The Heard Citizen celebrates 5 years of local news coverage

(Franklin, GA) — Five years ago today, we created and launched HeardCitizen.com in hopes of reinventing the way that news and other information is delivered to our local community.

While we have great respect for our two weekly print newspapers, we saw an obvious need for information and news to be shared more than just once per week and we attempted to fill that void in an innovative new way.

Our primary goal then (as it is today) is to deliver to our readers honest, accurate, and fair information in a timely and convenient fashion. We hope we have been able to do that.

5We weren’t exactly sure how we would be received at first, but thankfully our loyal readers welcomed us with open arms from the very first day and we appreciate you more than you will ever understand.

In just five years, HeardCitizen.com has welcomed readers from 185 countries and our pages have been viewed well over 2 million times which we feel is pretty amazing for such a small community news site.

It is important to note, however, that our FREE site would not be possible without the help and support of our wonderful advertising sponsors so as always we invite you to support them as much as possible. They are the ones that make this free daily site possible.

We would also like to thank our contributing writers and others who send us community announcements, church news, school news, letters to the editor, and other various content as well as those at the several local agencies who have always shown a willingness to work with us by providing the important information we need on a daily basis.

While it would certainly be impossible to thank everyone individually, most of all we want to thank you our readers, for without you nothing else would matter. Thanks to each and every one of you for five amazing years!
