elephantjournal.com: Fantastic content worth saving.

Via on May 19, 2010

I’m excited to be a new Columnist for elephantjournal.com — your guide to ‘the mindful life’: yoga, organics, sustainability, genuine spirituality, conscious consumerism, fair fashion, the contemplative arts…anything that helps us to live a good life that also happens to be good for others, and our planet.

Unfortunately, the elephant may die. Even though the almighty elephant has achieved…

* 175,000 unique monthly visitors and climbing
* Treehugger recognized elephantjournal.com’s founder, Waylon Lewis as the best of green ambassador of environmental culture 2010.
* Best of many top 10’s: http://www.elephantjournal.com/2009/09/elephant-journal-dot-com-and-the-case-of-the-top-ten-lists/

To survive, ele needs to at least break-even, pay a small staff, and pay writers for their work. If they can’t break-even by June 17, the founder has sworn to unplug the elephant, with thanks and best wishes. That would be bad news to many people.
