More Sponsor Shout-Outs

We're got three more Spookypalooza sponsors to thank! We'll say it again: a great way to support BlogAsheville is to support any local business, especially one of our sponsors.

Thanks fans! Thanks sponsors! See everybody AGAIN at Posana Cafe on March 18 for the Revived Blogger Meetup!

Mountain Xpress, and the WNC Online Ad Network (coming soon!)

Do we at BlogAsheville need to say more about Mountain Xpress other than it's the true hub of Asheville's digital culture, has KICKASS local coverage, and it's free? Read it in print or online for all the haps around town.

And check out Mtn X's newest digital offering, is a work in progress by Mountain Xpress. Suggestions are encouraged as we add to and evolve the site. is a one-stop portal site for Asheville's emerging online voices and content showing a wide spectrum of participants: from newspapers and television to blogs, forums and Tweets. In addition to text it shows the most recently uploaded local videos and photos.

The WNC Online Ad Network (coming soon...) is designed to help area blogs and Web sites generate ad revenue by offering local merchants a simple way to get their advertising message out locally. The network allows merchants to buy ads on WNC’s most active and creative blogs and Web sites.

The network is a collaborative project spearheaded by Mountain Xpress, based on the belief that by organizing from the grassroots up, the area's blogs and web sites work together to strengthen our own voices and connections. Ad revenues will be split among the participating sites based on impressions served.
