Thank you

aoa small box logoWe just wanted to take a moment to thank everyone for voting for AOA in this year's Metroland readers' poll. AOA again did well in a handful of categories -- we very much appreciate that people are keeping us in mind.

And a tip of the hat to both Nippertown and KAB. We're happy to see other local indie sites continue to get recognition.

We've been at this five years now, which somehow doesn't seem possible. And yet here we are, thanks in large part to you. Thank you.

Birthday party: A bunch of people have been asking about this year's AOA birthday party. It'll be a little later than usual, but we'll have details soon.


I was just wondering about that (the birthday party) today! :)

You deserve to win, because you all work so hard for a quality product!

Yay AOA! Over the years, I've come to see you less as a mere local news site, and more as the sane, rational-minded person's answer to local news.

Thank you for keeping me (and, I'm sure, many others in the 518) from feeling like we're drowning in a sea of local craziness.

Albany tightened its rules for shoveling snowy sidewalks last winter -- so how'd that work out?

If winter ever gets its act together and drops more snow on us, there will be sidewalks to shovel. And shortly after that, Albany will... (more)
