One of the perks of being PolicyMic's community manager is that I get a firsthand look at the growth and interaction of our incredible platform of pundits, readers, and commenters.
PolicyMic is growing fast, and a lot of that growth is happening organically through word of mouth and referrals from happy users. This is wonderful for a number of reasons, but one in particular is that other media outlets and organizations are paying attention to the work our community is doing, and giving them some well-deserved press.
Below is just a sampling of the places PolicyMic-ers appeared in the past few weeks. Congrats to ALL of our community members who've been highlighted across the web!
Remember, if you've been stirring up debate elsewhere on the web, please let us know so we can brag about you.

When Justin Douglas gave props to the University of Florida for being just as great as any ivy league school, Florida independent news outlet the Alligator proudly ran the story among its campus news. This was but one place Justin's work showed up on the web — his PolicyMic piece was shared on Facebook over 60,000 times!
