Sometimes friends and customers ask why First Security Bank has a blog that’s not about banking. It’s a good question!
You see – First Security Bank loves serving people in Arkansas. We love living and working in Arkansas. For this reason, we are Only In Arkansas. And we love to celebrate it.
We started OnlyInArk.com on April 21, 2014, with the hope that we could spread the good news about Arkansas. We wanted to tell the stories you may not see anywhere else – great stories of places to visit, events to attend, restaurants to enjoy, and businesses unique to our state. We have covered everything from digging crystals to card factories and rugby teams. Some of my favorites feature Arkansans making products and differences in our communities.
With over 1,700 stories and 4.5 million page views, we think there is something for everyone to enjoy. Today we share some of the most-read and most-loved stories from the last four years about our favorite subject – Arkansas.
Unique Arkansas Getaways – Julie Kohl wrote the most-read story in OnlyInArk.com history back in April 2015. It has been read nearly 200,000 times so far.
