Thank You for Being Our Friend

RHBB Celebrates two years on FacebookThis month marks our two year anniversary on Facebook. We have over 15,000 likes. Wahoo!

We appreciate your support!

Thank you for being our reader and for being our friend on Facebook. Friending us on Facebook helps us get you the news on road conditions, wildfires, and more as soon as possible.

If you are on Facebook and want to make sure you get the latest information as fast as it comes out, here are some steps you can take. (P.S. These steps also help us get the word out and grow the number of our readers.)

  • Like us if you haven’t already. Click here to go to our homepage and select the LIKE button.
  • Share this post and others with your friends on Facebook. Every time you share one of our posts, Facebook notices that you appreciate our information so the next time we post, they’ll be more likely to share the information with you. (That’s right even if you like our page on Facebook, you don’t get every post we send out. Facebook selects who gets to see the posts. The more you like, comment, and share posts, the more Facebook will share our posts with you AND this helps us.)
  • Comment on our posts on Facebook. Even a simple “Wow!” lets Facebook know to share our posts with you more often.
  • React to our posts on Facebook. Just selecting like or one of these other images tells Facebook that you are interested and they’ll be more likely to share our posts with you in the future.Facebook icons

Not on Facebook but still want to get news fast? To the right of our home page, is a subscribe box. Put your name and email in and we’ll send each new post right to your email. Here’s what it looks like:Subscribe to RHBB

Love us and want to help? Tell businesses that you read us and your friends do, too. Tell them they might want to advertise with us. (Advertisers can contact us at or

More advertisers means more reporters and photographers getting the news you need as soon as you need it.

Thank you again. We love what we do and we hope you love the information we offer.



  • Wheeeeeeeeeee!! Two years. I’m so grateful that my son turned me on to your web site. I don’t know if I can do everything that you asked all of us to do but I’ll give it a whirl.

    • Whoa! Don’t do it all at once. We’re all too busy for that. But each of those ideas will help. Like the Facebook page now is probably the easiest and overall most important. Then when you can, comment or react to posts. Those are the easiest to squeeze in.

      The other ideas are helpful if you can fit them in.

      Thank you for wanting to help though. I appreciate it.

  • Thank you Kym,

    I don’t facebook for some good and some stupid reasons…

    But I look to your blog as much as I do CNN or any other website for news that matters to me. I’m in trinity, and the trinity journal is a once-a-week update on news onljne, where you are multiple stories a day.

    I used to run 3 websites so I know it drains and adds to your life. Hard to figure which more sometimes…

    But again, thank you.

    I have often wondered why you don’t have a donate button, or am I missing it? I bet you would get some well earned donations from your supporters. You deserve the support.

    • I keep thinking about doing a donate button but, honestly, I’d much rather write the news. But you are right. I should do that.

        Yay yay on button. Kim the button will give you more time for News. Think at it from another angle. The button is like retail toy sales . A toy store only makes money say one maybe two months of the year, but they make enough to carry the store for the whole year. Look at what Pierson’s does with theirs . Two months then back to selling garden. So the button will be hit like crazy during the Fire season or any disaster which you are the best. The go to site in California. Folks all over see how hard you are working then and would like to help you. If in order to help you they have to go shop at an advertiser of yours seems a backward way as you say you rather do the news. I will bet you one hundred dollars that you will receive more money from the button than advertisers . PayPal has a button that they say takes 15 minutes to install..
        Always the best , Go
        PS I am not from Sohum doesn’t mean I dont care about you all.

  • On Facebook, a person can click “SEE FIRST” under the “FOLLOWING” tab, and then the posts will pop up first always. I just did. Somehow, I had not LIKED yet, but I was getting your posts often. Now I will see them first. I APPRECIATE your work and the information very much. I know plenty of people who check your page for facts first these days. THANK YOU VERY MUCH!!!

  • Congrats Kim! I’ve enjoyed reading your column these past two years and am looking forward to reading many more!
