We officially have 1,000 posts on The Tiny Life! It’s crazy to think that I’ve done a thousand posts on this blog that I started six and a half years ago. So today I wanted to look back to the start of The Tiny Life and share some thoughts about what’s next.
I started back in 2009 with a laptop and a book on how to code HTML. I had this thing called WordPress, but I didn’t really “get it”. I had no money at the time and spent $120 for a year of website hosting just so I could try it. This is what the site looked like back then during the first month I started:
We’ve grown a lot since then: a staff of two, a small army of contractors and a huge base of amazing readers. I wrote the top selling tiny house book in 2014 and 2015, launched our conference several years ago, started a podcast, wrote several ebooks, and traveled all around the world talking about tiny houses. We’ve had the good fortune of being featured by The New York Times, Bloomberg, TreeHugger, Mother Earth News, NPR, BBC, ABC, NBC, Popular Science, Apartment Therapy, Forbes, and countless others.
What’s more, we’ve met so many of you! At the Tiny House Conference, at other events, and by chance. I say this every time, but it’s true: tiny house people are just awesome!
Moving forward we have a lot going on. We’re currently hiring a video producer, so if you know someone who might be a good fit, let them know! We of course have the Tiny House Conference coming up in April 2-3 in Asheville for 2016. Our next print book is coming out this spring which we are very excited about. Finally we have a lot of projects coming out this year that we aren’t quite ready to talk about yet, but have been in the works for a few months now.
