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…

Thank You, Mansfield!

23 Nov , 2017  

We’re happy to re-post our first Thanksgiving message we shared in November of 2016, updated for today. The sentiments expressed herein have not changed.

1812Blockhouse is brand new – just two and a half months old (make that 1 year and two and a half months old), in fact. That’s plenty of time, however, to develop a list of thank yous to share its first Thanksgiving Day.

With that in mind, 1812Blockhouse shares: More…

Richland Source Launches New Office, Venture

5 Jul , 2017  

Today marks an important milestone for a local media business.

Richland Source, an online-only site which began approximately four years ago, is launching its new operational headquarters today. It’s not just a new site for them, it’s a new co-working space in downtown Mansfield.

It has moved from its home since mid-2013 on Temple Court. Adjacent to The Brickyard, that location provided limited space for news operations and meeting space. The new location at 40 West Fourth Street changes that dynamic, well… dynamically. More…

Three Weeks, Two Lessons

2 Oct , 2016  

It’s important along a journey to occasionally take some time out and take stock of where you are.

Our arrival on the local media scene is no different. Of course, that launch was very recent – just a little over three weeks ago, in fact. It came on the same day as a very important family birth, thus providing hopeful positive energy.

So, can three weeks of experience produce even a glimmer of insight into whether or not we are on the right path? Perhaps. More…
