The Humboldt Consequential makes front page news on LoCO!

Guess who just got recognition for being super awesome by being featured on the front page of the Lost Coast Outpost?

That’s right! Your friendly, neighborhood blog – The Humboldt Consequential!

Check it out:

That’s us, at the top!

Aside from our really shitty ad design and photoshop skills, we’re pretty proud.

Thanks again to Lost Coast Outpost – and by proxy, LoCO’s owner Patrick Cleary (of HAF) – for hooking us up with the front page digs.

We’d also like to thank our fans, readers, and people who send us all that hate mail. Without you folks, we’d never have achieved this. We started from the bottom, and now we’re like slightly higher up than that. Maybe even approaching the middle.

    Keep at it! I didn’t know Cleary was involved with, that DOES explain a lot.

    You guys are hilarious! Advertising on LOCO, what an awesome stunt.


  3. Advocacy for whom exactly? says:

    HAF is hiring! THis was posted to my Nextdoor neighborhood page (among a few others) $20-25 an hour. Brief lowdown of the post. I cut out a lot of it, but email links go back to admin at the bottom. Is Saucedo the “admin” reading the resumes? Is she expanding her territory and the number of $40k a year employees?
