The Blanchard House Blog celebrates it’s 2nd birthday today! It’s been two short years since we launched and I’m happy to report that things are still going strong. With blog posts from nearly a dozen authors, including staff, volunteers, and interns, during the past 24 months, the Society has highlighted historic photographs from our collection, stories from our members and visitors, event and program details, Society news, and even the occasional nugget of interesting historical research we’ve stumbled upon.
Thanks to you, our readers, plus other web visitors, our blog is currently averaging over 300 visitors a day… with some days in January 2011 seeing as many as 1100 different visitors. (And no, that doesn’t include robots ;o) We know many of you read the blog entries on facebook, too and we love seeing the comments and questions! We’ve had busy weeks and quieter spells, but overall we’re averaging a blog post every other day. And wait till you see what’s in store next…
2011 will continue to bring interesting stories, photos, events and historical tidbits to share with you. We’re expanding our online presence, as well as our outreach in the community, every week and the Blanchard House Blog is the first place to hear all about it. Thanks for reading – now help us blow out the birthday candles so that this year’s wish will come true!
P.S. Don’t forget, you can always send us suggestion about topics, photos or events you would like to see covered in the Blanchard House Blog. You can even become a writer – just email, call or stop by the Society and we’ll get you started!
