I’ll keep it short ‘n’ sweet this year since I went on tangents the past two years (you can see those hot messes here and here): Happy three-year anniversary to The Prospect!

The past 12 months in particular have been a time of accomplishments, growth, and awesomeness within the TP fam, including (but most definitely not limited to):

  • Reaching over 3 million total views last November.
  • Reaching the 1 million unique visitors mark in January (WHAAAAAAAT?!?!).
  • Reaching the 3000 posts published threshold in January.
  • Launching four amazing high school blogs as schools all over the country.
  • Graduating our first college class (weird to think we have former staff people who are now ~real world adults~).
  • Making our magazine debut in Glamour.

And on a personal note, knowing that over one million sets of eyeballs have been on the site is mind-boggling to me, and I’m truly humbled that I get to work with so many interesting, ambitious, and intelligent minds every day.

Thanks for a great year, y’all. It’s 1000% one for the books.

Live long and Prospect.
