Write on Elephant, Change our World.

Our “Ecosystem” makes it easy to Get your message out to thousands—& get paid.

Unlike Instagram or Facebook, Elephant is independent, and mission-driven—and despite having (slightly) fewer resources, we believe in paying our writers to offer quality to our readers.

Elephant was one of the first major sites to pay our best, consistent writers. But it was always hard to measure “best.” Now, we are introducing weekly payments to the top 10 articles on Elephant based on their Ecosystem Score—90% determined by our readers’ actions: reads, hearts, comments, shares, and 10% determined by our Editor’s Picks (so that mission balances popularity).

Note: When folks both get perfect 10 scores, we use the number of reads as the tiebreaker.
