To An Astounding April: The Best Of PBH Network In April

It’s been quite an April for the PBH Network: over 5 million visitors, our first (record-setting!) 500,000 visitor day, and over 3,600 fans on Facebook. With such a great month, we wanted to recap the best performing content from April from across the PBH Network:

5. What Happens When A Hippie Gives You 30 Hits Of Acid

Our unnamed protagonist — a worker at a local coffee shop — describes how he would leave out food for the homeless, only to have his generosity repaid one fateful evening by a local hippie who proceeded to put 30 hits of acid into his mouth. What would follow was an incredible journey told brilliantly by the narrator.

Let’s Get Personal

Prose Before Hos

It’s been a while since I’ve done something like this. Back when ProseBeforeHos got started in 2005, it existed as an outlet for personal musings without a direction or purpose. Up until 2008, we were lucky to get 100 hits a day.

With a little perseverance and a lot of internet addiction, ProseBeforeHos developed into 5 different sites that would form the PBH Network. By April 2010, we hit a new marker of over 2 million visitors in a month. This April, we surpassed 4 million visitors a month.

Needless to say, I never imagined this happening, as I had always thought that PBH would be a hobby-horse as I meandered through life. Now, PBH has become a full-time commitment, not only for me, but a couple of other people. Truth be told, it’s really intimidating and isolating, and I still haven’t found a way to explain what we do to others (what do you do when the most serious website you run is called ProseBeforeHos?).

I want to say thanks especially to Kit — the intrepid PBH co-founder, contributor, and all around tech wizard — for his help in this transformation, our fans and visitors for enjoying our content, and everyone else that’s been along for the ride. We have some really exciting things going on with PBH that we hope will improve the experience of using our sites and increase the community and caliber of the PBH Network. Thanks again everyone.

Always,
Alec

Write For ProseBeforeHos

Do you enjoy receiving money in exchange for goods and services? Well even if you don’t, you (yes, you!) should consider writing for ProseBeforeHos. We’re looking for writers on subjects as diverse as politics, international development/relations, culture, sports, and economics. You’ll be paid as handsomely as possible, have a large forum for others to read your content, and get to work with an up and coming website. To apply, send to pbhnetwork@gmail.com a writing sample and explain 1) why cultural/ethnic chauvinism is a significant barrier to social justice; or 2) why Bill Simmons is the worst sports writer alive.

Interested in writing but with a less serious bent? All That Is Interesting is also hiring content creators.
