One Year of the Alameda Post

We have grown from a startup to Alameda’s leading online news source in just one year.

Happy first anniversary to us! The Alameda Post published our first article on this day, December 13, one year ago. We have enjoyed an exciting year of growth as the city’s daily source for online news and information. In our first year we have seen some amazing statistics.
