About Julia Sweeten
I was working in publishing as a writer and editor at the time, so this began as a fun thing to do on the weekends. I hoped to find kindred spirits who’d get as excited as I did over a pretty cottage or a swoon-worthy farmhouse.
This site took off, though, and grew so big, so fast, it became my full-time focus in 2010.
In 2012 I published the now-infamous post explaining how House Hunters really works, and I still hear from fans who are angry I “ruined it” for them. (Sorry, guys! Don’t shoot the messenger!)
After more than a decade of blogging and over 80 million visitors, I know a lot of you are hooked on houses, too. It’s great to have you here! 🙂
We built our sunroom in 2010 and it’s my favorite spot in the house.
