As of yesterday, March 2nd, the LJE has reached a milestone of a total of 100 articles that have been published to the LJ title. When Katie Holmes started writing for the LJE over three years ago, her goal was to report local designer news and jewelry industry news as it pertains to what jewelry styles and trends readers will witness on the local level in nearby department stores and boutiques. The LJE has offered readers a selection of jewelry shop reviews, spotlighted local independent jewelry artisans, and compiled jewelry making tutorials for beginner, intermediate, and advanced crafters of all ages. LJE has striven to maintain unique reporting styles and provide articles that continue to be interesting to readers. They hope they've been able to exceed the expectation of regular readers.
The site also allows writers to numerically track traffic throughout titles, and it has been interesting to watch readership and subscriptions grow continually. LJE has a fair number of both unique visitors and dedicated subscribers alike who return to the site. Readers are the people who contribute the most to the site, and who continue to allow all areas of the site to grow. The LJE has enjoyed it's own growth by consistently ranking in the top five of most locally visited titles in the region for 2014, and has ranked pretty well on a national level of fashion and style categories. In celebration of the successes LJE has enjoyed, and as a thank you to new and returning readers, we've compiled a list of the most memorable moments in the jewelry realm over the last three years. LJE hopes you enjoy their little reflection, and return for more jewelry related news in the future.

As LJE reflects, make sure to take advantage of reviews, articles, and lists, and tutorials that are available. It's amazing how much there is to know and understand about the world of jewelry, and there is much ground yet to cover. What will the next three years, or next 100 stories bring? That remains to be seen.
