We’ve had one hell of a year, and we could not have done it without all of you.

Below are just some of the stories you cared most about:

And let’s not forget Joshua Albert’s breathtaking protest photojournalism in which he documents our city’s vibrant displays of First Amendment expression!

With over 180,000 visitors to The Declaration since we launched in late 2012 –  and over 140,000 alone in 2014 – next year promises to be an even better one.

We’ve grown the number of contributors who bring fresh perspectives and great writing to the site, including Sarah McLaughlin’s story on Drexel University’s cyber-militarization efforts, and Brianna Dinan’s passion for environmental sustainability.

So a huge, heartfelt thank you to all of our readers for your support, and for allowing us the opportunity to do what we love. We will continue to fill gaps in local news with original reporting and curating stories you need, not just stories you want. We also intend to continue growing the number of staff while exploring ways to innovate the way we deliver news to you.

If you’re a local journalist, or know of someone who blogs locally, and would like us to showcase writing, let us know.

From all of us to all of you, have a very happy New Year.
