It’s our birthday! We launched The Rooftop three years ago this week. To celebrate, we thought we’d take a look back at all that we’ve achieved so far.
Since September 2018, we have published 828 positive stories on our site, providing a daily dose of good news worth shouting about. We have amassed over 130,000 views on our website alone in that time, but across all of our channels, we have had a huge 40 million views.
Our positive news stories were especially needed over the last eighteen months during the pandemic, as we saw our Facebook likes rocket up by 212% during April 2020 alone. We were inspired to work even harder and get even more positive news out there to combat the constant barrage of fear and negativity that constitutes the mainstream media, which was especially obvious during the pandemic.
We started Rooftop TV and made 16 episodes packed full of inspiring stories of the hard work and achievements of individuals and small charities which go unnoticed by larger media outlets.
This year, we also launched The Rooftop Podcast, where our hosts Ian Morton and Delia Antoine Burdett interview guests whose uplifting stories we have featured on our site.
We at The Rooftop are so proud of everything that we have achieved in the last three years, and can’t wait to see what the next few have in store for us.
