The Edinburgh Reporter has reached a massive milestone and have hit 100,000 unique visitors to the site for August more than doubling the site traffic at the beginning of 2013.
The site which launched in 2010 is run by Phyllis Stephen and a small group of volunteers and covers news, sport & politics around Edinburgh.
Local MSP Gordon MacDonald has put a motion forward to the Scottish Parliament:
That the Parliament congratulates the editor, journalists and staff of The Edinburgh Reporter on achieving 100,000 unique users during August, two and a half times the number using the site in January 2013; notes that The Edinburgh Reporter was launched in 2010 as a hyperlocal news website for Edinburgh aimed at people living in, working in or visiting Scotland’s capital city, and wishes everyone involved with the publication continued success in its future endeavours to report on Edinburgh and its people.
The team here at Talk About Local would like to add out congratulations to Phyllis and the team for getting to 100,000 monthly visitors.
Away from Talk About Local I take photos, fly my quadcopter and walk my two Beagles.
If I'm not doing any of the above then you'll find me volunteering at my local RNLI station as a press officer.
