The Block Is Coming To 1812Blockhouse

28 Oct , 2019  

From Thomas/1812Blockhouse Publisher: It's been some time since we shared info with our readers about goings-on here at 1812Blockhouse. That is exactly what we are doing today, and there's some mighty big news to talk about. Last Thursday, we had an 1812 staff meeting at Relax! in downtown Mansfield – always a super place to meet. That afternoon that I fell in love with their dark roast coffee (which I highly recommend, by the way) and we talked about the coming two months, which are going to be busy. Read More

A Quick Guide To 1812Blockhouse Series

9 Oct , 2019  

In the three-plus years that 1812Blockhouse has been on the air, we have launched several "series" of related posts. Some we have continued throughout that time. Others we have launched, paused for a bit after a few stories have been posted, and then picked up later. You may well see at least one of those series come back before the year’s end. Read More

1812Blockhouse: Three Years Of Pioneering

8 Sep , 2019  

You might not realize it, but at this very moment you are reading a post on a local news and information website that differs from almost every other such site in the country. When the switch was flipped back on September 8, 2016, Richland County became the very first small to mid-sized media market in America (that we knew of or know of) with a site committed to keeping its readers informed not only through its own news coverage, but also by actually pointing readers to local news covered by other media as well. Each day since, we have not only done our own reporting, but we have featured links to stores on WMFD, the Mansfield News Journal, Richland Source, and to social media posts from dozens of other local governments, organizations, churches, and businesses to create a one-stop information center. It has now been three years since 1812Blockhouse went live. Over 3,700 posts, 50,000 shared links, and millions of views later, that goal of creating informed readers remains at the very heart of what we do. Read More

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. Read More
