January 9th marks the second anniversary of the PhillyClout blog! We’re thrilled to still be here reporting on city hall and local politics – and we couldn’t do it without our loyal readership.
Here are a couple of 2009 highlights:
- PhillyClout had 760,000 hits, a fifty percent increase over 2008.
- With speedy reporting, we brought you up to the minute news on the municipal budget crisis, city hall happenings and hot political gossip.
- Our readers got to pose us question in live chats.
- We won a Pennsylvania Associated Press Managing Editors award for our blogging of the 2008 general Election Day.
We know 2010 will be an even better year here at PhillyClout. Our timely city hall reporting will continue and we plan to bring you regular updates on the gubanatorial and senate races. So stay tuned…
