Designer’s town blog draws record readers
A SHEPTON designer who set up a blog has seen record daily hits of between 200 and 700.
Belinda Ollis, who runs No 21 in Shepton with Wayne Ollis, set up a blog about four years ago to help promote the town.
Belinda said: “It is only recently, in the last year, that I have been regularly maintaining it,” and since then, A Town in Somerset, has continually had hundreds of views per day.
“I was inspired to start it because of a passion for the town and its strong historical foundation. It is a town with opportunities to redefine itself. The power of the internet via a blog is a fabulous vehicle to bring people to the town.”
