It's a milestone day for us here at the de Jong Dream House. Today we hit 200,000 page views. Still small potatoes compared to the major bloggers, but it's big news for us.

A little history:

  • We started this blog on May 22, 2011, thinking only our family around the world would see it.
  • We hit 5,000 page views on August 4, 2011, 11 weeks into the blog and 24 days into our build, the day the trusses for our roof went up. We started to get the idea that other home owners were looking for people like us who somehow found the time to document each step and decision of the process.
  • We hit 100,000 page views on July 29, 2012, 14 months from launch, our fifth anniversary, and five months after we moved in. We learned that not only did the folks who watch our house being built stick around, but we made new friends as more visitors were curious to see how we made our house a home.

  • Today, January 29, 2013, we reached 200,000 page views, just 6 months after hitting 100,000. We are settled in and enjoying life, still learning new ways to be green.

Thanks to all our friends, old and new, for sharing this adventure with us. If you'd like to stay informed, please considered following us via email, RSS, or on Facebook
