I know that I have groaned on and on about this flood, but it’s still been a remarkable time. The Capital Journal’s website traffic reached 1 million views last month, single-copy sales nearly doubled and our social media insights increased by percents in the thousands. Most of all, we gained a level of respect from the community for our breaking and thorough coverage. Not bad for a staff of four with less than 10 years of journalism experienced combined.
In celebration, I thought I would post some products of all those long days and Subway Veggie-Delights (with pepper jack, no dressing). You guys like to read my byline, right? Wink, wink. Anyway, I won’t win any Pultizers for these pieces but I am proud of them.
My series on southeast Pierre and the buyout
My first series, before the releases were increased and the communities went into flood-mode
