On January 20, 2010, The Gossips of Rivertown published its first post. Three years and 2,537 posts later, Gossips has become a source of information and entertainment that people with an interest in Hudson rely on and value. In the past year, Gossips had more than half a million pageviews, setting a record in April of 2,000 pageviews in a single day and then exceeding that number so many times we stopped counting. Recognizing its reach, people asked to advertise on Gossips, and Gossips happily obliged. Also last year, 130 readers showed their appreciation for Gossips' unique brand of hyperlocal news and commentary by setting their own subscription rate--anywhere from $10 to $250--and becoming "voluntary paid subscribers."
On its third anniversary, Gossips invites you to join the celebration of what may be Hudson's best read blog and add your name to the list of 2013 Subscribers. Just click on the "Donate" button in the right column. Your support--in any amount--is deeply and humbly appreciated.
Gossips' third anniversary cake, created by Christine Jones of The Red Barn, came from LICK: The Market.
