I started my Brick House 319 blog one year ago today on a lark. I never thought it would take off, let alone go viral with 79,021 hits on the first day. As of today, the blog has gotten almost 1.3 million views and almost 5000 comments.
I have been a contributing blogger on Huffington Post since 2010 (bloggers write for free on Huffington in exchange for promoting a blog or website under their byline). I published Brick House 319’s first blog post on Huffington. Thousands and thousands of readers were intrigued with our story about buying a house that needed a tremendous amount of work. They clicked through to my blog and the number reached to 79,021 views in one day. I was floored to say the least.
In the six years that I have been blogging on Huffington, the most popular post I had written was about a knitting vacation on a schooner in Maine; it got over 2000 hits. And, yes, even an innocuous article about knitting received nasty comments! Can you imagine!
Fast forward to today, one year later, and the blog is still going strong. In a nutshell, the house has been re-built, a 2-story addition was added, and we’re still working on it everyday from morning til night.
Thank you to all of my subscribed blog followers who have stayed with me for the entire year and for all your positive comments and compliments. I hope you’ll continue to watch our progress as we go from one project to the next!
