The Holly Express began its journey in the summer of 2009, and since then, the readership has gone from a couple hundred readers per day, to nearly 2,000 per day on average. Monthly hits on The Holly Express have surpassed the million mark for the last year and a half – a real milestone of which I’m very proud.
The truth is, I’m pretty much a one woman show here. Not only do I own The Holly Express, but I do most of the editing, I do all of the postings of the articles, pictures and ads that you see, and I do the lion’s share of the writing, attending as many local meetings and community events that I can – all in an effort to keep residents informed of what’s going on in the Holly community.
In the spring of 2012, The Holly Express proudly partnered with the Oakland Press. As part of the agreement, not only do we share reciprocal links to articles on our respective websites, but The Holly Express also shares its top Holly area stories with the Oakland Press so that they may be published in its daily paper publication for all of Oakland County to enjoy.
It's my primary goal to provide solid, accurate and thorough articles on events that matter to Holly area residents.
Thank you for your support. I look forward to making many exciting improvements to the website in the months ahead, and to offering additional options for my readers and advertisers.
