Super Low Cost Housing Message Going Global

It’s been fun watching the web stats on our blog hit record highs every month (at least up until our new blog that doesn’t yet show this). I take the surge in readership as a sign we’re on the right track. Our message about building do-it-yourself, dirt cheap houses using locally available natural materials is resonating worldwide. A new admin feature on our WordPress blog shows what country visitors are from and the number of hits. Not surprisingly, many readers are from the US (highest number of visitors), Canada, United Kingdom and Australia. But it’s surprising to me to see so many visitors from South Korea, Romania, Russia, India, Mexico, Spain, Brazil, Italy, Germany, Ukraine, New Zealand, France, Netherlands, Philippines, South Africa and on and on – almost every country in the world, in fact.

This might be a good time to remind new readers about all the resources we’ve put together to help people build their own home for as little money as possible. New readers may not know about our other sites and what else is available besides our Natural Building Blog.
Earthbag (mothership of all things related to earthbag building—articles, videos, testing info, resources, etc.)
Earthbag House Plans (over 130 affordable plans)
Earthbag Natural Houses YouTube Channel (almost 100 videos, including dozens of short clips showing each step of earthbag construction)
Earthbag Instructables
Earthbag (key info for emergency aid workers and other who are building in natural disaster areas)
Earthbag Building Guide (most up-to-date book on earthbag building)
Basic Earthbag Building DVD (over 3 hours of step-by-step instructions showing the construction of an earthbag structure)

  1. This post says it has 2 comments but they’re not showing up for me – new site glitch? Anyway I was going to mention that the Natural Building Facebook page has also been having off the charts traffic, so much so that the person who started the page can no longer keep up with welcoming every 100 new members! Pretty impressive. I can’t wait to start seeing evidence of this shift where I live (other than my own project, of course ;) ).

    • Reply from Kelly’s wife Rosana: “I think the glitch about not seeing comments was most likely in the reader. I tried them both in chrome and in firefox and they show perfectly, as does the rss feed.”

  2. Very great post. I just stumbled upon your weblog and wished to say that I have truly enjoyed browsing your blog posts. After all I’ll be subscribing in your rss feed and I am hoping you write once more soon!
