Currently the Elegant Themes Blog is one of the most popular blogs about WordPress in the world. It is the most popular blog about Divi in the world and we?d like to make it one of the premiere destinations for web design in the world too.
We average over 1.5 million monthly blog visitors and our email subscriber count is over 300,000. We maintain high momentum in terms of content creation and publication, which in turn tends to fuel rapid growth for all our content channels.
Currently our primary content channels / community outposts are as follows: YouTube Channel (100k+ subscribers), Facebook Page (137k+), Facebook Group (46k+), and Meetup Network (5.5k+). All of which require skilled writing and well designed assets to maintain and grow.
As a company our closest held core value is Elegance. It's in our name, we strive for it in our products, and we want our content to embody it as well. To us, this means written copy that is clear and concise?yet also friendly and enjoyable to read.
When it comes to the vast majority of our content, we're creating tutorials that solve technical or creative problems at the intersection of WordPress and Web Design.
