This blog is sorta personal and fine if anyone wants to read, it’s boring, but elephant editors please don’t share it up much, it’s more of an internal simple thought I wanted to put down “on paper.” ~ ed.

I feel like we (not me) at elephant are about to do our version of that scene in The Natural where they fast forward through headlines of success and heady growth. After years of breathing in, struggling alone, transitioning online, nearly losing home, worst relationship of my life, refusing investment and just working, working, working, working, working…hardly any fun…we’ve hired four folks in last few months and hit 1.2 million readers a month…we’re about to breathe out.
