Happy five-year anniversary, Charleston. It’s wild to think about our very first newsletter, which we sent exactly five years ago on Feb. 15, 2018. Who remembers our launch party at Edmund’s Oast Brewing Company? 🎉

Here’s how we’ve grown through the years...

  • Subscribers: We started with 10,500 by our launch in February. Shout out to all of you who took a leap of faith and subscribed to us pre-launch and are still waking up with us. Today, weve grown to 54,000 subscribers and appreciate every single one of you. If you haven’t joined the conversation, here’s your opportunity.
  • Instagram: We started from scratch in late 2017, and grew to 8,000 followers by February 2018. Today, we have 96,000 Instagram friends. Y’all make our community thrive with your tags and comments.
  • Facebook: Like Instagram, we started from scratch, and grew to 4,600 page likes by February. Today, we’ve grown to 17,000 likes.
