Ten years ago, The Livingston Post wasn’t in existence. The community news and information site launched as Livingston Talk in October 2009 and sputtered along until it was reborn and relaunched as The Livingston Post in January 2012.
Since then, the LivPo discovered its footing, honed its style, and grew tremendously, from a couple thousand page views a year in the beginning to nearly 1.9 million page views this year.
There are lots of reasons for the site’s wild success, chief among them the impeccable journalistic instincts and talent of two former co-workers at the Livingston County Daily Press & Argus who found themselves laid off in April 2009: publisher Maria Stuart and popular contributor Buddy Moorehouse.
The site provides Livingston County a lot of thought-provoking, entertaining content, as well as some things no other media outlet does: opinion pieces and in-depth political punditry. The site also provides an outlet for guest columns and letters to the editor.
At the end of each year, LivPo compiles a list of its most-read pieces. As we move into the 2020s, and as the LivPo ends a decade of digital publishing, it also offers up a list of its most-read pieces of its first decade in existence.
