Our News – 2017

Firstly, thank you so much to everyone who has visited, got in touch, commented or contributed to in 2017. 

So, how did we do this year?

By the 31st December we’re expected to have over 700,000 unique visitors i.e. individual people from 200+ countries and be just short of a million page views. Fantastic. We hope you found us useful in your studies or sparking your interest in British politics and history.

This is our third full year so we updated our homepage with a new more responsive design, easier links to news, the latest features and social media. We hope you like it.

We were delighted responses to our writing campaigns required sifting through hundreds of diverse applications from the UK and overseas. My favourite part of working on BRIT POLITICS this year has been supporting people who have never written or had articles published before. We love hearing from you. If you ever want to write for us get in touch.

I'll admit for me working on in 2017 was not all positive. As I wrote in earlier blogs, the repeated terrorist attacks left me in despair about the state of British politics and on quite a few occasions I succumbed to Brexit fatigue. But my motivation always returns, usually cajoled by an interesting part of British history, as I feel passionately about helping people around the world learn about our amazing country and her history. 

What are our 2018 plans?

We’ll be working hard to try and grow the site with more new free content. We also want to delve further into social media platforms such as Pinterest and Instagram at the same time as making our content easier to share.  

We also have a few exciting secret projects which will expand the reach of further, keep you better informed and get more of you involved. Watch out for these.

My final thought

Politics shapes society and the people who are part of it. 

For many in this country and elsewhere, 2017 has been a success story and something to raise a glass to over the festive period. For others it has been uncertain, lonely, and deeply tragic. So whilst I wish all our visitors Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year my thoughts are also with those having a tough time. 

See you in 2018.
