Hi there, we are Kyle and Melissa. We're a team of two journalists that launched a brand new blog in 2020, which covers content relevant to Millennial readers. Thus far, we've spread our news to more than a thousand readers across almost 50 different countries from all over the world.
Now that we've established an audience at essentialmillennial.com, we'd like to take it on full-time. However, we need to raise a small amount of money to purchase the business apparatus to create a sustainable platform where we can produce more content and employ other writers, taking the blog on full time. Any contributions would help us fulfil our dreams to pursue a career in journalism on an independent platform that allows us to write without restrictions.
The long-term plan for the Essential Millennial is to create a platform where independent journalists can create content from all over the world. We would like to make writing fun for journalists again, without the traditional constraints of establishment media journalists. We'd love to spread the idea of writing about our passions! Bringing journalists together to write with this enthusiasm, we believe, will reclaim the quality that media coverage has lost ever since the Internet has radically changed the environment for establishment outlets. We aim to truly be at the frontier of a new era for reporting the news and lifestyle stories that truly matter.
We will be using the funding to first fund a business plan for our blog. We have already established the webpages and written plenty of articles, so we have all of our content in place. However, we need some design updates, such as creating proper Search Engine Optimization (SEO). A business plan will also allow us to monetize the blog, earn money and expand the platform even further.
