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…

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…

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

Digital Marketing And Yes, There Were Great Donuts And Coffee

24 Feb , 2018  

As sessions got underway at Friday’s donuts + coffee + digital marketing event at Idea Works, it was clear that a wide cross-section of area businesspeople was in attendance.

Some came hoping to gain knowledge and resources needed to take their first tentative steps into the world of online marketing. Others were already conversant in many digital tools, eager to compare notes and move to the next level. Both seemed to benefit from the opportunity to meet like-minded individuals with the same goals. More…
