A Handful Of Changes To Better Bring You Richland County News

1 Feb , 2019  

Here are a couple of quotes – one heard from a Mansfield area journalist some weeks ago (not important who it was), and another from a news publisher in another location far from here. Both refer to the concept of including links from other media on one’s news site. The first is paraphrased but very much the gist of what was shared.

Local Journalist“We would never do that. We’re in competition with other sites!”

Non-Local Publisher:“The one mystery of … news organizations is that they still don’t link out.. which is ludicrous. Every day… multiple news organizations are putting out stuff that’s interesting to the audience, and if you’re not willing to share that with them, shame on you!”

What that publisher discovered is a premise upon which 1812Blockhouse is based. We want to be the best place to go each day to get access to the best writing and coverage about Richland County and Richland Countians. More…

Thank You, Richland County!

22 Nov , 2018  

On our first Thanksgiving here at 1812Blockhouse, we shared a message of thanks from us to you, our readers. We re-posted the same article a year later on Thanksgiving 2017 with relevant updates, and we’re doing so again this year with a couple of updates (in italics). Otherwise, this is the same message we have shared before. The sentiments have not changed.

Please be aware that we are not going to be publishing on Thanksgiving Day as we share the day with family. We’ll be back and in full form first thing on Friday morning. More…

What’s In A Name – Or A Logo?

21 Nov , 2018  

We don’t talk about ourselves that often at 1812Blockhouse, which is an oversight we really need to correct. The last time we spoke in first person was when we shared news of the launch of 1808Delaware back in September (things are going well there – be sure to check it out at: www.1808delaware.com).

Today we thought we’d point out a bit of a change on 1812Blockhouse – particularly on desktop, tablet, and smartphone. It’s our logo. You may note the slightly updated look, our first in over two years.  More…

Two Announcements From 1812Blockhouse

5 Sep , 2018  

From Thomas Palmer, 1812Blockhouse Publisher:

There’s something about the number “two” I really like.

I have two children, for starters.

Here’s another reason: 1812Blockhouse is celebrating the number “two” in “two” ways this week. First, we turn two years old on Saturday – a mini milestone for any local media effort. Second, we are sharing an announcement below that very much concerns the same number. More…

Two Thousand Five Hundred Posts

2 Jul , 2018  

Last week, a mini-milestone took place here at 1812Blockhouse that went completely unnoticed by us. Unnoticed, that is, until we were loading stories for Monday’s edition and the post counter showed 2,514.

That’s 2,514 individual items posted on the site since it launched on September 8, 2016. More…
