Sometime over the next couple of days we’re going to reach what we reckon will be a fairly impressive milestone: AIMN articles will welcome their 10 millionth reader.
Ten million, in just three years.
We are privileged that so many people come to The AIMN. But why shouldn’t they? Where else can they read who we proudly believe is the best collection of bloggers/independent journalists in the land?
Some people might say: “Ten million. So what. The large media sites get that in a month”. And so they do, but they are not getting a lot of readers who have now turned to independent or social media. Their ten million loss is our ten million gain.
Someone recently confided that her husband works as a journalist in the mainstream media, and whilst very critical of the Coalition Government is ‘ordered’ to write the complete opposite. Is it no wonder that readers are now turning to alternative sources of information? People no longer want to be told how to think or be barraged with sensationalism masquerading as truth.
But here at The AIMN we are not told what to write. Our writers are free to give their own opinions without the influence of owners, sponsors, or any funding bodies.
We are very proud of all our writers. They bring a vast variety of expertise from a variety of fields, and many of them are considered experts in those fields. They are the reason why we are on the cusp of ticking over the milestone of ten million readers.
The march to ten million took a bit of a hiccup with the demise of Tony Abbott (which meant it was good that people were coming to The AIMN to get genuine opinions about him) but gained momentum again as people realised that his replacement, Malcolm Turnbull, is, to put it simply, just as incompetent and directionless as a prime minister. And he also leads a government incapable of governing.
With 2016 being an election year we are gearing for a super year. And you know where you can find the best independent articles? Here. Still.
The people who take the time to read The AIMN or to leave comments are special to us. It is from you who we draw our inspiration and dedication. Thank you for being a special member of the ‘ten million club’.
