PBH Hits 500k!

Posted on October 1, 2008. Filed under: prose before hos |

PBH finally cracked the 500,000 unique hit mark, after lots of ebbs and flows over the past year (it actually took a year and a half to reach this mark, though there has only been consistent blogging for 6 months of that time). We’re proud (for the most part) of the product we’ve put out and appreciate everyone’s comments and patronage. We’re looking for more bloggers, so if you are interested, drop a comment below or email alec. A full summary of the most popular posts is below:
