Yesterday morning we learned that TIME has named Narratively one of its "50 Best Websites of 2013"—and we're number six on the list, in very esteemed company. This came as a complete surprise (albeit an extremely welcome one, as you can imagine) and was an emotional day for us, just eight months after you Kickstarted what was then just a passionate community of storytellers with a crazy idea. We've come a long way since, publishing 36 weeks of beautiful, previously untold stories about New York City and beyond. We of course have a long way to go, but we welcome this recognition with open arms, and thank you for your continued support and feedback.
If you haven't yet signed up for Narratively's weekly email, we encourage you to do so (we never spam!) so you can stay up to date on our latest stories and events. And in case you missed it, Caroline Rothstein's "Legends Never Die," which catches up with the kids from the cult film "Kids," became our most popular story ever last week, with more than 7,400 likes on Facebook. Please check it out!
Thank you all for believing in us. We're just getting started.
