Hey y’all! Today marks the 5 year anniversary of The Truth Gazette! I wanted to hop on and sincerely express my appreciation and reflect on the past 5 years of fighting the Fake News! I don’t know how I would’ve done it without the support of each and every one of you! Seriously! Each and every one of you! Supporter or troll - I wouldn’t still be here today without you following me and supporting me along the way, so thank you!
How it’s been 5 years…well, I have no idea! I constantly have people tell me that there’s no such thing as the American Dream or that the American Dream is dead! Well I’m here today as LIVING PROOF that the American Dream is alive and well! It’s feels like just yesterday I turned off the TV and was frustrated with the Fake News Media and sat down to type out what would be The Truth Gazette’s First Article! When I started this whole thing it was a small one-page Word document article sent to a few family members. No social media, no fancy graphics, no viral hashtags, no nothing. Just a simple word document sent in a family email chain. 5 years later one of my recent articles has been shared on social media by the 45th President of the United States and all together I have a global outreach of well over 200,000 followers across the world! That’s insane!
5 years ago I started out with my first-ever interview in the Alabama State House and have gone from interviewing a State Senator to the President of the United State’s Son, Ranking Members of Congress, Cabinet Secretaries, Top Political Commentators, 4 White House Press Secretaries, and dozens of other key political figures in our nation’s politics! I’ve broken several exclusives in my interviews that have created national news stories including in a recent sit-down with Ted Cruz where he revealed his interest in a 2024 run for President that made the cover of national outlets and led the day in political coverage! I’ve also hosted my own podcast, “The Brilyn Hollyhand Show”, released a merchandise line, written dozens of articles discussing everything under the sun, and hosted live election night coverages!
I founded The Truth Gazette a few weeks after I turned 11. I just turned 16 a few weeks ago. Life has changed a lot since I’ve started The Truth Gazette! I’ve started and graduated middle school, finished my first year of high school, and got my Drivers License! But it’s not about me, it’s about y’all! So thank you - each and every one of you - for believing in me enough to click that follow button, or watch my interviews, or subscribe to my email list, or stop me and talk to me at events. Thank you. I am forever grateful!
Today's a big day, one that each and every one of you deserve to celebrate along with me. They said I would never make it a few months. An 11-year-old in politics could not survive, but thanks to you I did. And I not only survived but I have thrived. I don’t know how I made it this far but we have! It’s been the shortest, most fun 5 years of my life and I would do it all over again in a heartbeat! And the best part is, it’s not over yet! I’m not stopping anytime soon! So if you’re a ragging liberal who read all of this waiting for me to say I’m hanging my hat up, I’m sorry…because I’m not finished yet! In fact, I’m just getting started!
Keep Fighting the Good Fight,
