NewBedfordGuide.com celebrated its first birthday on August 11th, 2011. To date, we have published over 363 articles and press releases. We reach about seven thousand local readers and our Facebook page receives about 400,000 monthly post views. Our articles inform New Bedford and SouthCoast Massachusetts readers on local events, news, business spotlights, reviews and more. Most of our articles are written by local, non-professional writers and our press releases come from local non-profits and from the city of New Bedford.
Our overall view is that NewBedfordGuide.com is YOUR voice for New Bedford and surrounding communities. While we do pay our bills with advertising dollars, we don’t charge non-profits, the city of New Bedford and writers to get important messages out. In fact, we pay writers for original content. While we can’t publish every item that is sent to us (we can’t publish publish a press release about your lemonade stand), we do publish many articles and press releases a month. Send your press releases and original stories to firstname.lastname@example.org. Also, send us your feedback because we love to hear them!
