also featured on the FRONT PAGE of the Huffington Post UK Lifestyle and Parenting sections on 30/01/15 for 3 days, where my bio link was published.
- From the moment I was contacted by an Editor at Huff Post to the point of publishing was a whirlwind 24 hours. I was asked to send in an edited shorter version of my post and then give my bio details. I had a lot to think about because up until that point I had remained anonymous to the world. I thought that they would simply be publishing that one post and it would be tucked away in some corner of the Huff Post website.
I was not expecting to be given official contributor status, an account and backstage access for regular submissions, let alone FRONT PAGE placement.
- My first post was circulated via the Huffington Post UK and Huffington Post UK Lifestyle Facebook pages, which is a privilege in itself.
I was told by an editor that of the 80-100 posts that are published on the WHOLE website, only a select few are shared on the main Facebook page.
I am truly grateful that my first post was given such exposure!
