Happy New Year(s) OA Readers!
As we celebrate the start of a new year, we also celebrate OA turning a year old…
I’ve always been keen on thank you’s – especially towards the OA audience, but there honestly isn’t a word (I can think of) to convey the admiration & appreciation I have for you all. This platform, which was created to showcase influencers, has gradually became a safe haven for those looking to find their voice.
OA is something like a personal experiment that panned out successfully. Because of OA, I have had the opportunity to connect with some of my favorite up and coming influencers, whether it be musicians, photographers, or anything in between. I honestly had no expectations for the site, so when I look back on the statistics of 2018 and see that our readers are spread throughout 5/7 continents (North America, Europe, Asia, Australia, and Africa) it’s an overwhelming feeling.
I do not have many goals for the site in 2019, my only hope is that it continues to be a source for upcoming influencers & that we continue to grow. Last year, most of the influencers featured came from a musical background, but this year I would like to embrace any form of influencer. I think social media can quickly be over-saturated and my goal is to bring you quality content (even if it takes a longer time than other sites).
I hope that you all continue this journey with me and that we all have a blessed & prosperous 2019!
Happy New Year!
