Today Marks One Year Anniversary For Dunwoody Patch

Thank you for your readership and support

Today marks the one year anniversary of the launch of Dunwoody Patch.

Our original plan was to launch the site on Nov. 19, 2010, but then news broke that Russell ‘Rusty’ Sneiderman had been shot and killed outside of a Dunwoody daycare on the morning of Nov. 18, we decided to push the site online a day early and to cover the story.

We’ve followed that story, along with many others since that date. 

In the past year we’ve published nearly 1,500 stories, broken local news stories and developed a solid online readership.

Peter - Congrats!!! Your team has done a great job here in Dunwoody. You have built a strong foundation for one of the most trusted, go-to sites for everything Dunwoody. One of the current highlights is the Holiday Guide 2011. One stop shopping for everything anyone will need to find during the holiday season. Once again Peter, you and your team have accomplished in one year what many others have tried but not quite achieved. I hope you are proud of your efforts and achievements, because many of us here in Dunwoody surely are. Lindsay

Glad to see there is a patch for Dunwoody. We're be on vacation soon and it includes a stop in Dunwoody to see family. Now we can find things to do!

Thank you, Peter, for your diligence over the past year. Your hard work, dedication, and talent are obvious through the quality and breadth of the reporting. Dunwoody Patch puts the other local papers to shame. It has been a valuable resource for my first year back in Dunwoody. I hope you continue to be successful through the future years. Josh
