With over 1.1 unique visitors, 3.78 million overall visitors and over 12 million page views per month, Necole Bitchie has become a go-to online destination for urban gossip and fashion commentary. Necole has grown the site and her social media presence over the past year. The site has over 200,000 Twitter followers and 36,000 Facebook fans, and Necole sits at its center--unafraid to be the brand and never shying away from making her story known.
And her story is quite powerful, the blogging superstar had to endure the loss of both parents after college, joblessness and homelessness before launching the site that would make her famous.
In 2011, after being featured in a powerful story in Ebony Magazine, Necole was requested by the Tom Joyner Morning Show to appear on their daily segment with Jacque Reid, titled "Her Story."
Ever the astute businesswoman, Bitchie has been diversifying her online presence. In April of 2011, she launched Bitchie Life, the lifestyle tier of NecoleBitchie.com. The site features relationship advice, beauty, fashion and Q&A's. She's also launching a product line called 'Born Bitchie.'
