A look back at 2016…

Happy new year! I hope you’ve all had a peaceful holiday season, however you have chosen to celebrate.

As one year ends and another begins I wanted to take the opportunity to look back over the past year and share with you some 2016 Sheroes of History stats & achievements!

  • The blog featured over 50 new inspiring sheroes (meaning there are now over 160 in total – what a great resource!)
  • We had contributions from 32 wonderful, brilliant writers! (Thank you, I love you!)
  • The blog was viewed nearly 40,000 times by 22, 891 visitors who came from 150 different countries around the world!
  • The Sheroes of History Facebook page reached 1, 298 likes and we now have over 2, 600 Twitter followers!
  • The most popular post on the blog was John Hudson’s contribution about Ameila Bassano Lanier, with 1, 678 views!
  • There were a host of Sheroes events, including Sheroes storytelling sessions for Black History Month and a special Birmingham Sheroes event as part of Birmingham Heritage Week.
  • In October I was nominated for a West Midlands Woman of the Year Award for Outstanding Contribution to Education!
  • Finally – not at all Sheroes of History related, but perhaps my biggest achievement was growing and giving birth to a tiny shero!

Thank you all so much for your continued support, whether you have liked a post on Facebook, retweeted, read a post or written one – I am so hugely grateful to everyone who helps this endeavor continue.

You can be sure that 2017 will bring you many more stories of incredible sheroes of history. I continue to be inspired by the courage and passion of these women and consider it a privilege to be able to shine a spotlight on their amazing lives.
