Every year, Second Wave publishes a review of top stories over the past year. I'm happy to learn that six of my stories in 2014 rated in the top 10 for the magazine - hurrah!
Eating well and the people who help us do that proved to be the kind of story readers of Southwest Michigan's Second Wave read the most in 2014. Food or farm stories placed heavily in our Top 10 for the year.
What was the top read feature? Second Wave has reported several stories in comics form from the talented Simon Borst. In 2014 our graphic look at the Kalamazoo Promise and those who have returned to the city after benefiting from the scholarship program for Michigan public universities or colleges was the best read of our feature stories.
People also were interested in businesses getting on their feet, like Kori Jock's handmade underwear start-up. And stories that looked at the bigger pictures, like how women are changing the craft brew business also found a following.
And we would be remiss if we did not give a shout out to Zinta Aistars, who wrote six of the Top 10.
Overall, 2014 was another great year for Southwest Michigan’s Second Wave. Our readership continues to climb as more and more people find us and share our stories. (We encourage sharing!) As we get ready to go into our fifth year of publication here is our list of the Top 10 stories for 2014:
