This past Sunday marked the 7th anniversary of the launch of ARLnow.com. Above is the first photo we ever published, showing Crystal Drive in Crystal City during the 2009 “Snowpocalypse.”
Seven years later, we’re still going strong and providing up-to-the-minute, on-the-ground coverage of breaking news and important community stories — plus local opinions, event listings, photo essays and the occasional light feature or weird news story.
The top three most-read articles of the week we launched had to do with snow, snow and cupcakes, accumulating a total of 277 pageviews. That’s 78 times smaller than the readership of the past week’s top three articles.
Feel free to discuss those articles or any other topic of local interest in the comments. Have a nice weekend!
