The Gremlin is an online news and information website for the Eden District [Garden Route & Klein | Little Karoo].

It is updated with a selection of the latest International, National, Business and Sports News between 7 am and 8 am weekdays.  Local News covering George, Plettenberg Bay, Knysna, Sedgefield, Mossel Bay, Hessequa and Klein Karoo is published on receipt.

The Gremlin Morning Editions, distributed to a permission-based mailing list at around 8 am weekdays include:


I launched The Gremlin in October 2009 with fewer than 100 readers.  Today I have a loyal daily readership of 4 000+ and an occasional readership of 2 – 6 000.  Annual unique visitors now number over 400 000.

The Gremlin is aimed at the small business owner, management and other decision-makers as well as recently retired individuals who are still economically active.  The site’s demographics reflects this as 65%+ of my readers are in the 35 to 60 age group in the LSM6 and upwards categories.  The gender split is roughly 60% male and 40% female.


The Gremlin is, primarily, aimed at creating a platform to give exposure to my web hosting clients.  However, there are various advertising opportunities to all Companies.


  1. To provide a reliable, consistent and up-to-date stream of news and information – free from cheap sensationalism and outside influence.
  2. To be a central hub for news and information by including as many RSS feeds and Newsletters as are relevant.
  3. To be an advertising platform for locally-owned and operated businesses as well as those whose products and services are relevant to businesses and individuals living in the Eden District.
  4. To actively engage with readers on Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn.
  5. To actively inform followers and promote local businesses on these three social media platforms.


The Gremlin offers a platform where Companies may publish their regular Newsletters as well as Press Releases and Opinion Pieces FREE of charge.
