Hello and happy holidays, Periscope readers!

Well, 2011 is almost over and, given the economic turmoil, the earthquakes, the continuing wars and the hefty heapings of bad news, there are probably quite a few of us who are ready to see 2012 already. Here in the news business, it’s easy to get bogged down in the daily barrage of depressing news and even easier to forget all the good that happened in 2011: From the big stories, such as the revolutions in the Arab world and the somewhat easing of the famine in Somalia, to the smaller stories, like Rep. Gabrielle Giffords’s remarkable recovery from an assassin’s bullet,  the tens of thousands of people who donated to a charity chosen by 9-year-old Rachel Beckwith, after she died in a car accident, and the recent spate of Secret Santas making some Americans’ Christmases all the brighter.

It’s been quite a year for us here at The Periscope Post, as well: Thanks to you all, our readership in 2011 grew by leaps and bounds. We’ve continued to hone our model, in the hopes of bringing you the most interesting reads from around the world, and we’ve introduced new ways to share your views on the site. And our team has grown – in late August, we welcomed our newest and youngest member, Austin, the first Periscope Baby.

We’re hoping that 2012 will be just as amazing and with your help, it will be – be sure to tell your friends about us!

Thanks for your support and may you have a brilliant holiday and a wonderful new year!

The Periscope Team
