The Fortune Cookie has been getting a lot of buzz lately. A few days ago, Steven over at Tiny House Swoon gave me some love. Steven also runs Tiny House Listings and was the first person to ever feature The Fortune Cookie and I. Thank you Steven for all the love, I doubt I would have nearly all the traffic that I do without you giving me such good press.
After Steven posted a link to the Tiny House Swoon article on Facebook, my recent post ‘A Story About Living Small’ went pretty viral. That post has well over 5,000 views now! If you recall, my highest blog post viewing had been just over 1k year-to-date. Needless to say, I was ecstatic! I am also totally stoked that Merete and Christopher from the documentary TINY: A Story About Living Small got some press via that post. Merete was even sweet enough to link to my blog post on Facebook. Which then Kent from Tiny House Blog also shared my blog post on Facebook. You’re both rad, thank you.
A big thanks to all of my readers, new or old. I am flattered that so many of you have stopped by and read my blog. Some of you have even done so repeatedly! It is a bit humbling knowing that my posts are read by so many people. This month has been my highest traffic month to date! I cannot thank all of you enough.
Now I have even more exciting news! Lloyd Kahn, yes THE Lloyd Kahn sent me an e-mail asking for pictures as well as a story about The Fortune Cookie. I did not realize who it was with our first e-mail exchange. By the second e-mail I was like “Oh… my …..God…” and geeked out for a bit. I immediately sent Abel a message, as I figured he would be excited too.
Abel was left breathless, seeing as Lloyd Kahn has been a major inspiration to him. We both danced around happily. On top of all of it Lloyd is mailing me out a copy of Tiny Homes: Simple Shelter which I cannot wait to sink my teeth into. I have wanted a copy of this book for years, but had not managed to purchase it yet.
I asked Lloyd when he needed pictures by and got in touch with Scott Haydon to bring him on board for this project. I blame him for the success of my recent viral post. His beautiful photography work brought out the magic of my house. Scott is popping by mid-August and we are going to do another shoot of my house. This time getting a lot more interior shots.
Lloyd asks that I submit a story with my photos. 200 – 300 words or more if the story is really good. I stink at short descriptions. If you were to describe my story to someone, how would you tell it? Leave me a comment below!
