Bed bug forums the focus of The Daily Dot

December 9, 2014

The Daily Dot has a new story about our bed bug forums by Anna Drezen, herself a Bedbugger Forum user who made some of the typical mistakes one makes when one suspects bed bugs: I really wish I’d found Bedbugger.com right away, because my instincts about how to address the situation were dead wrong. I […]

We are six today.

Bedbugger.com was started on this day in 2006. First it was a bed bug blog with FAQs.  In March of 2007, the forums were added. And since then, the site has grown and grown. According to SiteMeter, we’ll get our 14 millionth unique site visitor sometime this morning.   Google Analytics is a bit more conservative, […]

15 minutes of fame come and gone

December 8, 2007

We were part of a radio station’s answer to a trivia question, and we had no idea! It was 1015 The Point in Tampa, Florida’s Nearly Impossible Question, and we have no idea when, but suspect it was after Tampa’s News 10 mentioned us last April. Anyway, this is old news. Eight months later, bed […]

Huffington Post on bed bugs (part II); bedbugger.com and google

October 22, 2007

Nicholas Brown continued his bed bug diary on the Huffington Post last week, sharing a saga which is remarkably similar to that of many of our readers.

Too busy to remember to buy a cake?

October 8, 2007

Hey Bedbuggers, Sometimes the day to day running of the blog and forums, on top of other responsibilities, means the details take a backseat. So last Tuesday was actually the one-year anniversary of the blog. And though all day long I had a strange feeling, like I had forgotten someone’s birthday (and I could not, […]
