A Change For The Tiny Life

I know a lot of you have been following us on Facebook, over like_icon_large9,000 of you in fact, but things are changing.  Facebook is now making me pay for the posts to be seen by you all, even though you said you wanted to see those posts by liking our page.  We crunched the numbers and now for you all to see the posts like you did 1 year ago, Facebook wants to charge us $375,000 a year!

Other tiny house blogs are getting hit as well, some even harder, one has even announced they are going to have to stop posting to Facebook all together.

So obviously I don’t have a third of a Million dollars, so its time to change things up.  Here is how we are going to make sure we stay in touch with you all from now on: We are going shift our focus to our newsletter.

Our newsletter is free and comes out once a week.  Its short emails with awesome info about tiny houses and most of the stuff on the newsletter isn’t anywhere else because we want those who subscribe to benefit directly.   At first I wasn’t sure what people would think, but now I get about 50 emails a day telling me how much they love it, so we’ve decided to go all in with our newsletter.

Also when you sign up you get our:

  • 5 Secrets Building Inspectors Don’t Want You To Know
  • The Ultimate Building Checklist
  • Planning Guide To Building Your House.

We still will be posting to our website of course and some of it will be shared on Facebook for the time being, but now we are going to be doubling our output with the newsletter.

So I wanted to let you all know about all of this and hopefully you’ll join us on the newsletter :)

  1. Good move Ryan. Facebook are just getting greedy. Email is such a personal way of keeping in touch. I am happy to be on your sender’s list. I’m sure your newsletter will point us to the stories that we find interesting and allow us to comment for the benefit of all who subscribe. Cheers

    • Thanks for supporting us! We will still be on Facebook some, but we’ve had some really good responses from our emails, so welcome!

  2. I use RSS to follow the blog using Feedly, which is an excellent alternative for those who want to lighten our email load. So a bit disappointed to hear that not all info will be posted to the blog. Always enjoy your posts!

    • We’ll still be posting just like we always have, but I didn’t want to have a newsletter that just regurgitated the posts for the week. Plus I like people to get a lot of value out of it. I hear you on watching what comes to your email inbox, there are only a select few email newsletters that I let come to my inbox, I hope to be that for you all. Give it a try and if you don’t like it (we hope you do), there is a unsubscribe button at the bottom of every single email; one click and your off the list. It’s that easy.

  3. Fine by me, I detest Facebook anyway. Too few sites like yours, mostly narcissistic crap from people with no lives. Back to the newsletter!

    • Newsletters are new to us and we’re still feeling it out. Let me know if you have any feedback, we love to hear it.

  4. Paving the way!!! Love it SO much!!

  5. Never did get into Facebook anyway so no loss for me. I think they’re just putting nails in their own coffin with that ridiculous cash grab though.

  6. Just one more reason not to have anything to do with Facebook. Why anyone does is still beyond me. Plenty of other low to no cost alternatives out there.

  7. Hey! Quick question that’s completely off topic. Do you know how to make
    your site mobile friendly? My blog looks weird when viewing from my iphone.
    I’m trying to find a template or plugin that might be able to fix this issue.
    If you have any suggestions, please share. Thanks!
