Last year was a great year for PW online. We added new podcasts and newsletters, made a ton of friends on Twitter and Facebook, and have had the busiest year ever at publishersweekly.com. (Indeed, this very page was added to the magazine to help you keep tabs on our ever-expanding range of digital offerings.) Before we close the books for good on 2013, here are a few highlights from our digital year. Thanks for helping make it a successful one—and we’ll see you in 2014.
