Launched This Week: Ohio Conservative Review


Launched This Week: Ohio Conservative Review

Thursday, May 9, 2013

Yesterday Ohioans gained access to the newest forum for debating public policy in their state:, and it looks like the site is here to stay.

Within 24 hours of launching, the website racked up 4,071 page views from almost 500 unique visitors.  And those web surfers weren’t just passing through.  On average, they opened seven pages each.

“OCR seeks out Ohio’s best conservative minds and gives them a forum to promote conservative beliefs,” according to the website.  “Our goal is to influence current policy and public opinion and to train the next generation in the benefits of conservative thought and ideas.”

Ohio Conservative Review already addresses a wide range of subjects, including Ohio party politics, the Heartbeat Bill, Obamacare and Medicaid, adoption of CommonCore education standards, and religious liberty.

OCR went live with one of the widest and fastest growing writer bases for a site of its kind.  Currently, OCR writers hail from a range of sectors across Ohio and include small-business owners, teachers, lawyers, Realtors, public servants, political activists, and entrepreneurs.

After only a few hours, interest was spreading across Ohio.  In addition to receiving tips and requests for articles throughout the day, OCR editors have been offered assistance promoting their site.  Some have responded to its “Write for OCR” page.  Its Facebook page has garnered 90 “Likes,” and it is gaining followers on Twitter (@theOCReview).
